Back to 1991: The Ride

What? "Back to the Future: The Ride" is closing forever?? Well, I suppose it was inevitable, considering the ride is over 15 years old and the new generation of audience is totally out of touch with the movie. Sad am I, but I too understand business is business. They gotta keep up with modern demands. No more will we be able to chase Biff through time in a simulated Delorean. The ride always gave me a headache too, but the way I figured it actual time travel would probably have had much worse side-effects...

So my sister and I took pictures in front of the ride this past weekend one last time. Rumors are it'll be replaced by a Simpsons ride, which if true sounds promising. On a side note...the Mummy ride is grreat! On the subject of Back to the Future closing, I think the Mummy said it best when he constantly and violently screamed during the ride, "Death is only the BEGINNING!!!!"

Canada is a Delicious Country

Well to be more specific the food is delicious in Vancouver, where a giant Chinese population has produced a myriad of great restaurants. This alien-like creature in the photo is an Alaskan King Crab, picked from the pollutant-free waters of Alaska for consumption only a few weeks out of the year. I imagine this creature to be quite the bully in it's natural habitat, although that's just me shallowly judging a book by it's enormously spiny cover.

Beautiful landscape, the Pacific Northwest is!
