That bike looks really unsafe for both its operator and others. Plus its such an obvious attempt to garner attention. Ban please.

Maybe a little bit like Elvis too? This one is also nice: Ice Drummer

The Eater ice cream list is lame. We could use a good guide in the E Vill alone. For example, I love Mikey's on A and hope Mikey's success continues. But honestly, the flavors don't deliver. Someone take this shizzle seriously and make a better ranking! Ice Cream Is Important. (not gelato etc.)
