Life After People.....on the History Channel

They visited Knott's Berry Farm, and investigated the Silver Bullet. Apparently, sand inside the track will eventually expand with water, and from the inside, will break apart.

I think Xcelerator will already be down on the ground from seagull poop by then.

With People gone why would the Seagulls hang around Knott's Berry Farm once the food runs out there? (The Sea Gulls hang around Knott's for food from People, if they're gone, that food source is gone.) Yea I wonder what does using Sand inside the track would do with the metal. I wonder if they use a special sand for inside the B&M track pieces or not.I saw a few episodes of that series and find it really fascinating. It really makes you wonder what if.

Even without people.....Cedar Point will still win it's Golden Ticket Award.

Didn't see the show, but I would like to add that I am really starting to get tired of the "end of the world" scenarios that have been plaguing the entertainment industry the last few years. It's as if the human race is asking for it.

We aren't? ;)

^^ I remember watching one of those shows a few years back. They did a top 10 list of the biggest threats to mankind. Among the items on the list was a pandemic of some disease, major famine, and overpopulation. I thought, well once we have that pandemic and famine, shouldn't that take care of the overpopulation problem? I guess that's why I don't produce TV documentaries.

I enjoyed the original 2-hour "Life After People" special, but don't get the idea of a regular series.

The big picture basics of what happens around the world was interesting, but how many different little mundane things do I need to see how they'd decay after humans are gone?

The fruitcakes survived longer than the coaster I believe.

Wait a minute....over population will be the cause of our extinction? Really?

When people are gone
only two things will be left:
insects and fruitcakes.

^If there were any people left, they'd still eat the insects first... ;)

/agrees with Gonch - I too saw the "pilot", and have no interest...

If we were all fruitcakes, there wouldn't be any more people.
