Someone did submit news on this, but I decided not to post it because it really just seemed like a non-event. The redundant cables did what they were supposed to.

something more scary than the incident itself, look at the little vote thing. 94% of people who have taken the survey are concerned about carnival and fair ride safety!! quick, everyone vote!!

I too am concerned about carnival and fair ride safety...I wouldn't trust most of those carny workers to tie my shoes...Heck, most of them obviously don't know what end of the toothbrush to use! ;)

Now amusement and theme parks, on the other hand, I _DO_ trust.

Goodbye Whizzer, dear friend. You set me rolling many years ago into this fun hobby...
