I recommend getting a tire pump inflator, your not alway near a gas station pump, your lucky if it works anyway and they won't stay free forever, a good investment

Celerity measures the property of a vegetable that causes a woman's panties to fall down.

For example, celery has 100% celerity but radishes are only around 10%.

I keep a cheap manual bicycle pump in my trunk. It's not all that hard to inflate a tire by hand and it's faster than those really shiatty emergency tire air compressors.

The only reason I know what celerity actually means is that I knew a sailboat by that name in my youth and looked it up.

/It's a great name for a sailboat
