OMG.   Where do I start?

You're in RRC land here.  

CFB rules don't apply.

I don't care who copies who, and who pastes who.

We know who is talking.  

Copying the thread from CFB (Coaster ***ing Buzz),

Ha Ha.

We don't care.

My name isn't Jeff, and you can't ban me.  

Here, I'll prove it to you.

The ***ing Chinesse suck.  They captured amerikens and held them
hostange.  ***ing Chinks.  *** you, Don't come to Amerika.  

Japan sucks for trying to take every coaster height record.   *** you
Japan.  Steal dradon is dead and you have nothing else to challenge
TTD.  Fuk you Japan.   You have an inferiotly complex with your***s.
America is bigger.  You can't get over that.     We RULE.   Fuk you
Japan.  

Now, try to say this on CFB (Coaster ***ING Buzz) and you will be
banned.  But *** the rest of the world.  They can all suck my***.  

World, you are not welcome here.   Go away.  ***ing stay home.  

Ameriken companies, Stop dealing with Japan, China, and other
countries over seas.   They hate us.   Stop it.  

*** you world.

Jack Rabbit  (KW), The Beast (PKI)

Then again, they both use magnetic assisted brakes. Also, anything with
sled brakes tends to stop in a rather smooth motion.

Do you ever get tired of being wrong?  It must be that
humidity.

----------------------

I've actually seen it quite a few times on Riddler's Revenge at SFMM.  The
whole time you're standing in line you can see and hear the final "impact"
from the brake run.  A lot of people will put at least one foot up on the
flat part of the car in front of them before hitting the brakes, that way
their whole body (since it's a stand up coaster) isn't thrown into the
shoulder restraints.

Talk about hard brakes... try California Screamin' at DCA if you stop in the
'first block' of the final brake run, or e-stop on the mid course brakes
after the loop (and turn-around)... feels like (and sounds like!) the train
is just slammed to a stop.  I understand e-stopping being hard or fast, but
the final brakes are the same way when they run all of the trains.

Anyone ever stop coming out of the last tunnel on Magnum, that one is
harsh.

Another one that comes to mind is the first set of brakes on Apollo if
the next train hasn't left the station. It is almost entertaining to
watch from the entrance.
