Cause all that heat speeds change in everything

I'll poke back in to Michigan's Adventure right after pointing out what you've overlooked from my humor blog the past week. RSS feed mention et cetera.

Outer bunny worried she'll come out looking silly when I finally caption this.

Panoramic image of the main bulk of Michigan's Adventure as seen from the station of the Zach's Zoomer roller coaster, one of the park's three wooden coasters.

Space tearing open and letting untold terrors break through and fall into the lagoon at Michigan's Adventure.

Panoramic view of Michigan's Adventure around the lagoon, which Cedar Fair built for the park. The roller coaster on the left, Thunderhawk, was moved from Geauga Lake outside Cleveland when Cedar Fair closed that. The wooden coaster to its right is Wolverine Wildcat, a near-clone of Knoebel's Phoenix, which is one of the all-time greatest roller coasters. (Wolverine Wildcat is braked a little too much to be all-time great.)

View of marshy lands and, in the distance, Shivering Timbers, the main (mile-long) wooden roller coaster. This is as seen from the train ride that's the only way to get along the west side of the lagoon; the park is otherwise arranged as a big C shape, and you can't walk a loop around the rides


Trivia: Railroad charters in 19th Century Maine commonly included the explicit purpose of being ``for the protection of the Northeastern frontier''. Source: The Story Of American Railroads, Stuart H Holbrook.

Currently Reading: Sabrina The Teenage Witch: Complete Collection, Volume 1, Editor Victor Gorelick. I'm not actually sure this is the best person to credit the compilation for, but there's a lot of credit given on the early pages and I'm not sure who actually masterminded the project.

PS: Why Stuff Can Orbit, Part 13: To Close A Loop, another piece of my orbital-mechanics puzzle.
