Old news article here: http://www.gather.com/viewArticle.jsp?articleId=281474976740399 saying 10% of English wear underwear at least three days. Can I say gross, there is only 2 sides you can wear so two days MAX! LOL

sure, two days CONSECUTIVELY... i subscribe, however, to the Dave Barry method of laundry. you make a big pile. all the dirty stuff goes on top. the intense heat and pressure near the botton squeezes out all the dirt out.

so, all you really have to do is pull your "clean" clothes out from the bottom of the pile!!!

Well there are 2 clean ways to wear the same underwear.
1. The right way.
2. Inside out.

It says a lot for the mentality of the Scots that despite living in the coldest and wettest part of the country, they reject trousers in favour of skirts and no underwear.

Forget all that Mel Gibson nonsense, they didn't need to paint themselves blue
