Let alone the San Diego Zoo and Balboa Park, but the USS Midway, Sea World, Belmont Park/Mission Beach/Pacific Beach and other options are...

    The Miscellaneous Thought Thread

    One of the reasons the Mark Twain and the Columbia operate the way they do, aka free floating ships that power and steer on their own, with a guidance system (not rails) is to be licensed to operate through the Coast Guard and not the state. It comes down to regulations and taxes, which are...

    July 18th, Happy 64th to Disneyland, Happy 54th to Great Moments and the Plaza Inn

    Let me tell you about Mr. Lincoln, I was taken to see him so many times in my youth, and yes, not every time was my choice. But back in the mid-late 1960's, the lines were long (you got a free admission coupon as part of your ticket book) and it twisted and you saw some short films and exhibits...

    Neither, it is a protective covering to help minimize the unraveling of the strands in case of a break. Think of it as a Condom, all it does is keep everything inside. So safer in case of a failure.

    Who knows? Why does a race car part go bad? They are very well built and maintained. Sometimes things just break. A Unknown stress, a undetectable flaw in the cable.
