The origins of the roller coaster probably date back to Russia in the 1400s, where ice sledding was a popular winter activity. It became so popular that people in relatively flat areas constructed their own hills out of snow and ice.

The tops of these artificial hills were reached by way of elevated wood towers with stairways from the ground. For a small charge, people could climb the stairway and take a quick, exciting ride down the hill on a sled. (Pics)

What a classy snack to eat after a roller coaster ride!

This Land of Love will not be seen or enjoyed.

China’s first sex theme park, aimed at improving both the sex education and the sex life of its visitors, has been torn down before it even opened. The owners were “interested only in profiting from sensationalism,” one official said.

The park was set to offer workshops on sex technique and safe-sex methods. But the plans left Chongqing officials red-faced. The officials called the planned park “vulgar, ill-minded and misleading”.
