#1 Marketing through Exaggeration: Do you remember back in 2001 when we were told that, “IT was coming!” No one knew what “IT” was, ohhh the suspense! And Steve Jobs even claimed that it was going to be as big as the PC. Remember Waterworld? I t wasn’t really any worse than most Hollywood blockbusters. What made Waterworld especially despised was hundreds of millions of dollars of production and marketing costs that delivered a mediocre product
#2 The Segway is fattening America: Is it really a problem that people have to get out of their cars and walk sometimes? If you are too lazy to walk from the tilt-a-whirl to the funnel cake stand, but the theme park forbids cars, then this is the invention for you.
#3 The Segway Made People not Respect Police: Police should only use these 4 modes of transportation: Cars, Motorcycles, Horses or walking. Granted there are a few officers out there who can pull off mountain bike riding and still look respectable, but this CANNOT be done on a Segway. Criminals may be slowed by laughter and thinking of sarcastic remarks, but otherwise this is not an effective crime fighting tool.
You want more reasons to hate the Segway? Here you go:
#4 Without the Segway, the movie Mall cop couldn’t have been made.
Segways make bad mothers even worse. I jumped to conclusions on this one. To see a full explanation of this picture, go here. Sorry, sorry, sorry!
#7 Segways are a preferred mode of travel for famous Italian designer Roberto Cavalli. And yes, he is also wearing a denim shirt with jeans while smoking on a Segway. Props to the good folks at Denim Therapy for catching this shot.
