  • But you can't ride it


    Ok, file this under waste of space.  A bunch of 8th graders in California have taken up their entire gym with a 1/4 scale roller coaster.
    "Twenty-four feet tall at its highest point and occupying 10,000 square feet, the fully-functional ride towers over the 135 eighth-graders who are its designers, builders and decorators."
    Decorators?  What, is that for the kids who aren't good at anything?  'Well Billy, I don't trust you with a saw and you're too stupid to design anything, so you can just put stickers on what the other students made.'   What does "fully functional" mean?  It looks like plywood strapped to scaffolding; do you even have a passenger restraint system?  And what're you guys gonna do with it now?  Sell tickets to 1/4 scale people with death wishes?  Is someone going to take this thing home like the class hamster at the end of the year? Why don't you go build a deck instead of wasting space, money and time?  Take that crap down and use your gym for running around.  Retards.

    Update
    Wow, that site with the original picure got dugg hard. He must've had some pretty tight upload restrictions. Here's the digg link and a page with the roller coaster photo gallery.

    digg it

    they would have been better off running roombas over in the freeway... what is this supposed to teach? lets build something that won't actually work...I'm still trying to figure out what the administrators that funded this thing were thinking...

    well first of all, the link is dead. so i guess they cant make websites either. and second, it might be a study of motion and gravity and momentum and shit.
    but since P.E. isnt required anymore, let the fat fuckers eat corndogs and watch puppets that the art dept made ride a hooptie roller coaster in the gym.

    dude check out the "puppy task force" in the tribune's photo section too..(see roller coaster link then choose other pictures) How many officers does it take to arrest one lady selling sick puppies? Is "sick puppies" a euphamism for something; like say ICBM warheads, or nuclear fissile material? come on, lets spend the tax money on building a scale but not operable rollercoaster in every gym!!

    Yeah I like how that guy's shirt says "human office" just so you know he doesn't work at one of those monkey offices.
