Since this is the first post of 2006 and will kind of set the tone for the new year, I want to kick things off with something weighty and substantial:
Why do I need my socks to come in a resealable ziplock bag? On the packaging of most athletic socks this now seems to be an actual selling point: "Now in resealable bag!" Will the socks somehow go stale if I take them out and put them in a drawer? Am I supposed to store them back inside the baggie after I've worn them?
