The Laundromat At The Edge Of The Universe

String Theory implies that there may be multiple dimensions existing simultaneously. 






According to the Bosonic Theory there are 26 spacetime dimensions.




The Superstring Theory claims there are 10 dimensions.




Maxwell's Theory or the "Theory of Everything" states rather pompously that there are definitely 11 dimensions.





Riddle me this Batman.  Where in the hell are my socks?

All photographs have my signature embedded and are source traceable to my camera. Copy, crop, paste and you'll wake up with yer head in one dimension and yer arse in another.

I'm probably going to be taking Thursday and Friday off. Hubby isn't doing well and I've a home health care worker coming in to help out. I'll stop in when I can and comment and I may just post a Late Night Edition sometime this weekend.

  2. I think Jerry Seinfeld was right, our socks do make their great escape from the laundry somehow and retire to an island of mismatched socks somewhere unbeknownst to us!

    Lovely pictures! Hope hubby feels right as rain soon-soon! :)

    1. I think there's some alternate reality inhabited entirely by socks. Our washers must work as worm-holes for them.

  5. Can that laundromat get any yellower? Maybe in the other dimension that place is green instead.

    1. I cranked the yellow saturation up on it deliberately.

  6. I'd love to copy these photos but the consequences are kind of scary so I'll do my best to stay away Anne, haha! Seriously though, here's hoping your husband gets better, I'm sorry to hear his health has dropped slightly again.

    1. I need to take some of the time when I have help off, just to sleep or to read a good book instead of blogging so I can handle the rest of the week.

    1. I need to send Guido into the alternate dimension to retrieve the socks.

    2. I can tweak the cat time fraction machine to travel to other dimensions..haha

  8. I hope the hubby gets better soon. Positive thoughts headed your way.

  9. I'm sorry to hear about your hubby. I'll send some good vibes your way...

    As far as the dimensions...It makes sense that your socks would be sent to an alternate one. I mean with all that spinning going on in those machines, somethings gotta happen. lol!

    1. They go in and they never come out. And no one knows why. I see a research grant in somebody's future.

  10. hope your hubby gets well soon.

    as for the dimensions... a recent numerical simulation via supercomputer of the beginning of our universe showed 9 spatial dimensions at the start, with only 3 of those dimensions expanding over time. Interesting review article here: http://www.physorg.com/news/2011-12-year-old-puzzle-superstring-theory-supercomputer.html

    1. Thanks Leon. The entire sum of my knowledge of string theory is in my post. I'll check out the link though.

  11. Where in the hell are my socks? Ahh the age old question! Many philosophers have pondered this age old question! My best quess is 42. I'm not sure but when in doubt of an answer I go for 42.

    (I posted a video today, just for you!)

    I hope your husband gets better soon!

    1. No it's not 42, it's 12. I know this because I learned it from a turtle who said he learned it from a rabbit, who learned it from the Pope. And in a game of turtle, rabbit, Pope, Pope always wins. (I'm sleep deprived).

  12. I collect my singled out socks. Got a nice big bag of them.

    Also, best wishes to the hubby. Hope he pulls through.

    Hope your husband is ok! <3

  14. Melanie, you got me with that one and I'm severely pissed off right now. Guido is definitely bagging and tagging you and I won't spare your identity when I induct you into the Troll of Fame. I see you've gotten some of my friends with this little ruse. You're head's going on a pike Melanie, it's going on a pike.

  15. Anne if you ever wanna send secret messages back and fouth, my email address I use to talk to other bloggers is justmadethisaddressup@yahoo.ca
    Its an old email account I made up months ago to quickly email someone on blogger something but the names become a bit of a burden cause every time I tell someone it they think I just made it up.

    1. Do we get to use secret decoder rings? Because that would be great. We could also take a wire and attach it to 2 tin cans and stretch them between here and Canada. We might even bag a moose for dinner! I'll send you and email before the weekend just to see if this address really exists.

