Update: Okay. I am late to the game obviously. So says most of the people commenting on Chicagoist (which I didn’t read at first becuase I got it via RSS). So says Paul, who had it on Forever Geek in May. And it was on BoingBoing, which I never read because it sucks. And, apparently this tale of tshirt folding goes all the way back to Socrates. So I am lame. But I still stand by my, “Holy crap! That’s cool!” reaction.
I see the link and short blurb on Chicagoist. I think, “Tshirt folding. Meh.”
I load the site. I think, “Tshirt folding. Is it worth waiting for this mpeg to load? Meh.”
The movie starts to play. I think, “Wow, obviously I still need to study Japanese because I cannot understand a single word she says. Meh.”
Then she does it. I yell, “Holy crap! That’s cool!”
And that’s how we come to have a new category.
