A Segway is coming to my neighborhood!

I can't wait to seel my mailman cruising down the road on one. I just talked to my mailman (we are pretty good friends) and he is going to have one, and said he will let me check it out once he get's it.

I know they look kinda lame, but they have two wheels don't they?

WOW, What a funny coincidence!! Just today we were B.S.ing with our mailman about those things. We could'nt think of the name of them though..
We were razing him about how his route is gonna triple and he's still gonna gain 20 pounds

anyway, thats cool Robert, see if you can get a test ride for us

Thumbs down I'm not gettin' it?

I think the gal? from Saturday Night Live said it best:
"The Segway Scooter is going to revolutionize the way people get their asses run over by cars!"

Nah. I hear it's gyroscopically stabilized, got more electronics than an ICBM-no doubt it's probably got ABS/linked brakes, VTEC, yadda yadda yadda.

I'm thinking HONDA!
