The Left-Knee Mystery
Every one of my pairs of jeans has a worn spot on the left knee. I've been puzzled by this for a while. I don't notice myself kneeling down on that knee. I can't think of any activity that causes rubbing against that one spot.
Since I started flying, the toes of my shoes are getting worn, but that is easily explained by the use of rudder pedals. I do kneel on my left knee when doing a preflight on the plane, but I wouldn't expect so much wear on my pants from just doing that.
Another possibility: something under your desk at work.
I have a new pair of pants, so I'll be monitoring the wear pattern closely. (It's too bad I have nothing more interesting to do with my time.)
2005-09-01 12:52: Came back from lunch, Blue Jeans (ID # KQX249) show minimal wear at target point.
2005-09-01 17:44: Monitored wear while in the Men's Room. KQX249 shows minimal wear at target point.
2005-09-01 23:13: Monitored wear while working at the iMac at home. KQX249 shows minimal wear at target point.
Hmm, a log like this would benefit from regular expression analysis...
