Separating the Feet from the Chafe

A couple of nights ago I saw a woman get on the bus wearing three-quarter length trousers and the thinnest, most insubstantial slipper-shoes I’ve ever seen, with no socks. This at 9pm on a cold Monday night, with a vicious wind and icy puddles everwhere. Madness, or am I just getting old? Anyway, if you’re a sock fan like me you might be interested in finding out where and how they were invented, and also what makes for ‘the ultimate sock’ - as decided by a team of Biological Engineers from the University of Missouri-Columbia. Visit: http://whyfiles.org/shorties/197socks/. Fascinating stuff indeed.
