  1. Good video, very educational. I never knew somebody could get excited about Ferris wheels, that somebody actually like heights or you could get a VIP version of a Ferris Wheel. My new knowledge for today.

    • Dear Ross, thank you for your insightful remarks and I am so pleased you have learned from this (highly educational) video. Armed with your new knowledge I hope you will soon ride a Ferris wheel near you ;)
