Segway Company Owner Dies In Segway Accident
Jimi Heselden, owner of the company behind Segway died in an apparent freak accident where he drove his Segway off a cliff into a river. A story like that has linkbait all over it, and upon spreading the news myself my sister (and many other of you out there) pointed out the irony of the situation. My take? It’s as Ironic as rain on your wedding day.
Everybody do me a favor- understand what irony really is. Thanks.
