I just fell off my Segway. Tears were streaming down my face as I hit the ground.

That's how hard I was laughing after reading your cute and woefully innacurate piece about Segways and one of it's fan clubs: Seg America. There were problems with their election process which is too detailed to explain here, so you took a cheap shot at Segway and it's "nerdy" rider as you were trying to write comedy. Did you do it all by yourself, Megan, or did someone help you with the big words?

Over 30,000 Segways are safely riding on sidewalks around the world, many of them saving car trips and gas.

Anyone writing a blog on Popsci.com should have more sense, or learn how to write comedy. Try to do one of these next time you do a piece here.

To those who haven't seen a Segway in real use as an alternative to a car / motorcycle / scooter / bike, please your comments are just crazy making! I live in downtown Austin, I love to walk, but I don't like to walk in 100 degree weather for 20+ minutes each direction. I own two bikes, I get sweaty on my bikes, I road race on them and treat them as an exhilarating form of exercise - but I have an office job and I like to dress up - bikes aren't a great substitute for just getting around. My motorcycle is fun, but I see it as a pain in the ass as I have to "gear up" for it and still have to deal with parking problems. I love my Segway, I can zip around town, stay connected to people on the streets, engage with other pedestrians, and turn a 1-2 hour walking trip into a 30 minute Segway trip - and no parking. You people love to mock the idea of Segways but have no comment about the vast majority of obese Americans who drive their SUV the 1/2 mile to the supermarket. Segway riders look "weird"? Are we still in middle school? I wonder if the first bike riders were mocked?! Of course they were, it's human nature (as you are unfortunately proving).

I love Segways and think that there are plenty of great uses for Segways. I really have do disagree on them being nerdy; I don't consider myself a nerd, but if having a segway makes me nerdy go ahead and label me.

Never frown, when you are sad, because you never know who is falling in love with your smile.
