He's got a chauffeur that's a genuine dinosaur

It wasn't the week I expected on my mathematics blog. But it was an average-busy week anyway. Here's what with. Something something something RSS feed/reader.

Oh, and hey. Did you know What's Going On In Alley Oop? October 2017 - January 2018 It's my first story comic recap of the year. And now that you do know, here's some more of Six Flags Over Texas.

Choose your path wisely. (The left is just the exit path.) Judge Roy Scream sits opposite a lake from most of the park, but that does mean it's nice and visible and tempting from the street outside the park.

Anticipation! bunny_hugger with her sign all ready for a front-seat ride on a new roller coaster.

The picture that made the American Coaster Enthusiasts newsletter! bunny_hugger making trouble wearing her Cedar Point shirt on a Six Flags ride.

And the happy aftermath, posing at the exit of the ride. To the right is the lake and beyond that the main body of the park.

Isn't that a fine pile of wood? Most of the path of Judge Roy Scream as seen from the exit path.


Trivia: Around 1893 Edward Goodrich Acheson's plant in Monongahela, outside Pittsburgh, was selling twenty pounds of electrochemically-produced carborundum per day, at $576 per pound. He estimated he could sell twice that were cheap electricity available. Source: Empires of Light: Edison, Tesla, Westinghouse, and the Race to Electrify the World, Jill Jonnes.
