It pays to fight the entropy back!

A study that shows a lot of interesting things.

E.g., a hole in a fence where there were signs stating, essentially, "Don't go through this hole" and "Don't attach bikes to the fence." Where there were bikes attached to the fence, ~80% of pedestrians would cut through the hole. When the bikes were unlocked, something like 25% cut through.

Is there disorder of some sort near a problem area in your life/home/work? Fix it and the problem may diminish.

Hmmm... I'm thinking I need to spend some time fighting back the entropy in my garage.

Man, it works. Just watch your kids and how they treat messy and clean areas.
