    I have to take off the glasses and take out the hearing aids to put on a full face. Can't put the hearing aids back on, so it's nice and quiet when I ride.

    I accidentally put my helmet on with my hearing aids on.

    I could not get my helmet off.

    I had to wiggle a finger in to get the hearing aids out, took the helmet off and had to look on the ground for the $3000 hearing aids.

    I sure don't want to ever do that again.

    The noise is still there even if you can't hear it and it still does damage.

    ps Note to self, do not throw up McDonalds crap with a full face helmet on. Had to pull over and get the gloves off, get the glasses off, get the helmet off. And yet I still had McDonalds for lunch today.

    Note, don't lay the valve stem cap on the chip and sealed driveway when putting air in the tire. Hummmmm

    Don't try to match my socks that mingle in the dresser. It is hopeless.

    A gravel driveway isn't much better, especially with a metallic colored cap :bluduh

    Sometimes I wear ladies nylon socks with my motorcycle boots because of foot problems.

    The minute differences makes the sorting a disaster also but who cares except for the black lacy sexy pair.

    Socks. I buy a pack of white cotton socks and a pack of black cotton socks, each pack all exactly the same. Then toss all the other socks in the drawer. Stop making your life complicated.

    When I buy a new pack (or 3) of socks, I throw all the old ones in the garage to use as rags. Problem solved.

    I meant to say you toss away the old socks. They can be good for cleaning and dusting if they are all cotton. You can pull one on your hand and scrub away at things.

    Cotton socks are the devil. Get wet and stay wet = trench foot.

    Put 1/2 cup of white vinegar in the rinse water when you launder your socks. No more athlete's foot. Dunno about trench foot. Keeps towels from getting musty, too.

    I work in construction and I wear boots 12+ hours a day. Often in hot weather, be it the Gulf Coast or southern Arizona. My life changed when I switched to buying high quality wool socks. Yes, they're $20 a pair or whatever. You don't need that many, and the difference long-term is unbelievable.

    Also, darn tough has a lifetime warranty on their socks. Read that again slowly. Lifetime warranty. On socks.
