    When I set an alarm, the time always ends in a 3.

    5:33
    6:03
    7:13

    etc.
    The older I get, the faster I was.






    Punch it, Chewie.

    I bought a bunch of Smart Wool ski socks, like 24 pair.

    They are 3 different color schemes, other than that they are the same socks.

    I bugs me to not match them.
    Ooof!

    Yes Dave. We realize that we're not talking about true OCD.


    True OCD: When I was in med school back in the 70's the chief of neurosurgery was doing prefrontal lobotomies to treat ocd. He showed us a video--in the first part this woman described how they would pass a pile of rags on the highway and she would worry about it and worry about it and 100 miles later she would make her husband turn the car around and go back to check to make sure it wasn't an injured person. In the second part of the video the husband described how the surgery had cured his wife of the problem. The wife just sat there and didn't say anything.

    Don't be too hard on Dr Schneider though--his big thing way back then was trying to invent a better football helmet. Way ahead of his time on that one, way behind the times on lobotomies.

    i used to do this (we get the 18-count boxes)
    then i did symmetry or patterns
    now i try to make it look un-patterned & thoroughly random...but, then, i'm never really sure if it's random...because, even truly random might have what looks like pattern...and the wife gets in there and ruins the perfection...

    You have to arrange them so the load is evenly distributed when picking up the carton. I re-use them as long as possible, and doing this helps. I'm always mindful of weight distribution and load stress, wether it's an egg carton, a dishwasher rack or my ski carrier; I want all my shit to last as long as possible, including my tired worn out body.

    When I was a freshman in college there was this guy on my floor who was constantly in the bathroom washing his hands. Constantly. I had no idea what his name was but I started calling him Gene, so whenever I walked in the bathroom and he was in there washing, which was basically always, I'd say "Hi Gene!"

    A little ocd humor.

    I take the eggs out starting at the center, then evenly work towards both ends, maintaining something close to symmetry.

    Kinda/sorta like the concept of perimeter weighting of some skis, a bit of extra mass bias at the ends of the carton keeps it more stable in the hand while handling the carton. In fact, the egg carton thingy was part of the inspiration to keep the mass of my tip 'n' tail xtenderz on my darksides on the skis...and they track and truck a bit better that way.

    why don't you ^^ just get longer skis ?

    Fun fact here, the only reason you wierdo's get to obsess over how to empty an egg carton is that In 1911, newspaper editor Joseph Coyle of Smithers, British Columbia invented the egg carton, to solve a dispute between a local farmer and hotel owner in Aldermere, near present-day Telkwa, in British Columbia, over the farmer's eggs' often being delivered broken.

    See the first one again. You guys aren't OCD. You are just pains in the ass.

    lol, where's the fun in that? With the removable units, adjust length to suit snow conditions/terrain/personal interest for the day. Trucking long, deep, cadillac float turns through thigh deep Surprise Creek Silk is better with; pivoty/tight schmears and jump turns down 40 degree old growth on compacted wet grains around the town of Stewart is better without.

    I think my wife's failure to understand this played a small role in our upcoming divorce. What kind of fucking monster would load it the other way? ;-)

    Sorry, not sorry.

    I struggle not to correct split infinitives. And I only have two colors of socks, about 6 pairs of each, Smartwool too. Matching and lost singles are not a problem.

    lol

    Every now and then I’ll arrange the eggs in the carton so they’re alternate:
    * 0
    0 *
    * 0
    0 *
    * 0
    0 *

    That made my wife laugh sadly.
    And I guess that I just don't know

    Egg cartons or skis?

    Have the next length up for both.

    For the Darksides; kinka prefer the slightly softer flex, suspension and perimeter weighting feel of the 174's with tipntailxtendrz to 181's...181's are a lil planky, still good, but...a bit planky.

    The first egg box was invented in London. The modern egg carton was patented in the US (in 1969!). I understand why some might call one of the intermediate designs from Canada THE definitive egg carton--everyone needs to feel like they matter.
