What socks are you rocking? Do you only buy 1 brand so you dont need to think when getting dressed or doing laundry?

That implies I actually sort my socks while doing laundry instead of just throwing them all in my drawer and finding matches later.

I have 2 different brands currently that I was trying out.

What's your preferred sick length? I'm crew socks now, always had issues with shorter socks on my giant feet.

I treat socks as an accessory so I usually wear socks with fun designs or pictures. I have a variety of brands for plain white socks for working out, doing yard work, etc...so I guess I'm not picky for brand.

I usually just go with black, ankle length socks. Brand isn't too important.

I get a new pack of these like every 6 months and throw away the old ones. I havent had to wear dress socks in 3 years so I just wear these with everything. I've been doing this for about 3 years.

Stepping out of the shower onto a freshly washed and dried shower mat. It's so soft! Within a day it's matted down.

I know. I know. We should have a spongy one that doesn't absorb water.
Itching a bug bite. My legs are bitten up from being in the yard and I go to town on them with Evie's telescoping back scratcher. Feels so good but now I have scabs forming!

But the space saved in the garage...priceless

Cheapest thing returned to a store :think:. Probably a gallon of milk.

Ok why though. I'd have a hard time returning food just because I'd feel weird about it knowing they'd likely have to throw it out

It was bad as soon as I opened it the day I brought it home. Could've been a bad lot, I could've just tossed it out but I kind of hoped it spurred them to see if it was a larger issue.

That's fair in that case. I'm just picturing old person style returning a $2 package of noodles and complaining about it like I've seen at the store.

Hunter's milk return story reminds me of my food return story. A package of cheese so probably $2? Opened up the package, and it was moldy.

That's how bleu cheese is supposed to look.

I have returned berried within minutes of getting home from the store because they were moldy. I agree Hunter, it wasn't about the money but to show the grocery store what's up.

If the whole world stops sneezing, how long would it take for people to notice?

What other mundane thing could happen globally and how long would it take people to notice?

Sneezing - a few hours to a few days depending on season and who you are with.

I have seasonal allergies and take a daily pill. I don't think I would notice if I stopped sneezing because that's not my main symptom. I would realize it until it was posted on reddit weeks/months later

I think this would be more obvious than sneezing. It would be a bit creepy and get noticed the first time you speak to someone for more than 30 seconds.

definitely it would get noticed quicker than sneezing. I just like the thought process of "man, this person hasn't blinked the entire time I've been talking to them. Wait a second I can't remember the last time I blinked."

I would have noticed sneezing a lot quicker when I was living with Adam Nielsen. Guy was sneezing all the time.

Cutting your fingernails. You notice they are long and then you cut them, but if you went weeks without cutting them would you think anything of it?
