oh the possibilities

When I was a kid, my friends and I would go to Skateland every Saturday. One of our favorite things to do when we were there was to order a "suicide" from the snack bar. I don't know who named it or why that, but it was a combination of equal parts of every softdrink on the fountain. Now they normally had a Cola, a Lemon Lime, A Root Beer, Dr. Pepper and an orange drink. It was all the rage with the kids. I think the snack bar workers hated making them though.

When I discovered that Coke testing 100-flavor soda fountains I wondered what that "suicide" would taste like, and how hard it would be to make one!

When I worked at the Dairy Queen, one squirt of every flavor of slushy was known as a suicide.

I knew I was right about you and skating rinks. So I'm likely right about you wearing parachute pants, feathered hair do, and a Members Only jacket. You probely requsted Journey's "Faithfully" for the moonlight skate.

We had a Skateland where I grew up. I about crapped when I saw the name on your post.

BTW Wil, there's nothing wrong with parachute pants!
