10 Ways Disney Parks Hide Things Right In Front Of You


WILLIAM CUSHING 

 

Ever ridden the Jungle Cruise and wondered how the skippers can control the boat without looking at the wheel? Ever wondered why you never see a Fantasyland cast member outside of Fantasyland? Disney parks attempt to transport you to different worlds, from the Old West to space to Neverland. But obviously, these parks are visited by thousands of people every day and millions every year, so they need massive amounts of infrastructure to keep guests happy and safe every single day.

To accommodate this, they have created a multitude of ways to hide things from the average observer, despite them being right in front of them. You might be steps away from a large air conditioner that powers a whole land but have no idea because of something as simple as a paint job.

10No See-Um Green

Disney hides a massive amount of infrastructure in their parks, but not all of it is easily obscured from view. If possible, Disney likes to cover things with trees or behind other buildings, but that isn’t always feasible. Some things are just too big or need to be in guest areas for safety reasons. To hide things that have to be in front of park guests for whatever reason, Disney uses a special shade of green that makes things (almost) disappear from view.[1]

This color goes by two names, No See-um Green or Go Away Green, and has been in existence since the early days of the Disney parks. They consider this to be one of the blandest colors in existence, and the idea is that the eye will avoid focusing on it compared to other things in the park. Many things, like pipes, backstage buildings, or the entrance to Club 33, are painted this color to de-emphasize them as best as possible.

9A Fake Pirate Ship For Fantasmic!

When Fantasmic! was added to Disneyland in the 1990s, they had to use the existing land to fit in a modern show. This land, New Orleans Square, was built with no intention of holding the crowds, lighting, or other infrastructure necessary for a show like Fantasmic!, so it had to be fit in without ruining the land.

One of the main things they had to add was lights for the show. Fantasmic!happens at night and needs to be seen from a distance, meaning massive lights had to be installed. Most were added along the edge of the water, but some had to be added further back, on the building Pirates of the Caribbean was located in. The solution to that was to hide them in false ship masts.[2]These masts give the illusion that a full ship is located behind the land, but in reality, it just hides some of the lights for Fantasmic! In fact, they even add to the theme of the area by making it look like there is really a port just behind the buildings.

8Forced Perspective

Disney buildings often look massive, but this is not the case. You might look at the towering Matterhorn mountain and think it must be hundreds of feet tall, only to see a bird land on top and look massive compared to the mountain. The Matterhorn is actually only 45 meters (147 ft) tall. In fact, no building in a Disney Park is taller than 61 meters (200 ft) due to FAA regulations that would require a red light to be placed on top of every building that exceeds that height. This would ruin the immersion Disney strives for in their parks, so they make sure in designing new rides that nothing ever reaches that height.

How Disney gets around this is using forced perspective. For example, on Disneyland’s Main Street, every floor on a building beyond the first is built at a smaller scale, so it appears full-sized but actually isn’t.[3] This allows Disney to build mountains like Everest or the Hollywood Tower Hotel without ever passing the red-light height.

7Multi-Sided Buildings

The original Disneyland is so small that it has to be creative with how it uses its space. No area can remain unused for long. One of the main solutions is to use buildings for more than one attraction. Sometimes, this means building up; other times, it means two restaurants sharing a kitchen.

The main example of this is with the Enchanted Tiki Room, the building of which is also used for the Jolly Holiday Bakery, not only a different attraction but in a fully different land.[4] One building is in both the 1920s jungle and a turn-of-the-century American small town. This transition, however, is only seen in a few locations at odd angles.

6Design Choice


When Epcot was being designed, one of the most important projects was the icon of the park, Spaceship Earth. In designing it, a problem was encountered: When it was raining, what would happen to the water? It couldn’t roll off the sides, as people would be soaked every time they went underneath. Imagine trying to seek shelter from the weather, but to get to the dry spot, you have to pass through a mini-waterfall.

To solve this potential problem, an elaborate drainage system was built into the structure, allowing rain to drain into the nearby World Showcase Lagoon.[5] This keeps the water from soaking people along the sides of the sphere every time it sprinkles and allows for guests to take shelter under the building during a storm.

