1) What are your favorite types of socks?

You might think that all socks are the same, but there's a whole lot more to them than meets the eye! These seven facts about socks will not only make you laugh, but they'll also teach you something about this everyday staple. The first fascinating fact is that there is a sock philosopher who has devoted his life to studying the art of socks. His name is Philosockphy and he even has a Facebook page for his sock philosophy research!

2) Are you more of a tube sock person or an ankle sock person?

Personally, I'm more of a tube sock person. I like the way they look with sandals or sneakers. They're also good for wearing with boots, if you want to keep your legs warm and covered up. But for some people, ankle socks are the better choice. Ankle socks are shorter than tube socks, so they might be easier to put on or take off when you're wearing shoes with a higher heel or no heel at all. And not everyone wants their socks to show when they wear shorts or skirts! So it's up to you: what type of sock do you prefer?

Red socks with blue jeans? Forget about it.

It's called Philosockphy and most people do it without even knowing they're doing it!
