The Story:

Everyone has had the experience of having a sock go mysteriously missing, apparently without a trace. You can open up the lint trap, search behind the washing machine, and turn it upside down, but there is nothing to be found. Is it just a case of a misplaced sock, or is there something stranger at play?

Some people have also reported unusual appearances of objects. An innocuous towel carefully folded on the stair. A USB stick with documents pertaining to a foreign company, arriving on the desk in the middle of the day. And of course, socks spontaneously reappearing at precise intervals, coming out of the wash as if they’d never left.

Are there people breaking into homes and inserting objects just to make life interesting? Are there 6th dimensional wormholes opening up in the spin cycle? Is our universe a simulation with glitches that only affect unattended items of clothing moving in a clockwise direction at greater than 20km/h? We ask these questions and more, in the next sock-disintegrating episode of … The Paradise Paradox!
