RE: [xml-dev] Memorable quotes from Balisage 2013

18. Research has shown that you will concentrate better if you remove your socks and shoes. The explanation for this is that shoes and socks keep the feet warm, thus blood flows into the feet. By removing socks and shoes, more blood flows to the brain.


Was this from Liam, or Elliot?


It also makes no sense.  If you have both insulation and constriction on your feet that keeps them warm precisely by NOT needing or allowing more blood.

So by removing socks and shoes you would get more blood to the feet.   (To warm them, and by lack of constriction).

If the theory is that blood flow causes concentration then this proves the source of concentration is in the feet.
