    How will they stay in shape then? Make 'em ride bikes! (they cost a lot less too...)

    For $9K, they could get CARS.

    HA !! I just saw this. I think it's awesome. Soon everyone will have one. Everyone will crave one! Prices will come down. People will consume! Then once everone has one, they'll get their legs amputated and install a Segway scooter in place of their legs. [​IMG]

    FYI: the Segways the Atlanta police are using are on loan free of charge. The officers in charge of these used to ride horses, which are being retired from police use because of costs ($375K/year - one of many cost cutting measures after our last mayer left us 82 million in the hole)

    Without horses, how do they do crowd control? Horses can be quite menacing, but...a scooter? [​IMG]

    For crowd-control issues, I suggest the electrified razor-wire Scooter of Death! Of course, the rear-firing teargas dispenser for dealing with student radicals is a factory option...

    The girl's name is Missy Jenkins and she attended Heath High School, just up the road from me. She has regained partial use of her legs. Last year she, with the aid of a walker, strode across the platform to receive her diploma.

    *clik* Central, be advised we are in high-speed pursuit of suspect. Request backup. Lost sight of perps when they stole mopeds at Sycamore and Eastview. *clik*

    Why is it when I look at the above picture, I get the idea they should sound like the flying cars from the Jetsons[​IMG]
