Funny Aneurysm Moments that don't have their own categories yet.


Examples:

    open/close all folders 

    Advertising 
  • The commercials for the Ayds appetite-suppressant candy (which, yes, died slowly during the 1980s because of the rise of AIDS combined with its unfortunately similar name. Back then the disease was called "GRID", short for Gay-Related Immune Deficiency before it was renamed in the '80s).
    "Thank goodness for Ayds!"
    "Why take diet pills when you can enjoy Ayds?"
  • In 1997, Sarah Ferguson appeared in a commercial for Weight Watchers where she was being hounded by reporters, and she says, "Losing weight can be harder than outrunning the paparazzi!" A few weeks later, her sister-in-law Diana (former Princess of Wales) had a run-in with the paparazzi that ended poorly.
  • Toyota's slogan "Moving Forward" has become a lot more uncomfortable ever since the 2010 recalls, since people have reported that their Toyota vehicles accelerate suddenly and uncontrollably, and don't respond to the driver pressing the brake pedal.
  • There used to be a chain called Chapter 11 Bookstores with the motto "Prices so low, you'd think we'd go bankrupt!". Which, yes, they later did.
  • In late 2011, one of the ads in the long-running Ashton Kutcher Nikon Coolpix campaign featured the man using his camera to seduce a bunch of women and lead them up to his hotel room. Around that same time, his marriage to Demi Moore was dissolving thanks to a very public affair.
  • Mattel Electronics' commercial for BurgerTime, which ends with Mr. Hot Dog saying "We are closed now!" as he slams the window shut on the drive-thru, came out months before Mattel Electronics closed down.
  • During the '00s, Washington Mutual ran a series of ad campaigns focused on how great it was for its bold new business practices that were so great for consumers, like loans for borrowers that other banks considered risky. The campaigns featured WaMu's hip spokesman contrasted against a bunch of old and stodgy executives from their competitors, all of whom would declare that WaMu's new innovation would never catch on. Then WaMu went bankrupt...because of loans to risky borrowers.
  • Apple's '1984' advert, depicting IBM as a 1984-esque Big Brother figure, while these days, Apple are HUGE champions of Digital Restrictions Management and locking down devices so users can't use devices they own to their full capability. In addition, Apple banned The Best Page in the Universe from being viewable from Apple Stores and on Apple offices' networks, which Maddox speculates was due to his anti-iPhone page.
  • Commercials for Breyers ice cream used to feature kids having trouble reading the ingredient labels of competitors, struggling to pronounce things like "polysorbate 80" and "mono and diglycerides", but can easily read the much simpler list of Breyers' ingredients containing things like milk and natural vanilla. However, Unilever has been cutting costs in the brand, so it features those same ingredients nowadays and is even marketed as "frozen dairy dessert" due to the use of the cheaper skim milk and whey (a byproduct of cheese) instead of whole milk and cream.
  • A Federal Express ad features Steve Irwin dying of a snake bite because he used the wrong service to deliver the antidote. Granted, it wasn't a snake that ended up killing him, but still...
  • A 2010 ESPN "This is Sportscenter" ad featured mild-mannered Dwight Howard getting the story on how Superman saved Hannah Storm from a coffee machine that caught on fire (the joke, of course, being that Superman is Dwight Howard's alter ego). In December 2012, Storm received severe facial and upper body burns after a gas grill's propane tank exploded in her face.
  • Subway had a mobile game called Jared's Pants Dance marketed for kids, which becomes a very unfortunate name in light of Subway's promoter, Jared Fogle's convictions of child pornography possession and sexual abuse of minors.
  • In 2008, Greyhound pulled a series of bus ads, with one featuring the slogan "There's a reason you've never heard of bus rage," after passenger Vince Li, in the midst of a psychotic episode, attacked and decapitated fellow passenger Tim McLean.
  • A 1996 Snickers commercial shows a football player taking a big hit and subsequently thinks he is Batman. Pretty funny at the time, but since then there have been a ton of studies and examples of the damage that can be done to football players (all football players, regardless of type) by repeated head injuries.
  • Nike ads featuring double-amputee sprinter Oscar Pistorius with the tagline "I am the bullet in the chamber" became unfortunate after Pistorius was charged with shooting his girlfriend.
  • In 1968, London Weekend Television was due to start broadcasting. During the final weekend of their predecessor ATV London's broadcast, they ran a short trailer with a letter giving a positive review of the programming for the upcoming first weekend. The announcer noted that the letter "seem(ed) a bit premature", and indeed it was — the first weekend (and several more afterward) ended up being wiped out by strike action.
  • A 2000 Super Bowl ad has a presenter who mentions how "in 2004, the tide was turned against AIDS", in 2006 ("two years later", according to the ad), there were "great strides against cancer, and most notably, a "remarkable breakthrough against spinal cord injuries", which featured the CG-enhanced Christopher Reeve walking onstage. Sadly, Reeve would die in 2004, as would his wife Dana from lung cancer (despite being a non-smoker) in 2006, and we haven't seen so much progress in all those areas.
  • An ad for Flexon bendable eyeglass frames showed a metal skyscraper ducking out of the way of an oncoming airplane. The campaign debuted in August 2001.
  • A 2009 commercial for the MTV Video Music Awards features Taylor Swift singing about the 2009 VMAs and how good it will be, including the line "There'll be no teardrops on my guitar." At the actual show, Kanye West hijacked the microphone from Taylor Swift during her acceptance speech so that he could rep Beyonce. Swift was reportedly reduced to tears after the incident.
  • A 1981 commercial for Raintree Hand & Body Lotion featured Natalie Wood saying "If I were you, Raintree's the last hand lotion I'd ever try", as well as making other statements to that effect. The commercial aired frequently throughout November of 1981 — up to and including November 29, the day Wood fell off her yacht near Catalina Island and drowned. As a result, her statement in the commercial — likely the last she ever filmed — was given an unfortunate new meaning.note 
  • During Christmas in 1999, Sunny Delight ran a commercial in the UK that depicted a snowman turning orange. The ad wound up airing the same week as news reports came in about a girl whose skin became yellow after drinking it several times a day; it didn't help the drink had already come under fire for exaggerating its health benefits.

