  2. Kuwait Entertainment City is being demolished and their B&M Inverted coaster (Batman: The Ride clone) is listed for sale. What park would you like to see buy this coaster? https://www.interlink-lg.com/used-rides/inverted-coaster/ https://www.interlink-lg.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/12/INTK-66000-Used-RC93-specs.pdf https://rcdb.com/2872.htm

  3. It's the same with any other preventative measure. You don't ignore all the other measures; instead, they all work together to keep you safe. In a car equipped with automatic emergency braking, it's the last line of defense. Not an excuse for you to not watch out and be proactive to avoid dangerous situations. We have airbags and seatbelts in cars, but we still strive to not be in a crash to test these (and more) defenses. Modern commercial and multi-tenant buildings are equipped with fire suppression systems, but we still take great efforts to prevent uncontrolled fires from starting inside a building. It's better to be proactive than reactive. Being proactive doesn't mean hiding from all risk of danger. It means taking reasonable efforts to ensure we don't need to rely on our last line of defenses. Yes, our body does have the defenses of the anti-bodies built by the vaccine, but that should be the last line of defense, much like automatic emergency braking, seat belts, airbags, etc. in a car, or the fire suppression system that erroneously tripped in a school one time.. In the case of COVID-19, being proactive means still continuing to physically distance from others, and not hang around those who are sick. It doesn't mean you have to hide next to the ballots under a rock.

  4. For Orion, I went into the Mason Municipal Building and asked for them, and they gave me free copies. That was right after they were filed in May 2019, though, so that process might have changed. I would recommend calling the Municipal Building and asking: (513)229-8500 .

  5. There's not remotely enough detail here to read anything into it. Someone flying from some unknown origin died on a flight. Tragic indeed. The family had "Disney bags". Is that luggage, merch shop bags, or something else entirely? They assume the family was flying from WDW, but they don't even say the plane departed from Orlando. The poster claims a nurse was on the flight who determined it to be related to COVID-19? Based on? They were apparently allowed through the airport and onto the plane with "major" symptoms of COVID-19? How did that happen? But I digress. Perhaps someone did visit WDW while infected with COVID-19, but this random post on Twitter is hardly darning evidence.

  7. My personal opinion is that we will live with this for a while until the herd immunity effect comes into play. Vaccines have all but squashed MMR and polio. However, when anti-vaxxers have an influence, and if there is one exposure, it can spread. I do believe in personal choice, but I also believe in thinking of the welfare of others over yourself, as in doing things not in selfish ambition , but considering the interest of others. But for the confident COVID vaccine injected--please temper your confidence and continue to be careful. This isn't like you got fixed and can now just go all out into 1960's style adult parties! But some things are good from this pandemic. I personally am glad for the line spacing in ride queues. I like my space. Oh, and for the record, I don't own a Speedo and never would. LOL

  8. People are stupid and will continue to do stupid things, like refuse to wear masks and practice physical distancing. We won't have a majority of people vaccinated for quite some time (months? a year?), and enough to have adequate herd immunity will take even longer. That said, a lot of the measures our governments have taken have been... questionable at best. Apparently COVID-19 only spreads at night in states like Ohio.. There's not going to be an overnight switch-flip of "back to normal". Some things will never be the same again. Some people will need time to readjust to going out into modern society again. It's all going to be gradual no matter how you do it, even if only because that's what the people need.

  9. Got vaccinated Tuesday morning. Second dose is 1/5.

  10. Where did I say that one should get the vaccine, stay at home and mask up? My point is that while a tool in the box, a vaccine is not foolproof. If I get the flu vaccine, do I hang out with 10 people who are snotting, sneezing and sweating without being conscious of my surroundings? No. If my house is a comfortable 72 and the outside temp is 17, do I go out for extended time periods in my speedo only, because "I have heat, and go back inside and warm up."? If I buy some chicken at Kroger, and have a skillet or air fryer, do I eat it raw? In a like manner....if one chooses to get vaccinated, one should still use caution. Common sense applies here.

