    I can't watch the video... I hate you computer! Hahaha! I've wanted to try this way of folding a shirt for the longest time. Seems so much faster.

    i saw this before in a video online... some japanese martha stewurt lady does this in under 10 seconds.... i forgot the website though!

    Jeezow! I have to fold about a hundred t-shirts a week for the family laundry. (stay at home and work at home Dad) I am going to practice this. Those few seconds add up and I will be able to impress all the neighborhood moms with my slight-of-hand shirt folding magic. Thanks.

    OMG, that's just too easy! Now I can save some hangers. :p

    contrary to some haters out there, i think this is an awesome thing you just taught me! and it's actually useful!

    Heh. I tried this for a while, but end up just throwing them in my drawer. a bit too lazy.....<a rel="nofollow" href="http://threadlesscoupons.blogspot.com">free coupons for threadless.com!</a><br/>

    I was going to make this post...It's supposed to be fast, but they don't take into account the time it takes to lay it out flat on a flat surface, while in contrast, the shirt is held in my hands the entire time for the method I find most efficient, but not quite as aesthetically appealing as the folds in clothing shops. Then again, I worked at one, so I can do both pretty quickly. My method involves folding the shirt in half down the line of symmetry, folding the sleeves over, then folding the shirt in half again, from the bottom up.

    Hey guys (or gals), I think i saw something about long-sleeved shirts? Just sorta pull the sleeves into themselves before you fold the whole shirt. No problems!

    My life is complete and I can now die knowing I have the meaning of life.*

    Thank You Zujus !!
