What’s Up With Scooters?

Topless Old Man Bwog

In this rapidly changing world, we sometimes feels a little behind the times. Old Man Bwog aims to address the eternal gripe: “What’s up With That?”

Dear Parents of the Scooting Youth,

How would you feel if I walked into your backyards, set up three foot-tall hurdles all over the place, and watched your frustrated efforts to avoid my traps? How about if I put wheels on those hurdles and built them out of the flesh of toddlers? Well that’s what I feel like every time I narrowly avoid one of your children hurtling across campus on some newfangled scooter. As the collective elderly consciousness of Columbia students, I walk across campus constantly, quickly, and without any peripheral vision. For all you math-types, let me put it this way: Your little bundle of joy + my trajectory = big mess. Kids don’t have any respect these days, and if you want to teach your kids any rules, you better start by teaching them to respect the laws of physics. That means no cheating friction!

Yours Grumbly,

      @Anonymous Not if you can’t even see their faces! Also why can’t you like your own comments?!

      @Anonymous Yeah. This isn’t true at all. Especially if the kids are out on the street. You can be excused for thinking this, though. It’s exactly the type of BS that gets passed around.
