    You can get the Segway class for free by showing up at a local user’s group. I see them all the time, they have a monthly event where they hang out in front of the Apple Store and give lessons.

    Yes, you can stop snickering now.

    I assume that the soreness from the Segway was from standing without moving — that goes away quickly. When I work retail, the first week is always hell, but afterwards I don’t notice being on my feet N hours a day.

    Maybe you’re right, but remember, even standing behind a counter all day, you’re still moving your legs quite a bit. On the Segway, you’re literally standing still on a small platform for long periods of time. Not a lot of room to stretch your legs, even if you wanted to.

    Granted, if I actually owned one of these things, I could GET OFF OF IT once in a while, as opposed to the lesson, where you stay on for as long as they’ll let you…
