Same thing. ;)

I suppose there's an argument for saying that BTTF is the best ride in Universal Studios. Unfortunately, that doesn't say much for the Studios...

MIB is kinda cool, Earthquake is nifty, BTTF was alright, and the rest of the park is lackluster at best. Mummy is, in my opinion, the only truly compelling reason to go to that side of the complex -- someone at Universal needs to wake up, figure that out, and start reviving it right quick.

Universal Studios is weird (FL version, anyway). The park is beautiful but there really isn't much to do. Mummy is growing on me but aside from that, the only must-see attractions are Earthquake, Jaws, Shrek 4D and MIB. The rest of the stuff I could take or leave... definitely leaving BTTF, of course. As Tina said, it's a 90's ride, ironically based on an 80's franchise!

BTTF isn't being's just being sent "Back in Time"... ;)

You may groan now... :)

I heard that the reason that they are closing the attraction, is because there is a shortage of flux capacitors(sp);)

Maybe the park is running out of money for a new transformer for the 1.21 JIGOWATS of energy the ride needs. Either that or Christopher Lloyed wants more money for his face to be used.

I agree, Futurama seems to be a better fit for a ride like that, but of course, you know, it fell to the FOX mindset of that era that removed us of shows like Firefly and Family Guy (though now I wish they didn't bring Family Guy back at all...)

That ride was cool when I was 5.

The other ride I thought should go or modernize was Jaws. On my ride there the steering wheel of the boat feel off, and the guy was not good at his job either. He was in the action of picking up the gun when it shot jaws.

Hopefully it gets a makeover of some sort.

It just went thrue a makeover recently, allthough I don't think they added anythimg new to the ride.

I know this is kinda geeky, but...

it's actually spelled 'gigawatts'... He just pronounces it 'Jigawatts"

Just the progression on the prefix scale in the metric system..


and of course the infamous google which is 1 followed by 100 zeros (hence the name of the search engine site to imply there's a ton of search results available)

How about googol? Google is a tech company that knows about all your kinky web searching habits.

I may have the spelling wrong now that you mention it... but I remember reading something a while back that it was the reasoning behind the search engine's name -- as if to imply that were how many search results were possible or that it had that much information available to it.

1 googol = 1.0 × 10^100
1 googolplex = 10^1 googol *** Edited 3/18/2007 8:03:17 PM UTC by Acoustic Viscosity***

I thought a googolplex was a movie theater with 100 screens?

(ok, my bad jokes are coming strong now.. maybe I should stop posting for the day :) )

1 googolplex = 10e100^(10e100) ?

I mean this in the kindest possible way, because I really can't tell...

was that an accidental typo of 'inherit' or did I miss an inside joke?

(BTW, we have always owned it... everyone else just doesn't believe it yet ;) )

My girl friend & I rode Back To The Futures many times. We both really enjoyed riding Back To The Future. And we liked riding it in the front row.
My girl friend & I will miss Back To The Future ride. I am so glad that my girl friend & I had a chance to ride Back To The Future ride.

Dear Strong Bad.

I want to start a new website but I
don't have any ideas of what to do for
my website. I was wondering if you
could give me some ideas for my new
website. This website will be cool and
I'll e-mail you when I'm done.

Sincerely Yours:
