if you start with 2 dirty socks, and there are 3 people contributing to the pile, how many days will it be before the laundry pile over takes its pre-agreed volume (ie the laundry basket)?
I have a suspicion that the answer to this question will over estimate the number of days, because in actual fact the laundry basket fills up MUCH QUICKER than should be possible based on the data.
Which leads to a biological question - are the dirty clothes self-replicating? Is the laundry basked a seething mass, a non-stop orgy, reproducing like bunnies, and will eventually take over the whole house?
Its the only explanation for the state of my laundry pile.
