Dear Credit Card Company:
I make a reservation for plane to Toronto using your credit card.
I used your credit card to hold a hotel reservation in Toronto .
Why, once I am in Toronto, do you decline my card to pay for that same hotel for “suspicious activity”, making me call you (international long distance or hotel telephone rates) to get my card released. (A hotel, that by the way, checks photoID of customers).
Surely, with all the Big Data you have available to you, and the interest rates you charge to customers, you should be able to figure this out. I did all I could to telegraph to you about my travels but write you a letter.
Annoyed customer.

4 wheels bad, 1 wheel good (From the vehicles have too many wheels, Dpt.)

A picture of the Ryno is to the right. (I have yet to see one in the wild). It is self-balancing, and so the Segway of mobility scooters/motorcycles. As they say, don’t let the road get in the way of your life. It is limited to 12.5 mph, and so one may ask, how is this better than a bicycle? Well if you don’t want to pedal. … How is this better than Segway? Well if you don’t want to stand, and somehow it looks cooler.

A page devoted to vehicles with only one wheel is here: Motorwheels monowheels They are not all of the unicycle variety.
