Things Lost

That awkward moment when the post you wrote and posted didn’t post. Not only did it not post, but it is lost. Lost in the internet tubes, to settle among all the things lost in the interwebs.  Well, awkward and embarssing, butnot much for it. While I go looking for my post at the internet lost and found, here are some pictures of other things lost.

These eight guys lost their jobs and their integrity after there were promised $100,000 for cooperating. They proceeded to lose the Series in eight games, pitching poorly, hitting poorly and making many errors. They were caught and the “Black Sox, were acquitted in a criminal conspiracy trial. However, baseball in the meantime had established the office of Commissioner in an effort to protect the game’s integrity, and the first commissioner, Kenesaw Mountain Landis, banned all of the players involved.

 

Lost His Head

The Headless Horseman begins in Sleepy Hollow, New York, during the American Revolutionary War. The Horseman was a Hessian artilleryman who was killed during the Battle of White Plains in 1776. He was decapitated by an American cannonball, and the shattered remains of his head were left on the battlefield while his comrades carried his body away. Eventually they buried him in the graveyard of the Old Dutch Church of Sleepy Hollow, from which each Halloween night he rises as a malevolent ghost, furiously seeking his lost head.

Lost Socks

Well, let’s say this hypothetical person will live to be 80 years old. 80 years is about 4174 weeks. Assuming this person does laundry every 2 weeks, (their mom did their laundry for them every 2 weeks until the age of 20) that equals to 2087 washed loads in their lifetime. Assuming again, that this person loses 1 sock in the wash, on average, every third time, that equals to about 695 socks lost. Now in addition to that, this person loses socks to regular wear and tear. Let’s say that they throw away an additional 5 pairs per year, because they have holes in them, or the elastic is stretched out. That would add up to 10 individual socks per year, so 800 in their lifetime. Add that to the socks lost forever to evil laundry leprechauns and you get the total of 1495. Of course each person is an individual and this number will vary greatly, but this is a pretty good estimation.
