Where does the other sock ever go? Is there a sock black hole?
There is a dark energy hiding deep inside dryers that scientist learned about years ago but refused to speak about. To dry out socks has been something that we have been wondering how to do for millennia. I believe it's a matter of cleaning the lint trap every 5th Tuesday of the month.
It actually winds up at your local water district treatment plant... apparently it gets sucked out the top of the drum in the washer and gets into the drainage system... when my daughter was in 4th grade they did a field trip to the water treatment plant where we were all informed that they had all the neighborhood's missing socks...
Since reading this book in my teens I've fervently believed this is also where the single socks gou:
Douglas Adams "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy"
“Somewhere in the cosmos, he said, along with all the planets inhabited by humanoids, reptiloids, fishoids, walking treeoids and superintelligent shades of the color blue, there was also a planet entirely given over to ballpoint life forms. And it was to this planet that unattended ballpoints would make their way, slipping away quietly through wormholes in space to a world where they knew they could enjoy a uniquely ballpointoid lifestyle, responding to highly ballpoint-oriented stimuli, and generally leading the ballpoint equivalent of the good life.
And as theories go this was all very fine and pleasant until Veet Voojagig suddenly claimed to have found this planet, and to have worked there for a while driving a limousine for a family of cheap green retractables, whereupon he was taken away, locked up, wrote a book and was finally sent into tax exile, which is the usual fate reserved for those who are determined to make fools of themselves in public.”
