who needs cars anyway when we have segways?

My former latest wish was to travel across America on one of these:

About Segway

It says it right there, "green transportation". I could travel across America and save the world at the same time. These two wheeled vehicles can reach up to the crazy super sonic speed  of 12.5 mph! They are the coolest things since PopTarts! I was thinking of being the first person to go and face the odds on a dangerous journey across the country on one of these things, only to find out that somebody already has. It took this dude approximately 100 days to do it, but he did. He had to quit his job to do it, but he pursued his dreams so I guess that's the important thing....yeah-no. He had a friend film his experience on the way, so there's a documentary about him called 10 mph, Boston to Seattle. Wow...thrilling, I'm which I mean, BORING! If I did it first it would have been exciting. Meh.
I'll have to figure out a new way to change the coarse of human history with a segway. Or maybe there are better things to do with my time. Speaking of better things to do, I should skip on off the computer and get ready to mow a lawn.

Adios my friends!

  1. I'll join you in part of your Segwaying. We could segway through Yellowstone. I wonder how those things do going up mountains? ;)

  2. I'm sure the segways could manage the mountains with a little assistance. We could backpack camp through the mountains with our segways and make this an extreme M&M vacation. It's Brilliant!
