Remember that time 10 years ago when you and your best friend visited an amusement and you had your picture taken just as the roller coaster you were on began its "death-defying" descent? And remember when you bought it afterwards and laughed so hard, not only your faces but the faces of the random people who were crowded in the log-shaped cart behind you?
Now just imagine if that memorable picture also featured someone flashing? Wouldn't it be even funnier?
Apparently, folk used to flash these roller-coaster ride cameras pretty frequently. So frequently that Disneyland used to employ a "ride photo moderator" to weed out the flashers and anyone else doing anything lewd. That way, when passengers queued up at the photo purchase booth near the ride's exit, they wouldn't be subjected to seeing these scandalous photos.
Ah yes, "used to" is the key word here a The OC Register reports that Disneyland has removed the ride photo moderator position because "actual inappropriate behaviors by guests are rare." However, a warning: photos will still be monitored lest you think this is now an opening to resume your ride flashing behavior.

The Jaunted Flickr pool is now 1,938 photos and growing, but we know we can get even more excellent travel photos up there. As you know we use photos from the pool in our posts, and Jaunted Field Trip photos are always included in the pool--both linking back to the photographers stream.
Currently, we are looking forward to throwing even more linkage toward talented photographers from around the world.
Just go here and join our group. Then, on any photos you want to send in, click "Send to group" in the toolbar underneath the title. Select "Jaunted" and you will be diving in with the grace of Greg Louganis.
We want you to get active at getting your excellent travel photos in here and help them get the attention they so deserve. Oh, and if any Jaunted readers are going on cool field trips, don't be shy, let us know. Who knows, you may be able to become a Jaunted correspondent for your trip--if you can say the alphabet backwards and pat your head while rubbing your belly.
We're suckers for photographs of animals. Especially giraffes! They have blue-black tongues, something we're ashamed to admit we learned from an episode of Salute Your Shorts. Nickelodeon is a far better filter for facts than CNN, we find.
Anyway, for our cool animal and nature photo fix, we recommend Kalabrid's photos of Kenya over on Flickr. She's staying there for a few months and already has shots of zebras, giraffes, and local flora. What, no lions yet?
