    Yup like 10 yrs ago :rolleyes: j/k

    I've never actually tried it, but that shirts looks really, heavy and silky. I don't think an all cotton shirt would work.

    Seen it. Done it. Got the T-shirt. Not as easy as it looks. At least not the first and only time I tried it.

    OK so I was bored and watched the video again and tried it again... and success! Not quite as neat as on the video though. (I didn't quite get the bit where she flips it over, the first time around)

    I think I'll stick with the Demi-Goddess rather than Domestic Goddess name though.

    Don't bother. Men just can't do it properly. We're not programmed that way. :eek:

    Oh no. I dont get on with hangers. Hangers and flip flops piss me off big time. :p

    I have this crazy ass wardrobe that if you put stuff on a shelf, like tshirts, underwear etc. When you try and take one thing out, the frickin contents of the shelf comes with it. If i use hangers, when i try and take something out about 3 items of clothing come out with it and it takes about half an hour to unattach the hangers from each other. While the clothes fall on the floor. I must have a new species of underpants gnomes in my wardrobe.

    Damn flip flops too! Most annoying sound in the world.

    What you gotta do, you see, is put a hand each side of the item you want to remove. Then push to the left and right away from said item. That creates enough space for you to remove said item unmolested. ;) :cool: What doesn't kill you only makes you stronger. :cool: :D

    PS you've got a bad link there, I think.

    Well you'd think that wouldn't you? Not in my wardrobe though. I tell you there must be a new breed of underpants gnomes. Instead of nicking your underpants they mess with your hangers and throw clothes at you when trying to take anything out.

    I know :rolleyes:

    Kind of cool to watch, but it requires something flat to fold on...in my dorm room it's all about folding standing up. :D

    The MacRumors thread about the Japanese video was from 2004. I've folded T-shirts the way that video shows ever since then.

    Thanks for making me feel bad :)

    I can't do it as neatly as they did in the video...but who cares how neat your drawer is other than the military??

    Ever since I've seen the video, I've been folding shirts like that. It's pretty much awesome :)

    Ditto! Although my clothes don't usually get folded, they just hang there on the radiator until I put them on!!

    Unless the girlfriend nags... for the nteenth time...
