E-Scooter Trial: If Scooter Falls In A Lake, Does It Make Sound?

In a groundbreaking e-scooter trial in Bendigo, existential questions are swirling like leaves in the wind. The burning query on everyone’s minds: If a scooter falls into Lake Weeroona, does it make a sound? Philosophers and scientists are grappling with the profound implications of this scenario.

Local philosophers, armed with smartphones and a penchant for deep contemplation, are gathering at the lake’s edge to witness this profound mystery unfold. Some argue that the splash is merely a metaphor for the ephemeral nature of modern technology. Others suggest it’s a cry for help from the discarded scooters, yearning for a purpose beyond transporting hungover uni students.

“It’s a real head-scratcher,” says local philosopher and part-time dog walker Barry Ponderstein. “I mean, if a tree falls in the forest, we’re pretty sure it makes a sound. But an e-scooter in a lake? It’s like Schroedinger’s cat, but wetter.”
