[xlt] Are Socks Evil?

i am not really sure, myself. socks are generally the norm,
so let's start by examining why.

~ socks are an important part of a healthy foot ecosystem.
evidence: during summer camp in middle school, i
decided socks were for suckaz and didn't wear them for,
wood-cabin-bunk-bed-gym-showers-after-swimming-in-lake-what
like, a week -- in a bone foote tathefukeva scenario. my
feet were not happy -- no, in fact, the results were
somewhat terrifying.

beyond that, i find short periods without socks can leave me
feet feeling sticky, and even a good shower doesn't always
get off the stick. it can persist for ages... it bothers me.
it bothers me almost as much as a sock being on wrong,
except you can't take it off. until it wears off.

then again, when you do yoga on the porch rug in bare feet,
you get to thinking: yeah, alright, perhaps that character
actor in Die Hard I really had a good point -- making fists
with your toes (to ground them) is an important layer in
maslow's hierarchy of needs, especially if you're spending a
lot of time off in space.

it's an odd contrast. this porch rug smells like dog shit,
and this bothers you supremely, because, theoretically, your
feet might smell like dog shit later. but, the anxiety is
gone. your balls are sunning themselves gently. sort of like
how you feel when you wake up on a sunny sunday, and snooze
in bed, except you're doing yoga on the porch. on the dog
shit porch rug. in bare feet.

are socks evil? i'm not sure. on the one hand, they keep
your feet from smelling like dog shit. on the other hand,
socks seem to contribute heavily to anxiety disorders

why do they contribute to anxiety disorders?

first, watch the fists with your toes scene from die hard i. ok?

now, did you ever actually try this? when john mcclane makes
fists with his toes in the carpet in die hard i, he says,
"son of a bitch!" to emote how utterly shocked it is that
this fucking shit worked and if you have tried it you would
already know you would say son of a bitch, too. just like
mcclane

anyways, anxiety is possibly a deficiency in contact between
self and environment. the socks constrain the toes and form
a boundary that is maintained throughout most of waking life
without our giving it even a passing thought. similar to a
man spending a long period in an isolation tank, eventually
your feet dissociate, and from there it's sort of like the
thing in virtual reality about a virtual nose -- if you
can't feel the ground under your feet, touching your toes,
you're just floating off into space.

if we had to wear socks on our hands, I think we would get
very depressed.

if we did not wear socks on our feet, we would know how to
pick up things with our toes.we could even code computers
and play instruments with our toes.

I believe wearing socks in bed is bad for our health.

but they keep our shoes more clean.

too long.

Once I was staying for a few weeks in a run-down hostel on
Hollywood Boulevard. I was sharing the room with a
psychologically unhealthly guy from Texas who was of Mexican
descent. He would start singing Limp Bizkit in the middle of
the night or suddenly say "Sup? Sup? Sup? Sup? Sup?" in the
middle of the night and ask me question such as "What is $50
minus $10?".

Then once, during the daytime, while he was spraying
anti-foot-fungus spray on his socks he offered me some of it
and invited me to use it. Even though it wasn't SUPER
strange, I still find that experience pretty strange.

socks are not evil. they keep you warm especially when you
have diarrrea. have you ever had diarrrea and your feet were
cold and you needed to take a shit but your home was far far
away? ugly situation.

Noooooooo!!! Socks are evil when worn with sandals!

But yeah, we could debate over weather a knife is evil,
which I would argue isn't. Socks? Well to each his own
anxieties.

do you know about the guy that took a piss outside somewhere
really cold... i think it was antarctica but i don't know.
then he forgets to zip and his penis freezes and goes all
black and falls off.

when i was in college, i was in some frat house to smoke
some weed. one of the guys took out a bottle of gold bond,
and rubbed it on his balls. offers the bottle to another
guy. he does the same. eventually i am offered: do i want
some gold bond to put on my balls?

at this point i am rather unnerved. i enquire why i would
want such a thing? "oh, it makes your balls feel super
fresh." dubious, i decline. they shrug and continue gold
bonding their balls.

i still have no idea what the shit. just, like. what the
shit

there be mice called "knockout mice" and they be called
knockout mice because genes have been knocked out. you can
order up knockout mice for "autism" and get a science-grade
mouse with the right genetic wrongs to do lab experiments on
austistic mice.

all mice compulsively groom themselves, but autistic mice go
way overboard. groom groom groom. fuss with it all day.
can't tolerate a hair being out of place. it's worse than a
sock being on wrong

i think it was either jnasato or mermaidman who made some
comment about it being an ultimate race war between the
squeaky-clean anal-retentives and the grody barefoot
hippies. once side represents science/socks run amok, while
the other represents a complete rejection of science/socks.

i figure we'll just opt for a balanced approach; wear socks
for life, take them off to earth my toes into the carpet
like xltronic posts

There are few greater feelings in our perceived reality than
that of putting on brand new socks. If I were rich, I would
never wear the same pair of socks twice. Once worn and
washed, their magic is forever lost.

When warm, from the drier, or ironing (I don't iron my
socks) it's even better.

Socks are not evil. It's not that difficult to work out.

I love how he made a thread recently but truthfully couldn't
give two shits about our responses.
