WHY, given the grossly overcrowded parks, doesn't Disney build a third park?

You mean like Paris, Shanghai, Hong Kong, and Tokyo?

Yeah, but those parks are for people that talk funny.

I'm pretty sure he was being ironic or something.

Exactly. Sarcasm isn't fun if you have to explain it.

Going back on topic on a third Disney property in the U.S. In all of the new locations, Disney has a partner teamed up with willing to spend a significant amount (billion plus?) on new park(s) and resort(s). These partners own a majority of the Disney properties, while Disney has some ownership. Would Disney take on a partner in building a third destination in the U.S. or build it outright? My armchair instincts, say none of above.

Considering how well the company is doing, and the fact the bought out the other owners of the Paris property a few years back, I don't believe Disney is interested in partnering with other companies to develop more theme parks and resorts.

I'll just leave this here.

Point taken. I did not intend to offend or demonstrate any hostility and I obviously overshot my coverage. I was just making light of the fact that we tend to forget that a third, fourth, fifth, and sixth Disney property already exists outside of our comfy borders.

From that article...

Now I’m not saying all sarcasm is bad. It’s just better used sparingly – like a potent spice in cooking. Too much spice and the dish will be overwhelmed by it. Similarly, an occasional dash of sarcastic wit can spice up a chat and add an element of humor to it.

I’ll just leave that sarcastically there, thaaaaanks.

Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.

Wait. What!?

Oh, FFS.

I nearly made the same joke, but thought it was too easy.

Even if I buy into the touchy-feely hostility article, it's hostility towards people who think that way. That post mocks the 'typical" American response to the idea that Disney parks outside the US don't matter.

Whatever. I've come to terms with the fact that I'm a self-loathing, insecure, cowardly a**hole.

I was too, for several decades. I was shocked to see how much I let anger leak out as sarcasm in all kinds of places once I started paying attention.

I also thought it would probably be the kind of response you might get from the original poster if he/she hadn't picked up their toys and gone home.

Me too Brian Noble. I was fortunate to have a psychologist explain the dynamics of sarcasm to me, finding that my behavior drastically changed after I better understood the dynamics.

Puns are the lowest form of humor.

Sarcasm is a close second.

Anger is a gift.

This has been your daily affirmation.

I read that article and can't believe it was even serious. It should be on the Onion.

kpjb, you read the PsychologyToday article? And, you thought that it should be published in the Onion?

I decided to completely change the way I was living my life almost two years ago, in part because I was slowly drinking myself to death. One of the early things I did after encountering this idea that sarcasm is thinly veiled anger was to go back over things I had written on e.g. social media, and look to see how often I used sarcasm that way. Once I started looking, I was amazed at how much was there that I was never acknowledging in the moment. Most of it was self-directed, but not all of it. Several people I was working with -- my therapist, some mentors, and others -- kept telling me that I was burying a lot of anger instead of facing it. I didn't even understand what they were saying at the time.

I do now.
