Monsoon

A place to be entertained. Videos, jokes, games, and more.
Forum rules
At the old Disney Hyperion Studio, the screening room where animators would show animated scenes to Walt for his approval was small, with no ventilation or AC. Not only was it hot, but the animators were nervously awaiting Walt's reaction to their work. Thus, the room became known as the Sweatbox. Even after the Studio moved to Burbank and elegant screening rooms were offered to the staff, the moniker remained.

Now SGT has a sweatbox of our own. This is the place to find and post all entertaining topics such as video links, jokes, games, and the like. A general rule of thumb is that if the thread is meant to be informative (interesting news stories for example), or a topic for discussion (like setting up a park meet) then it should go in the Break Room, but if the intent is to entertain the masses then it's home is The Sweatbox. I'm sure there will be grey areas at times, so if you have doubt as to where a new thread should go, just use your best judgement and the SGT Staff will be glad to move it later if you guessed wrong.

I recognize some of these scenes. The sad part is I've lived here for just shy of 50yrs and have never been to the Grand Canyon. :cry:
Of course if you can say 'Haboob' and not giggle,,you might be from Arizona. :wink:

That is absolutely stunning. So beautiful, and the music is perfect.

Don't worry, I lived in Colorado for 11 years without going up Pike's Peak. And went skiing maybe 3 or 4 times.

Never lived in Colorado, but have been to the top of Pike's Peak. I have lived in Utah my whole life, with the exception of 2 years in Brasil, and I've never been skiing. I don't even have a desire to ski. Give me sun and golf, and Disney, over stupid snow.

I've lived in California most of my life, and I don't surf.

Great find !!
I spent three hours stopped on US 93 headed down to Vegas because of one a few years ago.
Among other damage, it actually washed out part of an Interstate.
I saw it way off to my east while I was traveling south and thought nothing about it until traffic stopped dead.
It had already gone through and did it's damage.
There was no Go Around and we just waited until the 93 got cleared.

I've always noticed that you don't get around to visiting the attractions in your home town/state. I've usually only seen the local attractions when people come to visit and I look for things to do with them.

This, I can never understand when people tell me they're visiting Salt Lake City because I can't think of anything to do here.

Take a muni bus up to the slopes?
