But if you invented the Segway, you can own one.
I’ve been fascinated by the private island we dropped anchor near while on a friend’s boat last weekend. It turns out it’s called North Dumpling Island, just off Fishers Island, and it’s owned by Dean Kamen of Segway fame.
Kamen’s quite a character. He declared he was seceding from the union after he was denied permission to build a wind turbine. He not only eventually got it built, he lights the house and outbuildings with LEDs, and calls his island “LED Nation.”
Maybe next time he’ll have us in if we bring a good bottle of wine. Or maybe a nice casserole.
