Good point....Thought we could all learn something from each other here! If you stumble across an interesting fact, share it here
I'll kick things off...
Today I learned of Cunningham's Law, which states that the best way to get the right answer on the Internet is not to ask a question, it's to post the wrong answer.
Never heard of this before, but I guess it makes a good point! Given that I share a surname with the person who this law is named after (Ward Cunningham if you're interested), it tickled me. Maybe I should start putting this into practice
But to be honest one should be honest with atleast the spirits with which the forums are formed... Sharing of thoughts and experience is a noble job.... While playing tricks by intentionally posting wrong answers is not.... Act local Think Global!
Once a person reaches the top, they can control how slow or fast their car goes down the mountain. A single driver must be over age 9 and a ticket is $65. A driver and passenger is $75, with the driver having to be over 18; the passenger must be ages 3 to 12.
The coaster will be open to the public on weekends only and includes commentary for riders as they ride down the mountain through twists and turns that replicate the historic track.
“The coaster follows the alignment of the 1932 & 1980 Olympic Bobsled track as it descends the mountain. The views are amazing, and the curves get your heart pounding," ORDA President & CEO Mike Pratt said in a press release.
In the United States, cats are the most popular house pet, with 90 million domesticated cats slinking around 34 percent of U.S. homes.
The ancient Egyptian reverence for cats is well-known—and well-documented in the archaeological record: scientists found a cat cemetery in Beni-Hassan brimming with 300,000 cat mummies. Bastet, an Egyptian goddess of love, had the head of a cat, and to be convicted of killing a cat in Egypt often meant a death sentence for the offender.
That's about 30 miles from my home, but I'm too afraid of heights to try it.TIL there are some advantages to living in america.
America's longest mountain coaster opens in Lake Placid
Having reached peak altitude, it then headed back towards Earth at 200mph (322kph), with its parachute deploying at around 62,000ft (19,000m) to enable a safe landing.
The altitude reached was reported to be equivalent to the height of 880,000 Iceland chicken nuggets.
I knew that the Rocket Man series i watched in awe at the ABC Minors all them years ago would become reality.
