incident

Here’s a thing that happened to one of my friends. I was there.

Basically, we were walking down the sidewalk, talking about something meaningless. I think it had to do with a movie. Then this bus screeches up, stops next to us, and a bunch of people with “Down with Cis” shirts climbed out and started beating him up. I was punched and kicked a bit too, but I managed to avoid brutalization by going for their faces. After figuring out what’s happening, I started attacking them back, getting them off of him. He was quite injured but I called 911 and he made a full recovery at the hospital. I was fine, with only a cut on my arm that they patched up.

150818 BigHit Entertainment Issued Statement 

안녕하세요. 빅히트 엔터테인먼트입니다.

오늘 일본 오사카에서 개최된 방탄소년단의 ‘재팬 오피셜 팬미팅 언더커버 미션’ 도중 멤버 지민군이 무대 아래로 떨어지는 사고가 발생했습니다.

인근의 스미토모 병원으로 이동하여 의료진의 면밀한 진단을 받은 결과,게임 도중 숨을 갑자기 오래 참으면서 부교감신경이 우선시 되었고, 이로 인해 밸런스가 무너져 혈압이 일시적으로 내려가 정신을 잃어 무대 아래로 떨어지게 된 것이라고 합니다.

부상은 가벼운 타박상으로 건강에는 문제가 없는 것으로 판명되었고 현재 지민군은 호텔에서 휴식을 취하고 있습니다.

공연을 관람하고 계셨던 관객 여러분들을 비롯해 팬 여러분들께 심려를 끼쳐드려 진심으로 죄송하단 말씀 전해 드립니다.

앞으로 빅히트 엔터테인먼트는 지민 군과 방탄소년단의 건강과 안전에 각별한 주의를 기울일 것을 약속 드립니다.

다시 한 번 심려를 끼쳐 드려 죄송합니다.

Hello, this is BigHit Entertainment. 

An accident took place at the “Japan Official Fanmeeting Undercover Mission” revolving member Park JImin. He fell under the stage during the Fanmeeting, which was held in Osaka, Japan. 

We transported to the nearest Sumitomo hospital and got a basic routine checkup. The results showed that during the game Jimin was holding his breath too long, cutting off his circulation briefly. This led to the loss of balance and the rapid decrease of blood pressure. The staff stated that this is the main cause for the fall. 

Jimin has light bruising and has no other problems concerning his physical health and was released shortly after the check up. He is currently in the hotel right now, resting. 

For the fans who were anticipating the concert, we sincerely apologize for any inconveniences caused.

From now on, BigHit Entertainment promises to take extra precautions regarding Jimin and the other BTS members’ health, and to make it our priority. 

Sorry once again.

Here’s a thing that happened to one of my friends. I was there.

Basically, we were walking down the sidewalk, talking about something meaningful. I think it had to do with a meme. Then this bus screeches up, stops next to us, and a bunch of frogs with “Down with Feels” shirts climbed out and starts beating him up. I was punched and kicked a bit too, but I managed to avoid brutalizations by going for their smug faces. After figuring what’s happening, I started getting them back, getting them off of him. He was quite injured, but I called 911 and he made a full recovery at the hospital. I was fine, with only a cut on my arm they patched up.

My friend is feel guy, and this is the face of Feelphobia.

I feel I need to say this;

The accident that happened at Alton Towers yesterday, looking at all the mechanics behind rollercoasters are nothing to do with human error, it is technically impossible for any human error to be involved in it. The only way it was human error was by allowing people on the train and that is that, the rest, going by the mechanical science of rollercoasters is literally mechanical error. 

This was something an actual engineer posted on Alton Towers facebook page yesterday explaining the mechanics behind rollercoasters, please give it a read since it may educate a lot of people on rollercoasters and how they work:

“Just to clear something up as there have been roughly a thousand misunderstanding’s of how roller coasters actually work, and what went wrong.

Firstly we need to clear up that trains are not manually released by staff when they feel like, every roller coaster is controlled by a computer system that controls every action that happens, meaning that unless the ride’s computer thinks that it’s safe, it is impossible to release a train out of the station. Meaning that I could train a five year old how to operate a modern day attraction, like The Smiler, and he/she could do so safely with minimal knowledge

Next, I will define a ‘block’, a block is a piece of track that is designed to be independently completed from start to finish, and have a means of safely stopping a train at both the entry and exit of the block. In train logic, it is absolutely imperative that no more than one train occupies the same block at any time! This has been a fundament of roller coaster design since inception, and is the product of the well studied 'Absolute Block Signalling System’ designed in the early 19th century.

