    As a kid, this was my absolute favorite amusement park ride:



    Got on it again at age 20 and puked my guts out. Stayed sick as a dog for hours. Never again.

    Riding the Merry Go Round is out of the question too. These days I'm a huge drag at the fun parks.

    I avoided those like the plague. Too much cat shit. I much preferred asphalt. At least I knew what I was getting, more or less.

    I still have some scars from playgrounds but I remember them very fondly. And my parents would never blame anyone but me every time I got hurt, of course.

    Wish I could still ride them. These days all I can handle are the water rides.... and the baby rides.

    I think that over time your inner ear can change. I have a coworker who got some kind of rare inner-ear infection that made her so dizzy, just sitting in a chair, that she would puke her guts out....

    Thanks Witch!

    Over the years I have been told that black people don't ice skate because they have weak ankles. I then asked how it is they can be so good at track & field, basketball, football and so on. No response was forthcoming.

    Then I was told it is because black people don't live in the clients where people ice skate - they are mostly in the south. Not buying that bullshit either. There are plenty of blacks living here in the north.

    I have noticed that not so many black people ski. Of course some do, but ski mountains mostly seem to be filled with whites and asians.

    I don't know how to get this chart in here other than post the link. It shows the US black population by state. I can't believe there are only 2,128 black people living in Montana.

    There is African American speed skating champion Shani Davis.

    The last time I took my daughter ice skating (a labor in love if ever there was one, because I stink at it), there was an African American guy there who was just amazing. Blazingly fast, great footwork and agile.

    That's not a surprising number. You'd also have to assume that those numbers are from the previous census, which was 11 years ago. I doubt statistics from the most recent census are available yet.
