Remembering Action Park

If you grew up in NJ in the 80's and 90's Action park was a big part of your summers. I can remember all of these rides in the video. I especially remember seeing the loop slide right when you walked in but it was never open. In the beginning of the video you see people riding it! (and actually surviving!) Every summer we would hear about the severe injuries and deaths that happened at the park but we kept going. I actually almost drown in the wave pool once, and remember crashing into the wall on the huge water slide run and getting hurt. I can remember all the bruises and cuts people got from the alpine slide too. And remember how freezing cold the water was on the Tarzan swing! But my best memory of action park was it was where tammy (my wife) and I had our first date. This video brings back a ton of memories.

Noah the Movie

For some reason (one that I now cannot remember) I went with my wife to see the movie Noah last week.  While there was a character named Noah and an ark not much else lined up with the Bible.  it looked like the director just stole ideas from other movies.  I left with a lot of questions like:

1. Why are the Nephilim in Genesis 6 huge rock monsters? They look and sound like Optimus Prime from transformers. 

2. Melthuselah is a Wizard? but nowhere as cool as Gandalf from LOTR

3. A Stowaway on the ark?

4. Noah wanted the human race to die off so innocent animals could live in peace?

sad that they did not stick to the biblical story that would have been more compelling than making up all this other Hollywood movie stuff.
