Random musings on my trip to Florida-
The Express tickets for theme parks are criminally cool. I never had to wait over five minutes to get on a ride. It allowed me to do everything I wanted in one day.
At Universal's Islands of Adventure I was shocked to see Captain America alive. I was sure I'd heard he'd recently taken a bullet. Also - check out the bods on Wolverine and Storm. They didn't look like they'd been fighting anything, least of all calories. Meow!
I used to read the "Blondie" comic strip and as I recall the Dagwood looked more like the sign outside the restaurant...
...than the actual sandwich.
Stupid shark. I went on the ride twice and he attacked the boat both times.
Echoes of 911 always seem to come up. We were told this is the reason we couldn't get any closer to the shuttle Discovery than this.
No, Dean, you can't drive the Shuttle Transportation Vehicle and no, it doesn't do a "wheelie."
The Reflective Wall for Fallen Astronauts is one of the most beautiful memorials I think I've ever seen.
We were able to shoot a manned Apollo rocket around the moon without Microsoft Windows. Just saying...
Workers as the Kennedy Space Center don't appreciate the joke where you ask to see Major Nelson's office so you can check the pencil-holder for Jeannie.
It's just a little sad that the Space Center has such a "history museum" vibe to it. They show the video of John Kennedy proclaiming we were going to the moon and it's hard not to get choked up.
Then you realize that our greatest achievement was over 30 years ago with the moon landings. It's sort of like Lewis and Clark came out the Northwest, proclaimed it terrific, then nobody followed or built on their accomplishments. We don't seem to want to do things anymore because, as Kennedy said, "they're hard."
