Test your skills of deduction with the July 2022 edition of Riddle Me This: Stealing Bell Ropes

You are locked in a room that is fifty feet wide by fifty feet long with a one hundred foot tall ceiling. You are a skilled acrobat and you are carrying a sharp knife. Attached to the ceiling are two hooks that are two feet apart, and tied to each hook is a one hundred foot long rope. Each rope hangs all the way down to the ground. There is nothing in the room to stand on and if you fall from any higher than twenty feet you will die.

Using only your climbing skills and your knife, how much of the two hundred feet of rope can you acquire while ending up safe on the ground?
