Tempting, but I’d like to have the option of buying muted solid colors (like blue, black, and grey) and not have to risk “neon lime” or “tangerine popsicle” when I choose “Solids” as my color. I guess I’m getting old. One pair in the color of my choice for $10 would be even more tempting. I agree with the previous post - 3 pairs of swim trunks is a lot if you don’t live right by the beach.
@tarpaper I’m a little rusty at this, but by my calculations, if there are six total styles in the group you select, and these are broken into four you like and two you don’t like, and then three of these (all different) are drawn at random from these six, your probability of getting 3 you like is 1/5 (20%), 2 you like and 1 you don’t is 3/5 (60%), and only 1 you like and 2 you don’t is also 1/5 (20%).
These numbers hold only if the pick of the trunks is truly made at random.
@Pufferfishy Florida, where it’s so humid that fungus grows on camera lenses. Where it’s so humid that if you open a bag of Fritos and pour them into a bowl, the first one is limp before the last one leaves the bag.
I escaped in 1981. I moved to Houston for its cool, dry climate - and I wasn’t kidding.
@Pufferfishy@werehatrack At least you’ll fit right in with the same levels of psychopatic state government, Senators, Representatives, and a general populus with a deep and demonstrated love of stupidity, racism, mysogeny, fascism, and gun violence, nearing Darwin-level abilities.
Over the last few years I have taken to buying swimsuits at the end of the season when they get clearanced at WalMart (usually less than $5, sometimes down to 1 or 2 bucks a pop). Since I have a pool I buy them in an assortment of sizes S to 3XL) so that I have some available if anybody visits (without bringing a suit) and wants to hit the hot tub in winter or pool in summer.
Once the elastic starts to give out on mine I use them as work shorts (assuming they have a string as well )so I can jump into the pool in the summer once I get hot working outside.
