    Another thing is, why pay to drive around in a circle. I do that almost every day to and from work.

    Uh, wait a minute. Isn't the point of bumper cars is to bump into the other person? Hello? Is something missing here?

    Well, I guess it's time for that rental car.

    Apparently the point is to not get hit by people that are not allowed to hit you.

    ...

    ...

    What the fuck?

    No, it's to avoid bumping. At least the original intent was to dodge thus the name Dodgems.

    Americans made them bumper cars cause we love muddin, racing, crashing in ta thangs and generally anythang for a right good hoot an a holla.

    To dodge something, there first must be something that is trying to hit you.

    Despite seeing where this is coming from, I think it's overreacting. A simple disclaimer, something along the lines of "by participating in bumpercars you waive your right to sue for injuries sustained" would have been sufficient, no?

    Or where I live, you can be dodging something that's too stupid to intelligently avoid you on their own.

    ... taking that into account, all we need to do is dumb down the world. That way, bumper cars can be fun again. *phones Mojo Jojo*

    Nope. I think what they did was right. I got bumped so hard once that I fell out of the car and another bumper car ran over me causing great injury and somehow a pole got loose and electrocuted me to death. I want to sue but , well you know, I'm dead.
