It's Friday. Let's Get Out Of Here.

Our cat in the house

Tax dollars at work?

Is this real?

I'm having flashbacks to the old Six Flags "Sombrero Ride"
and whatever that ride that would spin, push you up against the side of the wall 
and the floor would drop out. 

Get me this dog!

The car blowing up is real in that the car blew up. It was a home-made car that overheated. The green thing is fake.

Yes, car explosion is real...but little green alien bomb scooter is not.

Spindletop at 6 Flags was the dropping floor centrifugal force ride.

I think everything except the turtle shell is real in that explosion one. My reason is this: There's a reflection in the hood of the car and it's all reflected except for the turtle shell.

I guess that's evidence of it being real. Would the whole scene be reflected on the hood of the car like that?

The sombrero is still there... I remember the one that would push you up on the walls,, but forget what it was called.

you're getting two rides mixed up. The Mexican hat WAS a ride shaped like a big sombrero and everyone sat in a seat as it went round and round and up and down. The Spiniker was a Rotor-styled ride that went round and round and the floor would drop out of the bottom leaving the riders "pinned" against the wall by centrifugal force.

Spindletop (sp?) was the spinning ride.

You're thinking of the Spindletop, not the Sombrero ride.

"Sombrero Ride"

SeƱor Barry, I believe you are referencing the Spindletop centrifuge ride.

That would be the Spindletop ride.

You're both wrong. Spindletop was the bad guy with the nails sticking out in "Hellraiser."

Man, y'all are old. The green turtle shell is from Mario Kart, one of the highest selling video games of all time.

The Logan Act (1 Stat. 613, 18 U.S.C. § 953, enacted January 30, 1799) is a United States federal law that criminalizes negotiation by unauthorized persons with foreign governments having a dispute with the United States.

WASHINGTON — John Kerry’s bid to save one of his most significant accomplishments as secretary of state took him to New York on a Sunday afternoon two weeks ago, where, more than a year after he left office, he engaged in some unusual shadow diplomacy with a top-ranking Iranian official.

He sat down at the United Nations with Foreign Minister Javad Zarif to discuss ways of preserving the pact limiting Iran’s nuclear weapons program. It was the second time in about two months that the two had met to strategize over salvaging a deal they spent years negotiating during the Obama administration, according to a person briefed on the meetings.

What Im I missing? Kerry and Hillary can be cell mates.



TRUMP!!!!!!!!

Spindletop is a salt dome oil field located in the southern portion of Beaumont, Texas in the United States. The Spindletop dome was derived from the Louann Salt evaporite layer of the Jurassic geologic period.

Not sure if anyone has mentioned it, but that ride was Spindletop.

3:46--The Spinnaker was a different ride, more like a Ferris Wheel, but it was close in location to the Spindletop--it was there in late 70's/early 80's

The sombreo ride made me pee in my shorts when I was a kid, so I never road it again. The spindletop ride where the floor is removed from under your feet...made me very ill...only road it twice.

Guess the road workers found out why they call them hard hats...lol

Spiniker was the ride where you basically got in a cage and steadied a seat. It started spinning and the ride was on an arm that would raise 90 degrees straight up, like a ferris wheel. Then lower back down to the ground.

Hurray for 4:50 and the “vintage Six Flags” statement by naming him/herself as DF SKULL ISLAND! I remember those early Six Flags years—especially the La Salle River Boat ride!! Fond memories.

Jesus Christ, I'm starting to see why so many people fall for fake news. No less than 4 comments jumping all over BG for confusing the Sombrero and the Spindletop when he clearly said the gif reminded him of the Sombrero AND the Spindletop. 3 letters. A-N-D. No wonder so many people's opinions I hear are based solely on the headlines and not the actual story.
