Micro fiber isn't just non-hipster

Mudwall, misguided in his choice of wearing cotton dungarees while fishing as he might be, may have a better reason to avoid synthetic clothes.

My signature blue fleece commonly seen in my TRs is 20.years old.  I expect to be wearing it another 20.

Dang it, I just bought 4 pairs of synthetic boxer briefs to help prevent chaffing while hiking and fishing.

Is that too much information?

 Damn, just made me think twice about this glass of tap water in my hand.
The next logical question would be does the process of making beer remove these plastics from the water being used? Being an alcoholic might not be so bad after all. 0:0

Misguided my ass!  It is called visionary efficiency.  With incredulity a person is forced to learn.  After that fiery spark from the pipe burned that first dime-sized hole in the Simms fleece, I was a plastic skeptic.  It ain’t rocket science.  We’re screwing Mother Nature and not even giving her time to douche between fornications.
