Stranger than fiction

27 Sep

I was out for a walk in NE Minneapolis with my wife a couple years back when we noticed a group of helmeted Segway drivers on a guided tour rolling by us across the street. One rogue tour participant drove his machine to our side of the street, cut in front of us and, then obviously losing control of the Segway, proceeded to plow full-speed into a waist-high flowerpot. It smashed into pieces and the driver toppled over the wreckage and did a Pee-Wee-esque somersault about ten feet in front of us. We laughed for about an hour. It was one of my favorite memories that summer.

This is a long way of saying that I am probably one of the few people who had no trouble believing that the owner of Segway recently drove one of them off a cliff to his death.
