So what's my humor blog had ready for content the past week? Things like this:

And so what did Six Flags over Texas look like back in March of last year? Kind of like this:


Mr Freeze Reverse Blast train being shuttled sideways in preparation for launch while the other train unloads.


Bye! Train blasted in warp speed, going backwards to start. It comes in facing forward.


The tunnel to the great outdoors, and the only spot of non-blue light in the launch station. Also one of those shots where I thought, oh, I don't have my camera out, I don't want to take the time to start it up. And then remembered, what, because I'm going to be back sometime soon? That's daft. You can see both trains being readied, one loading and one unloading, here.


My mini-milestone: the sign and station for the Runaway Mine Train. It's of historical importance as the start of the Mine Train-style coaster. It was also the designated backup in case Judge Roy Scream wasn't available to be bunny_hugger's 200th coaster, since like every park has a mine train nowadays and they're the grown-up roller coasters kids aren't afraid to ride. And it was my 175th logged coaster.


Cars going out on the Runaway Mine Train, which includes a little trip through a western house.


Choose your path. I'm not sure whether the motto for the Runaway Mine Train or its junior companion is better. chefmongoose, thoughts?

Trivia: The Hague Conventions of 1899 and 1907, and Geneva Convention of 1929, addressed the humane treatment of captured enemy combatants, but specified nothing about how to capture them humanely. Source: The World Within War: America's Combat Experience In World war II, Gerald F Linderman.
