TOOLBOX with XMART BIKE AND BACKWARD FORK

So I'm at the trail head today and some guy is "stretching" for his big ride...He yanks out a white styrofoam xmart helmet and jumps on his xmart bike....As he rides away, I realize the crown of his fork is facing inward, and his caliper/rotor is on the "wrong" side. The trail he was starting was not mickey mouse, and I didnt have time to catch him to warn him. I hope he didnt fall, actually thats a lie. I hope he did fall and break that xmart bike so he'll go to his LBS and buy a real one. BTW...as I was flipping through Maxim Magazine last night (Nikky Hilton on cover) I noticed a review of some bikes and one of them had the fork installed incorrectly.....who edits these things????
