    Talking about socks... why don't manufacturers ever sell socks in packs of three? I mean, when you have a pair, one always goes missing and you end up with one odd sock on its own. But if they came in threes, there would always be a spare sock for when the one goes missing. Odd sock problem solved.

    Really, how so? Nevermind, I'll accept that as the best, most creative answer.

    Your reward for that winning answer is a used pair of @Fridgemagnetman 's dirty Socks!

    I always imagined somebody asking me if I had a hobby.

    I would answer " I collect fridgemagnets."

    They would say "How many have you got?"

    "One "

    Oh! Oh! Oh! I have a solution to this problem.

    Always buy socks in multiple pairs. Three pairs, six pairs, etc.

    It cuts down greatly on (but does not eliminate) the solo sock problem.

    Have you tried darning your own socks or joining a sock club?

    Not so silly as it seems, joining a club may help you meet people in a different setting.

    Knowing the difference between fictional and real is a crucial life skill.
    So,love who you want, and kep going imo

    What is your secret for opening stuck jars?

    Got beaten by one full of sweet-sour gherkins today, looking for revenge now. And better gherkins.
    (The jar embarrassed me by getting easily opened by my 1.5 m tall little scrawny flatmate after I kept trying for more than half-hour with no effect...)

    Run the lid of the jar under warm water for about 30 seconds, turning the jar so the water hits all the way around the lid.

    Then, gently tap the lid on the counter a few times, again, rotating the jar as you do so. Emphasis on gently - you just want to loosen it, not dent it or break glass.

    Finally, use a towel around the lid to increase your grip.
