  1. Just FYI- a season pass to Zoombezi Bay is good for waterpark and zoo admission during Zoombezi Bay's season, but does not include dry rides in Jungle Jack's Landing. Dry rides are pay per ride ($1 to $2 each) or $15 for an all day wristband.
  2. Mac OS. It's more easy to work with, and the pricing is a lot less confusing. To quote Steve Jobs, “Leopard is shipping in October. Basic version, $129. Premium version, $129. Business version, $129, Enterprise version $129. Ultimate version, $129. It’s all the same…”
  3. The last week of august should be fine, as most (if not all) ohio schools start during the week of the 20th.
  4. Wow, you got your facts right and everything! Too bad the MacPro is cheaper than the dell XPS when comparably equipped. houseofdell.is-there.net/mac-pro-cheaper-than-dell-pcs/ On a more related note, I too think the iPhone is far too expensive. They should leave out the e-mail, web browsing, etc. and knock the price down $150.
  5. I got a lot of nice things this year! A Nikon Coolpix L5 1 GB SD card An Epson photo printer A "Deal or No Deal" board game An Ohio State polo A Tie The first season of "The Office" on DVD A $40 Wal-Mart Gift Card A $50 Best Buy Gift Card
  6. I want to be a middle or high school history teacher.
  7. Congrats! Enjoy it now before your parents have you go everywhere to pick things up for them! By the way, I too cannot parallel park, we don't have to do that in Ohio. All I had to do was drive in a big circle in a neighborhood and then do maneuverability. My test took about 5 minutes (although to take the driving test you need 24 hours of drivers ed and 8 hours of in car driving lessons, as well as having to pass 2 written tests).
  8. 7:50 to 2:43!?! I go from 7:25 to 2:40, have no 10 minute break, and only have a 30 minute lunch. Stupid Ohio. (By the way, since I forgot before, Great TR!)
  9. Wow, your school is really open! My school is nothing like that at all, we're not even allowed to go outside (except the seniors during lunch). Just curious, how does your schedule work? I take it you don't have the same classes every day like I do. I wish my school make our schedule less confusing, people always freak out when I say that I have 12 periods.
  10. Rotolo's in Columbus is awesome, and Belleria in Youngstown is also very good. As for a nationwide pizza place, I like Donatos. (Pizza Hut=Yuck!)
  11. Wow a $20 fine? That's about as pointless at the $25 fine here in Ohio for not buckling up. I highly doubt anyone who can afford a cell phone is going to be effected by a $20 fine.
  12. That pic is most likely from 2000 when Six Flags added 4 new roller coasters to the park- Villain, Superman (Steel Venom), Batman (Dominator), and Road Runner (Beaver Land Mine Ride).
  13. Turn your La Ronde pass over and read the top section titled "where may my season pass be used?" If it lists Six Flags Theme Parks you can use it, if not, I'd bring it anyway because you might get a discount on tickets. Have Fun!
  14. You're right. My wife saw a report on ABC that said they're made to last four years! The Apple rep. was misquoted. She said iPods last FOR years not four (4) years. I've had my iPod since 2003 and it still works great! As for service, Apple gives 90 days for phone calls (iPods are limited to 1 call), and 1 year for hardware support, unless you buy AppleCare which extends both services to 3 years (2 years on iPods). Dell and HP also only have 1 year warranties on their PC's and you can buy a 2 or 3 year extension for about the same price as AppleCare is. Every time I have called for support or went into the store, everyone was very friendly. Just Remember, online support is still free. This link should solve your problem-> docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=61711.
  15. From The LA Times. Matt Ouimet will leave his position at the Disneyland Resort to run the hotel operations of Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide Inc. Ouimet, 47, will be replaced by Ed Grier, a 25-year Walt Disney Co. veteran who most recently headed Tokyo Disney Resort. Grier's portfolio will include Disneyland, California Adventure, Downtown Disney and the resort's three hotels. In a letter to the Disneyland staff, Ouimet wrote: "From my office window, I can clearly see the Matterhorn, Space Mountain and the Tower of Terror — and I am certain my new office will have a much less compelling view. In a three-minute walk I can enter Toontown and wander the park. Most of the time I'm just enjoying our guests and our cast ... and that is what I will miss most of all."
  16. Here's 3 diferent views of Columbus. (pics from this website) Nighttime Here you can see the Skyline and Nationwide Arena. Here you can see the skyline, river, and COSI! YAY COSI!
  17. Ohio weather is odd. In spring, fall and winter it can be in the mid to upper 60's one day and snowing the next. As for summer, it's usually in the 80's and 90's most days with a lot of pop up thunderstorms. As for today, it was a very hot 97 degrees.
  18. As much as I hate to say it, Geauga Lake is another credit stop. Steel Venom (If the holding brake is on), Dominator, and Big Dipper are the best rides in the park. If you haven't been on a flyer before you might also enjoy X-Flight as I did (people who have ridden B&M flyers tend to be more snobby about how the Vekoma ones ride). They do have an excellent waterpark across the lake and I do recommend spending some time there. On Raging Wolf Bobs you might enjoy your ride if they are running the black train, if it's the red/silver train you won't. On Villain be prepared for a spine adjustment- don't ride in the back. I'm not sure if you can ride Beaverland Mine Ride, I got that credit when I was 12. On Thunderhawk, I find the 3rd or 4th row to the back of the red train to be the "best" place to ride (Thunderhawk, IMO is not as bad as people always make SLC's to be, I have heard it's one of the "smoother" ones). Double Loop is actually an alright ride, I don't think it's too rough. As for the Boomerang... well, it's a boomerang.
  19. 1 Hour and 9 Minutes from Cleveland Hopkins to Cedar Point. 1 Hour and 45 Minutes from Cedar Point to Geauga Lake. Source: Google Maps (if you would like a map, type "CLE to 1 Cedar Point Rd, Sandusky, OH 44870" and "1 Cedar Point Rd, Sandusky, OH 44870 to 1060 N Aurora Rd, Aurora, OH 44202")
  20. At Cedar Point for the early entry to the park you are limited to riding select rides that will be posted inside your hotel. As for Geauga Lake, unless something special is going on, you should be finished with the credits rather quickly. However, I would recommend visiting Wild Water Kingdom for a while. It's actually a very nice waterpark. As for good rides at GL, I would say Big Dipper, Dominator, and Steel Venom are all worth re-rides (especially if the holding brake is on when you ride Steel Venom).
  21. $350 per person with a 4 guest minimum (Parties of 2-3 guests will be assessed a $50.00 fee per person. Sorry, no single-guest parties).
  22. That SFWoA cup reminded me of Wyandot Lake's souvenir cup ads which say "Six Flags Darien Lake". But, then again SFDL hasn't been closed for 3 years. Sorry to hear about the horrible employees, I guess parks are enforcing their rules for employees less and less.
  23. Having gone through CPR and AED classes, I can honestly say using an AED is not as problematic as it may seem. They walk you through what to do step by step and only allow a shock to be delivered if the person needs it. It's not like you just attach the electrodes and press the "shock" button (for an example of what an AED does, here's a website with a demo www.aedheart.com/xpad4.asp). Plus, in 2000 the "federal AED law" was passed to provide Good Samaritan immunity to all potential rescuers.
  24. ^ Yes, but that's not important in this discussion as Konfabulator (now Yahoo! Widgets) used to cost money and both these programs are bundled with an OS.
