Photo: Skylines and Segways

The Chicago skyline is an inspiring sight when the sun sinks low to the ground, and the local tourist companies are more than aware of that fact. Therefore, when I had the chance to take in the view from the grounds of the Adler Planetarium, I was hardly the only person doing so--a whole gaggle of tourists taking a Segway tour had come by for it.

Personally, you'd have to pay *me* to get on one of these things. I mean, when you're riding around on a gyroscopically-stabilized two-wheeled conveyance while wearing a bright yellow helmet, you might as well be wearing a giant neon sign that flashes "TOURIST" over and over.
