Sunday Photo: Stretch Your Mind

By JccKeith - not my pic, found it hanging around online

This picture is in fact an extreme close up of spandex.  In light of this festive time of year when too many of us eat far too much - I thought a good old look at our stretchy friend would be nice. Hang around, hang loose and enjoy.

For anyone interested, spandex was invented in 1959 by a couple of chemists, C.L. Sandquist and his buddy  Joseph Shivers in a DuPont lab.  It is a synthetic, meaning not natural, fiber.  It is known for its lovely elasticity and has been making people look really good or really bad for over fifty years.
