IU alumni Thomas Rank became the first person to marry a can of Mountain Dew on October 5. Rank also made history by becoming the first person to honeymoon at GameStop. 

Bloomington enacted a new curfew for e-scooter usage after two collision incidents. Finally, now drunk drivers can have a safe time getting home. 

Bloomington’s curfew on e-scooters means that no one will be allowed to ride a scooter at night, to protect your safety, and no one will be allowed to ride a scooter during the day, to protect your reputation.
