Wow, what a waste of bytes to store & transmit that article. And in "Scientific" American, no less.

Friday night after work is the best night to do laundry. The laundromat is usually empty. Also, she didn't even mention it's one of the best places to meet girls. And don't forget to clean out the lint trap before dropping in a bunch of quarters. Oh yeah, and make sure you fill the washer up with water some before throwing your clothes in as some morons use too much bleach and you don't want to ruin your shirts... Wait a minute, I could write this article way better.

This seems a bit overdramatic to me. Until I bought my house in May, I had the same every-other-Saturday morning routine: Load clothes in car, drive to laundromat, put clothes in washer and start, go to bakery down the street for breakfast, come back and put clothes in dryer, hang out and read/surf internet on iphone/angry birds until dryer done, fold clothes and go home.

I'd maybe see 10 people the entire time.

I agree.  That was a non-article.  I guess she forgot a deadline and had to find something to fill 3,000 words.


Thats what happens when you get a degree in anthro. Your career is filling 3000 words at a time.

AverageAmericanGuy: I haven't been to a laundromat since we moved out of the lower-middle class back when I was a kid. I'm taken aback that people still use them. They are terrible money-sinks.


Being poor is expensive.