5Berms

Disneyland, Magic Kingdom, and most of the other castle-style Disney parks around the world feature a berm that surrounds the entirety of the park. This berm keeps you from being able to see the world around the park and helps to immerse you in it.

Disney parks transport you to different worlds, and they don’t want that experience interrupted by the outside world. No seeing McDonald’s from Tomorrowland or Panera Bread from Fantasyland. In most parks, the berm is where the railroad sits, forming the boundary between the park and the outside world.[6]

4Water

Ever notice how much water there is in Disney parks? Water is one of the main ways for Disney to hide large things in their parks. Most waterways in the park are less than 3 meters (10 ft) deep, but Disney wants the illusion that they are deeper. They dye the water both for that purpose and to hide things like tracks for the rides.[7]

Everything from tracks to filtration systems to fountains are hidden underwater. In many cases, without the dye, water rides just wouldn’t work. Having tracks on Jungle Cruise would ruin the illusion of a trip into a remote jungle, so Disney needs to make sure that you can’t see them.

3Hidden Pits

Kilimanjaro Safaris in Disney’s Animal Kingdom is supposed to be the closest you can get to an African safari outside of Africa, and that means making it look like the animals are in their natural habitat. It’s supposed to look like they can roam anywhere, free of human intervention. However, Disney, just like everyone else, has to follow the law. In this case, that means adhering to modern zoo regulations. That’s not a problem for most of the animals, except the ones that might find the guests to be a tasty snack. (We see you, Scar.)

For the lions, this means hiding a massive pit that separates the guests from the lions using rockwork.[8] It keeps you safe without you knowing it’s there. On a side note, the rocks the lions sit on actually have air conditioning systems and can cool the lions down or warm them up, depending on the conditions.

Sometimes, Disney hides things they want you to find. This is the case with countless hidden references and Easter eggs in the Disney parks all around the world. They can reference closed rides, movies, or the people who made the ride possible. Disney loves their Easter eggs. This is also the case with Disney’s Hollywood Studios. The hidden Mickeys that are found in all Disney parks are a primary example of these references.

The entire center of the park is one giant hidden Mickey that can only be seen from above.[9] It is not as clear as it was when the park opened, but since the removal of the Sorcerer’s Hat, it can once again be seen. Planters make up the eyes of the famous mouse. The mouth is a section of darker concrete right in front of the Chinese Theater, and the ears are made of a lake and one of the buildings near Sunset Boulevard.

1Buried Underground


The Magic Kingdom is home to many secrets throughout its attractions, but it is also home to an entire underground network of tunnels connecting the lands to each other so that cast members can exit the park without entering guest areas.[10] You don’t want to see an astronaut from Space Mountain in Adventureland.

This was one of Walt Disney’s personal wishes for the Florida park to make it an improvement upon the original Disneyland. Cast members in the wrong land was a major problem for him, and this was the solution. It was expensive but effective and would even be copied in small amounts for future Disney parks. Some even say the Magic Kingdom is on level two of the park.

*Do spend your precious 2 mins to read this true story*

A multi *millionaire* was travelling in his car.

On the way, he was listening to a Satsang of a certain religious Saint.

The Saint was preaching that, *everyone in the world is after money only.But they are ignorant that they cannot take their money with them after their death.But Still they are after money only and do whatever possible ways to get the money*

The millionaire got annoyed of his statement.

He said to himself that since the Saint has no money with him, he is giving a Lecture like this.

The next day, the millionaire called all his employees and advised them to give him an idea so that he can take all his wealth alongwith him after his death.

Every one thought that their boss has gone mad and tried to avoid him.

Days passed by.
Suddenly one day a stranger approached the millionaire and informed him that he had heard about his query & he has one brilliant idea.

The millionaire could not believe his ears as everyone has declared him “Mad”.

The millionaire was very eager to hear his idea.

The stranger first asked him whether he had travelled abroad?

The millionaire said that he had visited almost all countries.

Then the stranger asked him what he had done when he went to *USA*?

The millionaire said that he had converted the Indian rupees into *American dollars* and went to USA.

The stranger again asked him, what he had done when he went to *UK* ?

The millionaire replied that he had converted Indian rupees into *Pounds Sterling* and went to England.

