Scare Yourself Silly in Three Easy Steps

1. Inflate flat bicycle tire to recommended pressure before noticing tire was not 100% in place on rim.

2. Frantically try to deflate the tire and watch with growing horror while the inner tube forces its way out the gap between tire and rim, pushing more and more of the tire aside.

3. Fall over backwards on to garage floor when BANG!! the inner tube pops.


My ears hurt for half an hour after that.
