Re: Euthanasia Coaster.

not a very good design, i'd go for a large drop rising into a zero g roll with well placed garot wire for a smooth decapitation followed by a large bit of inverted track with a couple of outwardly banked helixes thrown in to drain 'em out before it gets back to the station. cleaner, easier, cheaper,...

Re: Japan hit by massive earthquake

I agree mate. The war [and let's not pretend it's anything else, we are bombing them to :censored: ] Is the perfect news story to brush this under the carpet. :| Funny how this all kicked off just days after a major radioactive leak. If I was the paranoid type, I'd say it was almost convenient... :...

I never got to ride the one that used to be at Alton Towers (Boneshake...
