Mmm, Rollercoasters

I love rollercoasters.

This proves to be a problem, since I live in South Dakota which contains no amusement parks (short of Wild Water West, if you choose to count that) and no crazy farmer who felt like building a coaster in his pasture. It doesn't help that I'm a poor college student, either.

Hence my new goal -- to someday spend a solid month travelling the US in search of coaster thrills. Granted, I'll probably never have the ability to take a month off work or the funds to cover park entrances, but I can hope, right?

I blame the Travel Channel. They did a special on coasters, and, as it turns out, the place for thrills isn't California or Florida -- it's Ohio. Not only does Ohio have a Six Flags, it has Cedar Point, which one website claims was voted the best amusement park on earth. Not in the US -- on the planet.

Somehow, I'm not surprised. They claim sixteen coasters, including the tallest, fastest one in the country.

Yup, want to go there.

Anyway, I haven't had a terribly productive day. I think I'm going to have to stop talking to you people and start studying my biochemistry.

Have a good week!

Do something unusual today. Accomplish work on the computer.
