The worst job I ever had was at a small, local entertainment center/amusement park. The joint had go-karts, putt-putt, slides, etc. in addition to the typical fair rides like the giant swing, small coaster, and more. The managers were crabby and gave improper training to us teens hired to manage each ride. Looking… Read more
What, no mention of the Verrückt water slide at Schlitterbahn Kansas City, which was built after the company somehow convinced the MO legislature to exempt it from any state inspections?

As you’re getting to know by now, I love some high-mileage warriors. My 2012 Smart Fortwo has 175,000 hard-earned…
