  1. Not to say I wish injury upon them...but it's better them than an innocent soul.
  2. No respect for those who drive intoxicated and no sympathy for them when they wreck. You just have to pray they only injure themselves.
  3. Thank you for doing that, being as I wasn't a member then, I really enjoyed these!!!!
  4. Whoooooooo!!!!! 100th post today!!!!

  5. I would have to put White Water Canyon ahead of Boo Blasters as far as physicality. Because you're walking the platform just the same...except you have to endure the elements. Also, just guest stand-point.
  6. I just re-read "The Lottery"...I don't remember it being, errmm, disturbing is the word y'all used so I'll say disturbing. Quite the interesting short story. I only remember making fun of it with my buddies when I was a Freshman in High School. It's much longer than simply 4 years ago.
  7. I've read that before. I was a little too young to comprehend it...I might, possibly, read it right now.
  8. Is "The Lottery" the one about randomly stoning people???
  9. I was too young to not only be exempt from almost all thrill rides, but to also not comprehend the differences...unfortunately.
  10. Very, Very many times...being as I have lived an hour and a half away my whole life...
  11. I received quite a bit of false information from MR. INTERPRETER! but yes, Ed is a resident of Kentucky. His KKRC headquarters is about 2 miles from the park. Like???
  12. ...and Beech Bend, which competes while PAYING state taxes which would be used in part to fund its competitor. If I were the owner of Beech Bend, I'd be beyond livid. Forget Beech Bend...I'M livid...
  13. Also, how can I feel confident in a business plan that does not have enough investors to support itself??? Granted, it's a recession but that seems shady to me...
  14. We doubt it because WE pay taxes and it's OUR money. If I felt confident, I'd invest at my own will...not because I'm forced to. This has got to be one of the most ridiculous business propositions of ALL time. If Hart truly wanted to re-open KK, then he would find the investors to fund it, instead of greedily "bumming" (for lack of better words) of the state and it's citizens. To all: Just curious...is Ed Hart a resident of KY?
  15. Btw, to anyone else who cares...ALWAYS trust Terpy. Never, since joining this website, have I received false information from Mr. Interpreter.
  16. If this were to somehow pass...I would want to be admitted into the park whenever I so choose, being as I would feel like a part owner, and my money is already invested in it. If you want to put your money into it...buy a few shares of their stock...don't make me pay for it.
  17. So if I'm a "tenant" of an apartment, I can ask my landlord for the money to my rent??? No, because I would have gotten the apartment, planning on paying my own rent...which is what I feel like Hart is saying.
  18. Next year you me and Jasper should hang out. Fersure, man!
  19. Seem to be. Haha. I will hopefully be making at least 3 trips, so that may be something I'm going to look in to.
  20. I've said it before, I like Wiki. If nothing else, you can check the sources of the majority of the information. If not, then just take it as if it were false, or search for confirmation yourself. A lot of my teachers recommend using Wiki to search for sources. So while Wiki itself may not be 100% reliable, it can't guide you to somewhere where you can.
  21. Haha. Nice one, can't believe I didn't think of that one. Very good.
  22. I honestly don't believe the kids that run these monstrous machines get enough credit for what they do. They have many lives in their hands to an extent, for minimal earnings. People get paid a lot more to do a lot less in this world. Not to mention the disrespect that they receive from unruly guests who don't know their place in the park. I have respect for those ride ops and what they do. I'm sure it is not as easy as it often looks and their hard work is taken for granted.
  23. burgtoad67, I remember seeing you in the back seat as well. I am fairly new to all of this as well. I've always loved coasters, but never really new there was this kind of society formed around them, or even that the industry was so complex. I was fortunate enough to have a friend teach me the ropes of KI as well as KIC early. So far this site has tripled my knowledge of Ki and other parks. Most everyone I've seen on here really knows what they're talking about, and you and I will learn from them as well. I must say welcome as well!!!
