FEAST YOUR EYES ON THE AMAZING... THE UNBELIEVABLE.... THE "ACTUALLY EXISTING".... PARK WORLD MAGAZINE!
AND SEE THE JANUARY ISSUE HERE!
** SHOCKED **
so should we still let Paul to the front of the lines? Maybe if we give him a banana?

Dont even get me started on this one....They still owe me issues that I had paid CASH for years ago. Never got even one. No I will NOT send them another dime and would recommend that no one does until they honor their own obligations from years ago. *** Edited 2/21/2007 10:42:36 AM UTC by beast7369***

Banana or no banana... it'd be nice to have a print version of that. If it's all on-line based, something doesn't seem right.
...otherwise, it looks news-worthy, even though the articles seem more like advertisements than anything else... it's just fun to read, but nothing really informative other than ride manufactures tooting their own horn on their own products.

Small claims court Did you get a receipt?

No receipt...therefore nothing will come out of it in court.... Once burned twice shy though. I was a lot younger and stupid then. I always get receipts for anything cash now.

That sucks, just think of how satisfying it would be to take an obnoxious dillhole like that to court.
Or the obnoxious dillhole's company at least.

So would we have to pay $138 to view this one too? ;)

Wow, that's pretty steep. What the hell are they publishing that makes it worth that kind of money? I've read many of Paul's articles in Roller Coaster magazine throughout the years and many of them are horrible, the better ones being mediocre at best. I always get the impression that he's talking down to the reader, probably because he's ridden "most coasters currently in operation throughout the world"... probably a few on other planets as well.
I wonder if he's ridden "Gonch's Spinning Chair" or SLFAKE's "Dryer Falling Down the Tree"? ;)

Interesting. Not cheap...
Is it just me or does that Amanda Thompson person look like Debbie Gibson?

Considering I could get 5-6 magazine subscription for the price of their one, I'll just keep looking through their on-line version for free if an article catches my eye.
...I'm just not that desperate for coaster literature, plus I don't have that extra $138 burning a hole through my wallet!
Another magazine I've like at times is

Nope. He got jacked, threw a fit and stormed off because I wouldn't give him front of the line access. ;)

You can be sure he has not nor will ever get his MTR credit! ;)

GOSHDAMNIT MOOSH you just *had* to beat me to the M:TR joke I was ready for halfway through the thread.

I can't believe someone with that high a coaster count just now made it to HW. What was he waiting for? Oh, and the Voyage drop is at a 66 degree angle, not 55.

Holiday World -
Not enough TV cameras to jump in front of, and definately not enough banannas.
Friday, February 23, 2007 9:22 AM
Moosh & Gonch: Good to hear you're standing your ground with the guy. Don't let him take advantage of you... in different ways, of course ;)
Raven: Holiday World probably didn't give him a never-ending front-of-the-line pass and that's likely why he just made it there. No red carpet = no visit from the self-proclaimed lord of enthusiasm ;)

Somebody email him a link to this thread.
