Or drop it on a school bus chassis and mount a 250hp outboard motor and outriggers.

Wifey was at Disney World in '71 and got her prized Mickey watch - broken for decades. Local jewelers wouldn't touch it - Disney told us to buy a new one. My Ambien story - was on it for a few months, did not suit me - is about me and that watch. Wife wakes up at 3am and I'm zonked out of my mind, obsessed with this watch - can't even get the bottom off. Next morning, the watch is working perfectly. I have no experience or knowledge of mechanical watches, watch repair, anything. That watch works to this day.

they discontinued them because too many people were having sex in them so.... uhh... make sure to properly disinfect it if you buy it and... enjoy....

I used to think I could use this map in conjunction with the road signs in "Scenes from the Class Struggle in Springfield" (which listed the distance to Ogdenville), along with the fact that whatever state they lived in was one of the nine where George Bush claimed residency, to determine once and for all what state Springfield was actually in, even though I knew they kept it purposefully vague in order to utilize whatever weather/geology/landmarks they wanted.  Ah, nerdy youth.

A guy named Chip Young bought that thing in 2002 for $20K and moved it to Senoia, Georgia. It sits next to a Confederate States cemetery. They rent it out for birthday parties.

If you've ever worked in any sort of amusement park, you'll quickly learn park lore about where to have to sex, and then you'll do it.

They have proven they are twice as smart as the people of Shelbyville.  Good for them.

I just found out that the monorail cars at Zoo Miami are ones used in the 1984 World's Fair. I wonder if Lyle Lanley had something to do with this too.

Solution: Get a second job as a watch repairman. Two paychecks and only one job (that you know about).

But what about his second family?

Lesson learned... collecting stuff is usually an easy way to lose money.

Unless its a big ticket Disney item. Then you rake in the cash.

I might well have ridden in that one. During a childhood family vacation within a year or two of WDW opening, my family and a friend's family were there simultaneously; my family was "camping" (in a motor home) and the other family was staying at the Contemporary Resort.

The Contemporary Resort (or whatever the exact name was) was where the monorail went, and I know on at least one visit we rode in the nose car.

I am saddened to report I don't have the funds to buy the thing.

This.  The song is what makes the monorail episode memorable.

I wondered if it was his or another one since the seller claims it currently resides in Orlando.
