The $250 price tag for the Justice League Ultimate Batmobile however, does make it a RC car fit for Bruce Wayne.
It is tough for seasoned chefs to keep up with Gordon Ramsay in a kitchen, let alone the regular dude who rates himself at 2/10 on the cooking skills scale. Quite an interesting video – and well tried, amateur cook.
