periodic table

I'll take educational experience I didn't need today for a hundred, Alex.

A: An elementary but time-consuming bicycle emergency maintenance procedure.
Q: What is patching a flat tire?

Absolutely correct. Gah. That took the better part of an hour, and I was already running late. Although I don't have any email from my boss, so he may not even notice. Whee. Thankfully, I had all the tools I needed, and the flat was patchable (I wasn't carrying a spare. Bad Antimony.), and two bicyclists who passed me paused to ask if I needed help, although that wasn't until the point where I had determined that I was in fact able to patch the tire. The hardest part was getting the darn thing off the rim, which took 20 min.
