Sock Block

200 Socks In A Cube
  (+14)(+14)

I'm tired of socks being sold just two at a time. The Sock Block is 200 identical men's socks pressed into a 24-by-24 inch cube. Since socks are pliant and retain their shape when pressed, the block will stay cubic after it is unwrapped.

Tired of wearing holey socks every morning? Throw them all out now, and buy a Sock Block today.

The Sock Block is both decorative and functional. Leave it on top of your dresser, or on your bedroom floor, and every morning, simply peel two socks off the cube.

Since all the socks are identical, no sorting is necessary.

       There's another idea before for something similar. If i remember correctly. But I've always like the notion of disposable clothes anyway. [+]

       [+] You just cant find bulk socks in stores.

       I can't think of anything to add, it is clearly brilliant!

       what dent said... I just hope you don't have to match a colour to each side of the bl**dy cube.

       It's bad enough wearing identical socks every day, but identical socks on your left and right feet?? Please, provide a block in which all 200 socks are guaranteed to be different.

       Nice. Why make them identical? A mixture of say, 3 colours should be manageable. Red, white and blue could be ok.

       Uhh...There's a pretty big difference between *Buying socks in bulk* and *Buying socks in bulk, compressed into a cube from which you peel them when needed*.   

       I like this idea, +.

       [21 Quest], who doesn't wear identical socks on their left and right feet?

       200 is a lot of socks. Surely this thing will cost a fortune.

       //who doesn't wear identical socks on their left and right feet?// Maxwell Buchanan never, ever wears identical socks. I can't fathom why anyone would, to be honest. Madness.

       Does it have to be a cube? Could it be a bust?

       200 buns wrapped neatly in the shape of a croissant. +

       I think 200 is more socks (of the same size) than anyone would require in a lifetime. I guess the partially-expended cube could be handed down through the generations, but the concept flies in the face of JIT principles.
Texticle, Oct 17 2007
  

       Trust me [texticle], it isn't. Well, leastways, quality of the socks is a key factor.
phundug, Oct 17 2007
  

       hmm... why not make them out of rubbers and makem multipurpose ;) block of cock socks!
