Bike vs. Cow

Taxes done? Today's the deadline, kids.

If you do the bulk of your driving within 1-5 miles of your home, you may want to consider putting your return down on a Segway Personal Transporter. One site I read featured a man who got rid of one of their family cars in favor of one - and figures that alone will save him about $16,000 a year in payments, insurance, gas, and maintenance on the vehicle. The Segway costs about a third of that.

Or you could take a look at the next generation of the Segway - called the P.U.M.A. (Personal Urban Mobility and Accessibility) - which is, essentially, a Segway built for two.

But I doubt they'll write any songs about it.


A rural salesman was trying desperately to talk a local farmer into purchasing a fancy, expensive bicycle.

"Shucks," says the farmer, "if I'm going to spend that much, I'd rather get me a cow."

"Oh, but think about how funny you'd look riding into town on a cow!" exclaims the salesman.

"Humph!" replies the farmer. "Not near as silly as I'd look trying to milk a bicycle!"

WONDER for YOUR WEEK: Shouldn't a trailer be pulled by a preceder?
