To be honest, I have never taken the time to confirm the difference between an immelmann and a dive loop...I've taken my guess at which one is which, but I've never taken 5 seconds of google's time to confirm. I have also never taken the time to learn the terms for any of RMC'S crazy maneuvers. When I tell people the difference between an inverted roller coaster and a traditional roller coaster they give me a fake interested look when in reality they don't care.

I just hate stupid people...

We went to SFOT with some friends... One of our friends was DEAD SET on the "FACT" that Titan use to be called "Wild Thing." -- "Only it wasn't as tall, and you hung from the track." and said friend refused to ride it because "Omg. Last time I rode that my bar thing popped up, and I almost flew out and died. I was just barley able to hold myself in." :roll:

I just wanted to smack him. But I got tired of trying to explain to him that's not how this works... That's not how any of this works. So I just let him keep believing everything he thought was true. :roll:
Bigger is not always better.

I mean... they're essentially the same construction, it just depends which direction you travel through them.

Donkeys are my way of life!

My comfort collar on Tempesto came loose Sunday and I told my co-workers about it and they were all absolutely horrified. I explained to them that comfort collars actually weren't necessary and one of them said they'd never ride Tempesto because the restraint system was "malfunctioning" :roll:
