Colorado is nothing if not efficient. After replacing its 420 mile marker on interstate 70 one too many times, the department of transportation came up with a more permanent fix: move the marker 50 feet and mark mile 419.99 instead. Knowing those legally pot-smoking mile-high men and women, they’ll just start smoking weed a few seconds earlier. Watch out, 419.99 sign. You’re probably next.

“What was restored was not just the bike, but also the faith in humanity. It made me realize that for every one bad guy out there to hurt you, there are 10 good people out there to help you. Once again, I am able to appreciate the beauty of the city, instead of watching out for the stolen bike.”
— Zilong Wang, a Chinese national who came to the United States for college. Upon graduation, he biked 3,400 miles across the country without locking his steed once, only to have it stolen the second he reached his destination, San Francisco.
Then it got Gene Wilder: someone actually returned his bike.