  16. I hope your hubby gets better. Personally I like to think there are an infinite number of universes, and my socks must be in one of them. Along with my shirts.

    PS Love the Hitchhiker's reference.

  17. Waking up with my arse in another dimension really sucks.

    1. That's a good one Al. Don't touch my photo's again dammit!

  18. I like the idea of a wormhole which socks disappear into but the reality is that the odd sock works it's way between the washing machine inner and outer drum where it gets finely shredded and flushed down the drain. The solution is to only buy identical socks so you don't have to match them up. Alternatively, do as I do and wear odd socks to see who notices.

    1. John, your so logical, you would know this. My hubby and daughter wear mismatched socks all the time too. It doesn't bother me, but it bothers my mother-in-law. I encourage their behavior

  19. Socks always go to the 7th dimension whenever they have an argument with their other half (notice they never go in pairs?)

    1. My socks must fight like cats and dogs then, because they're always seperated.

  22. Sorry to here about hubby, hope he's well again soon. Me and Fran loved the cartoon, made us both laugh. Oh this fame of ours, we even get cartoons made about us!!! Are you going to post it to your blog?? I hope so!!

    1. Just read your reply on Fran's post! You won't get the post,its been deleted. I made the mistake of leaving the room with my computer logged on and my ginger friend decided to put an ode to Fran post on my blog....the git. It was duly deleted and that McDonalds he keeps going on about recently, wasn't bought by him, he's so tight he could come from the country above England!!!!!!

    2. I'll post it if you both want me to. I just want to make sure you and Angry know I didn't do it to get pageviews or comments, I did it because I like the two of you. Talk to Angry and tell him that I'll do whatever he wants me to do with it.I won't post it without Angry's approval too. You guys can copy it or print it out. It's yours to do anything you'd like with.

  23. I'm gonna tell him you said that Ray. He likes taking credit for that McDonalds and I'm gonna pretend I believe him for the rest of my life!

  24. I don't want to go to another dimension. Could you send me just to Norway?

  25. Never used a laundry mat, cant imagine what people do while they wait there for their clothes. I imagine that the socks just go on adventures and would return to you but you gave up waiting for them and went home.

  26. sorry to hear hubby is not doing so good...i dunno where the socks went or go but with as many as i have missing they have pretty big mass....really cool pics...

  27. You know I've never been to a laundromat we don't have those at all here.

    Sorry to hear about hubs, sending some positive energy to you and him, darling.

  28. As always enjoyed the post. Sry to here your man is doing well.

  29. I can never find matching pairs of my daughter's socks. I tell her most mornings she's going Punky Brewster style today. She has no idea what I'm talking about. Most of you probably won't either, lol.

  30. I'm convinced that all missing socks are stolen by the the Red Lectroids from Planet 10 in the 8th dimension and that some day the Banzai Institute will recover them. But then what will we do with all the extra socks?

    Hope that your husband has a speedy recovery.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Since you posted a serious comment, I feel I must post a serious comment as well. I hope hubby's health improves, and you know we're both here for you if you need anything. To vent or even just to say 'hello.'

  32. Sorry to hear about your husband.

  34. Sorry to hear about the hubby. Hope he gets well soon!

    You were there for me during my difficult time and I'm here for you in return. If there is anything I can do, whether it be being a puching bag or just someone to talk to you, I'm here for you!

  35. 11 dimensions and I bet all of them have laundromats.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Although your pics are great, I hadn't considered taking any of them from here. But I don't know, now all I seem to be doing is wondering what it would be like for my arse and head to be in separate dimensions..

    Although I wouldn't like for my head to be in a dimension full of socks..hm. :P

    Hope your hubby feels better soon!

  37. Hope your husband gets better. Socks always seem to be the first to disappear, it's probably Murphy's Law.

  38. Last time I went to a laundry mat I was almost mugged. I almost instantly bought a washer and dryer afterwards.
