Thanks for the great video. That explains a lot.

So I’m not loosing my mind? That’s a relief. Now I can justify that CCTV system I’ve been wanting to buy. I’m gonna catch em’ in the act.

But my own theory is that certain items can temporarily move into the 4th dimension.

Particularly things like socks in your drawer, or laundry in the airing cupboard, which – when men look – cannot be seen!

However, women can see them, and by touching them, bring them back from the otherworld.

This is why the pants/shorts that you can’t find are sitting on the top of the pile when your wife points them out!

Its also why I ask my wife to come into the workshop to find the pencil/screwdriver/spanner that I had a minute ago but now can’t find!

Very funny, Now I know what happens to all the stuff that disappears from the shop. I alwas thought that they got legs and went for a walk.

I knew my table saw had a bratty side—he’s been the instigator the whole time.

The hand tool guys will point out that the hand saws and planes were innocent bystanders, power tool guys will use this as justification to upgrade to better behaved tools and the poor pencil will never be seen again.

Thanks for the humor break.

@JayT The Ringleader is always the table saw. I had my suspicions the entire time and know I’ve caught him on film.