    Asian Animation 
  • In the Simple Samosa episode "Chhote Rajaji", the town of Chatpata Nagar falls victim to an epidemic where a bunch of the citizens feel a severe spiciness and in some cases breathe fire. This leads to people waiting in line to go into the hospital and wear masks, which makes it eerily resemble the coronavirus pandemic. The episode originally aired in the summer of 2018, more than a year before the pandemic started in China in late 2019.

    Comic Strips 
  • A Father's Day For Better or for Worse strip in 1989 showed Lizzie telling John, "You're the best daddy in the whole wide world!! Next to Bill Cosby, that is." By the time the strip came up for reprinting in 2018, Cosby had been convicted of sexual assault. As a result, the reprinted strip replaced Lizzie's second sentence with "Mom said you'd be happy if I said that!"

    Magazines 
  • The June 1993 Disney Adventures cover featured Michael Jackson carrying a delighted Pinocchio (his favorite Disney character, according to the magazine) on his shoulders. Two months later, Jackson was first accused of child molestation and in the years to come his Neverland Ranch would be compared to Pleasure Island, where young boys were free to play but had to pay a horrific price for their fun — including at his 2004-05 trial on a second set of charges. Similarly, all the "Pied Piper of Pop" accolades that flew around him in The '80s turned sour in the wake of the accusations, as people remembered what happened to the kids he enchanted. (A Cracked back cover in '93 spoofed this with Jackson as "The Pied Piper of Encino".)
  • Charb, cartoonist and editor in chief of the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, published a drawing on January 7th, 2015 on the magazine's Twitter, titled "Still no terrorist attack in France", in which a terrorist said "[they] had until the end of January for the wishes." A few hours later...
  • MAD: In the "20 Dumbest People, Events, and Things" for 2008, Amy Winehouse's destructive behavior was listed at number 11. The end of the entry stated: "It makes us wonder if her next full-house appearance will be at a funeral home." About two-and-a-half years later, Winehouse was found dead in her London flat at age 27.
  • Nintendo Power's Player Pulse section in volume 72 (May 1995) featured a list of "Top 10 Crime Games". #10 was "Super Bomber Man 3: The World Trade Center". Let that sink in for a moment...

