"Harvard law student hopes to buy a Segway after his $1M ‘Survivor’ win."

ABA Journal covers John Cochran's win:
He told the Hollywood Reporter he would like to spend some of the prize money on a Segway, a new apartment, investments and "a lot of wireless gizmos and stuff."

On the finale, Cochran said he would like to become a writer rather than a lawyer. Asked about his paper about Survivor, Cochran told the Hollywood Reporter it was “basically Survivor for Dummies” and wasn’t that great....
“It wasn't showing any great insight into how to manage the Survivor jury,” Cochran said. “It gave maybe a brief overview of maybe what sort of strategies work and what don't, but it's not especially insightful. That's why I haven't released it. It's just gonna shatter everyone's illusions that I've written some sort of brilliant thing. It's not brilliant at all. It's embarrassing, so I'm gonna keep it a mystery."
Ha ha. Is the new book going to be insight into Survivor or insight into modesty? Or... may I recommend... a memoir of traveling around America on a Segway? If so, scoot through Madison, Wisconsin, because we love those things around here.

There's country song about that: Mama, Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Lawyers

Those lovable Harvardians, even when they're mediocre and admit it, we know they're brilliant.

Back-stabber much??

There's a Segway rental place on the boardwalk in San Diego. You can't look good riding one of those ugly machines. That's why Gob in Arrested Development is sometimes seen riding one. It's a sight gag w/ no words needed.

Kid shoots low, don't he?

God help you if you're riding a Segway at 10 mph and it hits a four inch high post sticking out of the ground.

The Segway will stop.

You will not.

Perfect if you're going for that ever popular mall cop look.

Hey, he's a Haavahd Law grad.

It's just about what he's qualified to do.

Madison's Segway Moron ought to go on Survivor. If we were lucky, he'd never come back. One of his fake medical conditions might kill him!

St. George, I ahve seen Segway riders flip and tip as you described.
