Because everyone knew that wearing your thongs on your hands instead of your feet made you run faster. I'd try running with my shoes on my hands and found that I ran exactly the same speed as with them on my feet. Some sort of thong-specific aerodynamic property was lacking, probably.
    LOL...you know barefoot running is a thing now?

    I bet that makes @93JC sick to his stomach.

    As an aside, you know what's hilarious is that I pretty much NEVER get athlete's foot despite being so "disgusting" in my uncovered feet...probably because things like fungus like to grow inside of sweaty shoes and socks.

    Civilizations of people wore nothing but sandals for eons, bro.
    Civilizations of people poured their waste on to the streets to be washed away by rain water too. It doesn't mean it's a good idea.

    Note what I said about athlete's foot. I had no idea how people even got such things when I was growing up, the first time I got any kind of fungus was when I started running. My grandfather had some of the ugliest feet I'd ever seen (yellow toenails, got athlete's foot) and it's because he constantly insisted on wearing boots with socks in all types of weather, except for when he was home, in which he would go barefoot or in sandals.

    I've never seen any concrete proof that I'm carrying disease, germs or anything. In fact like I said, my feet are more aired out and therefore have a less intense smell, and I don't seem to pick up any kind of random disease of the foot.

    My entire point is that there's very little scientific basis for what you're saying. It seems like a personal preference you've exaggerated into some proof of your own superiority. I do wonder about people who hate on bare feet or flip flops that much, as I said.

    Hating on high heels I can understand, as they actually damage the foot after long-term wear and make women less likely to be able to run from a predator or attacker, et al.

    Whatever Marm.

    EDIT: Someone left me a rep calling me 'irrational'. Oh the irony.
