Here’s a picture I took when I was sorting socks a few months ago:

Look at all these different bastards! What for? Can the human race not agree on a black sock style?

What I’d like is a standardized black sock specification. So I could always buy replacement or additional socks that match the ones I already own. Please: open source community, W3C, Creative Commons — somebody help make sense of this important issue.

Wow. I thought I was all alone in the world with this problem…

I believe socks are covered in the new Copyright Act. However, they will be DRM protected henceforth as well, so you will have to pay Hayes royalties each time you wear them.

This is a two step process:

1 Throw away all existing socks

2 Go to and order some socks. You now have 10 pairs of socks that are totally easy to pair up

Actually, probably should do Step 2 first.

i think the more urgent matter is implementing a try-before-you-buy sock (and underwear) system.

oh wow. i thought my husband was the only one who had this sock conundrum.

i like orijimi’s comment, though, not too sure about the underwear part. *raises eyebrow*
