Bike Commute Diaries: Tumbling Tumbleweeds

    The reason tumbleweeds tumble is to spread their seeds around. They started out as an invasive species from Russia, maybe 150 years ago or something like that. The tumbling around in the winds has spread their seeds all over our world since then.

      I had no idea. Is the American West that much like Russia?

Fix The Toaster

Nearly 32,000 Americans die in car crashes annually. 80% of car crashes are PREVENTABLE. If the TOASTER was killing that many people we'd think it was ridiculous. We'd un-plug it and say, let's Fix The Toaster.
