So Much Technology, So Little Time

Because we get overwhelmed with constant news, it almost becomes a situation that there is an "Information overload" and the really important developments just get lost among it all. This is the story of one such technological advancement.

Self Cleaning Underwear That's right, the USA has moved to the forefront of self cleaning underwear science, and most of us were busy worrying about trivial things like the collapse of our economy. Not that the economy isn't important (it probably is) but your mom never reminded you to always have a dollar in your pocket. Nope, she wanted to make sure you had on clean underwear in case you got in an accident.

And now, thanks to some brilliant scientists, we will always have clean underwear.

And it was a bargain, only a bit over $20 million, to keep those Fruit of the Loom guys fresh and clean.

Well it certainly would obliterate those piles of panties and boxer briefs into landfills! Not that I will be contributing to that nonsense. LOL! :)

LL said...

Wha? You mean you can't wear underwear for a week straight right now? Why not?

Lauren said...

Well I guess for people like Obama and Pelosi who are always full of shit, this is a much needed technology and worth every penny of ours for their pleasure.

Janna said...

Hopefully they'll make a heavy-duty version for those days when I am craving hot bean burritos.

LOL @ Janna!!!!!

And here I thought just turning those undies inside out solved that cleanliness problem!

Collette said...

We need more self-cleaning things in this world! It gives us more time to read & write important blogs like this one! Now, just give me a self-cleaning house & I'd be all set!

Mr. Condescending said...

But crotchety, what will you do with all the panties those gals send you? You won't be able to sniff them anymore.

Joel Klebanoff said...

As far as I'm concerned, the more self-cleaning stuff they invent, the better -- as long as they don't give us self-cleaning minds. Let's not take away all of the fun.

I thought the solution was going Commando!

Don said...

I'll stick with cotton. Besides having extra, unknown bacteria crawling around does not appeal to me. Anyway, where does the liquid go once it beads? They don't say that part...In your socks?

Pricilla said...

All the more reason it is good to be a goat and just squat and go wherever you want. Poop at one's pleasure as well. It's a good life...

Da Old Man said...

@ Lady Sarcasm: Would help

@ LL: And you wonder why no one sits near you at the bar.

@ Lauren: Keeps our politicians laundry day fresh

@ Janna: Industrial strength. BTW, Volcano tacos are back at the Bell.

@ Shyne: Sure, that works for a few days.

@ Collette: We have to work on that.

@ Mr C: That was our little secret.

@ Joel: That will never happen

@ Reforming: Underwear is too important to our way of life.

@ Don: Just what we need. Socks dripping with naughty bits sweat.

Da Old Man said...

@ Pricilla: Goats do have it all figured out, it seems.

dizzblnd said...

wow.. let's say first you say it then you do it.. is the self cleaning instantaneous?
THAT would be worth it

Chris @ Maugeritaville said...

And let me just say, "It's about damn time."

FishHawk said...

I warned the guys over at Tide and Cheer that if they didn't stop fighting each other something like this was going to happen.

Winky Twinky said...

Uuhhh...I'm with Don on this one! Might be something good for the Military since they have to be in the trenches half the time... but I'll stick to the tried and true.. besides, my first thought too was WHERE does it go?.. running down your legs doesn't seem to solve anything...I'm Just Sayin...