The stranger asked him why he did all this?
The millionaire laughed and told the stranger that *our Indian rupees have no value in USA and in England*.

The stranger replied that you are very correct and continued.
Mr. Millionaire, now *you want to go to the Heaven world after your death, correct?*.
Well, in the *Heaven* world, the name of the currency is *punnya*
So you convert your entire Indian rupees into the currency of *Punnya* so that you can spend very happily there after your death.
The rich man was convinced and very happy to hear his idea and started doing *Dharma* (charity – helping the needy without expecting anything in return😉)🙏🏼

So, *GO FOR IT!Start building your Heavenly account!👍🏼🏃🏽‍♂🏃🏽‍♂🏃🏽‍♂🏃🏽‍♂🏃🏽‍♂🏃🏽‍♂🏃🏽‍♂🏃🏽‍♂🏃🏽‍♂*

10 Terrifying Lesser-Known Cases Of American Cannibalism


JOE DUNCAN 

 

Cannibalism: the act of eating a member of one’s own species. It is as brutal and bizarre as it gets, and make no mistake—humans are not exempt from the practice. In fact, humans have been practicing cannibalism for as long as there have been humans. It is very probable that each and every single person reading this is descended from cannibals, and if you do the math, it makes sense that chasing your family tree back far enough, you would find someone who would either have been forced to cannibalize to survive or who did it because they just thought it was the right thing to do.[1]

Luckily, cannibalism isn’t very popular today and is relegated to marginalized cultures and a few depraved individuals. But every once in a while, someone comes along and shocks us with an insatiable thirst for the blood of their own kind—for human blood. This isn’t just another serial killer list with Jeffrey Dahmer or Albert Fish; these are various Americans from vastly different walks of life, forever linked by one life decision from which they would become inseparable: They each chose, for different reasons, to eat the flesh of other people. Here are ten terrifying, lesser-known American cannibals.

10Levi Boone Helm

Levi Boone Helm was an American outlaw and Wild West gunfighter born in Kentucky in 1828. He came from a well-respected family that moved to Missouri when he was a child. Like many other historical figures, his story is shrouded in mystery and folklore, but he was definitely a real person and quite capable of doing everything attributed to him. Helm would eventually settle into the bad boy routine and choose the Wild West way of life. It was said that he once walked into a courtroom while court was in session and began to yell at the judge, telling him exactly what he thought of him—and it wasn’t nice, to say the least.

Helm was known for heavy drinking and violence and had a short marriage due to rampant domestic abuse. The costs of the divorce left his family broke and impoverished, so Helm decided to head out to California to strike it rich—or have a lawless, wild time. He lived an outlaw life of rough-riding, gunfighting, running from the law, traveling, and robbing people and institutions.

Levi Boone Helm would eventually come to be known as The Kentucky Cannibal, an obvious reference to his place of birth as well as the particularly brutal way he preferred to dispose of his victims.[1] As his long killing spree progressed, the Kentucky Cannibal was reported to have eaten parts of his victims, possibly out of pure, wild savagery and for the psychological effect, or possibly in part because the life of an outlaw was a rough one, and coming by resources and shelter was often difficult.

Helm would eventually be caught for his crimes in Montana and hanged. According to legend, as the hangman approached to kick the box out from beneath his feet, he screamed, “Every man for his principles! Hurrah for Jeff Davis! Let ‘er rip!” and jumped off the box willingly, hanging himself. Levi Boone Helm died on January 14, 1864.

9Carroll Cole

Carroll Edward Cole, or “Eddie” as he was also known, was a notable, though lesser-known, American serial killer who would be executed in 1985 for his crimes. Like many other serial killers, such as Peter Kurten, Eddie Carroll had an extremely violent upbringing and was beaten as a child. This probably contributed to his violent tendencies. Cole was also forced to watch his mother have sex with men, with him in the same room.

Cole grew up in California and would ultimately go on to commit a crazed murder spree, killing “loose women” across multiple states, including Nevada, Oklahoma, Wyoming, Texas, and, of course, California.[2] He was a drunk who drifted and killed as he moved along. He was actually caught once, but the police released him, enabling Cole to murder again. Carroll then began experimenting, like many serial killers, with both necrophilia and cannibalism. He claimed that after he murdered a woman in Oklahoma, he awoke from a drunken stupor and found slices of his victim’s buttocks in a frying pan. In January 1980, he was arrested on his honeymoon and was ultimately executed by lethal injection on December 6, 1985.

