Tuesday is for idiots.

Idiot 1 leaves a bike in the hallway, the hallway with the hardwood floors, the hallway with the hardwood floors with rubber tires on it. I told Idiot 1 to take his bike back outside. He said, "OK," but didn't move it. I took it outside. He asks, "That fast, huh?"

SPOILER: At the time of this post, three. Of course, if you were in space right now, you probably wouldn't need our Obligatory Cartographical Comparison Content where you can compare, statistically, how your fair country rates against others in a variety of categories or actually overlay disasters like the BP gulf oil spill on your hometown.
