At school, I have noticed that many of my textbooks have roller coasters in them. The most recent one I've discovered is in my Geometry book. It says that "Mike" is visiting Virginia, and while up there, he visits Busch Gardens. It then shows pictures of Drachen Fire and says how "Mike" decides to ride Drachen Fire, then proceeds into a Geometry problem. Anyone else have textbooks like this?

My Trigonometry book has a big picture of Colossus at the beginning of one of the chapters. The book is pretty old, because the double dip i still there in the picture! ----------------- "Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you are a mile away and you have their shoes."
In my Health book (from my freshman year) there is a picture of the Beast in a section talking about adrenaline. Also in my Spanish books (I, II, and III) there have been pictures of one coaster or another, I just could never figure out what they were. All I remember is one was wooden, and the one in my Spanish III book is an Arrow going through two corkscrews with yellow track.
My Algebra 2 book has many pics of Shockwave from SFGAm in it ----------------- Tidal Wave- R.I.P End of 1991. Why did SoG have to steal our treasure... *** This post was edited by kcies13-SFGAm on 10/25/2001. ***

my science book has a picture of Wild Thing at Valleyfair ----------------- "It was sure nice of Mr. Crab to give me a job here!" "And he was sure nice to start you off at $50 an hour! When i started, i had to pay Mr. Crab $100 an hour!"
In my Algebra 2 book from South Western (believe ir or not, all of my classes are in english except for my Language Class) are some photos, in fact, one of the chapters is named Amussement Parks...There's a photo of Vortex at PKI and of Knott's Boomerang, Kumba, Giant Dipper at SCBB...also a photo of a flume ride...I don't undertand how they want me to study from the book with that pictures :)

My geometry book has Medusa's loop in it and it as a problem dealing with ovals. In my Physics book, there's a picture of Mr. Freeze cause it's explains Inersa, And my Algebra bok last year had Kumba up close in the loop above the lift. It's a hot picture!
I've already mention in my topic entitled "Stupid Coaster Passenger" that my book for "You and the Law" (which, by the way, is entitled Street Law) mentions a girl going on a roller coaster. And my Pre-Calculus class just reminded me of the equation I need to test how many feet are in each of RCT's height marks. I haven't seen any pictures of coasters yet in my books, but I'll keep looking. ----------------- RCT hypercoaster crazy!
