THIS is it

This is not nearly as cool as I remembered it being, but here it is none the less. I finally found it on the internet.

Also, does everybody remember that in the cartoon Scrooge actually swam in building full of gold coins?

Does everybody also realize by now that if you tried to dive into a pile of gold coins you'd probably kill yourself?

I pose these questions because I, as a child, wanted a huge building with a dollar sign on it full of gold coins to swim in. Well, I guess more than swim in them, I wanted the power that such riches would afford, like buying any Nintendo game I wanted.

I'd like to make a side comment here that when I prayed as a child, my prayers were basically two lists. The first list was that God would keep everybody I could think of safe (mom and dad and brother and grandma and grandpa and grandma and grandpa and great-grandma, etc), and the other list was asking for everything that I wanted, as if the creator of the universe had nothing better to do than to be my own personal Santa Claus.

But I digress.

When Scrooge is getting all of his money stolen in the cartoon movie (I had a wasted childhood, I know), did he really think it was a good idea to keep all of his gold in the aforementioned building that had a big freaking dollar sign on it?

How did he get all of his money if he wasn't any smarter than that?

Now, with that said, I promise I'll lay off the Ducktales.

In other news, I am going to the Symphony again tonight, and I will enjoy it.

As far as diving into a pile of coins goes, I'll let you know how it feels as soon as I have enough to fill a pool that I may buy for a house that I may buy if I have money in the future.
