I've got an idea, and I don't care if someone rips it off and this actually happens, because I'd laugh my ass off. Let's go one step further than sitting on a lawnmower. Imagine someone invented a lawnmower that moves like a segway. It would be more effective on smaller lawns, but only snobby people with big lawns could afford one.
\\Cough\\


GODDAMN!!! I was NOT expecting that so soon. ;)

Edit: Is it just me or does that look photoshopped?

I don't often say this, but that thing is shopped. I can tell by the pixels.

Does such a thing really exist? I wouldn't be surprised :P

Quote from: Chesterton
For, in order that men should resist injustice, something more is necessary than that they should think injustice unpleasant. They must think injustice absurd; above all, they must think it startling. They must retain the violence of a virgin astonishment. When the pessimist looks at any infamy, it is to him, after all, only a repetition of the infamy of existence. But the optimist sees injustice as something discordant and unexpected, and it stings him into action.

I thought the wheels looked disproportionately clear, the grass didn't look disturbed enough, and the mower looked "closer" than it appears to be, if that makes sense.

Manual lawnmowers have a huge advantage in non-horizontal gardens.
Round here they use a remote-control lawnmower. It's the coolest thing ever!

Manual lawnmowers also have a huge disadvantage in the "My god, it's full of rust!" department.

Because metal rusts slower if it happens to be part of a motorized lawnmower?

I'd say so; the design is less exposed (especially at the joints and bearings) and if a motorized lawnmower does get stiff and rusty it won't affect you nearly as much.

Duuuuude. That makes me think of a GTA 2 mission... Except you weren't mowing a lawn.
