    Who here is "celebrating it as some great achievement?"

    Coronavirus Crisis

    Please stop putting words in my mouth and making assumptions about my beliefs. Both are getting tiresome. I never called anyone "garbage." I'm not afraid of your opinions, whatever that means. You know nothing of personal beliefs other than the fact that I don't want unsupported assertions on...

    I would argue that the WMD threat is different not less impossible. Chemical weapons have been used by a variety of actors since WWI. Biological weapons have arguably been used throughout history. Nuclear weapons use has been a threat since WWII. The likely actors and motivations have changed...

    Maybe is is just cheaper packaging?

    Coronavirus Crisis

    As someone who has to go into the office every day and wear a mask, I have had an apparently unusual reaction. Like everything else, I have gotten used to COVID protocols, including mask wearing. I tend not to notice it, when I am at my desk on my computer. Honestly, I’ve been more distracted...

    Coronavirus Crisis

    You know what is puzzling me? It isn‘t the apparent selfishness of those who place their own whims over the good of society. Nor is it the rampant anti-intellectualism endemic to science denial. Those things have infected our country for a while. What I don’t understand is where this new surge...

    There is a long discussion about the original Le Scoot course in its thread.

    COVID-19’s Impacts on BGW

    In a pandemic the assessment isn't just about the risk to you personally. It is about the threat of overwhelming spread and the impact on our healthcare and financial infrastructure. You as an individual may be happy to get COVID, because you believe you will survive, but as a group the fast and...

    COVID-19’s Impacts on BGW

    So... there was no sarcastic joke? Or is the weird claim that you have evoked hatred here somehow the sarcastic joke? I am honestly very confused at this point.

    Pardon? What was meant to be a sarcastic joke?

    COVID-19’s Impacts on BGW

    Your apparent unwillingness to acknowledge that scientists’ understanding of the pandemic has grown, allowing society to respond is a more targeted and sophisticated way than in the initial months is unfortunate, but essentially your problem. You attacks, however, against a mysterious group of...

    COVID-19’s Impacts on BGW

    Ok. But that isn‘t the snark I was responding to. You said, ”I just think its funny that some people are changing their tune about ’essential businesses' once it hurts their bank account.” I was pointing out that the rules changed in response to new knowledge, not some purely cynical impulse.

    COVID-19’s Impacts on BGW

    My understanding is that rules about which businesses could be open and under which constraints have changed because we have learned more about the virus.

    KD vs. BGW

    I think it is worth observing that while there are some tourists year-round in the area, Colonial Williamsburg has reduced operations in January and February. I am not disagreeing with what has been said, but I think we need to keep BGW's winter events in the proper context.

    What Will Be the Next Coaster Removed From BGW?

    There was a brief discussion about our thoughts on the new trains back during her 40th: https://parkfans.net/threads/loch-ness-monster.1064/post-164633

    What Will Be the Next Coaster Removed From BGW?

    I believe it is a visual symbol of BGW, yes. Not having heard of an iconic coaster from a Mid-Atlantic regional park, when you were living on the opposite coast hardly seems surprising. I, personally, can't think of any single ride that is more representative of BGW, to be honest.

    What Will Be the Next Coaster Removed From BGW?

    In my opinion, super-smooth coasters can end up lacking interesting forces. B&M sometimes slips from swoopy into boring, for example.
