Re: Tacky and Tasteless Titanic Collectibles


Wow, You know I SAW one of those things (the slide) just this week! I was going to mention it, but just never got around to it. It must have been the bigger one because it was just that--seemed as high as the telephone poles.
I pass it on the way to and from work and they have it deflated in the morning but when I go home in the afternoon, there it is--couldn't believe it when I first saw it. I said I just HAVE to tell you all about it. (Hmmm, maybe I should just sneak by and try it out one qafternoon....)

Re: Tacky and Tasteless Titanic Collectibles


It was at the Tet Festival the local Vietnamese give - for some reason these particular slides are very big in oriental countries.

Re: Tacky and Tasteless Titanic Collectibles


So what's it like? How does it work (how do you get up it etc.)? I assume there should be a huge tub of icewater at the bottom that you land in.

Re: Tacky and Tasteless Titanic Collectibles


It's basically just a slide (although there is an attachment to make it a water slide) - and believe it or not, two types of bottoms. Mine had an iceberg on the bottom - I tried to explain to people why that was wrong. (Hint: do not do this to a bunch of Vietnamese standing in line at a Tet [sign in to see URL] don't think half of them spoke English, and the other half were obviously thinking "What's with this broad?" )

Thing was, this was at night, and they had the slide so you slid into a dark area so you didn't see the bottom, with nothing else to really see as it faced the (dark) woods, so it became very real to me...

Re: Tacky and Tasteless Titanic Collectibles


Well, on the other hand, one way of dealing with tragedies such as Titanic, the space shuttles, etc., is humor. I find it quite intriguing that there have been no jokes about the Twin Towers, although I assure you, in 100 years, there will be, it's a way of distancing yourself from the event. "Sick" humor is a very good coping tool, suprisingly. And this slide, like the little skulls with the Titanic berets and the other little things, is a way of doing this. So in a way, this is kind of healthy.

I don't know. I'd keep thinking of those people in the Cameron movie that you saw sliding to their dooms as the ship lifted up--even more graphic than the survivor's descriptions.
But basicly I do [sign in to see URL] I am by far tasteless enough that if the thing was fun I wouldn't care WHAT it looked like.
I'd go on it.
If when you went on it they had it set up so you slid into the dark, I would DEFINITELY have ice water at the [sign in to see URL] there's a surprise!