  11. I'm a christian and the son of a former church minister (left ministry for personal reasons) and I had a long talk with my dad and we both agree that this vaccine or any vaccine is likely not the mark of The Beast found in the bible. According to the book of revelation, the mark is going to be used in worship of the antichrist. Taking a vaccine isn't worshipping anything. That's one thing I want to clear up. However, I don't want to get too technical in religion or politics because obviously those aren't allowed on here.

  12. "Survival" is not the only important metric. There are countless cases of people who "recovered" and are still suffering with various symptoms months later. Concerns for lasting lung damage, mental health issues, etc. So you might not die, but your life will never be the same.

  13. In order for people to be truly protected from COVID-19, there needs to be herd immunity where the people around you are also protected with a vaccine. If someone gets the vaccine, there is still a small chance they can catch it from others they are around if they have not been vaccinated. By choosing to get vaccinated, you are not only protecting yourself but others whom you know and strangers who you don’t know.

  14. 1. I will not get a vaccine for something I am 99.98% survivability rate or better. I would guess many feel this way. 2. Is this the beginning of a mark for purchases? I know religion is not permitted, but this is a thought on many minds and needs addressed. I will not argue for or against any one religion, but I know what I believe and will stand for that,

  15. I believe the reason they only had 2/3 trains this year was because I believe they were in the middle of re assembling the trains when everything shut down. They probably wouldn't have been able to get all the third trains up in time so they decided to just go for 2 trains on everything. Orion was done and fully assembled so that didn't matter. That's pretty much what they did for Banshee. They only did one party each row, but allowed a group of 4 to sit in the same row.

  16. The answer to that one is likely yes. Because if they’re going to go taller, why didn’t they do it with Orion? It couldn’t have cost THAT much more to add 30-40’.

  17. The ride is good for the whip/strong pull sensation in the back. If you take the front of the car you have more leg room. So second to last row every time for me

  18. More info on the flight. He was positive. He did die. Didn't read it all so unsure of what all he did in the Orlando area. Can't imagine being on that flight. Best of luck to all involved. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9071655/Photos-passengers-onboard-United-fight-complete-chaos-passengers.html

  19. Ed Hart doesn't care for coasters at all... well, riding them, that is. ;-) He liked what they did to help drum attendance. However, as widely reported, KK did cancel their RMC Raptor. I can confirm they were going to get one. However, from what I've been told, there's a major jaw-dropping change brewing at the park that circumvented. Time will tell, stay tuned.

  20. Truth is, we will never be fully "rid" of COVID. So... we're going to have to learn to live with and manage it. We can beat it down with herd immunity- but it isn't something we'll ever be 100% rid of. Measles is still around. Mumps is still around. Common Cold (a coronavirus) is still around. The best thing that has happened is the development of the Vaccine, yes- but also therapeutics have come a long way in a short time. For some- the treatments, when addressed immediately, have resulted in the virus being neutralized within 2-3 days- in otherwise healthy people. Going forward, the vaccine and current infections will get us to a herd-immunity level that will be sustainable. However, we will need to "ditch" the social distancing, mask wearing, over sanitization, etc... that have been present to allow the population to have a continuous, ongoing exposure to it to keep immunity levels up. If we try to sanitize our way to health, we'll be susceptible to everything. There have been several doctors groups that have said- if you've recovered from it or had the vaccination- drop the overprotecting or the immune system will forget to protect against it. In the future, COVID will probably be part of every annual flu vaccine (just as H1N1 is)- if you're immuno-compromised, protect yourself. and if you have symptoms or are diagnosed- get the therapeutics prescribed immediately. In positive news: as of yesterday only 8 states have growing infection rates. 20 currently have flat graphs, and 22 have declining daily infection rates (some dramatically). MUCH better than a month ago that had 48 states with increasing rates.
