And the point is?  You can be brilliant and not school educated.  As Daddy keeps telling me when I kick myself for going back to school: "If you want to learn, do it.  If you want to credentialize what you learn/know, go to school."


And yes, before anyone asks - I *AM* a full time student.  And yes, I do rock the sexy nerdgirl glasses, tyvm.

Hm - thought I had already replied.  Anyway...
 
 
I do recall you telling me that story.  I figure the pyraminds in Giza had been built with much the same technology, and they are still around.  Besides, if I go flying off the Thunder Bolt, I figure I have a chance of landing smack dab in the middle of the Potato Patch.  YUM!

hows this then, years ago there used to be a pool close to where the water splash ride is to the side of Noahs ark. which sucks anymore. it was more fun the old. especially if you knew the secret side passages... sort of like behind the burlap curtain......
 
Dis you go on "Hard Headed Harold's Haunted Hideaway" ??

Don't know if that is there anymore.  Either they have done away with it or renamed it.
 
We usually did not do the dark rides - HG was just not up for them.  Now, the Kangaroo and the Paratroopers, she was all over that.
