Haha, someone needs to buy it and convert it into a theme restaurant.
I'll take three.

Maybe I could buy one if I won the lottery...

Which lottery pays out that much?

L
I don't know, I was just joking. :-P
lemonie (author)  Shadowman397 years ago
One of them might. I do remember a news article some years ago - the winners said (on camera) "we just dumped" -meaning they shat themselves....

L
If I won all of that money I would spend it on something more important. Like Knex. :-)
lemonie (author)  Shadowman397 years ago
Yes you could build a full-size K'NEX space shuttle!

L
That would take years to construct. I wonder if a life-size Knex roller coaster would work.
 I dunno if the connections could handle it. Maybe a really tame one, but there's a reason wood coasters are so shaky...
