Laws of Physics 101…
If you happen to enjoy odd physical phenomena, you might want to head over to a Segway hangout and just watch what happens for the next few days.
It turns out, more than 20,000 of those things have been recalled because of a risk that they could unexpectedly apply reverse torque to the wheels. Anybody who’s ever seen a Daffy Duck cartoon knows what happens next.
Oh. If you actually OWN a Segway, take off your cool-looking helmet and call 800-750-6557 or check www.segway.com. to see if yours is potentially dangerous. This has been a public service announcement.