The aforementioned computer is therefore responsible for controlling all of the block sections on the ride, and at no point should a train be allowed to enter a block if another train has not yet cleared it, regardless of the fitness of the ride.

Now that we understand the basic concept of how trains are allowed to travel around a track, let’s get onto my theory of what went wrong, which are mainly based off of assumptions, which are based of my personal knowledge and experience.

The empty train most probably had an error message when it arrived into the station from its previous run, indicating something wrong with the train itself, the standard practice is to send the train around again, as most of the time it’s an erroneous flag from a vibration or force sensor, which are calibrated have exceptionally low headroom for error. So the empty train was sent out to see if there was actually a problem, and if the message had’ve been persistent the train would’ve been removed. Unfortunately, for one reason or another the train failed to complete a full circuit, either due to an actual fault, as indicated by the sensor, or due to lack of momentum; as the train was empty. Either way the train cleared the first block; between the station and lift hill 1, cleared the lift hill, and entered the second block; between lift hill 1, and lift hill 2.

Now at the point the empty train cleared the lift hill, and entered block section 2, the ride’s computer would’ve indicated to the operator that it is safe for the next train to depart. Seeing that there is no problem with this train, the operator proceeds as normal, dispatching the second train.

After this, what should’ve happened is that the computer should’ve indicated that for some reason train 1 is taking longer than usual to complete the second block, and then it would’ve realised very quickly that the train had stalled mid block.

At this point, the second train should’ve come to a halt on the lift hill, and not, for any reason have entered block 2. This didn’t happen.

Instead, for some reason that I’m sure will be found, train 2 entered the block as normal, and we’re all here now!

This logically is impossible, however one or more system must’ve failed, resulting in the accident, at no point is Alton Towers responsible for this, nor are any of the operating staff or engineers. The blame lies solely with Gerslauer GmbH, for their failure to properly test their software and electronics. My only major fear is how many other Gestlauer attractions have the same fault, which are just waiting for this to happen again!

My heart goes out to all of those involved, and I hope that you all get over this horrible freak accident with haste! Furthermore a big well done needs to go out to the Emergency Services, Alton Towers, Merlin, and all of the operations staff involved for having such a fantastic, efficient and relaxed response to this incident, I am very proud to have been a part of the magic!

The Smiler will not close, it may be closed for an indefinite period for the meantime, but it will reopen either later this season, or at the start of the next season. Sorry to those planning a trip to alton, but I wouldn’t expect the smiler to be open for at least a month.

Lastly, do not fret, or become instantly terrified of roller coasters just because of this, though it won’t help, you are 18 times more likely to be killed during a dance party than you are to be injured whilst enjoying a theme park attraction, more people die on the way to theme parks every year than have ever been killed in the entirety of the worlds theme parks, and lastly the chances of it happening twice are practically impossible, making The Smiler the safest roller coaster in the world!

So don’t batten down the hatches, lock away your children, and cancel your tips. Instead #SMILEALWAYS”

So please, for the love of god, do not blame the staff for this accident since they were powerless to do anything instances before the crash happened and don’t blame it too much on human error.

Please don’t let this accident stop you from going on any coasters in the future, they are still the safest things to ride in the world and besides you’d all miss the thrill too much anyway.

Finally, please don’t let this affect your judgement on Alton Towers, this is the first time since the park opened that an accident like this has happened. The FIRST ever time since the 1950′s [i think that’s roughly when it opened] this has happened, every coaster at the park will always have its technical difficulties, this was just one difficulty that led to an accident. The park is still the safest park in the world and those who are injured luckily aren’t dead and even one of them are now out of hospital which brings some light to the situation.

That is all, apologies for the long post.

“ Frozen—what if ”
Basically I had a dream like this, yesterday…
What if after the events of the movie Anna is reversed back in time…she wakes up in the morning of the coronation day…so she decides to have some fun, and she lets things happen… When she meets her future fiancée, she has even more fun :-D especially when they arrive at the trolls… ( I love my dreams…)
He’s confused beyond belief .

One day Bieber is going to fuck with the wrong person. Today it was Orlando Bloom, tomorrow I’m hoping for Dwayne Johnson.
