    Think mondobongo might be right. I regularly have to get Mrs Hugo15 to find my cycling socks in the airing cupboard. A couple of minutes of me looking = no socks. A fewer seconds of Mrs Hugo15 looking = socks. I think it might be becasue she hides them ;).

    Since splitting with my wife - I don't have any odd socks anymore. Not one. :sad:

    (there's probably other benefits too - just not sure about them at the mo)

    Oh yes - I've now got a hosepipe to clean the bikes with.;)

    It's all down to evolution. Men hunted, women gathered.

    Man: See mammoth, chase mammoth, drive mammoth over cliff, job done
    Woman: seek berries and tubers. Berries and tubers smaller than mammoth and hide under leaves and bushes and in ground. Mammoth cannot hide under leaves and bushes. So women become more observant at spotting subtle changes in colour. Hence, they can find argyle socks with quick glance in sock drawer and can also remember that they put them in which drawer, because they had to remember where they found berries yesterday or even same time last year.

    Men don't need to remember where, or look for subtle colour changes because mammoth is bloody great thing which sticks out and is easy to rmember.

    Same with spotting bargains in supermarket and turning over umpteen items in hope of finding lowpriced item Also why they have greater concentration span and why men get bored in supermarket or shoe shop.

    Have no evolutionary explanation for Amy Whinehouse tho'.
