At some point with more experience and awareness of how the world works -- or at least knowledge of the effects of gravity -- adults might become more fearful of certain adventuresome activities that children more daringly take on. Some amusement park rides, for example, take riders at jaw-dropping speeds upside down with only a latch keeping them safely strapped in.
A video posted last summer on YouTube of a father on one such ride with his daughter, which has started to go viral on the Web more recently, showcases just this dichotomy.
Words can't really describe some of the sounds the father makes during the ride, which the YouTube uploader describes as the "Screaming Pigeon" at Dollywood in Pigeon Forge, Tenn. At one point dad screams "Never again Grace Elizabeth!"
Right when dad starts to raise his hands in joy that the ride is slowing down, he finds out it goes for another round. With a roll of his eyes, he graciously says "I'll do it again with you, honey." He does ask a park employee to confirm that doesn't get any more intense than what he just experienced though.
Although you may think you only need to watch the first half of the video if the ride just repeats itself, it is still worth watching all the way through. The dad's reaction during the second round is just as priceless and toward the end one can assume from the look on his face that dad may not be feeling too hot.
Watch the more than three minutes of amusement ride torture for yourself (Warning: Some strong language):
One recent comment on the video says this dad deserves a father of the year award. Do you agree?
