Your quotes on 20th century coastering.

Tuesday, May 20, 2003 11:34 AM
For an english paper(like alot of people have done), i need your help.

No information or anything like that, but instead your personal quote on what the 20th century was like in the world of coastering.

Anything you want to say will be usefull. Ill be sure to put in the paper your comment in quotation marks(of course), and your name(or)CB screen name. If you would like something such as "coaster enthusiast" next to your name, just note it.

Example:

"20th century coastering was exciting!" -(name), coaster enthusiast

Thats basically what it will be. If your email isnt in the profile, and you want to know if i used your quote, be sure to type it up. Otherwise i have no way of telling you that i used your quote.

Thanks in advance for your help.

I think Paul Ruben.would say something like, "The 20th Century has produced the best coasters in the world's history, hands down. Ride manufacturers truly moved into the next age of coaster design!"

"Coasters in the 20th century went from insane and dangerous to insane and graceful. But if you could get better, the 21st century has started to do just that."

Oh crap, when I go to edit my post I delete. Stupid me.

Or Redman, he'd say "The 20th century has raised the bar as far as coasters go." :)

Edit: As far as my quote goes...

"The 20th centurty has evolved roller coasters into fear machines. With each passing year they become taller, faster, and more terrifying than before."

The 20th century took coasters from risky experiments with wheels and gravity to super high tech computer designed thrill machines all the time advancing ride complexity, design freedom, and safety.

SEE MY QUOTE BELOW.... IT IS MY SIGNATURE! :-)

Don't you think this quote could be used about roller coasters?

(Actually, the quote is by Confucius, sooo, I think it is pretty safe to say that he can't really be called an actual 'roller coaster' enthusiast. LOL!)
