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.
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.
