Boing Boing: Why shoelaces become untied
I have been dealing with this shit forever, but it’s been especially bad since I got this new pair of shoes (um, ten months ago). I tried reading all of the advice the internet has to offer — a lot of stuff about “unbalanced granny knots” and such — but nothing worked. Until finally, I went out and bought the shortest pair of shoelaces I could find. That did the trick. I didn’t need no scientific paper neither… but I’m glad it exists anyway.
