A Point Horror Waiting To Happen

Posted by gauloises1 on October 12, 2009

Who here remembers Point Horror? The Lifeguard taught me that a great white shark can swim in six inches of water (OK, feet, but it’s a misunderstanding that has stayed with me for life). One of them, possibly Call Waiting, taught me that your boyfriend can phone you even if he’s dead (or alternatively the more feminist lesson that death is no excuse for not phoning). And The Funfair taught me that all it takes is one maniac with a pole and a good sense of timing to derail a roller-coaster and kill you and everyone you love. This is why I don’t swim in the ocean or go to funfairs.

Anyway, apparently they don’t have Point Horror in Italy or Belgium.

Also, the tournament website seems to think that Linz is an European City of Culture this year. This is really the most cultural thing they could come up with?