    Politics 

    Professional Wrestling 

    Radio 
  • Frank Kramer of Frosty, Heidi, and Frank fame has had a long career's worth of jokes mocking the ideas of love and monogamy. In late 2017, however, he claimed to begin seeing a therapist about his "intimacy issues" as he called them. In their October 24th, 2017 broadcast, inspired by the rising #metoo movement, Frank admitted for the first time ever that he was molested as a young toddler, and had the realization that this might be where his intimacy problems stem from. His history of jabs at love and marriage is considerably less funny now, knowing where it's supposedly coming from.
  • Gordon Ramsey asks Irish Broadcaster Gerry Ryan if he's had his heart checked. Ryan died of an apparent heart attack sometime afterward.
  • An episode of I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue from 1995 where, after they both try to speak at once, Willie Rushton says to Barry Cryer, "No, you go first, you're likely to die sooner than me". Willie Rushton died the next year.
    • In 1995, Tim Brooke-Taylor predicted that a 2010 Radio Times would include a listing for "I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue with Humphrey Lyttelton, Barry Cryer, Graeme Garden, and Tim and Samantha Brooke-Taylor." Willie, the only one of the regulars left out, died the next year, while the others were all alive up to Humph's death in 2008.
    • Willie often complained about the "___'s Ball" games full of punning names about various subjects. At his last ISIHAC recording, the chosen subject was "Undertaker's Ball," full of puns about death and burial.
  • On an episode of Fibber McGee and Molly from March 20th, 1945 where Fibber is trying to fix the radio, Molly says "I hope you fix it in time for Roosevelt's next inauguration!" Franklin D. Roosevelt died 23 days later.
  • The special 25th-anniversary edition of I'm Sorry I'll Read That Again in 1989 ended with David Hatch reading the credits and finally saying "I hope to see you all again in 25 years' time", to laughter and cheers from the audience. All the original performers were (and as of 2015 are) alive 25 years later — except David Hatch.
  • The week before he suddenly died of a brain aneurysm, radio DJ Kidd Kraddick did a segment called "Deathbed Confessions", where he imagined what he would say to his radio cohosts when he was on his deathbed.
  • One of the Running Gags on Car Talk, established in the show's early years, was that Tom could never remember the previous week's Puzzler. Tom eventually developed Alzheimer's disease. Ray boldly Lampshaded the trope in his on-air announcement of Tom's death, saying of his brother's inability to remember the Puzzler, "I guess he wasn't kidding."

