April Fools: Upcoming Rumors and News for WoL

Please note that the following article was, with no intention to deceive anyone in utmost particular, written as an April Fools joke, this time, taking advantage of what some of us might perceive as a handful of 'potential bad ideas' that would have kicked Wonders in their metaphorical knees... take this as a grain of salt.

Dear readers,
It is with a very excited heart that I get to announce the fact that the foundation for the Wonders of Life pavilion's possible return is already in place. While some of us over at WOL4EVA are thrilled to hear of such news from an unsolicited whistleblower, there are some things you may need to know:
  • Rumor has it that Buzzy, from Cranium Command, has had a job shift, and is about to sign himself up for a cameo role in the upcoming reincarnation of Habit Heroes.
  • The United Galactic Federation is also looking forward to it's acquisition effort with MET Biotechnologies (the team behind the LGS-250 probe fleet), with Dr. Jumba Jookiba as their UGF representative president. Alien experiment teams to work alongside Captain Braddock are still decided underway.
  • Also, for the first time, there will be a hands-on exhibit that not only covers what happens in your restroom, but pays tribute to the bodily organs in charge of the dirty work of our bodies. Currently code named 'Journey into Elimination', this exhibit is also awaiting a sponsor deal from the Cranium Commando's intestinal and elimination units.
  • On the topic of dirty, there will be another exhibit focusing on the exo/endo parasites that call us home. A survey is currently underway to vacation goers with regards to the topic.

Again, this is only as much information as it is permitted to be online, but there are some more details with regards to whether this information is confirmed or not, as in the case of our selected spokesperson to comment...

Another Find for Well and Goods section!

Welcome back, readers, and in another find for the Well and Goods section of the site (interesting curios and long lost merchandise, give or take its existence) we have found one item that proves spectacularly of interest amongst curio hunters. The auctioneers that brought the Cranium Command sign to a new home have also brought out an interesting find, this time, something smaller...
You guessed it, a prop certificate from the crew at MET Biotech, as seen on eBay

A Tale of a Few Old-Time Films

Welcome again, readers, and in today's article, we are looking back at a few films that somehow have inspired parts of the Wonders of Life pavilion, their attractions, and even the revolutionizing of health and lifestyle education as we know today. What made me write out this little article was due to a memory of when Extinct Attractions was once online (I know, don't ask, don't tell...), they had a preview of the Wonders of Life history documentary, about some of the health oriented films produced by Walt Disney (some of which as part of the war effort) and how they influenced the development and homage of some of its attractions. Silly old myself was meant to write the historical lookback of those films, but for some apparent reason, it was until now that I decide to write this up as of now.

Potential WoL Ressurection Ideas, part 6

Welcome back, readers, and moving on from our issues with regards to the fallen health habits experience now undergoing the scalpel, it is far wiser to get back into the hypothesis and armchair imagineering theories that Wonders would have needed. From past issues of Operation: Imagineering, here are a few articles that you might have missed:
  1. The Interior (Design, Structure at a Glance)
  2. Music Playlist
  3. Floorplan, Attraction Categories
  4. Colour and Design Schemes
  5. Sponsorship and Character Involvement

As life from the other side of the blogosphere is beginning to become hectic, you may experience a slight slump in blog updates, but I must assure you that doesn't mean all operations have abandoned ship. Keeping in line with the pavilion image, we'll continue delving into pavilion image by a few things coming...

Looking out for Number - Whaaaat?!

From a screenshot malfunction I picked out the other day...

...this reminded me at this time that when it comes to being alive, there are some tasks on the 'to do' list that aren't really glamorous. Elimination being one of them, and yet, we do it. This sounds TMI to freely admit in a society like this, but what boggles and raises my eyebrows out of humor is, well... Let's look at Bobby's black box and recall a quote from there...
Left Brain: Aren't you forgetting some... functions?
Buzzy: Uhm, Elimination, give me a reading!
Elimination: (checks reading) Bladder reading at 9.9, sir!
Buzzy: We can hold it. Full speed ahead!
Elimination: No! NO!

And yet, we reveal a plothole, primarily done to cleanly cut to the chase. But seriously?! They say if life gives one lemons, they would have to make lemonade. Though speaking of making lemonade from lemons (please don't take it as an euphemism), it would only be wise to mention that of whatever leaves us, somehow, there is always another mind out there willing to take advantage of what we take for granted...
...wait, they did? You mean those video game systems for urinals? Okay, so this is insanity for the average person, but add to the reduction of having to wipe up spilled puddles as a result of failed aim, some would say it could be a good idea, but waking up, this is a life and health focused blog, so what if there was something testing the health of...
...wait, such a thing exists too? Apparently, technology is developing that could, well, hook you up to a medical database during your ten minutes off, which could spell less awkward encounters at the doctors office.
And surely having one as part of the medical oddities showcase exhibit (if we were to be including one) could be a neutral idea (love it or loathe it). But a fully functioning one, I bet, could be the equivalent of, well, spilling and admitting your humiliating secrets to other people in earshot. But apparently, it could give someone something to think about... uhm... it's a long story.
So before the day bursts for all sorts of humiliating information, I'd rather leave that up to you readers to think it over, and express how you stand. And to close this off, let me ask you a question now this topic's dealt with: feeling better now?
