A couple years ago, hubby and I went to Cedar Point. For those who aren't from the Midwest, it's a popular Amusement Park for Roller Coasters and rides.
They have fast pass which most parks do. You can pay extra to wait in shorter lines. Since hubby and I are DINK and super busy with our work, we really wanted to enjoy our mini trip. We splurged and bought the fast pass. It was so much fun. We were able to get off rides and get right back on and enjoy the park to the fullest.
Enter entitled mombie and her 2 kids waiting in the regular line. We were on the Raptor ride (people who know Cedar Point know this is a classic ride) and walked past her once because we had the fast pass. Hubby and I had such a blast on the ride that we got right back on and walked past her again. As we walked past her, she has this angry look on her face. She then says "it's not fair how Cedar Point does Fast pass. It expensive as it is. Not fair you guys get to cut and keep going meanwhile parents like me and... keep reading on reddit ➡
It looks like the company that owns Fantasy Island (Apex Parks Group), is shutting the park down . They started selling off rides and also removed Fantasy Island from the list of parks on their website.
Personally I’m going to miss the place. As much as people like to hate on the park, and probably rightfully so , I thought it was great for smaller kids and a season pass only cost $50.
If you are going to a public event where they search your bags but you really want to bring some drugs in with you, buy an E-Cig. Its important to buy one that takes the larger 18650 Mah batteries. Roll your drugs up an put them into the battery slot. The bag checkers do not check inside the E-Cig.
Frontiersman Lucian Xan's blood flowed freely down his brow until it met his jawline. It pooled on the tip of his chin and then dripped downward, unnoticed and unimportant. "How many are we looking at? I'm getting nothing but squid on the local."
Jack Studde snorted, "More than it's worth countin'." He gave a hapless shrug, "Only so many bullets to fire sometimes Luke. We've done what we could."
Xan's eyes watered as the smoke from the fire began to cloud the cockpit, causing the viewscreen to blur. The red blinking notification was clear enough. "We didn't get a clear line. The message isn't getting out."
"They'll know well enough when the Hermes doesn't report in. Sometimes shooting the messenger is message enough." Jack yanked on the release to his harness, letting some of the pressure off of his chest. Just above his breast was a small winged sandal with the name Studde emblazoned above it. "Wish we'd brought bigger guns. They say the new models got grav pulses."

I was at a player's camp last week and found an "elevator." I took a quick screenshot here - I wish I'd been able to get a video.
But basically this player built some walls/floors around a windmill generator. If you look at the screenshot, you can see one of the blades of the windmills to the right of the lettering. As the windmill slowly turned, you could stand on the blade and it would raise you up to the next floor at a snail's pace.
This was so clever and so stupid at the same time. I couldn't stop laughing. THERE WAS A LINE OF PEOPLE WAITING TO RIDE THE DAMN THING.
Currently in Vorarlberg, Austria for a semester abroad (I’m from Philadelphia, PA). I was wondering what amusement parks are worth a trip to? I know of Europa Park and Gardaland but that’s about it. Are there any other amusement parks that are smaller or more of a hidden gem?
Might go to a few parks in the Spring and Summer.
throwaway, because on one hand this feels petty, but it truly bothers me on a level he doesn't get:
The boys (Daddy and son) have had Daddy Shark and Baby Shark shirts forever. That I got them for Christmas 2 years ago. They tend to wear them when going on outings to the zoo or an amusement park - makes it easy to know who belongs to whom, super cute, etc. I just wear whatever because I'm not mom and, well, I don't have any step/bonus parent wear.
I found a shirt several months ago that had the nickname SS calls me Shark on it. Send to SO who loves it and says I need it. Well, ok, but it feels weird buying it for myself, tell SO who get it.
A week ago friend asks if we want to take both our spawn to park we all have passes for. Jogs memory of So that I need this shirt and he orders it for me, but then thinks "oh, lets include friend and daughter!".
So the shirts would be: Daddy Shark (SO), Baby Shark (SS), Mommy Shark (friend), baby shark (friends daughter), and then nickname sh... keep reading on reddit ➡
I was diagnosed 10 years ago, have never been in remission (though I'm closer now than I've ever been!) and haven't been to an amusement park, a fair, or anything of the sort since (coincidentally, not by design). Now, I know trampolines are a no-go for me, but can anyone tell me if other rides would be okay? My boyfriend has suggested that we go to Hershey Park this summer because I've never been, but obviously I don't want to do my own trial and error experiment if someone else has already found it to be a bad idea, ya know?
Any advice you can give me would be great!

