The Diving Bell

For many people, ferris wheels are just good therapy. It’s only human nature not to want to suspend yourself high above the ground in an overgrown rocking chair. But in the guise of having fun, we rise to the challenge, if for no other reason than not to look weak in front of our friends or family.

It’s odd that a ride that takes you so high should be named after something that takes you so low. Someone had a sense of humor.
