It is an adventure
Did You Know? - Star Tours is a motion simulator attraction currently operating at Disneyland Paris. The ride is based on the successful Star Wars film series created by George Lucas; it was the first Disney attraction based on a non-Disney produced film.
The first incarnation of the ride appeared in Tomorrowland at Disneyland in 1987, replacing the previous attraction, Adventure Thru Inner Space. Star Tours at Disneyland closed on July 27, 2010 to allow for the conversion to Star Tours: The Adventures Continue.
The attraction opened at Disneyland on June 3, 2011, replacing the parks' original Star Tours attractions. It features an updated ride system, which consists of a new high-definition video, a Dolby 3D high-definition screen, an improved motion simulator and several new special effects and Audio-animatronics.
In the original version, passengers rode in a vehicle named the "Starspeeder 3000". Since the new attraction is set before the original film, the new ride vehicle is referred to as a "Starspeeder 1000". The new vehicles are 'piloted' by an animatronic AC-38 droid, though during the show the controls are handed over to a new pilot, C-3PO.

The goat was decorated for Halloween... See is necktie
All the signs are up
They were in full swing
Did You Know? - It is not certain how the custom of making jack-o'-lanterns at Halloween came about. However, it is thought to come from the British Isles, where turnips, mangelwurzel or beets were used.
Turnip lanterns, sometimes with faces carved into them, were made on the Gaelic festival of Samhain (31 October–1 November) in the 19th century in parts of Ireland and the Scottish Highlands.
Samhain was a time when fairies and spirits were said to be active.
The purpose of these lanterns may have been threefold. They may have been used to light one's way while outside on Samhain night; to represent the spirits and otherworldly beings; and/or to protect oneself and one's home from them.
Bettina Arnold writes that they were sometimes set on windowsills to keep them out of one's home.
However, others suggest that they originated with All Saints' Day (1 November)/All Souls' Day (2 November) and that they represented Christian souls in purgatory.

Blasting powder???? Oops
Did You Know? - Dynamite was invented by Alfred Nobel and was the first safely manageable explosive stronger than black powder. Nobel obtained patents for his invention: in England on May 7, 1867 and in Sweden on October 19, 1867.
He originally sold dynamite as "Nobel's Blasting Powder". After its introduction, dynamite rapidly gained wide-scale use as a safe alternative to gunpowder and nitroglycerin. Nobel tightly controlled the patents, and unlicensed duplicating companies were quickly shut down. However, a few American businessmen got around the patent by using a slightly different formula.
