Get Inspired, Quit That Cubicle Job, Then Ride Across Country on a Segway

Imagine David Lynch's The Straight Story, except instead of one man riding a lawnmower across two states, he's on one of those ridiculous Segways and going across country. The award-winning documentary 10 MPH is now available for free on YouTube. “This is 6,000 times harder than what Lance Armstrong had to do in France,” says producer J. Fred. “This is the toughest athletic event ever.” Follow their slow-ass journey on this fancy scooter, where one full day's distance is equal to what a car can drive in an hour. The characters they meet and the footage they get of America's landscape makes you want to quit your own day job and go explore. — James Y Lee
