It's a first world problem, but still annoys me as well.

Sufficiently advanced incompetence is indistinguishable from malice. There’s a certain point at which ignorance becomes malice, at which there is simply no way to become THAT ignorant except deliberately and maliciously.

I have polygamist socks and they're all the same colour. I'm a very racist person when it comes to sox. :biggrin:

Socks/sox? What is it?

Congrats, you have figured out how to beat the dryer, that gulper of sox…socks.

Let me guess, they are all black, right?

So many have referred to Putz’s foot coverings as sox that I have adopted the misspelling as well.

Rumour has it that gasoline prices in the Okanagan could be $2 per/litre (+/- 15 cents) by summer time, ouch.

If so I wonder how many people will be switching to an EV.

It probably is. Did you buy the memory-foam socks Norma?

They remember right from wrong side, and left vs right foot.

Filthy things!

I find most of these are just ads to sell you something. I exit them pretty fast.
