the whole premise behind the invention of this machine is to make it easier for people to be hit by cars. I've never been on one and could not
attest to its difficulty to operate, however, the fact that there was a voluntary recall leads me to belive it, like so many other hyped products,
isn't all it's cracked up to be.
It seems from your comment that you began reading my thread with the mind set that you were ready to defend one measly little embarrasing moment by
our president like a propaghandist defending their case. I have no idea whether the battery was dead on the model Bush fell from or if he's just
that clumsy but either way, if thats the criteria to be an idiot, I guess I qualify because 2 years ago I pulled an end over while moutain biking. oh
and you might look at some sports bloopers too. Must be nice to have never ever stumbled or fallen off your bike or tripped on stairs (guilty of that
too). The thing that bothered me about this was its heralding to the top of the evidence pile that our president is ignorant when in all actuality, I
can't criticize because I've done far more clumsy acts that have had far more hurtful outcomes than this. Falling through an old rotten ladder,
flipping my chair in second grade. My personal fav was shutting the car door on my mother-in-law's finger. Gosh, for all you all that never
stumble, fall, or do anything stupid, us idiots are sure envious of you. ...if there are any of you.
Anyway, back to my main point. Got a Segway? You need to take her in for a recall notice. End of point and story.
