money = safety.
Monday. 9.29.08 6:36 pm
No, not the 700b bailout.

Though, if that were the case, the economy would be the safest thing EVER according to this carnie.

So I went to the state fair with my brother and Dave this weekend.

We got on this ride, almost like one of those boats that goes upside down, but you're on a platform that keeps you right-side up. Fun ride. This one, but not ... Middle-East-themed.

So anyway, my brother and I get on it, while the carnie is busy texting his heart out. The harnesses don't lock when you pull them down.

My brother, ever concerned about safety, asks about the harnesses not locking. They have a loop at the bottom that looks like something might hook into them, but it's not clearly obvious.

The carnie, ever concerned about whomever he was texting, replies that the ride cost ONE MILLION DOLLARS (zomg).

My brother, realizing that the carnie is being a douche, asks again about the harnesses not locking, what is ONE MILLION DOLLARS (zomg) supposed to mean in regards to the unlocked harnesses?

(Mind you, I'm not trying to say that my brother was completely innocent, he was being a smidgen of an ass, but not as bad as this carnie.)

So the carnie goes on about how the ride cost ONE MILLION DOLLARS, and how much did his mom's car cost? Of course my brother didn't know, whatever. So carnie (thumbs aflame, by this point, but still not deterred from his precious texting to give a non-asshole-answer) then goes on about how mom's car definitely didn't cost ONE MILLION DOLLARS (how does he know?), but it still has seat belts, right? So OBVIOUSLY the ride is safe.

Now it's my turn to be an ass, I'm annoyed with him not answering the question. Sure, I get it, the ride HAS to have some sort of restraint to be allowed at the fair. If it's not obvious and someone wants to know, a simple explanation is all that's needed. Not ONE MILLION DOLLARS (while texting, because at this point, he STILL was texting). Money doesn't mean safety, I tell him. Shit happens, rockets explode, cars crash, buildings collapse. You can throw all the money in the world at something, doesn't mean it's safe. Of course, I have to start listing all these crazy things, and the carnie says something about rocket scientists, and how I must be one (in a mocking manner, obviously). I reply "Nope! I'm a computer engineer!" with a shit-eating grin, because I am enjoying being an ass. Something happens that I talk to Dave, and the carnie comments on his rocket scientist-ness as well.

The ride starts and the harnesses lock. Alright. My brother and I discuss that while the ride is in motion, this guy is STILL texting (why haven't his thumbs fallen off yet?), and how the recent train crash in CA was supposedly caused by the conductor sending text messages.

So the ride is pretty fun, not as .. droppy as I expected. Still fun, though. The ride eventually finishes and we get off. I forget what my brother says to the carnie after we get off of the ride, but I'm sure it was something fitting for the occasion.

After that, my brother made sure to ask every carnie how scary their ride was... >.<


Maybe he didn't know anything except for how much it cost. :P Still doing a bad job, though.

That's bad.. that guy shouldn't answer a question with a question unless it is some dumb question.

You're brother is a funny there, asking each carnie how scary their ride was.
