Here's why events should be shoes-optional

Rule E1B in the Event Rules Manual requires all team members to wear closed toed/heeled shoes. Here’s why this rule is an abject theft of our civil liberties and should not be tolerated by all sovereign citizens.

Shoes restrict blood flow
Shoes are not comfortable
Shoes are not natural
Some government officials don’t wear shoes, and so neither should you
Some establishments don’t require shoes
Shoes are not effective at preventing communicable diseases
Communicable diseases will continue to spread regardless of whether you wear shoes
There are no medical reasons for wearing shoes
Your personal choice allows you to decide whether to wear shoes

Remember that under the ADA and HIPAA, you are not required to disclose any medical conditions which prevent you from wearing shoes: the muzzle of the legs.

Stay free, patriots.

In protest of E1B I will be making shoes that cover only the toe and heel with a thin, permeable mesh and selling them on my etsy store for $73 each.

All true statements.

So are you suggesting that you make me not wear shoes, or can I wear shoes if I want to. I would like to wear shoes please. I won’t make fun of you if you don’t.

If you won’t wear shoes, I recommend wearing 2 pair of socks put on 30 days from each other

They may not be able to stop the spread of Covid, but they’re the best tool we have to protect our feet from LEGOS!

LEGOS are super bad, especially for old people. I got my parents to wear the socks and the shoes but they rarely wear the shoes correctly no matter how hard I try. At least they have the socks. Looks like they may need new socks in a few months.

What if it was up to the venue owner or managing organization?
They say shoes are optional. If you don’t like being around people without shoes you don’t have to go in.

Interestingly, The LEGO Group is a FIRST strategic partner! And they have recent dealings with a shoe company!

Looks like Big Shoe has been calling the shots at Big FRC lately…

I will fight to the death to preserve my right to bear feet. Sure people look at them kinda funny, really expecting to see human feet at the ends of my legs, but that’s just how I was born…

Now my grandkids, I have them trained well. As soon as we go to leave somewhere, BAM, shoes on. The problem is they won’t always leave them on. They’ll take them off, run around then put them back on, especially around LEGOs. They rarely lace them and they really need high tops because everyone knows, it’s the ankle that needs to be protected and nobody seems to be protecting their ankle yet everyone keeps yelling “You need to protect both the toes and the ankle”. They’re always dirty too, pretty gross.

Over the years turns out my grandkids don’t seem to mind stepping on LEGOs. Yeah, they cry a little then they go back to playing. I’m not that foolish, I have my 2 socks and my shoes if needed although I must admit, I remove my shoes from time to time because, hey you gonna wear them ALL the time which frankly, looks like that’s what most people do. At least I always have my 2 socks. Those socks are like a part of me, can’t be removed.

Maybe in the future there will be a LEGO that puts a hurt on them. You never know.
