I'm not sure how I feel about super-rich celebrities stunt-riding public transportation, even if it might be a more efficient and quick way to get across big cities. It seems like such an ostentatious and slumming toe-dip into the reality of everyone else's life. If they at least did it without their PR machine being Read more

Great idea. I go into NYC a lot from Connecticut and will be doing this to my trip bag when my glow in the dark Zendure arrives in the mail.
