Society for Victims of disappearance of socks and phone-chargers

A much needed support group
  (+5)

against]

Will teach tracking strategies so that they are constantly under surveillance and cannot disappear. The society will form search parties, and discussion groups that can assist with the psychological aspects of anger and blame when sock pairs are lost, or when the battery is low, and you cannot charge your phone, because you have the charger, but not the USB cable.

A section of the society will deal with conspiracy theories and attempt at proving or disproving them, and finding out who is actually behind the plot.

       No. Pens leave of their own accord.

       Re. the conspiracy theories, do you think one could set up a pantomime moment which would fit the line "They're behind it!*"?   

       *Oh, no they're not!
Oh, yes they are!
etc.

       Everyone who joins should be suspected of being behind it, simply because by joining they could throw the scent off of themselves.

       Yes, well, you would say that, wouldn't you ?

       If your pen has gone missing, I most likely have it. I am a pen thief extraordinaire, I conjure up means to steal peoples pens all night. I admit it. I'm guilty. So there. The other stuff I have no use for. IT'S ALL IN THE PENS.

       I thought we'd settled the science on this one... Aliens!   

       having declared that, one still may need a support group. I am all in +

       Loss of phone chargers can usually be put down to voltage fluctuations. If the mains voltage dips after your charger has fully charged the phone, the back- pressure can suck the entire charger right back into the wall and along the wires. Phones can sometimes go with them.   

       For similar reasons, if there's a power cut while you're playing loud music, the room immediately seems eerily quieter than it was before the music started. This is because the sound is being sucked back through the speaker cables.

       //the sound is being sucked back through the speaker cables// That's rubbish, and you know it. Actually the silence comes from the transformers in your local sub-station, the silence rushes down the wires and comes out of your speakers, hushing other ambient noises and making the room not just seem quieter, but actually quieter. If the sound levels go negative it can damage your hearing a little. So it's best to sing if you experience a power cut
