I Was Caught Out . Almost
2 March 2014 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

Dr Nick Laslowicz a well regarded scientist is of the theory that centrifugal force can effect and improve the brain development of very young children by up to 30 per cent . Knowing this he aims to develop the ultimate funfair ride that will benefit Mankind though one has to ask what four year old child will be brave enough to go on one ?

Okay I'll put my hand up and confess I was fooled . I came across this on The Short Of The Week website in the science section and being interested in the topic of science I thought I'd give it a watch . There was of course no cast list saying " Doctor Nick Laslowicz - Leslie Barany " or anything like that and thought the theories put forward had a grounding in scientific reality . For the most part it remained credible and thought Dr Nick wearing a hard hat inside a car might just be one of those quirks of an eccentric scientist . As the story continued the rides themselves did become a bit more and more outlandish especially the ride that seems to " punch " its occupants outwards in a sort elasticated arm ., but let's not forget some adrenaline junkies would love fairground rides like this . I also found it strange that during one experiment some volunteers spent 14 continuous hours on a ride but I dismissed this as people wanting to be a part of something and were getting a free fairground ride at no cost to themselves . The penny did drop with the final sequence of a ride where the mis-en-scene didn't ring true at all with an impossibly infeasible fast ride in the background and people nonchalantly walking past . If the ride was real then people including myself would stop and watch awe struck with our chins on the ground . So I wasn't fooled in the end - just for the first six minutes which serves me right for putting my faith in science
