Although 8 out of 10 Americans live in cities, we still idealize a life in the country, and there are plenty of songs to prove it. And if you are considering a move to the boonies, there is actually free land available. The only catch is you’d have to live in Plainville, Kansas.
It's a bird, it's a plane, it's the new video version of Record Bin Roulette!

The Tour de France is the world’s epic bicycle race, a grueling 2,000 mile ride that takes 3 weeks. It’s arguably the most demanding athletic event, said the New York Times, comparing it to running a marathon several days a week for three weeks.
