Amaizing!
« on: October 25, 2007, 05:55:39 PM »
So I'm suddenly thinking about the Amazing Maize Maze:

I went there five years ago and we got drunkenly lost to the point where the guards had to come and show us the way out.  They give everyone a tall pole with a flag on it and, if you're lost, you just raise it up.  There's this guy on a big chair in the middle of the maze who screams out directions until you come to a waypoint where they pick you up and disappear you...forever.

I love these things. There's one about thirty miles from where Mrs. RC and I live.

It'd be awesome if they--once you walked in far enough--moved some bushes or corn rows around so that it was impossible to get out. I would like that very much.

Dude, they don't need to.  Nobody can get out of these things.  They're all, ha-ha, bring the kids.  Fuck... You'll never see them again.  These are fields of closely-packed, impenetrable, 12 foot cornstalks with eccentric designs mowed through them, gaggles of mocking local teens who know the maze by heart, and angry farmers observing you from pedestals.

Seriously, look at this year's design in PA.  Ugh...

I don't think Renwood is it. Also, didn't corn do really bad this year because of the drought?

You don't get lost in a corn!
There will come a day for every man when he will relish the prospect of eating his own shit. That day has yet to come for me.

Quote from: wikiwiki
The term maize derives from the Spanish form (maíz) of the Arawak Native American term for the plant. However, it is commonly called corn in the United States, Canada and Australia. Corn is a shortened form of "Indian corn", i.e. the Indian grain. The English word "corn" originally referred to a granular particle, most commonly cereal grains.
