its a problem when the sock fills the darn and not the other way round.  So is that where 'darn it' came from?

no, metasockmorphis is what you get when you try to wash 20 pairs of tights in a nylon bag in the washer.  
Let me put it this way, Gordian was green eyed....

yet another branch of mathematics: tight knotting

The Gordian Variable G, is given by

G = B, n(n-1), t ( t+10>x)

where B is the bag value either 0 or 1
n is the number of pairs of tights n-i brackets is a power
t is temparature where is more than 10 degrees over the recommended.

No, no.  The washer is your friend.  The dryer is your enemy.  The washer ties them all together because it knows the dryer wants to eat them.

I think they should have a magnet in them or a chip that attracts them together..so they are always paired up properly