8Austin Harrouff

An unusual inclusion on this list is a young Florida man named Austin Harrouff, also known, as the media dubbed him, as The Cannibal Frat Boy. Harrouff wasn’t a rugged outlaw or a brutal serial killer—he was otherwise a good kid, a young man from Florida who attended Florida State University and had a bright future ahead of him. He suddenly killed and cannibalized two people for a completely different reason: drugs.[3]

After the double homicide and act of cannibalism, police were shocked to find no illicit drugs in Austin Harrouff’s system. But what they didn’t know was what they didn’t test for: a synthetic drug known as flakka, which can cause temporary psychosis and superhuman strength. It’s like PCP in those respects, and at the time in 2016, police and authorities were just starting to wake up to the reality of synthetic drugs.

On August 15, 2016, Harrouff ingested the substance and, entirely unprovoked, attacked a couple in their home, stabbing both to death. Then he began to eat their faces. As he was eating the face of the male victim, Joseph John Stevens III, a neighbor witnessed the attack and came to help, but Harrouff stabbed him, too. The neighbor fled and called 911. The case turned into a press fiasco, with the father ending up on Dr. Phil and a young man’s life ruined because of a single stupid decision to take the wrong drug.

7Alferd Packer

Alferd Packer was another American cannibal of old, born on January 21, 1842. He joined the Union Army in the Civil War but would soon be discharged, due to seizures from epilepsy. Like many others at the time, Packer made the executive decision to pack up shop and head west for a brand new start at a brand new life. A native of Pennsylvania, he headed westbound and ended up in Colorado with a group of 21 people in early 1874. On February 9, against the suggestions of locals who had taken them in for refuge, Packer and five other men set out to cross the Colorado mountains in the middle of a particularly brutal winter, chasing their dreams and throwing caution to the wind.[4]

A blizzard hit them shortly after their departure, and the team was trapped in deep snow and ice and endured freezing temperatures. On April 16, Packer arrived at Los Pinos Indian Agency alone. It was only a matter of time before other party members from the original 21 began turning up and were skeptical of his story that a storm had killed everyone but him. Packer moved on to Saguache. Townsfolk noticed him spending large sums of money as if he had just won the jackpot.

Packer was detained after enough suspicion had been aroused, and he concocted two separate accounts of what happened to the party. At first, he said they slowly died off from starvation and the brutal cold, and he ate their corpses to survive. Pressed further, he admitted to actually killing one of the party members, though he said it was in self-defense. When a search party turned up the corpses of the other five men, it was noted that Packer’s story didn’t jibe with the way the bodies were found. He was arrested and brought up on murder charges.

Packer escaped the jail and fled, but he ended up being apprehended nine years later and held to stand trial. Due to the particularly brutal nature of his crimes, Alfred Packer was sentenced to death. He appealed and was sentenced to 40 years in prison for manslaughter. After serving 17 years, he was released to live out the rest of his days a free man. Alfred Packer died of dementia in 1907.

6Nathaniel Bar-Jonah

This man was the filthiest of the filthy, the lowest of the low; Nathaniel Bar-Jonah (born as David Paul Brown) was a child molester, probable murderer, and, of course, a cannibal. After history of attempted child lurings in Massachusetts, Bar-Jonah was caught disguising himself as a police officer in 1974, trying to kidnap a young boy. He impersonated an FBI agent in 1977 and kidnapped two boys. One managed to escape, and Bar-Jonah was arrested and ultimately sentenced to 18 to 20 years in prison. He changed his name while incarcerated and was released in 1991.

Bar-Jonah headed to Montana to continue his ravenous ways. In 1999, he was arrested for, again, impersonating a police officer. A search of his home would uncover articles of boys’ clothing, cutouts of young boys, and tons of other creepy finds. On the floor of his garage, investigators found the bone fragments of a ten-year-old boy named Zachary Ramsey, who had disappeared in February 1996. However, the charges pertaining to Ramsey were dropped, as his mother intended to testify that he was still alive. More bone fragments were found, but DNA testing confirmed that none of the bones of the two other boys found belonged to Zachary Ramsey.

