Segway racing: Back in the 1950s, manly men proved their mettle during their teen years by engaging in dangerous drag races that frequently ended in horrific crashes – after all, nothing shows the ladies what a tough guy you are by having your face covered in third-degree burns!

The modern-day equivalent isn't quite so cool. In fact, it's about as lame as they come since there's really no way to look cool while speeding down a trail on a Segway. All the same, Segway races have become somewhat popular in Britain, no matter how silly they look. On the plus side: We aren't likely to hear many weepy rock ballads lamenting the pointless loss of young life due to deadly Segway crashes.
