25-35 mins. I has been MUCH longer in the past where people had to get into the line according to the first letter in their last name. Not this time, 6 people serviced the entire line and it moved pretty good. It was just LONG.
When I finished up, around 11am, I glanced back at the line and it was a tad longer then when I jumped in.

Sandal wearing hippie in line: "Two hours! Isn't it great? Isn't it wonderful? Isn't it fantastic?"
FUCK NO IT AIN'T. This is the twenty-first century, people - there's GOT to be a better way to get people in, voting, and out.
I lol'd when I read that because I had a similar experience. I was trying to vote on my lunch break and it was taking FOREVER. Instead of hippies, though, my annoying people in front of me were blue-hairs. I would have rather had hippies.
Oh, and I don't like touch screen voting. I prefer the 'ker-chunk' of the lever. It made it feel more important.
"Now if you'll excuse me, I'm gonna go backstage. I'm proud of myself, I just beat Brad Armstrong!" - Arn Anderson on WCW Saturday Night in 1992, in the classiest display I've ever seen of someone putting over an underrated mid-carder that everyone in the locker room knew deserved better than the push he got.
About an hour at about 830a in Brooklyn. I was in and out during the midterms in 06.
I'm excited that there are that many people voting, but there's got to be a better way to handle the handling part. People were doing what they had to to make sure they voted, but eight-hour lines in predominantly poorer districts is a poll tax in sheep's clothing.
Space Mountain in Eurodisney is awesome, like Canard (and the article) says. The whole experience where you are pretty much surrounded by darkness and see stars flashing by while you twist and twirl is..well..awesome!
