Once while waiting for my people to ride a roller coaster I figured out that the ride called the Drop Zone only lasted 6 seconds. From the time it started to when it finished was only 6 seconds.. I figured I could do just about anything for 6 seconds. Nobody believed me when I said "O.K. lets go on the Drop Zone". They thought I was kidding. The roller coaster riding brave people were afraid of the Drop Zone .There wasn't much of a line and so we got on. When I started up I began saying 100,000, 200,000 etc. At 400,000 I was about to swoon when I reminded myself I could last another 2 seconds. After the fright of the ride and realizing it took longer to get strapped into the seat than the ride, I decided the grocery line was a better deal. I don't have to leave the ground and it doesn't takes as long as the amusement park ride.
I do have and 81 year old friend who I go to the amusement park with. He rides the roller coasters with my kids and I sit and watch people.
