That’s a pretty big crack. What the heck happened? ! ?

Fortunately, a Dad both saw it and filmed it. He called the amusement park, and then he called the fire department.

He got it shut down within 10 minutes.

Some electrical tape has both the flex and stickiness to solve that problem.

It'll be good as new.

And I can go to a pretty dark place. I mean, remembering negative work places. Not this bad, but say a sales job where they want you to lie to the customer, and they say it’s not really lying.

I’m hoping my Spectrum colleagues here help to center me.

Yes, we fully embrace the world just as it is. And we try to develop skills and a realistically optimistic view, and how to speak up. And most workplace issues will be quite a bit more gray area than this. For example, one skill is “ . . this might come back and bite us in the butt, big time . . ” Maybe that has a 50-50 chance of being persuasive, whereas a purely moral appeal, significantly less than 50%. And saying less is often more effective than saying more.

Your ideas please. :D

Mmm, move within a framework, but still have support downward.

Maybe similar to a ball-and-socket joint, like the human shoulder and hip?

All rides, including Fury 325, “undergo daily inspections to ensure their proper functioning and structural integrity,” Carowinds said.

Cough, Cough, Cough ! ! !

Apparently, not a very good daily inspection. Nothing as good as a quick scan with a pair of binoculars.
