Phone-throwin’ bloke Russell “Maximus Decimus Meridius, commander of the Armies of the North, General of the Felix Legions and loyal servant to the TRUE emperor, Marcus Aurelius. Father to a murdered son, husband to a murdered wife” Crowe took a stance yesterday against the BOGANS of Virgin Australia for confiscating his hoverboard.

Only he didn’t call them “hoverboards” because he’s not a chockers drongo garbo.

After Crowe sifted Roman farm dirt through his fingers and imagined a blissful, gauzy afterlife free from the shackles of duty and honor, he stared at the horizon and prepared this tweet:


True, Crowe sooked like a wee roo as he complained on Twitter about airline restrictions on hoverboards. Yet his secondary point was fair dinkum: “Segway board” is a far more logical term for the trendy two-wheel gadgets than “hoverboards.”


What we do in life echoes in eternity.
