    What would donkeys be like on the moon?
  • Birthday 08/18/1988
  1. here's the last of them (except for a few scaps here or there, not all of them bad, but none i have any great desire to post, either): here are a few more of those Manta night shots which didn't make the cut last time, but which are at least as good as those Shark Encounter shots! this was my one attempt at flash photography here! it looks kind of cool, too, but i think actually prefer the blurry non-flash photos. here are the infamous Shark Encounter photos! i've decided that they look kind of cool… these lamps are all over SeaWorld
  2. thanks y'all — your kind words are very much appreciated! i'm going to try and get the rest of the photos up some time today, although i'm still debating whether or not to put up the Shark Encounter photos (you can't really see anything, but i think they're sort of beautiful in an abstract way, and it still gives a good sense of the atmosphere of the place. hmm…) as for the debate… i've read the rules of this site, i think i understand them, and i honestly think i'm following them! i do use good grammar and spelling, i do proof read and spellcheck, i do try to make my posts easy
  3. i'm so jealous — it wasn't running at all when i went, and i spent the whole day hoping to see it run just once! great pictures, too…
  4. i just have to say it: this is probably my favorite topic of all time, on any forum! i love all of those great old wooden coasters (my coaster obsession actually began with them), and all of these incredible photos just bring tears to my eyes (yes, i'm one of those guys who takes coasters way too seriously!) thank you so much for sharing them!
  5. Look! I can now write like a second grader! I am sure my mother will be very proud of me, the women will all adore me, the mods will not banish me and we can all live happily ever after! Is it not amazing? I cannot go to sleep so I have decided to post more photographs of Manta:
  6. Seriously, using poor grammar to "express yourself" is simply one of the most foolish things I've ever heard of. Honestly, you don't realize how stupid that sounds? "Look at me, I write like a first grader" is probably not the best approach to being rebellious. But yeah, good luck with that. sheesh! i said it was a crappy trip-report, didn't i? what did you expect, e e cummings?
  7. look, i'm honestly sorry that you find my writing hard to read, but i just as honestly find your writing hard to read! and i promise i'm not saying that to pick a fight (i'm really not in the mood for a fight!) i also know all about “proper grammar”, namely: it doesn't actually exist! read two different style guides and each will tell you two different things, and read the same style guide from two different eras and each will tell you different things, and so on, and so on — capitalization as we know it today hasn't always been a part of the English language, and it likely won't be forev
  8. i'm not sure if i'll have a chance to post any more photos tonight, so, for those of you left who don't completely hate my guts (thank you!), here's a few more pictures (including some actual coaster photos!): and here's the show! Kraken through the roof! here's a close up of Kraken taken from my seat at the show! Kraken through the pirate ship! i don't know why, but i liked this shot, so it's here. this is what you see of Kraken as you enter the Sealion And Otter Stadium! i've never seen a line here before! can someone please explain this to me? the indoo
  9. well, let me put it this way: because i honestly care even less about what a couple of random people think! if more than a few select people have a problem with me and the way i write, or if TPR itself has a problem with me and the way i write (like if i'm threatened with a ban, or something!), then i'll happily just leave quietly, and move on to other sites — but, for now, i've gotten as many compliments as complaints for this TR, so i'll keep on posting when i can! but, technically, i'm still on my break, so not now! resizing and converting and posting all of these pictures is more work
  10. and, now that i've finished supper, i bring you part three! how many parts will there be? i don't have a clue — as many as i can get in before i run out of photos, or get banned for my improper capitalization! i love these guys! no, i've never tried their beer (or anyone elses!), but they've been a part of my life for so long, since i've lived so near Busch Gardens for my entire life! i think i'm living in a different zip code for the first time in my life right now, but i'm actually now on the same street (although, it's a big street!) i'll be miserable if these parks ever have to leave t
  11. uh, technically i've been around here for longer than you, and while that doesn't really mean much of anything other than that i've been here a long time (and i don't in any way mean to imply that it does!), in all my years of being here, and posting the way i post, i've never heard a single complaint about it from anyone until now! besides, i do capitalize, but only proper nouns and titles, since i think they're the only things worthy of capitalization, and that capitalizing other things just make it more confusing to read and write! but, if it's really going to be a problem then, honestly, i
  12. okay, more from the “photo trip-report” section of this trip-report: and here's the entrance i was too stupid to take a picture of before we went through! i've got to get out of here! actually, i just thought this was a cool photo… …and headless whales! OMG! …and barrels… …this room filled with ghosts… this spooky tunnel takes you down to… okay, i don't actually know if there was a walrus in that photograph, but this is what a photograph with a walrus actually looks like! and now you can see why i chose to use the one of them hiding… it's time to play Spot The W
  13. here are some more pictures (but think of these as part 1, or 2, or whatever, since i need to take a break!): Journey To Atlantis? i thought we were going to the kiddie coaster — whoops! i couldn't decide which photo i liked better, so you get both! …and through the sexy trees… …into the sexy pretzel loop… this is where i would have used that sexy lift hill photo, so just pretend it's here, and that this sexy first drop photo came after! oh, there she is! i'm just assuming Manta is a gal since i think she's pretty, and i'm not into pretty boys… wait — were did Manta
  14. i'm crap at this writing stuff (and not much better at pictures!), but here goes nothing: SeaWorld Orlando (March 22nd 2009) i went to SeaWorld Orlando yesterday with my mom (because i'm pathetic, i know!), rode a few rides (and finally got my Shamu Express credit!), saw a couple of shows and a few animal exhibits, and then decided to ride Kraken again… we'll get to that later! we arrived at around 11:30-ish, which was later than i hoped for, but we still got a pretty decent parking space (we didn't need the tram to get to the front gate, or anything!) i had wanted to get Shamu Ex
  15. well, i haven't been on too many coasters, so i guess this is more like “Top 10 Coasters In Central Florida”, or something, but here goes nothing… based on “best ride ever”: 01. Kumba 02. Gwazi: Lion 03. Gwazi: Tiger 04. Dueling Dragons: Ice 05. Dueling Dragons: Fire 06. Montu 07. The Revenge Of The Mummy 08. The Incredible Hulk 09. Big Thunder Mountain Railroad 10. Triple Hurricane based on all rides (averaged): 01. Dueling Dragons: Ice 02. Dueling Dragons: Fire 03. Kumba 04. Montu 05. The Revenge Of The Mummy 06. The Incredible Hulk 07. Gwazi: Tiger 08. Gwazi:
