If you’re stuck in a sinking car, or outside your car and desperately need to get inside, you have plenty of ways to break that window, but one of the best might be right there in your car anyway — a simple sparkplug will do the trick with ease.

During Lifehacker’s recent Extreme Commuting experiment, I was utterly fascinated by what we might call femto-stations — stations so small you can only access them from a single train door.

Thankfully, there are still plenty of over-sized tourist attractions to gawp at should the mood strike you.
