Why do scientists, engineers, and other assorted nerds love checkered shirts so much? Does it remind them of graphing paper? I don't think I've ever seen a picture of NASA mission control from the 1950s-1980s without at least two people in short-sleeved white checkered shirts

They lack the firmness of will to wear a solid coloured shirt, so they default to the most inoffensive substitute.

Imagine not caring for your appearance so much for so much that not caring becomes an integral part of your life, a statement of performace and efficiency "oh, I'm so busy with tangetially important stuff for humanity, I cannot spend much time shopping" a symbol that says that you are part of a social group dedicated specifically to work and only work.

Not even lying, i really do have a light blue colored shirt with pencil thin checking on it and I like it because it reminds me of graph paper.

tho i do actually wear more solid-colored shirts than checkered

I like checkered shirts.

>> No.9688107

it's a bit more grown up/professional of a pattern than classic plaid, but still hides body issues a bit better than a plain solid shirt.
