Who Rides A Segway Near A Cliff?

You can’t make this shit up. Really.

(via @Kankaleen..how apropos)

Apparently the company’s owner, Jimi Heselden does, and unfortunately met his demise as he fell off a cliff while riding his very own Segway. Not to make light of someone dying but, who the fuck rides a Segway near a fucking cliff???  I can’t count how many times I’ve seen people fall off of these two wheeled gyroscope vehicles, and yes I laughed. The last time I saw someone fall off was during a walk around the Washington Mall and one of these fools zoomed passed my friend and I. We wondered why he was ahead of his pack of Segway tour, but we figured he was just trying to show off. A few seconds later, he hit a bump on the sidewalk and went flying. He laid there for a few seconds and then hopped back up. We laughed after we saw that he was ok.

Unfortunately for Jimi Heselden, you just can’t hop up once you’ve fallen off a cliff.

Let this be a lesson to all of those Segway drivers. Stay away from cliffs. Better yet, stay off of Segways, because you look pretty stupid anyways, lazy asses.

  5. Oh heck naw! This is one of the funniest pieces I have read in a while but you are speaking truth. When I first heard the story, I swear I thought the same thing. Why in blue blazes would you be riding this thing near a cliff? I know I am a bad person because I can’t help but laughing…truth is stranger than fiction.

    I thought he musta killed himself ?
    I just saw that story on MSN 2 minutes ago.

    I think this poor fool or genius…(if he was trying to go out in style he sure did that well) was a new owner of Segway 10 months ago. I think the creator from 1999 is still alive and spending his loot? Unless my A.D.H.D crippled me….again!

    That’s awful and way too ironic. One more reason to keep my big azz off one. I’ve always imagined sailing over the handle bars while one my shoes is flung in the other direction, the visual is painful enough….smh

    The jokes write themselves with this story.

    You know the worst part about this post. Is its TRUE!!!

    GOT DAYUUUM!!! The only reason I’m not laughing is because someone died (the creator of the segway no less). But in place of my laughing I will say. What asshole rides a S—–… never mind. Smh

    [walking away]

    WOW, i had no clue that was how he died……*please don’t snicker, please don’t chuckle, please don’t laugh* RIP mr. owner

  13. I hate Segways. They are worse than those shoes with the little wheels placed in the soles.

    • Heeleys!!

      My son had a pair of those! I hated them. I hated seeing parents just disregard signs in the grocery stories that said “no heeleys” allowed. thankfully it seems like that fad has died down in my area.
