Two boys were on the Sizzler, a ride at the Mercer County fair July 25, when the safety bar restraining them "just came loose," the mother of the boys said, and the boys were thrown from their car.

Isn't that amazing that it's the people, and mostly not the machines that cause the accidents? I like how they add that 3 have been killed, and 9 have been injured GLOBALLY. And how many people have been on this ride that have never been killed (300 million??? They don't say how many people have been on a Sizzler model GLOBALLY.).

Here is another fun thought. My local fair is coming up very soon at the biggining of september like it does every year. Most of the ride operators take good care of there rides and have some sort of passion for the job, however, it scares me when I walk aroung the park and see guys that look like they were smoking the pipe the night before (not tobacco or mary jane either) and are in no shape to be responsible for the ridders in the park. Seriously though, some of these guys are no good dead beat people. I not one to judge a book by its cover but I mean come on.
