Retractable Tie II

 
(0)
  [vote for,
against]

The bottom flap retracts up into the knot, as do the arms of the loop (which connect to each other at the back of the neck, like some hideously complicated bra-catch).

Fully retracted, the now-pudgy trapezoid can be tossed into the sock drawer, without worry of creasing.

       You permit your valet to throw your ties in the sock drawer ? For shame, [FT], for shame ...

       Well, the point is that you can, not that you should.

       Ah, the old " Capability does not imply intent" defence ... Kim Ping -Pong loves people like you, "Look, I just want a few nukes to impress the neighbours, of course I'm not actually going to use them ..."

       It should work like some blinds where you pull down and release, then to raise you pull down a bit further and release.

       So, a powerful metal spring, probably with sharp edges, under tension, and attached to your throat, right next to your airway and all those major blood vessels ? Sure, after all, what could possibly go wrong ...?

       The springs only exert a pound or two of force. Of course they're off-the-shelf components, so theoretically somebody could substitute a heavier set : see the "warranty disclaimers" section in the manual.

       That implies that it rolls up the tie rather than accordion- folding it. But doesn't *that* imply that the tie will end up curly like Dilbert's?

       Rolls the other way so, if you're actually in shape, you need a tie pin or it bows out.
