Dangerous Ingenuity

When I first heard about this story, I thought it was an early April Fool's Day joke.
Drunk Man Crashed Motorized Bar Stool

A man faces charges after police said he crashed a motorized bar stool while under the influence of alcohol....
...According to court records obtained by 10TV News, Kile Wygle admitted to drinking about 15 beers before hopping on the bar stool and driving down the street, 10TV's Andy Hirsch reported.

Wygle apparently told police that the bar stool could reach speeds of 38 mph, but he said the contraption was only traveling 20 mph at the time of the crash....

I think that the motorized bar stool man needs two things:
(1) counseling for his drinking problem,
(2) a job designing cars.
