I haven't done a load of laundry in three years. I have it done by a wash, dry, fold service. Once you get over the fact that a stranger is touching all your stuff, it's a beautiful thing. I pick up my clothes and they're clean, soft, folded, separated, and in bags. All I have to do is put them in the right drawers.

QFT. the wife does most of anyway though

I do most of my own, that's why most everything I have gets hung up, all my shirts anyway. Really the only thing I fold is pants, shorts, sweats. I have an underwear drawer, a sock drawer, and an undershirt drawer...I don't fold any of that stuff, I just pile it in. :-b

You know, the only thing worse than folding my clothes is folding Shannon's clothes. Her clothes are so small sometimes I feel like I'm folding doll clothes. :-B

I hate folding laundry too. I even hang my undershirts and pants. Socks and boxers get stuffed in a drawer, and the only things that get folded are jeans and shorts.

I wear A-Shirts (wife beaters) as undershirts, they just get jammed in a drawer. Hanging them would suck almost as much as folding them. And yeah any pants that aren't jeans get hung up. Most of what I wear are jeans and shorts so that's usually all I'm washing.

Life is way too short to spend any of it folding socks and underwear. :-b

I've convinced my wife to stop folding my underwear, but she insists on "neatly arranging" my socks. I suppose if it pleases her, it's not a big deal. But the folding of the underwear baffled me.

my wife pairs my socks for me by rolling them up together, although she often mixes up white socks with different types of bands

Confirmed: most bikers are alright and most drivers are stupid. I was driving to class yesterday and there was a biker on the street riding 1-2 feet from the curb. Of the three cars in front of me, all three swerved into the left lane, two honked their horns, and one seriously risked an accident. I just nonchalantly drove perfectly straight in the middle of the right lane and smiled and waved at the biker as I was passing him.

I think most people go over into the other lane because of liability. What if the person lost control of their bike and you ended up running over them? Even though it really is their fault, I'm not sure it would go over so easily in court.

How do you "lose control" of your bike on flat, dry ground? You're just as likely to "lose control" of your car and people feel perfectly safe tailgating and driving right alongside each other in the rain at 65+ mph. Besides, the risk of someone "losing control" of their bike at that moment was infinitesimal compared to the risk of an accident when that one guy swerved between two cars in the left lane. Occam's Razor v2.0: the solution that most likely involves people being idiots is usually the correct one.

I dunno, I think that type of stuff works both ways. I don't think there's anything about being a cyclist that makes you inherently smarter than someone who's driving a car. I think people just get caught up in the "us vs. them" mentality and lose perspective a little. I've seen people swerve too far to avoid cyclists often but I've seen a lot of idiot cyclists as well. It always blows my mind when I see someone dressed in full cyclist gear who's decided that Friday rush hour in the busiest parts of the city is a good time/place to get their exercise in. Really, there are bike paths only minutes away but I guess because they're legally allowed to be on the road, courtesy goes out the window and "I'm gonna ride on the road and nobody can stop me". By the time I pass and fall behind the same cyclist for the sixth time because of traffic lights and already-cramped driving conditions, I'm just about ready to run the guy over.

Having said that, I agree there is no shortage of dumb drivers but it's a much larger sample size, so maybe it seems like they are dumber overall. :-b

I'm pro biking and ride myself often, but your little experience there hardly "confirms" anything Neato. There as just as many dumbass bicyclists as there are dumbass motorists. Portland is the second most bicycle friendly city in the U.S. so I see my fair share of bicyclists vs. motorists everyday. I've seen just as much stupidity out of bicyclists as I have motorists.

Absolutely. They're probably the same people driving a different vehicle at the time. An idiot's an idiot whether they're on a bike or in a car... :-b
