But please don't keep me waiting

And my mathematics blog for the week.

And before a last bunch of Marvin's comics, let me ask: do you know What's Going On In Rex Morgan, M.D.? September - December 2017 Oh. Well, all right then, go about your business.

The Striking Cobra, which has some kind of malfunction about one in every three times I visit at least.

Roller coaster ride simulator that showcases of Cedar Point's roller coasters. Mean Streak no longer exists in a recognizable form. Mantis has been renamed and the seats changed in a way that wouldn't really affect this simulation. I've never been able to hear the Peter Frampton music but I guess that's there?

What the exit looks like. And fair warning.

And what pinball league looks like at Marvin's. There's not really enough space for people to maneuver. Also this is why there hasn't been a furry gathering here, despite what an awesome spot it would be, because could you imagine putting fursuits into this mix? Yeah.

Oh, also, this particular time was a league finals, an I was able to win the B Division. Here the trophy's shown on the lone electromechanical there, Bally's Wizard.
