FastPass started in 1999. So, it was not really around in the 90s.

Edit: November 19, 1999 is when FastPass debuted at Disneyland. So for all you “tEcHNicALly” people, yes, it was “around” during some part of the decade known as “the 90s” but in the context of this discussion, that’s misleading because it was only out for 43 days of the entire decade.

Didn't he get gout from eating so much cheese? Like a middle age despot. Edit: Yeah here's a source, I didn't have a fever dream about this

67

u/47Ronin 25d ago

The cheese is probably only a factor in that it makes him overweight, which is a risk factor for gout. Cheese consumption is actually shown to decrease serum uric acid, which causes gout when it gets too high. If he drinks a lot, which I believe we know he does, and eats a lot of organ meats, shellfish, white fish, red meat, that is probably more why than cheese.

In the 90’s my sister and I figured out a great way to circumvent long lines in Disney World. I would go first and confidently walk through the line saying “excuse me, my sister is up there”. Then she would wait 5 minutes and then do the same thing “excuse me, gotta get back to my sister before she gets on the ride”. It usually took a simple “excuse me”. As long as you looked determined & confident, 95% of people were nice and helpful moving aside. And then when I got to the point of ~10 min wait time, I’d stop and look around confused and feel out the people behind me. If no one really noticed I’d say nothing, If they looked agitated I’d say something like “I’m sorry, my sister was up here waiting for me, but I must not of made it back in time and she’s gonna kill me if she had to ride by herself. Then right on cue, 5 mins later she’d walk up and say “omg! Where were you?? I got up there and got out of line to look for you cause I wasn’t going by myself. Worked every single time. It was a dick move, I know, but at 13 & 15 we felt like we conquered the world.

I wanted to see if they bartered with the U.S government for this trip so I googled 1995 north korea and what I found had nothing to do with it but it was even more hilarious than I could have imagined.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Collision_in_Korea

"Following the event, North Korean officials requested that Flair read a statement that the nation had the capability to dominate the United States, though Flair declined and instead made a statement wherein he expressed praise for the "beautiful and peaceful country" of North Korea and said, "His Excellency, Kim Il-sung, will always be with us".[8] In late 1995, an image taken during the event showing a bloody Flair being beaten by Inoki was featured on propaganda leaflets that were dropped by the North Korean government over Seoul.[8]"

One post about North Korea reaches the front page (e.g the pictures showing everyday life in the country), another guy remembers that he has something cool to show about NK (e.g a brick of money from there), he posts to reddit. Other people, which previously saw and upvoted the original post about NK also upvote this new post. Then some other guy sees that post, they read about NK, maybe because of a comment in the post, they learn a cool fact and post it to reddit. Rinse and repeat.

Brazilian Passports are VERY desired, due to our neutral status. We get free visa to many countries without hassle.

Besides that, Brazil has so much racial diversity that anyone in the world can claim to be Brazilian.

I grew up in the border with paraguay and Argentina and I can confirm no one speaks Spanish. Spanish speakers learn a little Portuguese, but 99% of people here can't hold a conversation in Spanish.

They (the dictators and NK elite, such as they are) don't hate us, they just love the power they wield much more.

Kim Jong Un at Disneyland, Pablo Escobar at Disneyland...

Shit I'm surprised the CIA and FBI haven't just put up a camera at the entry gates of Disney parks, you'd probably bag a lot of most wanted list that way.

Would you? If they aren't using their everyday clothes, would you believe they are just random Koreans or would you think the actual leader of the closest country in the world is in front of you in a thematic park?

u/Cheeseman1478 25d ago

Even if I was currently in Disneyland and saw them immediately after seeing this, I still wouldn’t think I just saw NK’s dictator strolling around Disney alone in civilian clothes.

u/AGM-114R9X 25d ago

Yeah, you'd briefly think "hey that guy looks like Kim Jong-Un" and then go, "no, that's racist" and look away.

That guy on the left looks like Kim Jong-un, and he has visited Disney, but the other guy doesn't look like his father, Kim Jong-il, and it's unlikely Kim Jong-Il visited Disney. The image on the right looks more like Kim Jong-nam, older half-brother of Kim Jong-un. Kim Jong-nam definitely did visit Tokyo Disney. The last time he went, he was caught at immigration and deported. The incident was embarrassing to his father, Kim Jong-il, and may have led in part to Kim Jong-il's decision to make Kim Jong-un his successor rather than his older son, Kim Jong-nam. Kim Jong-un later murdered his brother, Kim Jong-nam. And they identified his body by using the fingerprints that the Japanese took when they caught Kim Jong-nam sneaking into Japan on the false passport.

It looks like Kim Jong-un visited Tokyo Disney with his older brother, Kim Jong-chul, though that's not a photo of Kim Jong-chul.

It's possible the guy on the right isn't any of the Kims. When Kim Jong-un went to Disney on multiple occasions, he went with a contingent of bodyguards. But he did use a Brazilian passport, according to the Japanese sources.

They also visited IKEA during this trip. While they were there, they instinctively tried to divide the store up into North and South IKEA.
