The hopes and best wishes of Humankind?

Or that cylindrical object that spun off while the view of the rocket bell was partially blanked?

Perhaps it was misplaced ire that was intended for the President_45.

The Segway was supposed to revolutionize public transportation, too. Nobody cooler than Paul Blart rides them, though.

When the Boring Company stalls out in the face of community politics, I hope they bore a tunnel from the Pacific to Death Valley below sea level. It's about 200 miles.

The Segway is about as advanced and practical as an electric horse.
Or, probably more to the point, an electric horseless chariot.

It might have revolutionized public transport in the times of Ben Hur. But even then people would have complained that a horse can eat faster than a Segway can charge.

You can track where the roadster is (well, more or less ):
Where is Starman? Track Elon Musk's Tesla Roadster's Current Location.

Funny thing, they added fuel economy calculation to the statistics.
Its launch burned a lot of fuel, but it has done quite a lot of miles since so they count it in for over 185 mpg now, and rising quickly
