ROLLER COASTERS ARE NOT SAFE

And yet, people who wouldn't dream of parachuting from a plane, will get on these contraptions and put their faith in them.

It's a shame.

People who put faith in things that are clearly debunked by science are willfully ignorant; like roller coasters, creationism, conservatism, old men who build boats an put every living species of plant and animal on it for 40 days, virgin birth, guys who live in the belly of a fish for 3 days, resurrection, the bible, a vengeful, jealous, homicidal deity, . . . You get the idea.

Actually roller coasters are science based. It's called physics. The problem those people had is they put their faith in the wrong physics. We all know that Cedar Point is the superior physics and Magnum is it's prophet.

ALL GLORY TO THE MAGNUM! Death to it's enemies!

It's simply a matter of numbers. If you could figure the sheer number of riders on that , or any other thrill ride who aren't hurt, then the number of people hurt or killed is practically microscopic.
You can bet the farm that the drive to and from the park is much more dangerous.

Especially if you have the misfortune of driving a Jeep/Chrysler product! LOL

I saw a website that shows a whopping 40 people were killed on roller coasters from 1994-2004, yet they are not safe....

Statistically speaking they are safer than cars, bikes, lawn mowers, etc. To say they are not safe due to one death seems rather ridiculous...

1) They are built by the lowest bidder

2) That lowest bidder hires Union hacks who show up to work drunk, make every effort to avoid actual work and will take the easy way because they know their Union will cover their lazy butts no matter how inept they are.

Don't blame me,
I didn't vote for a
socialist.

You seem to have a lot of experience at baby Fredo? Isn't this how you were conceived, when your mother gave a drunk a blowjob and swallowed instead of spit? LOL
