Good. Those things are death traps on city streets. They have no place in traffic.

Default Well, its about damn time...

I'm sorry about the "responsible" people who ride these things - the fact is that they are capable of being used on the street and are, yet they are no where near the standard of being roadworthy - and as such, cannot be considered street legal by the DOT.



Use them on private property, or run the risk of it being impounded!



Next should be those damn stand-up, weedeater-powered scooters...

Default How do you expect Darwinism to work...

... if you keep outlawing stuff that will get idiots killed!



If we saved every lemming that wanted to go over the cliff and every salmon that insisted on swimming upstream, we'd be up to our chins in lemmings and salmons! Hmm, add a bottle of Jagermeister to that equation and you might have yourself one helluva party. OK, never mind.

So where's the complete story of Dirty's bachelor party.



I'm sure you were the designated driver and no women of questionable character were harassed during this outing.

Hear hear! With the great nanny state stepping in to protect these would be candidates for the Darwin award, the mean IQ of our population will soon be equal to that of an MTV summer dance party. I say that concerned citizens everywhere should take up a collection to make sure that anyone wanting to ride one of these toys on the street is able to fulfill their fantasy, and their god given right to be stupid.

Default Mmmm, pretty standard issue stuff actually

A spin at the go kart track, some carousing at a "gentleman's club", some MOronic logistical problems thrown in for good measure (cause we're MO, and ya gotta). We didn't even get thrown out of anyplace, unless you count last call.



Come to think of it, we probably should have ordered up some lemmings, salmon, Jagermeister and a few pocketbikes. Now THEN we would have had a night to remember!
