Default Pub Hopping

Now I'm a responsible adult; always vote even on off years, occasionally stand for jury duty, pay my taxes without playing the attorney assisted loop-hole game, and try to obey our traffic laws. After all I've served in the military, am trained as an Engineer, and spent years planning for worst case outcomes at work.

Even so must say there are few things more fun then Segway Gliding Drunk!

No way would I drive an auto or operate a power saw, but gosh gliding is so . . . so magically!

One with the machine. Thought equals action; Quick turns, quick stops, and large pavement bumps effortless!

Like I said, I'm a responsible adult . . . . and there are few things like gliding drunk!

I can see the socializing experience getting better after a few drinks. Especially if the person is shy. But it seems odd that controlling a vehicle/device would be "few things more fun."

Glad you had fun.

Watch out in areas with a shortage of government funds. I could easily see government types pushing a DWI at a Segway operator (motor vehicle), just to score the hefty fine and a president setting case. They once charged a drunk on a horse.

In California, a person on a Segway is classified as a pedestrian, not a vehicle. So, if in-excess, I'm guessing any legal charges would be akin to "drunk in public"....
Be very careful about this. Intoxication creates less inhibition AND less focus on surroundings. Bad combination on a Segway.

Mutton chops, your judgement is in serious question. Care to have the address of the nearest AA meeting?

No Thanks. Not like my body or wallet can afford frequent Pub outings, but . . .

" One with the machine. Thought equals action; Quick turns, quick stops, and large pavement bumps effortless! "

. . . is worth it once in awhile.

Haha, true about "worth it". However, I bet a Segway battery that your apparent grace on the machine was all in your fuzzy mind

Sober onlookers running in terror
