    Well, IRL, I do have gray hair, a graying beard and I like to wear sandals, but I don't wear sandals with socks, and I couldn't stand that long hair or long beard--too heavy.

    You must be American. Only they think this is an important distinction to make.

    I do not follow fashion, myself, but I understand most people do one way or another. But this has nothing to do with it. Americans seem to believe they know all there is to know about someone by the most trivial observations, most of which are windows into their own general, national prejudices but mean nothing. They apparently believe that anyone wearing socks w/sandals is a brainless, worthless moron. A really bonker'd notion considering most of the people of the world wear them. Now if sandals and/or socks were invented in the U.S. they might be excused for trying to set a standard, but ....... they haven't got a clue, looking at the world but understanding nothing about it. :gallery:

    yep, that's true of many of the recent generations, they have had everything handed to em by the older generations so they've become self-centered & bewildered about life itself... most won't recognize the ineptness until they hit their forties... even then, many will continue life as zombied conformists...

    Yes, they continue 'after forty', for if they drop the basket (that they've been clutching so tightly as though it is a lifeline to what they regard as "knowledge") they'll end up with no eggs and no breakfast all through their retirement.

    I cleanse my socks in the washing machine and clean my feet in the shower. We do that here in Europe, you know. Socks, shirts, trousers, underwear, everything gets washed. Believe it or not, cleanliness was taught us by the Arabs .... long, long before the Americas were even "discovered". We Europeans made sure you had clean clothes and washed behind your ears before sending you across the Atlantic.

    Somebody who wears socks with sandals doesn't have much sense, IMHO. If it's cold enough to require socks, it's too cold to wear sandals. So, yes, somebody who wears socks with sandals is a brainless moron.

    Is that so?
    A very superficial understanding .........
    ..... with a ridiculous conclusion.
    "Superficial understanding" coupled with a "Ridiculous conclusion". The point is obvious.

    It's the logical conclusion. Not sure why you can't understand the basic point. If you need to wear socks, it's too cold for sandals. Sandals are worn to keep the feet cooler, during warm weather. It's just idiotic to wear sandals and socks, unless you are too poor for closed shoes and sandals, and it's rarely cold where you live. It's just basic logic.

    As long as we are talking socks and footwear.. another American peeve is black socks with tennis shoes.. esp, if wearing short(s) (pants). Reasoning is tennis are athletic wear and white socks are athletic wear. (don't rot feet as fast as dark socks)

    Cleanliness was taught to you by the Arabs? That explains a lot,.... most of the Arabs I was around in college stunk.

    It was during the Crusades when Europeans were filthy, unwashed mongrels. We have since taken cleanliness to new heights and surpassed the Arabs beyond their reach.

    We may have reached the level of the Japanese when it comes to cleanliness.

    But with the changing demographics in America...

    For some reason those 2 words look "dirty" when couple together almost like a porn term.
