Spandex

spandex

I’ve had a bizarre fascination with spandex since I was a pre-teen. The only root cause I can think of is there was a time in my memory when there was “no spandex”. For some twisted reason, it bugged me when I read comic books and knew there was no way these heroes could show off their rippling herodom because all the clothing material I knew hung on you like a sack.

Yes, you are reading that right. The lack of a spandex-like material made Superman less believable.

In unrelated news: I’m going to track how Google ranks Rands in Repose relative to the word spandex over time. As of 10am PST, 3/29/03, this article has not been noticed by Google.

[5/1/03 Update]: Doesn’t look like Google has crawled the site… yet.

[5/9/03 Update]: Still no significant change in the Google Spandex query. Great article about the dense and incestuous linking that occurs within weblogs that defies Google’s ranking mechanism.
