    Ooh! China Banks (the brick banked-sided pedestrian bridge with concrete benches) used to be a favorite spot. I’ve ridden them on skateboards and bikes. Way back in the 1900s. Carving over those...

    The sharpest? Probably the carving knife. Or my vegetable chopping knife. You can cut a tomato with it without even holding onto the tomato. It’s like a scalpel. It is the most excellent steel, but...