Lacking evidence for a murder charge, Bar-Jonah would be charged with kidnapping, assault, and child molestation and sentenced to 130 years in prison. He would later admit to having cannibalized the children he killed. Bar-Jonah died of a heart attack in 2008.[5]

5Richard Chase

Next up on the list is the notable blood-drinker known as The Sacramento Vampire, Richard Trenton Chase. Chase was obsessed with drinking the blood of his victims, among other things. He had a lust for blood and was hospitalized for injecting animal blood into his veins. He was a tried and true hypochondriac who constantly believed he was sick and was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia, among other things. With all of this, Chase believed the only way to “cure” his supposed illnesses was to continually drink the blood of animals and freshly dead people—or at least inject it.

Chase’s brush with cannibalism would occur with the murder of Terry Wallin, a 22-year-old pregnant woman who was home alone while her husband was at work.[6] Chase killed Wallin and removed several organs, disemboweled her, and drank a yogurt cup full of her blood. Her husband tragically came home to discover the gory aftermath. Chase had eaten a part of Terry Wallin’s body at the crime scene.

4Big Lurch

Antron Singleton, otherwise known by his stage name Big Lurch, was a hip-hop musician and rapper with his whole life ahead of him who also ended up on this list by taking the wrong drugs. Though he only ended up releasing one album due to his crimes cutting his career short, Big Lurch had promise, working with a lot of rather popular talent from the San Francisco Bay Area, such as E-40, Mac Dre, and many, many more.

In April 2002, Big Lurch fatefully ingested PCP. In a crazed drug frenzy, Singleton went berserk and murdered his roommate, Tynisha Tsais, and proceeded to cannibalize her body. Her chest was sliced completely open, and a knife blade was discovered broken off inside her corpse.[7] Singleton’s teeth marks were found on her face and lungs, which had been ripped out. Before the murder, Singleton had only committed one other crime, which was a DUI, a nonviolent offense. Tsais’s murder was another act of cannibalism that came out of the blue as the result of drugs. Antron Singleton would be sentenced to life in prison in 2003.

3Rudy Eugene

Photo credit: AP

Rudy Eugene is another odd case. Nicknamed the Miami Cannibal and the Miami Zombie, Eugene would make headlines for a brutal attack he carried out in Miami, Florida. On the early morning of May 26, 2012, Eugene woke his girlfriend up, saying he had to go out to meet a friend and would be back in a little while. He told her that he loved her and left. She then later received a call from him saying, “I’m going to be late. I love you. I’ll be back.” It is believed that Eugene also took some synthetic drugs at this point. (However, only small amounts of marijuana were found in his system.)

At around 2:00 PM, a now-naked Eugene encountered a homeless man named Ronald Poppo and viciously bit off 75 percent of his face, reportedly swallowing chunks of Poppo’s flesh.[8] Poppo survived the attack, but his nose and left eye were gone (and his right eye was left blind). Eugene continued to go absolutely berserk and ended up being shot to death by the police who arrived at the scene. At this point, its extremely safe to say that synthetic drugs are a bad idea.

2Hadden Clark

Photo credit: Murderpedia

Hadden Clark is another interesting case. A very strange man born in Troy, New York, in 1952, Clark didn’t come from a particularly rough background, though his father committed suicide, and Hadden was always a little odd. Clark would be convicted of killing two victims, 23-year-old Laura Houghteling and six-year old Michele Dor. Clark was probably schizophrenicand was prone to outbursts of anger and increasingly bizarre behavior over the years. His brother, Bradfield, strangled a woman to death.

In October 1992, Laura Houghteling would disappear from her home, Clark was employed by her family as the gardener at that time. Police instantly began to suspect him and questioned him relentlessly while also gathering evidence. Eventually, he confessed to the murder of Houghteling. They then began to suspect Clark of Michele Dor’s murder in 1986 (Clark’s niece was a friend of Michele’s), and he ultimately led investigators to where he’d buried her body.

