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.
- In An Imperfect World, a bit of existential dread that I billed as last week's big humor piece.
- In Which I Apologize For Messing Up All of Time because it was totally my bad, sorry.
- Statistics Saturday: What The Days This Week Have Felt Like a follow-up on the previous day's apology.
- What’s Going On In Alley Oop? May 2017 – July 2017 it's involved a lot of talking about mind-control ray guns .
- Vic and Sade: Meet Five Men From Maine because I know moxie_man isn't here to read this this week.
- Vic and Sade: Meet Rishigan Fishigan of Sishigan, Michigan and try getting that out of your head. You won't.
- Vic and Sade: Meet The Parade Community because I had a good thing going in this little Vic and Sade week and I wanted to keep it going.
- Where The Time Went, this week's big piece, which I wrote ... when?
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.
