Doesn’t balancing on the Segway have something to do with the inner ear? Is this the incontrovertible evidence we need to prove that GW is not human, and is indeed a neo-con bot?

More photos of the fall and the two Bushes enjoying their Segways.

Judging by that four-paned image, it looks like he was trying to mount and ride it as if it were a unicycle. What a clown.

Removing the gyroscopes from President Bush’s Segway Human Transporter: Priceless

Give him a break. The computerized balancing system was only designed to be foolproof, not complete unrelenting idiot proof.

It looks like he’s trying to grab the reigns and mount a horse. With a tennis racket in the right hand to boot.

I feel it is our duty as responsible citizens to rank get as many people as possible to rank those pics a 5 on yahoo!. They really need to be on the highest rated pics page on yahoo!

(On preview it is already on the most actively rated pics page here.) Thank you so much to whomever posted that link!

Seems like a good analogy of his foreign policy. He must have over-aggressively leaned forward on that thing like there’s no tomorrow.

Comforting to know this man controls more firepower than anyone in the history of the world.

Bar’s looking a little “Grey Gardens” these days, eh? Scary.

At least he didn’t throw up at a state dinner with the Japanese or something like that.

I have a relative who works for Segway. He said Bush forgot to change the Segway to “Ride” mode from “Follow” Mode - which turns the gyroscope off and is for when you have to pull the Segway by its handlebars. Without the gyroscope, the Segway won’t move forward when you lean forward - it just flops over

102 uses for a segway.

Condemed are those who who knocked down the two buildings and killing 5000+ lives. Traitors and heroic are those who gang up with the people who wants to rule the world by knocking down many countries and killing uncountable lives.

GEORGE W. BUSH the hell with you and your party as well as those controlling you (mason / zionist). No justification has been made on the prove of weapon of mass destruction in Iraq despite your action pre-strike on Iraq was almost against against the whole world.

No explaination to the world as to what really happen to those people captured and detained by you.

Your visit to BALI - INDONESIA is NOT welcome.

You have achieved nothing but A REAL HATREATED TO MANY PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD.

We know these so called act of terrorists around the world (WTC , Bali , etc) are nothing but a real good conspiracies - well who could not have done it if one own the world media!!!!!

Peace

the people captured and detained by the military would gladly kill you and your family without explaination - the freedom of speech you have is not available in the contries that support terrorism - please move there!
