This has to be the worst, but I saw two pregnant teenagers boarding Chang at SFKK and the ride-ops let them ride. That could have ruined there damn lives.

What have you seen?

Dude,Dude, Dude, Dude, Dude, Dude.....Dude. I've guess you've got a point there.

Hmmm, I could give an editorial comment about *when* said lives were ruined, but I won't.

Let's see, I think it depends on your definition of dumb. It really isn't all that intelligent to try anything unsafe, such as intentionally trying to keep your harness/lapbar several clicks too loose (more than one for comfort), standing up on a non-standup coaster, throwing basketballs between trains on the Gemini, reaching out to touch the structure of various coasters where it can acutally be touched, trying to turn around while the ride is in motion, etc. -- all of which I have seen. And there's plenty more where that came from!

I think basketballs shouldn't be in an amusement park at all, that's pretty dumb(on the parks' parts for giving/selling them), but throwing them back and forth?

A girl threw her sweatshirt she was holding while riding the MB Hurricane, right at me. I was in the backseat and she was holding it above her head about half the train up, she turned around, looked, and tossed it, going as far as to give her throw a little follow through. I'm glad I ducked, but the jacket landed on the tracks, which I reported(maintenance said it actually blew off before they could grab it), but she wasn't very apologetic, she didn't even blink, say nothing when I was like"thanks for the shirt, kid". If I've seen anything dumber than that, it made me forget it.

I'm not even gonna get into what I'd like to do with those basketballs.

So far this year I've seen one guy smoke while ON steel force.

I've seen a woman try to stop the WHOLE queue on pendelum at sfgadv because they wouldn't let her kid on because he was too short. That's a dangerous thing to do there.

I've seen a guy try to ride the phoenix backwards. This really pisses me off because if he falls out then they're gonna put some kind of restraint in that will screw up the airtime.

These are just a few things. If I could remember them all down I would be here for a while.
Good luck in philly j.r.
