RE: Carnival
We don't have carnivals here, we have gypsie fairs and the occasional circus which I guess are the same thing.
So fuck no.
Gypsies are fucking crazy, they're all hippy fruitcakes that make things out of toenails and don't pay taxes. I wouldn't trust them that those bone carvings were not cat bone and so I sure as fucking Christ wouldn't trust them to fling me 100 feet into the air. And regarding the circus, if I wanted to watch a depressed as fuck elephant who's obviously over this shit I'd go to the zoo. At least the zoo has red pandas. And penguins. I like penguins.
Those things all contain things I detest. People, shitty shitty people, and spending money on wasteful things like the chance to win some human back hair hand weaved scarf if you can knock over the glued cups with a fucking ping pong ball.

RE: Carnival
The last time we went to a fair (in rural Maine while on vacation), my husband took our daughter down the giant slide. He cut his leg on the way down and ended up with an infection. He needed antibiotics.

Grosssssssssss

Is a Dodgem like a bumper car? I love those! I also like the go-carts that race around the track.
Yeah we call them bumper cars, was trying to be more "broad" so the american users would understand. I was always told they are called Dodge'ems in the states?

Anyway, I don't mind those. They are one of the few things that don't make me puke these days Laugh out load

But see, Muffs, that's what's so fun about carnivals. They're completely silly and inconsequential. It's all nonsense.

I'm still laughing about the toenail comment. Laugh out load

RE: Carnival
The Oktoberfest is basically a huge carnival with lots of rides and performances and vendors selling food and trinkets - and the bigger breweries put up huge tents where you can drink beer and eat.

When I was a kid, the family would go there. The parents would go sit in the beer tent and us kids were given spending money and went off to roam. My favorites were the roller coasters, but there were also rides that went over the top turning you upside down and all kinds of things. There was never enough time or money to do all of them, and the parents would be sitting in that tent all afternoon, drinking and singing. Smile

Nowadays kids don't get to roam anymore, too many people and tourists and pocket thieves and whatnot. But, boy, we sure enjoyed the freedom of it all. It was exhilarating!

RE: Carnival
I spent a summer working at an amusement park as a teenager. That sucked the magic out of amusement parks for me, but I still love me a carnival. Sleazier the better. I don't usually do the rides, but I like the atmosphere, the people trying to get me to play carny games, the smells of popcorn and cotton candy and meat-on-a-stick, the lights.

I like rollercoasters but not the ones that go upside down. One of my first experiences on a rollercoaster was on an old one where I lost a chunk of skin on my calf as we went down the first big hill (as the padded seat separated and then crunched down on the metal seat base, my leg in between).

My favorite ride is the one where it rotates and the floor drops out from underneath your feet.

And while they aren't exciting rides, I love merry-go-rounds because they're full of interesting and often beautiful creations.
