The Last Word in roller coasters

https://www.thesun.co.uk/travel/9804461/fastest-tallest-longest-rollercoaster-six-flags/

Suffice to say.........."The Last Word in many roller coaster riders."

"zero to 150mph in just five seconds"

Yikes, the G Force of that would be incredible.  It will flatten a DD.

A mere 1.367 g. Not too much flattening potential there.

Hopefully the last do of the harvest that never ends.  Can't believe that we started July 31st, should take us 10-14 working days.  Off to the State fair in Salem tomorrow with my kids and niece--one last hoorah before school starts.

Went to the county fair in Enumclaw to watch the Rodeo.  Two kids mutton busted halfway across the arena.  The last three bullriders barely made it out of the gate.  The first did not.  The second was a bout a foot out of the gate when he got tossed.  The third guy got on the bull in the gate, the bull twisted and the guy's face smashed against the metal pole that makes up the gate.  He was clocked, they got him off, and my wife saw blood all over him.  The announcer said looks like he's got some blood, yep he's got a scratch, oh, looks like he'll need a stitch or two.   Another guy took his place and the bull came out of the gate barely, turned and smashed the guy against the fence and one more turn and he was off.  Meanest bulls I've seen in a long time word

I wonder if anyone here has ever tried riding a bull. The closest I've come is being stuck on the back of a runaway horse as a kid.

Or maybe accidentally flying my plane into a thunderstorm would count. That was so wild I've been careful never to do it again.

Only a mechanical bull at a fair.  I last about 5 seconds and until the operator turned it on.

The rodeo clown posed the question - Why do bull riders wear helmets?

Whereupon the MC repeated the question in a tone that said to everyone "Are you serious"

Then the clown said, it just seems weird that you'd want to protect something that tells you it is ok to ride a bull.
