I was searching for craigslist for a reasonably priced bike when I came across this:
I was undoubtedly enticed. However, my parental voices of reason convinced me that spending $150 on a unicycle that would probably result in the end of my life was impractical. So we piled up in the car, headed to Walmart and bought a boring, conventional bike. Of course, we forgot that the bike would take up so much room in the car, so my first chance to ride it was actually as I sat on it in the backseat/trunk for the entire bumpy ride home.