As a lot of fuss has been made about this quote from Martin Scorsese: “I tried, you know? But that’s not cinema. Honestly, the closest I can think of them, as well made as they are, with actors doing the best they can under the circumstances, is theme parks. It isn’t the cinema of human beings trying to convey emotional, psychological experiences to another human being.” -- Mike Stoklasa and Rich Evans of RedLetterMedia also conved a similar sentiment, citing the recent Marvel and Star Wars films among others. I consider myself to be insanely cynical, but the quote from Mr. Wilder has now made me reconsider. While it certainly isn't a black and white issue, I feel like film has the room to be both serious/engaging and also stupid/fun. Feel free to discuss or spew hatred - whatever youre feeling.
So, I’m pretty tall. 6’5” to be exact. Im certainly not the tallest alive but still a good bit taller than most people I think.
Because of that, people (mostly complete strangers) constantly ask me how tall I am or if I play basketball. If/when they find out I swam it’s “you probably take 2 strokes and are across the pool!”
Well that gets old pretty quick so instead of responding with “I’m six foot five,” I decided to have some fun and I started to give indirect answers. The questioning usually goes something like:
Stranger- “Wow! How tall are you?”
Me- “tall enough to ride all the rides at Disney world”
Stranger- “well duh, so am I!”
Me- “haha cool”
And I rarely actually answer them anymore. So, AITA?
Seriously what the hell. I'll never understand why people do this. Is it the kids? Is it all the little kids in the next cart over that make you horny? You know the workers can see you right? Is that what makes it so hot? Do you really have to do that to those poor workers, who already have enough shit thrown at them every day without being forced to sanitize your dumb fucking cum coaster, or even just forcing them to know you exist? What about a germy gum and litter filled family vacation spots makes you so unbelievably, so absolutely, so uncontrollably sexual that you can't wait till you get back to your damn hotel room? You sick fucks.
I honestly believe you get arrested for public indecency and sexual assault and maybe even child endangerment (or whatever the proper charges are) blacklisted from every amusement park and be forced to chew gum that had been stuck under the rails.
I mean seriously it's like you think the world revolves around you and you can drop your pants wh... keep reading on reddit ➡
I started doing psychedelics purely for fun, and was having a blast with LSD back in the day. Even though it triggered a lot of philosophical thinking andI came to realize a lot of stuff about myself, I approached it in a different mindset than on my following trips.
As soon as I started reading some trip reports online to see other peoples opinions and joined reddit to read posts on the r/psychonaut sub, my experience became kind of tainted by other people views, as I started seeing patterns and look for tem on my trips.
I dont want to blame or to paint people on this sub as 'bad' nor say that questioning things and experience different points of view are harmful. What can be an issue is if the person is prepared for it. And I clearly wasn't mature enough for it.
As my tripping goals switched from "having fun, experiencing new things and enjoy feelings of synesthesia and absence of trouble" to "let's figure out who I am, what is life and what kind of entities are controlling ever... keep reading on reddit ➡
Do you think they would have something similar to what we consider to be amusement parks on Earth and different planets around the 24th century? I was just randomly thinking about it. I mean, there are holodecks, but... 🤷♀️
Okay, so a bit of context.
I've been diagnosed with chronic depression and generalized anxiety disorder, along with being autistic. honestly, I don't mind being autistic. I'm proud to be autistic, honestly. but some people make it hard.
One of those people happens to be my dad.
I've suspected on more than one occasion that he's autistic too, which would probably make some of his behaviours the result of internalized ableism. That said, he's been diagnosed as ADHD, and I know that autism and ADHD are similar in many ways, so I could very well be mistaking his ADHD traits for autistic traits.
As a part of my autism, I have very serious sensory issues. These honestly wouldn't be such a big deal if people were just a little more aware of these kinds of things, but here we are, I suppose. While it's different for everybody, I experience hypervision, hyperhearing, hypertactility (acute sense of touch,) a diminished sense of pain and temperature (which is a part of hypotactility. i... keep reading on reddit ➡
In the mission, once you reach the haunted house, there are rat toys/props all over the place. Some of them have glowing eyes, which if you shoot them they turn off.
There are also non glowing rats, giant rats, and skulls (and spiders however I don't think spiders matter).
Towards the end of the haunted house, after you beat the first cleaners, there is a table near the exit that has: A glowing rat. 2 Skulls. A giant rat.
Many of the glowing rats seem to be placed in a fashion similar to the bears in the raid, hidden in plain sight.
This leads me to believe upon finding and shooting all these rats (and potentially skulls and big rats too but most likely not), something spawns on the table at the end, either a mask, an outfit, or a backpack trophy.
