I pin my socks together with diaper pins.  (What are they called in England, "nappies" I think?)  One can also buy these little plastic ring things with "teeth" in the center that will hold socks together in the wash.

The proviso is that the pins can snag on some fabrics so I wash my socks alone.  An extra step but worth the effort to avoid trying to match up vanishing socks.

you mean they come out in the same pairs they went in with???  miracles will happen...
I know if I tried that they would secretly unpin and exchange so that no two pinned together pair would be remotely simililar...

yes I must get my act together and pinning them together will stop them from losing each other but most of the time I am so much of a hurry I check in clothes and move onto the next job! never giving it another thought!

thats the socks deluding you.  they are like the ancient sirens , sing songs of distraction until you have tossed them in the washing machine and pushed that on button - then you can hear them cackling madly as they plan their escapes...

Well I suppose two socks could simultaneously quantum tunnel and exchange places.  I mean there IS a finite probability of that happening.

He's over here - hanging out with Nick and Nora.  I wondered who that third fellow was... and why he seems to be alternating playing dead and playing with that toy mouse....

maybe its the spin cycle creating a wormhole through which the socks escape.

Maybe that Googlebot took them.  Anyone seen a robot walking around with mismatched socks?

Three billion human's socks disappeared on August 29, 2097. The survivors of the nuclear fire called the war Judgment Day. They lived only to face a new nightmare- the war against the socks. The computer which controlled the socks, Socknet, sent two sockinators back through time. Their mission: to destroy the leader of the human Resistance. John Connor; my son. The first sockinator was programmed to strike at me, in the year 1984, before John was born. It failed. The second was sent to strike at John himself, when he was still a child. As before, the Resistance was able to send a lone warrior. A protector for John. It was just a question of which one of them would reach him first.
