FTFA-"Describing the suspect as a Black man wearing a black Covid-style"

Is capitalizing black when referring to a person a new grammar rule that I missed or is the author an idiot?

See? This is proof that mandatory masking depletes the brain of oxygen and makes people crazy!

I'm actually surprised this doesn't happen more often at Kennywood. What quality of people do you expect at a park that has Garfield as their mascot?

No bystanders were injured. At least the shooter could aim the gun. Maybe public spaces should have an altercation arena. Disneyland thunder dome. It's going to happen we might as well monetize the violence. Contestants don't get arrested or win anything. They just get to settle whatever stupid shiat they're upset about and no one else gets hurt. I've got popcorn.

Going to Kennywood used to be a once a year obsession through my school.  You F Up  at school and instantly no Kennywood for you.  The Thunderbolt, Racer, Jack Rabbit, Noah's Ark,were scary fast and sounded so rickety there was a genuine feeling of being brave to ride them.  Alas it seems the being brave part is now just going to the Park.

I haven't been to Kennywood since I was like 8 years old, like late 80's maybe early 90's. It was like the epitome of "ride at your own risk."

That Bunny Hop ride they just kinda loosely laid a lap band over the riders, and you were bouncing 4' out of your seat. The Laser Loop didn't even HAVE seat belts, even that dumb turtle ride was hilariously terrifying.

I miss that place.

Is Kennywood the Kenny Rogers equivalent of Dollywood?  (It's a serious question.)

Also, I checked their website and they see to believing up to the hype.

bringing back Roman arena death sport is way over due. it would raise awesome cash for charity and people would get a much needed outlet. cheerleader football is another future fun pass time we should look into as well as legalized sex workers.

Next summer my daughter will be 6, and it will be time to introduce her to Amusement parks. I'd like to start her off with Kennywood during a visit back home. I haven't been there in forever and hope it still holds a lot of its old time charm, but I'm not going to hold my breath on that.

Cedar Point will be next on the list.

We didn't revisit Kennywood (odd, because my entire family is from Pittsburgh) but we did Cedar Point, King's Dominion, and King's Island a few years ago. It's funny to look at these 40 year old rides that were terrifying but fun as a young kid. And later, you're like "THAT'S the Demon Drop?! It's like 4 stories high!"

I've heard the current management has let the park go and have been cutting corners everywhere (especially in security). Multiple Eyewitnesses report there weren't any metal detectors on or bag checks going on that evening.

Their is the possessive pronoun, as in "their car is red"; there is used as an adjective, "he is always there for me," a noun, "get away from there," and, chiefly, an adverb, "stop right there"; they're is a contraction of "they are," as in "they're getting married."

Ragin' Asian: What quality of people do you expect at a park that has Garfield as their mascot?


They're mascot is Kenny the Kangaroo introduced in 1974. Garfield was a licenced character (they also have disney chracters). They gave up garfield a couple of years ago including the nightmare ride and converted that back into the Old Mill. They also have some of the biggest coasters in the world including the Steel Curitain which has the biggest inversions in the world...  It's far better than most 6 flags parks.

Yes. The reasons are complicated and it seems to mostly be an American thing that no one understands.

This really isn't a bad idea. There's been a lot of controls put in place in most of human society over the last century or two to prevent significant amounts of violence. It's now mostly relegated to spectator sports.

However, over 99% of human history, a duel (in one form or another - always the same idea) was an acceptable way to settle disagreements. It might not be the best way, or the best option for society, but if people are going to be violent, it's best to have them do it in a controlled area where no one else is in danger.

I'd support some kind of arrangement so that people with blood feud-level disagreements could check into an area where they could fight it out with whatever and leave the rest of us alone.
