Segway to Irony

According to the New York Times, Jimi Heselden, the owner of the company that owns the Segway, that magical transportation device that only douchebags ride just died when he fell off a cliff.

He was riding a Segway.  He was 62.

It goes without saying that you should probably divest yourself of any financial interest in the company that you may have acquired during the superhype leading to the unveiling of ‘IT’.  You may also want to avoid riding a gyroscopically guided personal movement device near 500 foot drops.

  1. Update: It turns out that not only was Heselden principal owner of the company that made the Segway that took him over that cliff, he’s also CEO of a company that makes protective barriers.
