Dead Car Battery? Get A Rope!

So this is why my mom always told me to keep a rope in the car. I always thought it was for those rare occasions when I turned into an old-timey villain and needed to hogtie people and place them on train tracks. Do kids today even know what the villain is all about? Snidely Whiplash and all of that stuff? There seem to be just a lot fewer damsels in distress nowadays, and so the level of old-timey villains stroking their evil looking mustaches aren’t around anymore. They just turned into hipsters.
