I don’t care who you are, or where you live, there is a sock-devouring monster that lives somewhere in your house. It doesn’t matter if you connect your pairs of socks together with a chain made of some special aluminum alloy, your partnered pairs of socks will not stay together. If you have a house with multiple people, it is even worse. So you do your laundry and end up with several left-overs which you dump in your drawer anyway reasoning that maybe next time those socks will find their mate. They never do.
So this is a cute idea for people who actually have laundry rooms- leave your unmatched socks somewhere visible so that when their long lost lovers finally do show up, they will be easy to locate and reunite.[ via ]
