    I flew from Hawaii to San Francisco, and ended up sitting next to a daycare provider and a guy that traveled a lot- we had so much fun talking and laughing even though we just met. It certainly made me be nicer to my seatmates when I fly!
    • Fav Airborne Experience
      My tandem skydive in Greensburg three years ago. It literally took my breath away! Now whenever I start to have doubts about whether I can accomplish something, I just remind myself that I jumped out of an airplane, so I should be able to do just about anything!

    • Drop Thing
      I like those drop rides where your feet hang below you and you are pulled up in the air several stories and dropped...
    • airborne
      At Blizzard Beach, Disney World: the second largest slide has two humps in it. If you arch your back off the slide so that only your heels and shoulder blades are touching the water, you have no drag (and no wedgie), but best of all, you get more speed and when you hit that hump you do get airborne for a second.

      it feels like you are getting launched off the slide (you are), but it is totally safe--the angle of the slide collects you further down.

      it's a scary rush indeed!

    1. I am not by any means judging whether this is a good or bad project. It's pretty simple, the developers are not showing a hardship or need for this economic incentive. It is a vacant field, the easiest for development, and the developer already has the money to invest $26 million for construction. If they can afford that, they can afford to pay property taxes just like the rest of the residents do. As well, an average of $15/hour is an absolute joke in terms of economic development. Get in high paying jobs and maybe there's a different story. But that's the problem with this ask, it is speculative and users are just not known.

    2. Shouldn't this be a museum

    3. I don't have a problem with higher taxes, since it is obvious that our city is not adequately funded. And Ballard doesn't want to admit it, but he has increased taxes indirectly by 1) selling assets and spending the money, 2) letting now private entities increase user fees which were previously capped, 3) by spending reserves, and 4) by heavy dependence on TIFs. At the end, these are all indirect tax increases since someone will eventually have to pay for them. It's mathematics. You put property tax caps ("tax cut"), but you don't cut expenditures (justifiably so), so you increase taxes indirectly.

    4. Marijuana is the safest natural drug grown. Addiction is never physical. Marijuana health benefits are far more reaching then synthesized drugs. Abbott, Lilly, and the thousands of others create poisons and label them as medication. There is no current manufactured drug on the market that does not pose immediate and long term threat to the human anatomy. Certainly the potency of marijuana has increased by hybrids and growing techniques. However, Alcohol has been proven to destroy more families, relationships, cause more deaths and injuries in addition to the damage done to the body. Many confrontations such as domestic violence and other crimes can be attributed to alcohol. The criminal activities and injustices that surround marijuana exists because it is illegal in much of the world. If legalized throughout the world you would see a dramatic decrease in such activities and a savings to many countries for legal prosecutions, incarceration etc in regards to marijuana. It indeed can create wealth for the government by collecting taxes, creating jobs, etc.... I personally do not partake. I do hope it is legalized throughout the world.

    5. Build the resevoir. If built this will provide jobs and a reason to visit Anderson. The city needs to do something to differentiate itself from other cities in the area. Kudos to people with vision that are backing this project.
