pretty funny. so by buying 2 packs you get a free pair (2x3=6 socks) and no more extra socks. ;-)

good point!

however, even with a full 3rd pair (dependent on 2x same pattern of course) you'd likely only be able to account for 1.7 pairs on a lucky, not-needed-immediately parameter search of socks' known roaming areas. the hypothesis is based on previous test results that, alas, are awaiting publication, so keep checking back with us. if we were more mathematically motivated, we'd figure out and demonstrate with a few nifty vens the loss vs needs-laundering probabilities. being sunday and all, we must respectfully and morally decline working, especially maths. you're more than welcome submit* results for review and possible future publication.


it's the weekend - turn off the computer!
