Though it's just a memory

Ah, OK, it was another week where I under-performed in writing my mathematics blog. All that I published was some comics stuff. I am going to have, like, no readership report for February. But here's what did run:

On to more original content, then. What's Going On In The Phantom (Weekdays)? Why is the Python held by the Wambesi? November 2019 - February 2020 in the daily comic continuity gets its explanation.

And now let's see more of Lakeside Amusement Park by night.

SAM_7964.jpg

The Matterhorn sign, and the little scenic column beside it, seen earlier, only now all lit up for night.


SAM_7966.jpg

On at least this side of the Matterhorn sign only one of the three triangles lights.


SAM_7967.jpg

Skoota Boats by night, with the light nicely reflecting on the water surface.


SAM_7968.jpg

A view a bit farther out, where you can see the nice red of the lights around the flower beds, the ones bunny_hugger stole a photograph of earlier in this long sequence.


SAM_7971.jpg

The Labyrinthe Crystal Palace mirror maze, seen in the night.


SAM_7972.jpg

Dragon Coaster's sign. This, I believe, is not one badly deprived of working light bulbs but rather one with animated lights.


SAM_7974.jpg

The Round-Up ride by night, with a drop tower in the background to give me a vanishing point.


SAM_7980.jpg

No fewer than three people photographing the Autoskooter ride by night.


SAM_7982.jpg

Turning back around to face the Dragon coaster, where we can see the whole launch station by night. Also in-between cycles on the lighting.


SAM_7983.jpg

The tower for the railroad station, and the tower that used to be for a captive plane ride but is now just a decorative feature.


SAM_7989.jpg

The railroad travelling by night at warp speed.


SAM_7990.jpg

The railroad continuing its warp speed journey by night. Oh, we should go back just to get a ride on this by night.


Trivia: France approved in 1938 credit for defence expenses totalling about 85 percent of 1939's anticipated government revenues. Source: The Vulnerability of Empire, Charles A Kupchan.

Currently Reading: Inside Las Vegas, Mario Puzo. So, huh: either the word was spelled ``extravert'' in the 70s or Puzo was going for something a little different from what we would mean by ``extrovert'' today. Also, there's a two-page photograph spread of a lineup of pinball machines, labelled ``kindergarten for degenerate slot machine gamblers'' which, historically, yeah, kind of. Puzo goes off about ``degenerate gamblers'' about every 1200 words in this book with lots and lots of pictures of Las Vegas casinos that are more 1976 than they even were in 1976.
