My Top Ten Cedar Point Rides

Top Ten Cedar Point Rides
I've gone to Cedar Point every year for the most part since middle school. Every 2-3 years they add a new ride which is usually sweet. Since I'm going again in a few weeks, I decided to list my 10 favorite rides. This is based on the following criteria - funness, scary factor and line wait. Rankings are 0-10, 10 is the best, 0 the worst.


Honorable Mention:
Sky Ride


Scare Factor - 10 - The only real thing I'm afraid of dying on. Your being held up by a clothes hanger.

Line Wait - 7 - Longer than it really should be. Kind of like a rail-less esculator if there was a 5 minute wait.

Funness - 0 - Really more of a means of transportation than a ride.


10.
Wicked Twister


Scare Factor - 3 - The thing shakes when you go to the top, kinda freaky/cool.

Funness - 2 - You go fast, it's not over that quickly. It's fun to hang and get that weightless feeling.

Line Wait - 0 - God awful, not incredibly worth the wait.

Sky Hawk


Line Wait - 6 - Very short ride ma…

It Made My Day

FMyLife is an English-language blog that serves as "a recollection of everyday anecdotes likely to happen to anyone". Posts on the site are short, user-submitted stories of unfortunate happenings that begin with "Today" and end with "FML", an abbreviation short for "fuck my life". FMyLife receives more than 1.7 million hits each day.

It Made My Day(http://itmademyday.com) is just like the reverse of this. At first glance, it doesn't seem like it would be entertaining or funny at all, but I found quite a few great ones.

My ten favorite:

10. Yesterday I was playing with our new daughter, and I screamed out “She said her first word!” My wife yelled back “Unless ‘Lady’ is in front of it, ‘gaga’ isn’t a word!” IMMD.

9. I was babysitting last week, and one of the kids asked the other one what “emo” meant. She said, “I think it means stupid.” IMMD.

8. I was listening to my college radio station, and they started to play a Kanye song, but then the DJ i…

My top 30 Chappelle Show clips.

Well, it's been awhile. Between all my movies, video games, fantasy sports and summer activities, I haven't created a new one. Basically I'll blame facebook as it zaps most of my free internet roaming time.

What better than to rank one of the best shows of all time. I just rewatched every single episode (not the musical acts, those were bad). The man had a fantastic thing going before he let it all go. I originally wanted to do a top ten but the more I tried removing some of them, the harder it was. You would think 30 clips might seem like a bit given that it was only 2 and a third seasons, but there was lots of clips which didn't make it, and the ones on here deserve it. So without further ado...

Tron gets treated like a white wall street executive while the other gets treated like a black crack head.
