One of the mysteries of the human species is that of missing socks. Surely when you put an even number of socks into a dryer and come out with an odd number of socks it goes without saying that something is a foot here!
Current theory is that socks are cannibalistic. Left socks eat right socks and vice versa. The tumbling motion tends to get them excited and they nip at each other. You didn't think your heel was that sharp did you?
You don't believe me? You think I'm trying to pull the wool over your eyes? Well let me show you that this theory has just a bit more than a toe hold in reality and you can judge for yourself to boot!
Here is the evidence:
This behavior explains the phenomena of lint it's not lint at all but crumbs left behind after a meal!
Have you ever found a sock in the filter or up a pant leg? How did it get there? It's obvious. It was hiding there!
They bite holes in each other. You didn't really think your heel was that sharp did you?
This also explains why when you put only one sock in a dryer, it never turns up missing!
Have you noticed that lint is never black or pure white but gray? This proves that socks are equal opportunity eaters!
So next time you load your dryer, give your socks a wave and a smile. It just might be the last you see of your argyle!
