  1. Lol. I remember when this was announced back in 14/15 and a certain bloviating owner of a review site would just hammer anyone that was skeptical of funding this thing. “It is FUNDED, it is going to happen, FUNDING is not a problem, you don’t know what you are talking about. I know everything about this. You are stupid idiot. It is already FUNDED, BLAH, BLAH, BLAH.” It was funded until it wasn’t.
  2. Costco usually has whole boneless rib roasts for about $9/lb averaging about 15lbs, though our location hasn’t had them the past couple of months. Most full service grocery stores will sell them if you ask the butcher, best to call first. I usually cut them in half, slice steaks with half then smoke the other half as a roast and have prime rib for dinner and then put leftovers portion on the slicer and have the best roast beef ever, melts like butter. As to what temp to cook it? As with all things whatever tastes best to you. No wrong answer here. The ends will always be
  3. This topic came up a few years ago and the discussion got rather heated. So I emailed guest services and their response was once the food leaves the window you are free to do whatever you want with it. With the one stipulation that the person the plan was purchased for had to physically be there to order and receive the food. They didn’t mention it specifically but the park probably wouldn’t take kindly to you turning around and trying to sell your burger or salad on the midway. Unless there has been a policy change, and I certainly haven’t seen any indication of one, it is sa
  4. Fuzzy Math must be a 500 or 600 level course, can’t find it in the undergraduate catalog.
  5. So if the parks are able to operate profitably at 15% attendance the profit margins at 50% capacity in “normal times” must be enormous, but they aren’t. What gives?
  6. ^ Interesting. I would have thought scanning of passes/tickets would suffice for entrance and just a clicker for exits.
  7. Read reports TTD was operating the past couple of days. Not sure about that yellow thing on the beach.
  8. We could talk about school opening*, that certainly won’t lead to back and forth bickering. * actually does directly impact the parks. Lol. But merchandise bagging protocols will have to suffice I suppose.
  9. If this results in a resignation it could impact the political dynamics of Ohio’s coronavirus response. https://www.daytondailynews.com/news/breaking-news-fbi-agents-are-at-ohio-house-speaker-larry-householders-farm/JCKHFEK4ZFH5HJF5O4MCP3BY2M/
  10. Is Action Park off the rails? I think the obvious answer is one or both of the Busch parks, though something like Adventureland would probably be better Platinum sales. Definitely not an Indiana park.
  11. Was the hit-skip at least wearing his mask?
  12. Large scale study in South Korea: young children half as likely to spread, 10-19 year olds just as likely to spread as adults. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/07/18/health/coronavirus-children-schools.html
  13. If this can happen in Texas this can happen in your town. 85 babies test positive for COVID-19 in Nueces County https://www.kiiitv.com/article/news/local/watch-live-city-of-corpus-christi-nueces-county-officials-join-tamucc-to-provide-covid-19-updates-in-the-coastal-bend/503-55e9ab3a-9bef-496f-8bb4-8c9ec20ee3a3
  14. Schlitterbahn New Braunfels - Platinum Pass valid for admission at Schlitterbahn New Braunfels after January 6, 2020. Schlitterbahn Galveston - Platinum Pass valid for admission at Schlitterbahn Galveston after January 6, 2020. https://www.cedarpoint.com/legal/season-pass-terms
  15. Which problem are you talking about? There are several.
  16. Monday Wednesday https://thehill.com/homenews/media/507663-chuck-woolery-deletes-twitter-account-after-announcing-his-son-has-coronavirus
  17. So you are saying we can use all the empty airplanes as modular classrooms?
  18. At least 31 percent of children tested in Florida are positive for COVID-19: report https://www.foxnews.com/health/over-31-percent-florida-children-tested-florida-positive-covid-19-report
  19. Three CP employees test positive for COVID 19 https://sanduskyregister.com/news/267036/cedar-point-employees-test-positive-for-covid-19/ Just like the KI employee no specifics are being released. There are bound to be more at the parks but at least they finding some and taking action. CP has only been open a week and given the probable long test turnaround time it seems like a low probability these infections occurred at the park, at least while open.