While he strangled Houghtlingen and slit her throat, it was Dor who he had cannibalized. He slit Dor’s throat and drank her blood. This, combined with the fact that he had disguised himself as Laura Houghteling after killing her in order to throw people off, earned him the nickname The Cross-Dressing Cannibal. Clark’s mother also used to dress him in girl’s clothing when he was a child. Hadden would eventually claim to have murdered dozens of people. He was sentenced to two 30-year sentences in prison for the murders of Houghteling and Dor.[9]

1Tobias Schneebaum

Tobias is another unusual one for the list, an unusual one in a list of unusual ones. Tobias was born Theodore Schneebaum but would later change his name to Tobais and became quite the eccentric New York artist and writer. He also made exploration a hobby and would travel a lot. Born in 1922, he spent much of the 1950s traveling in South America and spent months in Peru, only to be feared dead while he was living among the natives. He ended up spending some time with a tribe called the Arakmbut and would live as they lived, experiencing life as a member of the tribe.

During a hunt, the tribe encountered other people, and the confrontation turned violent. Schneebaum stood back and watched the combat until six people were dead. The tribe then gathered the bodies and started a fire, began cooking them, and ate them. It was at this point that Tobias Schneebaum took a piece of a human heart and ate it. He later recalled that it tasted “a bit like pork” and that he was not happy about having to eat it.[10]Schneebaum would return to the United States and tell of his experiences in writing, which just have been, like pretty much everyone else on this list, an extremely bizarre ride.

Jay’s Tantra day: No dilemma today. Still turning to God for answers


Jay’s Tantra technique is to turn to Bible and Gita on a day when he is faced with a dilemma and seek support and answers from God.

Today, I have no dilemma still I turn to God for answers.

Random verse from Bible that came my way is :

1 Samuel 2:2

Passage: 

“There is no one holy like the LORD;

there is no one besides you;

there is no Rock like our God.”

And the Gita Shloka said:

 

True Love


When true love is awakened in the aspirant, it leads him to the realization of God and opens up the unlimited field of lasting and unfading happiness. The happiness of God-realization is the goal of all creation. It is not possible for a person to have the slightest idea of that inexpressible happiness without actually having the experience of Godhood.

The idea that the worldly have of suffering or happiness is
entirely limited. The real happiness that comes through realizing God is worth all the physical and mental suffering in the universe. Then all suffering is as if it had never been.

Creativity: Random phrases for Friday and how my day went.


  1. Two Down, One to Go Meaning: Two things have been completed, but there is one more that has yet to be finished.  I finished two article writing and two presentations now one more to go.  Going is tough but it gets going. 
  2. Easy As Pie Meaning: Something that is easy.  Parting was so damned easy, why did I drag my feet and procrastinate?  I should have listened to my Theta brainwave and the Gut feel the very first time.  
  3. Throw In the Towel Meaning: Giving up; to surrender.  Even the worst of urban commie brainwashed bran-heads give up in surrender, the worst of the masks can be unpeeled and the already Red Inside faces can be made bloody – it is a skill, a technique,  a hard De-mentoring and exposing the pseudos – the Freeloaders who like a pest/ Leech suck your time, efforts, money and peace of mind. Good riddance! 
  4. Right Out of the Gate Meaning: Right from the beginning; to do something from the start. Someone said about hindsight and my polite response was – I have foresight and farsight. I drive with a backview mirror – I don’t need a mirror to see driving in the fore.  The hindsight is reserve of the stray horses and mares with broken or absent shoes with hurting nail which makes them kick at everything – not in sight and ignore what is in sight.  That is where the ‘Saddle point’ of negotiations arrive and the Best Jockeys – Mentors put nose rings and blinkers ON so that they can convert the strays into Race horses.  Best trainers, jockeys have a different approach to deal with them. Branding them is the first step 🙂 
  5. Jack of All Trades Master of None Meaning: Having suitable skill in multiple things, but not being an expert in any of them.  Yes.  For too long I have been that.  45 specific online courses (on Udemy)  later – i am still searching for the right niche’ to be an expert.  Otherwise, I am sure, I shall get an Honorary D.Litt. from a friendly University one day 🙂 🙂 🙂
