So, as you may know from reading this stupid little blog (Hi Grandma! Hey Paulie, you dink.), I often determine that things I find on the interwebs are Weirdohead not because of the product itself, but simply because of the name. Last night’s insomniac excursion yielded another of these finds.
A company by the name of Troy Technologies (who are not based in Troy, Michigan, luckily for them) sells what they call “travel wheelchairs.” Which is all well and good, they seem like pretty dang nice wheelchairs, really. But my quibble (or maybe “my question” is more accurate) is this: aren’t all wheelchairs travel wheelchairs, technically? I mean, if you didn’t want to travel in one, wouldn’t you just get a regular chair?
Upon closer inspection, it appears as though these travel wheelchairs are specifically designed for long-distance travel, and are made to fold up for easy storage on airplanes and such. So I guess it makes more sense when you put it that way. But still, it seems a lot like saying a car is a “travel car”–of course it travels, that’s the point!
Ah, the stupid things you think of when you’ve been awake for almost three days straight…