    Real Life 
  • The crew of the Apollo 1 took this mock portrait, jokingly praying to the untested craft. It becomes a lot less funny when they all burned to death inside it during a routine test.
  • On November 24, 1958, at a Friars' Club roast in Los Angeles for Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz, after comedian Harry "Parkyakarkus" Einstein note  suffered a heart attack and slumped into Milton Berle's lap, emcee Art Linkletter asked Tony Martin to sing a song in order to lighten the mood. He selected "There's No Tomorrow" (sung to the melody of "O Sole Mio"), and sadly, Harry Einstein died soon afterward, with Tony Martin serving as a pallbearer at his funeral.
  • From "The Good War" — the massive set of WWII-based interviews by historian Studs Terkel (the brackets are part of the title, by the way): The interviewee, Maurice E. Wilson, talks about an apparently white man called Robert Brooks in his unit whom Wilson often called Nig on account of his features and hair. After Brooks died, it emerged that he was black and had lied about his race (he was pale enough to pass for white) to get into a white outfit.
  • James Rodale - a writer and publisher who advocated for organic foods and healthy living in such publications as Prevention magazine - died of a heart attack at 72 while appearing as a guest on The Dick Cavett Show. Just minutes earlier, Rodale had predicted he would "live to be 100".
  • In 1984, artist Patrick Nagel participated in a celebrity "aerobathon" to raise funds for the American Heart Association. Immediately after, he suffered a heart attack and died in his car.
  • Providence radio DJ Doctor Metal of the hard rock station WHJY threatened not to go see Metallica play during the summer (even though he supported them on the air since they were still in the underground) if their new album wasn't good. He then qualified the statement by saying he doesn't know what'll happen and he could be dead by then. Shortly after that, Doctor Metal died in the Station nightclub fire in Rhode Island in February 2003. Oh and that next album, St. Anger? It was almost universally hated by Metallica fans upon its release.
  • After a would-be terrorist tried igniting a bomb in his shoe in 2001, some comedian quipped, "...so now the government is looking in people's shoes. Thank god he wasn't trying to light a bomb in his crotch." In 2009 someone did try to light a bomb in his crotch, using a packet of the plastic explosive sewn to his underwear.
  • When Amy Winehouse was a guest on Nevermind The Buzzcocks some of the jokes told by Simon Amstell included: "you want us all to sit here while you drink yourself to death?" "This is not a pop quiz anymore, this is an intervention. [...] We used to be close, what happened?" Amy's response? "She's dead, let it go, Simon"
  • On Patton Oswalt's blog in 2007, in a gag list of his top five albums from the year he includes "Remembrance: The Amy Winehouse Box", giving Island Records credit for "embracing reality and preparing for the inevitable."
  • Helen Keller, who lived during the first half of the 20th century, owned a dog named Kamikaze. That was a pretty beautiful name for a dog back then, as it's Japanese for "Divine Wind"... except, thanks to World War II, most people who hear "kamikaze" think of suicide bombers.
  • One of the most famous letters written by Klemens von Metternich (1773-1859) says this: "My life has coincided with a wretched epoch. I came into the world too soon or too late (...). I ought to have been born in 1900 and to have had the twentieth century before me." Of course, Metternich couldn't know that people born at the beginning of the 20th century had to witness far worse than the Revolutions that made him so bitter.
  • One passenger on a Malaysia Airlines flight joked about his plane disappearing on Twitter before it was shot down over Ukraine.
  • Kate Upton said in a 2014 interview regarding her not doing nude shoots: “...with social media and the Internet and not so great blogs and the attention like that, I don’t think that my pictures would be received in the way that I’d want them to be received. That’s why I’ve stayed away from them.” Not long afterward, on Labor Day a hacker got hold of and released private pictures of herself, Jennifer Lawrence and other ladies... suffice to say she was right.
  • There once was a time when TV presenter Jimmy Savile acting goofy and silly was considered to be all in good fun. Even when he grabbed women and children or made Did I Just Say That Out Loud? comments which shocked, surprised and embarrassed people, everyone assumed them nothing else but innocent jokes. After his death, when he turned out to have been a gigantic sex offender of minors, all these antics have become Harsher in Hindsight. It has gotten to the point that all his memorials, statues, archive footage, pictures, fundraising organizations,... have been now been effectively removed, destroyed or disbanded, making him an Un-person at this point.
  • After the Columbia space shuttle broke up during re-entry, one of the items recovered in the debris field was the videotape that was being recorded in the cabin as they were re-entering (this was standard procedure on shuttle flights). The final critical minutes were missing (presumably because the outer layers of the tape on the take-up reel were damaged), but fifteen minutes into the recording, as the glow of the plasma caused by atmospheric re-entry becomes visible through the cabin windows and lights up the interior, Pilot Willie McCool says, "This is amazing, it's really getting fairly bright out there", and Commander Rick Husband jokes, "Yeah, you definitely don't want to be outside now"... A few minutes later they were.
  • In an interview with GQ in 2007, Hayden Panettiere stated "You can’t schedule rehab for me... I think I’m going to be one of those boring girls." In 2015, she did go into rehab for postpartum depression.

