People playing chess on roller coasters

ChessCoaster quote [Fans of the xkcd webcomic have taken up the challenge laid out in one of the strips and are riding roller-coasters with glued-together chess-sets. One of my all-time fave strips from xkcd is Chess Photo. The gag is that a prankster is gluing down his chess-pieces so that he can get on a roller-coaster, sit in the front seat, and be photographed deep in concentration over a gnarly chess-problem while behind him the rest of the coaster's riders go berserk].

  1. Oh, that's genius! Sadly, I don't think any of the theme parks in New Zealand do souvenir photos on their rides or I'd try that. :)
