Why do people just post a link and nothing else? It is one of the laziest most uninformative things you can do on a discussion thread. I hate it and it really annoys me when people do this.

Like, is it really too much to ask for someone to type even ONE SENTENCE describing why they posted that link so the rest of us know why we should click on it?

For example:

Nagahshima Spaland has announced the opening date of the new coaster! You may want to use Google Translate to translate this page: http://www.nagashimaresort.jp/spaland/info/hakugei.html

That took my EIGHTEEN SECONDS to write, and it gives the reader a much better idea of why you just lazily posted a link and by adding the sentence more people may click on it and then further discuss what they just read.

Or, WAIT! Better yet! How about a description AND a screen shot!!!! You know, *ACTUALLY CONTRIBUTING* something to the discussion at hand!

For example:

Nagahshima Spaland has announced the opening date of the new coaster! You may want to use Google Translate to translate this page: http://www.nagashimaresort.jp/spaland/info/hakugei.html

Look, guys, I gotta be honest, that took me almost TWO MINUTES to do. I know that's a lot of time and effort for our Idiocracy world, but c'mon? Is it really too much to ask of some of you to spend TWO MINUTES to be able to properly communicate something rather than just posting a link like you're some sort of moronic drone who don't have the intelligence to function any more than doing copy/paste? I can't be the only one who feels this way, right? RIGHT?!?!?

/end rant.

Sorry, I was trying to be minimalist. Next time I will add a description.

"The park's page includes photos and video advertising Hakugei's opening next week. I especially liked the drone footage in the video, it includes perspectives of the ride that are different from the photos taken from the ferris wheel."

Which came first the turtle or the donkey?

I don't know if this was mentioned / if it was linked to from the official page listed above, but this official park video is awesome. The drone footage starting at the 2:00 mark is INSANE. It's a few days old so I apologize if it's buried within one of the links.



Edit: oh, now I see, the video on the page linked above is a playlist not an individual video. This one definitely had the craziest shots. It doesn't look real.

WOW, that video is unreal. Most videos never do a ride justice, but this one perfectly did. The opening shot was jaw-dropping.

Damn that's a beautiful looking coaster. I'm glad they painted everything but the track white.
