Monkeys on the wall of death

When you are young, there are defining moments that shape your view of the world. And so it was when I was a little boy and we went to the county fair.

THE WALL OF DEATH was a huge attraction that had everyone abuzz. See chimpanzees race for life on the THE WALL OF DEATH. See incredible speed, incredible danger, incredible, incredible, incredible!

The THE WALL OF DEATHwas a huge vertical tube where they raced monkeys in go karts. They would go round and round and climb the walls, with the centrifugal force holding the cars up. The monkeys were strapped in, the steering was turned to the left a little, and the throttle was pegged, so the monkey would just have to hold on and wait for the thing to run out of gas.

Spectators would stand on the outside of the tube, at the top looking down, and it's amazing a kart never flew out the top. They would whizz round and round and round, banging wheels, squealing and I think most of them were having a good time.


We stayed for several shows. It was thrilling, compelling stuff. I convinced Dad to stay for yet more, and he was having a good time too, so we lined up at the top of the tube with a hoard of other cheering maniacs to see our little heroes in action.

Well, they brought in a different monkey, and this guy was scared out of his mind. He was screaming his guts out and fighting for all he was worth. Apparently he'd been down this road before and didn't like it.

So round and round they went on the wall of death with the monkey becoming more and more agitated with each blurred swirl around the tube, squealing, screaming, frozen in a blind panic. Eyes wide open, knuckles white on the wheel, heart pounding in his chest, until he had finally had enough and did some serious monkey business.

Of course, centrifugal force took over and most of us at the top of the tube suffered the splattering of monkey business.

Monkeys in a barrel. Round and round THE WALL OF DEATH. Clean up the mess and plug in another monkey. Seems pretty simple, really.

Just hooked up my EARLY '90s SONY LBT-D107 home stereo system to the TV!! Watching "Independance Day" and after all these years it still sounds awesome! Fills the house with sound, sounds like we in a movie theater minus the sticky floor and nasty seats!

1991 model by the way. Still works flawlessly! AM, FM, dual cassette , 5 disc CD changer, equalizer, variable surround sound and bass knobs. It all still works! Something to be said about SONYs quality there. 20+ years old and still like new! SKORE!!!
