Handcuff Bike Lock

On the campus of the University of Maryland, some police officers ride bikes, complete with red and blue lights, a siren, locks made of handcuffs. My accomplice feared I risked arrest taking this shot: she fled the scene.

Too Hot!

I work in a very old historic building in Washington, DC. We have temperature control issues. To track discomfort, a board has been erected outside a conference room for employees to record raw data for subsequent analysis. Somebody clearly had had enough. The yellow Post-it note says, "TOO HOT!"

Steve + Ladder = Pain

I'm incredibly self-reliant. I never ask for physical help. This is a problem. This weekend, I attempted to operate a 32-foot aluminum extension ladder single-handedly. It almost left me single-thumbed. Ouch. I hate seeing my own blood. There was a lot of it. Send sympathy money via PayPal to . Thank you.
