I’m sure you’ve heard the phrase, “you can’t make this stuff up.” The truth of the matter is, yes, the following story sounds very much like something I’d make up simply for comedic and ironic effect. But, truly, the following is the honest truth…
Jimi Heselden, the man who bought the insanely successful personal transport company named Segway Inc., died in 2010. Having plummeted down an 80 foot cliff…on a Segway Scooter.

If only one day we would all awake to such news headlines as “Internet Pop Up Ad Creator Succumbs to Seizures From Pop Up Ads,” or “Inventor of the Term Political Correctness Ostracized for Insensitive Remarks.”
Now then the world would be a better place.