    Theme Parks 
  • Disney Theme Parks
    • A popular joke on the Jungle Cruise has the skippers advising parents "Watch your children, or the crocodiles will". In June 2016, a two-year-old boy was dragged into a lagoon and drowned by an alligator near Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, and the cruise skippers were told to never use the joke again.
    • Universe of Energy at Epcot was once sponsored by Exxon, and while it discussed clean energy at length, it also ended with a long celebration of Exxon and their oil tankers. This...didn't go over well after a certain incident in Alaska, and the show was changed...

    Sports 
  • Football manager Alan Pardew — who was out of work at that time — was censured for comparing a challenge by Michael Essien as rape during the Chelsea vs Manchester City in March 2009. The player who was the victim of that tackle? Ched Evans, who was imprisoned for rape just 3 years later, though was later acquitted.
  • Rob Moroso was named the 1990 NASCAR Rookie of the Year, despite dying in a DUI accident earlier in the season. The scary part to this is that his first sponsorship in a NASCAR race was Old Milwaukee beer! This is even more frightening if you consider that for the two races he was sponsored by Old Milwaukee, he was only 17!
  • The development of Nomex firesuits in the 1960s for race car drivers was brought on by the deaths of three drivers due to fire, and the lackluster protection drivers were offered at the time. The first driver to die was a NASCAR driver by the name of Edward Glenn Roberts Jr. His nickname? "Fireball Roberts!" He really should've picked a better nickname...
  • This Subway commercial features an American football referee with a number 85 shirt admitting to missing a call. In 2008, referee Ed Hochuli admitted to missing a call to the San Diego Chargers coach, which ended up costing the Chargers the game. Hochuli's shirt number? 85.
  • At the age of 25, college basketball legend "Pistol" Pete Maravich stated in an interview, "I don't want to play 10 years in the NBA and then die of a heart attack at 40." A leg injury necessitated his retiring from basketball after 10 seasons. And he died of a heart attack, at 40.
  • In a 2006 Toronto Star interview, then-Toronto Maple Leafs defenseman Wade Belak was asked where he'd be in 5 years, and jokingly replied "Dead". Belak died of suicide 5 years later, in 2011, and the interview was reprinted
  • Eugene Robinson was a longtime free safety who joined the Atlanta Falcons in 1998 after having appeared in the previous two Super Bowls with Green Bay. The morning before the 1999 Super Bowl (the third consecutive he appeared in), Robinson, who had been outspoken about his Christian faith, received the Athletes in Action Bart Starr Award for outstanding Christian character. That night, Robinson got arrested for soliciting a prostitute who turned out to be an undercover cop. Robinson returned the award.
  • French-Canadian Formula One driver Gilles Villeneuve called the Belgian Zolder circuit "a good killer" in an interview in early 1982. (meaning it would be extremely tiring in the hard-sprung cars of the time). He was killed in a crash at that track later in the same year.
  • Jochen Rindt, upon winning the 1970 German Grand Prix at Hockenheim, claimed that his car was so easy to drive that a monkey could have won the race. 2 races later and Rindt was dead, having crashed the very same car. Rindt was advised a year before he died by his manager (one Bernie Ecclestone); "If you want to win, join Lotus. If you want to live, join Brabham". He joined Lotus.
  • F1 journeyman Andrea de Cesaris had an unfortunate reputation for crashing often, gaining him the nickname Andrea de Crasheris. Funny at the time, but now takes on a different meaning after he was killed in a motorcycle accident near his home in 2014.
  • A columnist writing for the San Jose Mercury News joked in his October 17, 1989 column that, as the two teams contesting the World Series were from California (San Francisco and Oakland), an "earthquake could rip through the Bay Area before they sing the national anthem for Game 3". The Loma Prieta earthquake, the most intense earthquake in California for 35 years and in San Francisco for 80 years, struck at 5:04 pm that day... during the warm-up for Game 3.
  • Declan Sullivan, a Notre Dame student, had a job filming the school's football practice from a hydraulic scissors lift. On an extremely windy day, he tweeted, "Gusts of wind up to 60 mph. Well, today will be fun at work. I guess I've lived long enough." During work that day, the lift collapsed and he died.
  • "I probably won't be alive to see it (his record 88-game winning streak broken)" - John Wooden (Died June 2010, the record was broken by The University of Connecticut Women's Basketball in December 2010.)
  • "This is gonna be a spectacle. This is a great way to go out." - Dan Wheldon to ABC during pace laps of the final race of the 2011 Indy Car Series, commenting on the scale of the event and his shot at a $5,000,000 prize in Las Vegas. He would be killed from injuries sustained in a mass accident 11 laps into the race.
  • Greg Moore, injured in the paddock following an accident on his scooter the day before the final race of the 1999 CART season at Fontana, gave an interview to ESPN before getting into his car. The reporter handed back to the commentators with the words: "Greg's ready to fly today". Just under an hour later, Greg's car became airborne and hit a barrier. He was killed instantly.
  • Penn State's venerable college football program was rocked in 2011 when allegations of child sexual abuse against former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky, spanning several decades, became public. Back in 2001 Sandusky had published an autobiography titled Touched: The Jerry Sandusky Story.
  • Australian Rules Football: In 2013, Essendon's slogan was "Whatever it takes". Then news of the doping scandal broke.
  • In 2020, when the NBA announced new procedures for interviews with the media in the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak, Jazz player Rudy Gobert jokingly touched every reporters microphone and recorders. Just two days later, Gobert ended up being diagnosed with COVID-19, and the rest of the NBA season was postponed.

