18. Given the number of other injuries at the park

8. Seventeen stories high??

That's absolutely preposterous

The slide's name is Verrückt, which is German for "crazy"-- how very appropriate

What a sad story

11. Who was speaking of the poor kid? We're talking about a ride called Verrückt - 'Crazy' in German...

and a Republican Senator who by being a Republican has a stand on Torte Reform and Regulation that is contrary to lot of peoples' interests. I'm interested in the rest of the story.
