Beat me to the punch on two counts!
I figured somebody would have made the tied variables joke a while ago, but I thought I'd sneak in on the Tye joke.
Secondly, I lament that men do not wear ties as much anymore. Maybe it is because my job is tie-optional (I'll wear a tie if somebody outside the company is meeting with me that day, or if I'm interviewing somebody), but I think it is pretty fun to dress up.
As to ties being worthless, functionality wise, a lot of things we do and wear are. The male trunk, however, is fairly flat and boring, and the friendly necktie is a handy way of breaking up that featureless area.
