When gravity becomes the bad news…
We have this big slideshow from the famous Oktoberfest, the self-described world’s biggest beer festival. About half the photos show folks grabbing huge honking pitchers of beer, while the other half show people climbing onto roller coasters, ferris wheels and other stomach-churning rides, high up over the crowds.
Can anybody figure out what might go wrong here, and why being on the evening cleanup crew is probably a bad career choice?
