A segway if anyone doesnt know looks like a wheeled type mode of transport that you stand up on and lean depending on which way you want to go.
Just read the inventor has died having been on one which went over the cliffs.

    It is the irony that makes it amusing, I suppose. Like Jim Fixx, jogger extraordinaire, who died from a heart attack whilst out jogging trying to prevent such an occasion. Ity is a wry smile, I suppose, not a laugh-out-loud burst of hilarity. Death isn't really that funny, apart from the Darwin ones. Now they are worth a grin! DD

    Hi Oneday

    That is so sad to hear. Poor man. His family must be very upset and shocked. Not heard about it on the news yet.

    hoisted by his own petard if you ask me, seriously though when I read this i thought it was a joke but it's true, what a strange world we live in, maybe now we might just see Lord Prescott choke to death on a pork pie after all!?.
    And maybe we will get an answer as to why his Lord Prsecots (god I hate calling him that) wife look like a blow up doll and he!, **** it I'm just going to call him Prsecot ok, right that got that sorted, looks like a cross between a Hipo and a Warthog?. :?
