FROM THE DEPARTMENT OF THE CREDULOUS
“Untied shoelaces -- it's one of life's most annoying quirks. A team of mechanical engineers at the University of California Berkeley has had enough, so they investigated the reason why shoelaces keep on coming untied.
According to a report from Phys Org, the group found that the feet's combination of stomping on the ground and whipping around act as an "invisible hand," loosening and eventually untying the knot.”
YES, BUT, WHAT EXACTLY DOES THE “INVISIBLE HAND” DO TO UNDO THE SHOELACE?
HAVING MORE THAN ADEQUATELY EXPLAINED HOW THE LACES BECAME UNDONE, WHY ADD THE MUMBO JUMBO OF “AN INVISIBLE HAND” TO THE ANSWER?
