    Whoever invented the pocket on blue jeans for guitar picks is/was a genius.

    Levi Strauss?
    Definitely! I almost always find a pick in the dryer or washing machine. I always remember to grab atleast one pick, but forget that little pocket quite often when washing dirty laundry.

    For a loooooong time, I always thought it was for coins, but found out it was for a pocket watch!
    In the early days of motorcycles, there was no standardization as far as what controls were supposed to be where. That's how you got hand shifters, foot clutches, foot shifters on the right, and brakes and throttle on the left. So when on the tollway you are able to keep your left on the throttle and get change out for the toll booth.

    I've never once used that pocket for anything, but I'm sure as hell going to try using it for a pick now. I'm guessing the experiment won't last more than a day or two, but now I'm curious. Thanks for the tip.

    Reminds me of back when I was in high school and in English class we had to write an essay about something lost and something found. I wrote about losing guitar picks and finding them in the dryer lol.

    Yup always kept picks in that pocket. Mainly us it for Nitro pills now. Pick with my fingers.

    You can pick your friends. You can pick your nose. But you can't pick your friend's nose.

    Bluejeans with the oil & gasoline yes, but how about the inside pocket on slacks?! Prior to playing guitar, I recall in my younger days that I had a single pair of slacks that had an inside pocket. I think that I might have used it to put the house's front door key in? Because I kept change in front pocket.
