Both, with effects that cancel each other out.

All of the coolness points you get for having a Segway, are erased by the Vespa style.

If you're going to ride a "cute scooter" it's got to be a Yamaha Vino, not a wannabe like a Vespa.

imho coolness of segway is gone for 10 years.

they found their niches, but mostly for carying overwheight tourists through cities (yak)

and... to me the vino always looked like a cheap knockoff an old vespa.

Actually I think it was the metric system that killed those people.

You can turn on caption, and translate the captions to English. This will not help but you can do this.

I am the proud owner of a brand new oil pan for my car. While I was in New Jersey the old one got rusty enough to develop a pinhole leak.

One of my cow-orkers said "You usually don't see oil pans rust, because they're always, y'know, filled with oil."

I blame New Jersey, of course.

During my trip, I went into a K-Mart to buy some extra oil to keep it topped off until I got home. While there I discovered something that most people probably know, but I didn't because I'm a dork: there is such a thing as aftermarket universal replacement hubcaps. Silly me thought that I would have to go directly to Mitsubishi to replace the hubcaps that were stolen when I was in Waterbury (which is in Connecticut, but I blame New Jersey for that too).

So now I have four new hubcaps with cute red trim to match my red car.

I'm sure Mitsubishi would be disappointed to know yet another potential customer learned about after market parts.
the oil pan probably rusted from the bottom of it being exposed to things like salt, all winter.

The gasoline pipe on my care was rusting once. I only noticed after a few days. When you drive to another town and get out of the car and notice that gasoline smell you already noticed when you got to your car in the other town, there has to be a correlation. Looking under the car, there was a surprisingly large amount leaking. I tried to avoid the guys throwing burning cigarettes out of their cars while driving to the garage.

Nope, actually we are, er, I mean she is into My Little Pony. Somehow I doubt I would survive pulling up into the parking lot at work in a car whose wheels are adorned with Twilight Sparkle, Rainbow Dash, Pinkie Pie, and Apple Jack (with Fluttershy on the spare, of course).

Also, K-Mart didn't have them.

Well, after 23 years of safe driving, I got my first speeding ticket yesterday.

And it's a doozy. 61 in what I thought was a 55, but was actually a 30.
Who the hell puts a 30 MPH limit on a six lane divided highway anyway?

The officer was really angry too. I wasted 20 seconds of his life looking for a safe place to pull off the road instead of stopping in the middle of traffic like he apparently wanted me to. Since he obviously doesn't care about safety, I hope he wrecks his patrol car very soon. And since he doesn't care about basic human decency, I hope his wife beats the crap out of him on a daily basis and that his kids hate his guts. Really, there's no excuse for yelling at an otherwise safe driver who simply made a mistake.

Everyone may now commence with your best "how to deal with a speeding ticket" strategies. I'm willing to spend any amount of money to keep the black marks on my license and insurance minimized.

Route 100 (Central Avenue) in Yonkers. A six lane divided highway, speed limit 30 MPH, go figure. Yonkers is a cesspool anyway, they really ought to move Micro Center to a real town.

I really do hope the officer died in a car fire (for real) on the way home that evening.

If he did then you can't be convicted....
