I guess the rumor of a roller coaster catastrophe to set death in motion was true. http://www.darkhorizons.com/2006/final/final3.php
It looks like a vekoma or an arrow. Anyone know what it is? *** Edited 5/3/2005 4:37:23 PM UTC by mike.s.***

Oh great, this is exactly what the industry needs. I wonder how many congressional hearings/inquisitions will happen because of a story. Just like the time some place in Arizona wanted to ban dihydro monoxcide because it's poluting our water and it's found in styrofoam cups, and is found in 100% of all murderers after a killing.

The coaster is Corkscrew at Playland in Vancouver.
Edit: Mole...what are you talking about?

Cool, I have been on this coaster when I went to boblo island years ago. Kinda cool being on a coaster that is in a movie.

Um... that's what the industry needs? How about the airline industry anytime an airplane crashes in a movie? Does that affect public opinion? How about when a car catches fire in a movie? Does that make people stop driving?

I don't know, man, they made that "Titanic" movie, and I haven't taken a trans-Atlantic trip by boat since.

Moosh you are bad! As for the movie and staying on topic, I really didn't want to fly in a plane after I saw that movie. It took me 6 months to get on a plane.
But as far as this movie, I may see it or I may not, really depends. But hey if anyone doesn't watch it just cause a coaster crashes, well then don't watch it.

Ha, I thought that was a middle school student who won a science fair because nobody realized it was the chemical name for water. Either way funny story.

From the DHMO Research Division home page (www.dhmo.org
"Dihydrogen Monoxide (DHMO) is a colorless and odorless chemical compound, also referred to by some as Dihydrogen Oxide, Hydrogen Hydroxide, Hydronium Hydroxide, or simply Hydric acid. Its basis is the unstable radical Hydroxide, the components of which are found in a number of caustic, explosive and poisonous compounds such as Sulfuric Acid, Nitroglycerine and Ethyl Alcohol."
DHMO isn't water, those naming conventions are used to describe certain ionic and covalent compounds. As far as I know, water is just water even if the prefixes make the chemical formula. I suppose I could also be getting duped...
Am I a jerk or missing some sarcasm in that last post?
Anyways, let's hope the movie doesn't damage the industry's reputation or get any politician's in a tizzy.

My bad. Do you see why I dropped my chemistry class my first year of college?

DHMO.org is a joke. It is completely 100% sarcastic. Dihydrogen Monoxide is plain water. That entire website only describes H2O.
Jokes on you.. The website is completely set up by the webmasters to get people to believe that water is Bad for you. LOL
