Stupid e-mail tricks

Sunday, September 22, 2002 6:03 AM

I know it has come up about the volume of e-mail I get, and how it's just a daunting task to read it all. Check this one out, have a laugh.


i have seen the new rollercoaster for Six Flags Great America's 2003 season. i saw it in the employee parking lot yesterday. there is track for the station,track for the ride, and supports. i know that it is a B&M flying prototype. it will be a superman ride. i also know they will be getting another ride like the X at Six Flags Magic Mountain because they already got the first ride. when fright fest is almost over they will be getting the other ride parts as well. both rides will be ready to open for the public in june 2003. i can confirm all of this because i have pictures of the first ride and i can't show the pictures to you because i will get involved in a laesuit. i know the X type ride will


And by the way, that's how it ended, and I didn't add the bold.

Jeff - actually that child is not far off. Shockwave is going to be modified into an Arrow 4-D. They're just going to add a second rail, put on new cars, and - viola! - new ride.

Moosh - was I that dumb when I was 13?

The predictably childlike behavior of the teens that frequent this site is one of the things I enjoy most during my visits to CBuzz. I see people with one-week tenure with 200+ posts; our "friend" PatMan and his Holiday World issues; CPNuts ability to provide nonsense answers to 18-month-old posts; and I am grateful for the teens in my house that have better things to do with their lives.

Coasterdad - How dare you in any way say that any teenager on this site has nothing better to do. Maybe you were referring to those two people in particular but that was low.

BTW, I think that the person was hurrying to finish that letter, but couldn't because he was caught by a "laeyer".

Be careful about making generalizations like that. I've seen plenty of predictably child-like behavior from adults that frequent this site and there are several teens that can add something substantial to the discussions here.

Jeff, now that you have this topic started, I am sure you have other emails from people with ridiculous things to say.

"Keep them coming" :)

Man, I didn't know people the age around me are that dumb. I don't see what is so hard to not do this kinda stuff. I guess they let stuff get to their imagination. There's a new coaster, X, therefore it's going to be at every park. There's a new B&M flyer, so it's going to be there. They hear a rumor, suppose it's true, and then go crazy. I won't believe anything until I see it, and its always been that way to me in every case.

Superman:Kid of steel: sadly, it's true about many (Not all!). I get several email a day that seem like they come from 6 year olds. I got 2 great emails yself yesterday. (I've taken some of the pics on coastergallery.com) One was from a kid that was convinced that SFMM had several more coasters than CP, saying my info was incorrect. The other was a real gem. To quote from memory: "YOU'RE ASTROWORLD INFORMATION IS ALL WRONG. MAYAN MINDBENDER WAS NOT THE FIRST INDOOR COASTER IN THE WORLD ULTRA TWOSTER WAS NOT THE FIRST HEARTLINE COASTER IN THE WORLD.....GET YOUR FACTS RIGHT!!!!!! Well, I ask you, where did I say any of that? I sure can't find it! I'm also getting tired of the emails asking for help on someone's 5th grade report on coasters! (Happens all the time)

Zero-G, it IS pretty cool to (finally) have a few "sources", but I'll tell you what....as much as I "ramble on and on" about anything and nothing at all, I am VERY certain never to divulge anything that might even REMOTELY jeopardize my relationships with these people....

OTOH, I have finally received word that it's OK to tell you about the world's first inverted giga stand-up log flume with the 95 degree drop...and it's coming to MY home park, so NYAH!

Well I'm 13 and proud to not be writing those kind of emails.

I "dare" say whatever my experience shows me to be true. I did not say that ALL teens acted childish. I also did not limit childish behavior to teens. I made a statement, backed it up with verifiable facts, and moved on.

The way you said it, made it sound like it was a generalization about all teens that frequent this site. Please don't do that...nothing pisses me off more than people that make generalizations about a group as a whole because of a few rogue people that belong to that group. That's like saying that I hate smokers in amusement parks because they always smoke in the queues. This is simply not the case, even though a few people do, it's the minority.

Why was the "teenager" bit even brought up? I dont see anything from Jeff's post stating that email came from a teenager.

Heck, that email could very well have come from a 40 year old adult for all we know.
