are those small metal
scooters that, at least in California
, are taking over the streets. They are small, metal scooters, usually with brightly colored wheel
s that may flash. Fancy models may have brake
s, wheelie bar
s, and all kinds of other nonsense
. I find this fad completely baffling. From what i can tell, Razor Scooters
are for people who find skateboarding to be too intimidating, but bike
s to be too big, or too hard to use. Sometimes parents
buy their kids these evil little things, because they are supposedly safer than skateboards
. Kids enjoy doing variations on skateboarding tricks
such as the ollie
, although it seems much easier on the scooters.
There have been actual cases of big packs of skateboarders beating up herds of razor-scooter-kids - something i'd pay to see. Skateboards are much more useful in combat because they function as a lightweight bludgeoning weapon with hard metal 'trucks'. Its hard to hit someone with a razor scooter.
Unfortunately, the razor scooter trend has even spread to older people, I have seen people on the campus of UC Davis riding these things.
A razor scooter is the physical manifestation of the word Hella
