sooooo snide indeed! I was trying to figure out how to phrase it as a set of instructions before realizing that anyone who doesn't read the fact itself as being some isn't SNIDE enough anyhow.

Love this task.
I found it difficult to think of a (public) place that has carpeting (or any other suitable structure). And if it has carpeting, one that is not cleaned twice a week using life threatening chemicals. And ideally one where I could pass and spill a bit of water now and then... (is it noticeable that I love this task?).
