  1. I saw Bob Saget tonight, he talked about Universal for a bit and asked the audience which ride was the best.

    I yelled out "THE MUMMY!"

    He looked at me and said "Mummy? I thought you said Mommy there for a second. I bet you like riding that, don't you?"

    Oh my god, I was the butt of a Bob Saget incest joke. I can die happy now c

  2. This new Onion article mentions Six Flags Great America




    Roller Coaster Designer’s Artistic Vision Sullied By Fantastic Four Tie-In


    GURNEE, IL—Insisting that every ounce of integrity had been removed from his creation, roller coaster designer Jonathan Leeman told reporters Friday that Six Flags Great America’s egregious incorporation of the Fantastic Four into his ride had completely sullied his artistic vision. “I didn’t spend a year crafting each corkscrew, hammerhead turn, and dive loop of this ride to have it tarnished with a blue-and-silver color scheme and cars painted to vaguely resemble Mister Fantastic and Doctor Doom,” said Leeman, shaking his head and remarking that, had he known it was going to have a 20-foot-tall number 4 mounted to the side of it, he never would have added a 17-story lift hill. “This ride was supposed to be purely about the thrills, the choreographed push and pull of G-forces, but look at it now: a garish mishmash of steel, comic book art, and speakers that endlessly blare The Thing’s awful roar. It’s a hideous perversion of what it once stood for.” At press time, Leeman was reportedly relieved to learn that his newest idea for an inverted coaster would, in contrast, be subtly complemented and enhanced by several tasteful likenesses of Yosemite Sam.

  3. I hate it when people claim to be "animal lovers" and are for "animal rights" when the only animals they care about are cute ones. Like, a lot of people don't care that the Bluefin Tuna is being overfished into extinction (its already endangered) due to the high demand for sushi. People don't care because "oh its just a fish, they don't matter" when they are a VERY important apex predator in the ocean and their extinction will cause substantial environmental damage.


    So please, don't call yourself an "animal lover" if you only like the cute ones. You have to care about ALL animals, even the ugly ones.

  4. Me and my friends were riding Manta at Sea World Orlando, and we were all telling jokes. I decided to tell a very vulgar and offensive one.


    After I told it, my friends looked at me harshly, because I completely forgot that a little girl asked to ride with us so she wouldn't have to wait in line, and she was on our car.


    I felt completely embarrassed and disgusted with myself

  5. I rode Maverick back in 2007 and even though it was a solid coaster, the restraints at the time were horrible. I bashed my head at least twice and that killed the experience (though I want to ride it again and have an updated opinion)


    Same thing with Skyrush. Great ride, but the restraints were just TERRIBLE and super uncomfortable. I know there is a special technique to sitting down when riding it to make it more comfortable, but in my opinion a ride shouldn't require a special technique to riding it for it to be enjoyable. You should just be able to sit down and ride as you would on any other coaster.

  6. When the "enthusiast" scene (not including people who just love rides and coasters) probably make up only a fraction of a percent of the total revenue that a park receives, I highly doubt there are many parks that really care about enthusiast's opinions.


    The only park I know of that actively listens and panders to enthusiasts is Knoebels, but even then their biggest market is the general public, so they're out to please the GP before the enthusiasts.

  7. The last movie I saw in the theater was Point Break on Christmas with my family. It was a fun popcorn flick that you turn your brain off for, but if you're looking for a thought-provoking thriller I suggest you look elsewhere.


    The one I saw in the theater before that was The Peanuts Movie. I'm a HUGE Peanuts fan, and I was very pleasantly surprised by it. Its modern and was adapted to reach today's younger audience, but at the same time they stayed faithful to the Peanuts series and didn't sell-out or make a crapload of pop-culture references like a lot of modern adaptations are. if Sparky (Charles Schulz) were alive today, I'll bet he'd be very proud of the finished product!


    I also saw Animal House on TV with my family on Christmas Eve. Its one of my parent's favorites, and I think its seriously one of the funniest movies of all time.

  8. My last concert was all the way back in February 2015 xD


    Less Than Jake and Reel Big Fish. RBF is one of my favorite bands so I naturally loved them, but I never listened to Less Than Jake before then but they killed it! I now have a bunch of their songs on my phone


    The next concert I plan to attend is Melt Banana, Napalm Death, and The Melvins when they come to The Orpheum in Tampa in April

  9. The first 3 are a 3-way tie. Also, I'm gonna try to list only one game per franchise


    1. Red Dead Redemption

    1. Roller Coaster Tycoon 2

    1. Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4

    4. Grand Theft Auto San Andreas

    5. Super Mario 64

    6. Midnight Club 3 Dub Edition

    7. Spyro 2 Ripto's Rage

    8. Bully Scholarship Edition

    9. Conker's Bad Fur Day

    10. Undertale

  10. Skyrush. Like many have said, the layout and forces are great, but the restraints kill the experience.


    At risk of being controversial, I'm gonna say most of the rides at the Walt Disney World parks. There isn't anything WRONG with the rides, I just prefer thrill rides and coasters, plus I'm not really impressed with theming, animatronics, or the "story" of the rides. Space Mountain and Tower of Terror are the only rides that I've ridden that I'd willingly wait in line for (still haven't had the chance to ride Rocken Rollercoaster)


    I think that we can all agree that Chance Toboggans are just absolutely hellish


    Also, go-carts. If I wanted to experience thrills and adrenaline while driving I'd just go on I-4

  11. A few weeks ago, I rode Intimidator 305, and my prescription sunglasses flew out of my pocket. Upset, I filled out a lost article form, naturally, but still doubted that I would ever see them again.


    Today I just got them back in the mail! And just in time, I was even planning on ordering new glasses! I LOVE YOU KINGS DOMINION
