1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Please post pictures with you on it if you do. You'll get bonus points if you're holding a croquet mallet while riding it.

    You'll look like one of those weird men that can't give up their childhood. We all've seen them, the ones scooting around the park in their helmets, elbow pads, knee pads, and a big goofy smile.

    If they're smiling and happy and having fun, what's wrong with that? [​IMG]

    lol...from what gathered, Kent is supposedly a very well dressed man, I just can't invision a grown man in a suit riding a scooter..on purpose.

    I've seen a guy around here doing it. He seems to go from the Metro station to work (and I assume Metro to home). He looks like an idiot, imo.

    I say leave the scooters to the kids.

    I just watched some program in which some renowned NYC professor/lecturer navigates the halls of academia on a razor scooter---------not good. Not good. A woman in my company at the time (to whom I am married) was disgusted. Unless you have ambitions that include celibacy, steer clear. At least the Segway suggests you have ample disposable income...

    Chick in bar to Kent: "So, why don't we go back to your place so we can have more privacy"
    Kent: "Sounds great but I can only fit one on my kick scooter so I'll scoot on up the hill and you can walk up and we'll meet at my place, OK?"

    +1000.

    Plus, what are you going to do if a bunch of five year olds want to race you? And their scooters are more tricked?


    Depends on how many -- IIRC, Kent can take out up to twenty-something of them.

    I think it was lost in The Great Fire of 2006....but my advice on this is to be forever grateful that that thread predates you.

    It would be best if everyone stops encouraging this moment of embarrassment.

    We all know this won't end pretty....

    Man we used to have so much fun on my cousin's Go-Ped. Until we decided to see who could ride it down the street longer with their eyes closed.

    My team likes to use these at away regattas because they fit on planes and save our legs for racing, but seriously, we look retarded. It's fun, but you look like an idiot. However, we seem to get away with it since we travel in packs.

    To say the least.

    If you still must, make sure it's not a Razor. You'll look like one of those weird men that can't give up their childhood. We all've seen them, the ones scooting around the park in their helmets, elbow pads, knee pads, and a big goofy smile.


    Could it be that some of these big goofy smiles are the results of consumption of illegal substances?
