  1. If there is no freestyle battle rap show then this will be the crappiest freestyle music park ever. Therefore, I shall hold my judgement of this park till I see the show list.
  2. I got that exact message twice. I then downloaded it on my older computer that has XP and not vista and it worked perfectly. Verdict: Vista screws stuff up.
  3. Someone set up us the bomb. Sorry, couldn't resist. I'm sure he'll have it fixed in a few. Still got almost half a day left to download it.
  4. I kept getting that corrupted error message to on my Vista computer. When I switched to my XP computer I used the same link provided in the e-mail sent to my Vista computer and it worked fine. Give that a shot. I just tried it again over here to see if it still works and it does.
  5. OK, I just downloaded it for the third time only this time I didn't do it on my brand new Vista infected computer. I used my Windows XP barely functional HP laptop manfactured before the Internet existed and the video works PERFECTLY. Screw you, Vista. Thanks again for doing this, Robb.
  6. I downloaded it again and got the same error trying to open it. I'm still getting the "This compressed(zipped) folder is invalid or corrupted." I'll try downloading it on my non-vista computer and see if that works. When all else fails, I blame Vista.
  7. Yeah, I'm experiancing the same exact thing and can't watch it either. Hope I did everything right. EDIT: just saw Robb's post. Re-downloading.
  8. Yay! My favorite coaster that I've never rode got some front page publicity. How could it not though? That is one sexy coaster. I bet the hits to the site tripled once that link was put on the home page.
  9. It was a blanket statement. I'm not being sensitive. Milwaukee's Best is a Miller beer. You're out of luck again. No... you were being sensitive and saying something that I didn't. Time to go local. Schlitz it is.
  10. Just because you drink beer doesn't make you an alcoholic. Um isn't Coors part of Miller? If I recall, they're owned by a South African company. Umm... at point was I infering that ALL people who drink beer are alcoholics? Don't be so sensitive. And yeah, I'm switching to Milwaukee's Best now that this Coors news has been discovered. They gotta be owned by Americans. Right?
  11. I'm willing to bet your right. Budweiser is a big piece of Americana and seen as the man's man beer. Especially in the geographic region you mentioned. On a similar note; the region I am from, the North East, highly values PMW above all else in life. If someone came in and said something lame like "family" or "education" is going to replace P, M or W well... then I will move to an area where my values are accepted. This logic can be applied to the InBev buyout of Budweiser as many steadfast American alcoholics will be forced to now drink Coors as Coors is the closest thing to the popularity of product that is Budweiser. Some Americans now have no choice but to drink Coors or else they will burst into flames much like the Tony Stewart fan would if he were to walk into Lowes as you had mentioned. I'm buying stock in Coors.
  12. I just saw THIS ARTICLE and then saw that SIX FLAGS STOCK dropped drastically once this news hit an hour ago. excerpt: Edit: Why would Six Flags stock lose almost half its value on this news? Granted it wasn't worth much to begin with but still, how does the Busch Parks potentially getting sold HURT them?
  13. Ah... that's right. The underpants knomes are going to show me no mercy for getting their master plan wrong. Good catch To one up you, I do believe they were "Phases" not "Steps". But I got that wrong too
  14. That's kind of like the underpants knome theory: Step 1. Steal underpants Step 2. Profit
  15. I'm confused... Why would the "M" in step five be neccessary if they had already cashed the check in step four?
  16. Seriously. The news better not cover anymore about this unless it has to do with some fine PMW.
  17. Does anyone know if there was a big pile of PMW under the ride when this happened?
  18. Man, if this comes down to a point of there were not enough or not any signs to deter this and the courts rule that as negligent than I am just going to vomit. What would be next? Fences, tunnels and flashing warning signs every 5 feet around every single road in the country?
  19. Well, then you could then make the argument that McDonalds had a protective barrier in place (the cup) much like how Six Flags had a protective barrier in place (the fence). And both knew that if that protective barrier was breeched that it could cause serious harm. Because a speeding roller coaster or scorching hot liquid is dangerous without its protective barrier. Members of the jury I ask you to think about these facts as you make your judgement of this case. Don't let the prosecutions talk of this PMW sway your decision. That's just jibber jabber. ...Sorry, daydreaming. Man, I should be a lawyer.
  20. Geez, settle down. The point was that lame lawsuits exist that the media feeds to the mass public. Much like how this would be a lame lawsuit to find the park in any way negligent for this teens death would be a big media story. That point is made more than clear by citing the McDonalds lawsuit. So... no. I won't cite something else. Thanks.
  21. You'd think that. Then again, this is the legal system that can give one millions in the form of damages for spilling McDolalds coffee on your lap.
  22. I hope the parents don't sue either but lawyers have their magic way of getting in someones ear and convincing a person that it is someone elses fault. Especially when a big coorporation is at hand. But so far these parents sound pretty straight up and understand that the park was not negligent in this incident. I'm just hoping that governing safety boards within a state like Georgia and elsewhere don't decide that perimeter security must be WAY MORE strict just because of one idiot. safety boards could say that standards regarding; physical structures, CCTV monitoring, and personnel all have to change. They could all of a sudden mandate change like that and tell Six Flags, tough toogies, pick up the tab and get it done. That is not exactly a minor expenditure for the park to incur at this point. I hope it doesn't come to that because so far the perimeter system in place has been working pretty good aside from this one tragic incident.
  23. You know, I wonder how many people saw these kids doing this and feel like crap for not yelling at them for being buffoons or make any attempt to try and stop them. I mean, I'm sure allot of people saw them hopping the fences as a park like that is hella packed on any Saturday in the summer. Or maybe not depending where they hopped over. I know if I saw some teens doing this I would have atleast said something to the effect of; "Hey, (insert random expletives) get the (more expletives) back over to this side of the fence and stop acting like you own the place you little (...expletives)!" Of course, hind sight is always 20/20. Hopefully the news will reveal that someone atleast saw them and yelled at them and not that there were hundreds of eyewitnesses that just "lol'd" watching some teens hop fences.
  24. Wouldn't that only bring more bad media? BREAKING NEWS! A man was killed at Six Flags earlier today when he tried to cross the alligator filled mote around the park, while trying to gain free entrance. And if the fences are higher, someone will probably break their leg trying to climb them, possibly resulting in more lawsuits. Seriously, this society is so strung up on not admitting they were wrong, there is pretty much NO way to create a fail safe security system. Someone WILL find a way to f#ck themselves up with whatever they are given...Pardon my language. I know... my point was that no matter what the park did to prevent this it wouldn't be enough to stop bad press. This act was stupidity personified. Acts like this are something that a million different precautions couldn't stop.
