Jake and I went with some of the people from the patent office to King's Dominion for Fearfest. I decided that I can't suspend reality the way I used to be able to...I can't get scared watching movies or in haunted walks/houses. I mostly just find everything mildly entertaining. It really amuses me to see other people get scared, though.

I read that people that watched the first exhibition of a motion picture in Paris in the 1800s freaked out. They screamed and ducked under their seats. The film was of a train pulling into a station and there wasn't even any sound at that time. I wonder what it was like to be in that audience.
