Binge and purge: easier than ever!
As the song says, kicks just keep getting harder to find. The amusement park industry is having its big convention, and the hot new thrill seems to be dining 165 feet above the ground, at a table suspended by a crane.
Yeah, that’s pretty much what I wondered, too. Who cares? It’s not like you can’t go to the Rainbow Room if you want to dine high up. Heck, you could even sneak a sausage pizza aboard a gyrocopter. It doesn’t take Isaac Newton to guess what’s going to happen when you eat raw oysters and some linguini, washed down by a few beers, and then sit there swinging back and forth, back and forth…
The promoters of this suspended table thing say it’s available for business meetings, too. We’ve seen those “meetings” in James Bond movies. “Uh, sorry Mr. Blofeld, I don’t want to join your evil scheme, so I guess I’ll just be goin’ home now…”
