I have heard that the average person walks about 5 miles per hour. The Segway cruises at about twice that rate. So, if the thought of crossing the United States on foot appeals to your inner sense of freedom, but you just don't have the time, why not try it on a Segway? Please, reread that last sentence sarcastically, 'cause that's how I meant it. But, seriously, this has already been done. As if the Segway needed another excuse to be remembered as pop culture, a documentary is now ready for purchase from their very own website: 10mph.com.

FYI - In case you were wondering, no, this is not one of our weekly "Friday Humor" posts. Check out their website, and all of your questions will be answered. Except the most obvious one: why? But, this is America, and the question of why is, as always, answered best this way: because I can. Any more questions?
