You gotta tune your attitude in

My humor blog had another week of mostly comic strip news. Here's what you missed:

So that's all fun. Let's get back to Canada's Wonderland for pictures now.

Some more geese hanging around the park. There were bunches of young goslings too.


SAM_4745.jpg

That's some great necks on those geese.

The ride sign for Behemoth, which is great. As a ride, but also as a sign. You can see how each letter is bigger than a person.


SAM_4750.jpg

To the side of Behemoth is this claw ride, and a Skyhawk-type ride, and if you look in the right spot you'll see the antique carousel too.


SAM_4752.jpg

The queue leading up to Behemoth, and a train coming back from the ride.


SAM_4754.jpg

Here's the opposite side of the queue. Behemoth runs out over the water, whereas Leviathan stays on dry land, letting you know that they weren't thinking of having a pair when they built the first coaster.

Though tempted, bunny_hugger did not get another ride hat.

Fish extremely interested in the feeding station.


SAM_4761.jpg

And, oops. Someone's fed their fanny pack to the fish!


SAM_4763.jpg

And the owner of the fanny pack went over the fence and ducked down to the water's edge to try and retrieve it. Quite the bold move; I was wondering if he was going to fall in. The monitor there is asking a trivia question, 'What is the name of the children's show featuring Snoopy in Playhouse Theatre?: Symphony of [ illegible ]; Snoopy's Dog Days of Summer; Snoopy vs Red Baron; Snoopy's Wild Ride'. Hint: 'It's not a ride!'

Train coming through Backlot Sunt Coaster's billboard. The billboard is in rougher shape than its twin at Kings Island.


SAM_4767.jpg

The cupola above the antique carousel, with angels blowing trumpets, a figure imitated in miniature by the kiddieland carousel.


Trivia: The defense of a doctoral dissertation, in Dutch universities, is still (as of 2008) done with attendees in academic robes and mortar boards. Source: Descartes' Bones: A Skeletal History of the Conflict between Faith and Reason, Russell Shorto.

Currently Reading: When Biospheres Collide: A History of NASA's Planetary Protection Programs, Michael Meltzer.

PS: My All 2020 Mathematics A to Z: Hilbert's Problems and, what captured my interest, wondering why we know about Hilbert's Problems.
