monday august 24

today i went to canada's wonderland with a friend. at one point, we rode shockwave, a 'thrill ride' whose five-person cars are tricky to get out of at the end of the ride -- the weight shift of everyone leaving sends the car leaning back and makes it difficult for the last person to exit without either leaping out or banging their crotch on the seat. having waited in line for a while and observing this happen to multiple people, we were prepared, and immediately jumped out of the ride as soon as the restraints were lifted. as soon as we did this, we heard a girl (approximately eight years old) further down our car make a guttural noise and exclaim "OHMYGOD!" as her attempt to jump out of the car was foiled by the weight shift throwing it backwards. oops.
