Revisiting The Most Insane Amusement Park Ever

A new documentary revisits Action Park, a now-closed amusement park that featured ridiculous attractions like a looping water slide. How in God’s name would you get out of that thing if you didn’t make it all the way around?

Here's a fun-sounding description of the park from its Wikipedia page:

The park's popularity went hand-in-hand with a reputation for poorly designed, unsafe rides; underaged, undertrained, and often under-the-influence staff; intoxicated, unprepared visitors; and a consequently poor safety record. At least six people are known to have died as a result of mishaps on rides at the park.

Here's how our own Jason English recalled his summers at Action Park back in 2007.


Speaking of Dangerous

These children's toys are troubling at best, deadly at worst. They sort of remind me of this old sketch.


Remember That Scene Where...

Here are the most overplayed moments from some of your favorite TV shows of all time.


Putting the High In High School

Stop me if you’ve heard this one. A high school teacher and a few students create their own drug empire. It actually happened back in the '60s with a group of friends and a Spanish teacher.


The Man Behind the Man

You probably know Jonathan Goldsmith better by his other name, The Most Interesting Man In the World, and it turns out he just might be.


Every Tech Commercial Ever

College Humor perfectly captures the awkward and overused conventions from every technical product TV commercial.


Keep Your Eyes On Your Paper

Because you have no other option.
