GameCube, Great Adventure, OH MY!

“This is definatly the most un-tough pose any man could ever make…”

Yup. I’m slacking again. But which would you rather read a “I haven’t done anything cool” post for three days or would you rather wait with anticipation for a good post? So 😛

Monday Me and Skanko saw Shane at the mall when we went to get Skank’s Mat Hoffman for GameCube. I went and bothered the Parade girls. After that we met up with Turbo and watched The Transporter. Turbo decided that he is going to become a Transporter when he grows up. I think it is a wise career choice for him. Tuesday Ryan’s girlfriend, Megan, took me to lunch. It was nice to see her, I think she was happy to see someone else other then someone in her family for once being that none of her friends are home this summer. When I got home I played with my iMac. Then Shane and I went to Great Adventure to validate our Season passes…

Great Adventure Highlights:
After validating our season passes Shane and I opted for our favorite roller coaster to ride, Rolling Thunder. For those of you who do not know why Rolling Thunder is the best I will tell you. Rolling Thunder is the best roller coaster at Great Adventure because it is a good classic wooden coaster AND it has something that I like to call…DANGER FACTOR! What is Danger Factor? Danger Factor is the factor of a ride’s experience that is that at any given time something EXTREMELY DANGEROUS might happen at any time causing a catastrophic event with many being injured or even dying. Rolling Thunder pretty much is the definition of DANGER FACTOR. In fact it was Rolling Thunder that made me coin the phrase. Rolling Thunder as you may or may not know looks pretty shitty. There are pieces of wood that are rotting, there probabily is an army of termites living inside of it, it needs a paint job badly, the track is so rusted you get tetnus just by looking at it, pieces of wood fly into your eyes as your ride it, and you lose your hearing from the car squeaking against the track so bad. These my friends are the DANGER FACTORS. Did I mention I’ve had my hip knocked out of place due to being slammed against the side of the car during one of the turns? Basically if you sit back row on either car especially the right hand track you are going to get the shit kicked out of you. So because the thing could fall and collapse and I could die at any second and the fact that I leave the ride with bruises makes Rolling Thunder my favorite roller coaster at Great Adventure. Lack of Safety is key to fun. So we ride Rolling Thunder and low and behold what do I see? A NEW PAINT JOB! A CLEANER METAL TRACK! AND LESS SQUEAKING! WHAT IS THIS?! I was prepared for this to suck ass. But low and behold it was still fun. Never dissapoints even when you ride the left side, which we did. We tried to hit up The Chiller but the line was forever so we hit up the new SUPERMAN Ride. Upon inspection of the ride Shane and I didn’t think this would be too much to write home about. The Track makes it look kind of blase (add a little line over the e). Yea so you go on this thing, you have your usual over the head harness and then you’re ankles are braced and then you’re inverted and you blast off. Yea. Its the most physically intense ride ever and you do a whole loop on your back. The most retarted feeling I’ve ever had in my life. It was rediculous. So go and Ride it. Then we hit up Scream Machine classic as always. Then after that we left and went home…

While we were waiting for Superman the wait was like an hour we had an interesting group of kids infront of us. They apparently were from this Jewish camp in Maryland. They all had shirts on that said “I HAD A BLAST AT (something in hebrew) Camp!” They took about 40,000 pictures of the Superman ride. One of them was named “Schnoz” How about that a jewish guy named “Schnoz”! HA! Also while on line with these Jewish Campers the one who’s father was a Rabbi told me that Superman was originally developed by two Jews and then the White man stole it from them by paying them off a measely $500,000. Which I think at the time was a small fortune. So I guess its my fault Superman was stolen from the jews? Because this kid was trying to lay a guilt trip on me it was so obvious. Anyway after that we were walking up the stairs to the station still behind our little campers and there were these pennies stuck to the wall with gum…One of them goes…”OH LOOK PENNIES!” Then they all proceeded to try and pull them off the wall…I kid you not folks…Ask Shane he saw the whole thing right before his very eyes…Also I should point out one kid had a “Boston Red Socks” hat in hebrew. It was pretty hot. I asked him where I could get one his response was “Boston”. So next time I’m in Boston I’ll be sure to track down my hebrew Red Socks hat. Ahh Great Adventure bridging people of all walks of life…I should also mention how we got to watch security bust some people for line cutting it was quite a hot sight…

Right now I’m at work…It is slow…Sorta. I’ve seen nothing but Macs all week. Sometimes I forget what a PC does…

Thats all for now…

Till next time…”I caught my daughter giving head to my brother…”