    Stand Up Comedy 
  • Bill Cosby:
    • One track on his Himself album is titled "Kill the Boy". It begins with Bill's wife telling him to go upstairs and kill their son. Not so funny after Ennis Cosby's murder. He also made a remark about his daughters killing his son. Something like: "The boy is eleven. I don't think he'll make it to twelve. His sisters will kill him."
    • The many rape allegations against Cosby that led to his prison sentence makes his Spanish Fly routine very uncomfortable. Plus, it appeared in an album called It's True! It's True!
  • An oft-repeated Billy Connolly routine from the '90s onwards revolved around his visit to the doctor for a prostate exam. In 2013 he was diagnosed with prostate cancer. Luckily he has now been given the all-clear.
  • Before she passed away, Joan Rivers was set to do a UK tour called "Before They Close the Lid".
  • Patton Oswalt: In one of his comedy specials, Oswalt jokes about how difficult it is to write edgy comedy now that he's so happily married. A few years later, his wife died suddenly, and he followed up with a comedy special in which his grief plays a large role.
  • Roy Chubby Brown's 1996 comedy special Roy Chubby Brown Goes Down Under featured jokes about Rolf Harris songs being about sex. In 2014, Harris was convicted of being a sex offender, making this a lot darker.

    Tabletop Games 
  • The core rulebook for White Wolf's Vampire: The Requiem includes, in a passage about storytellers embellishing the "dark and gritty" elements of the World of Darkness, a description of the differences between the Real Life version of New Orleans and the World of Darkness version; this was an example for the book. The last paragraph detailed how the street level was just below the water level of the Mississippi River and that the water was held back by levees that were ill-kept. Vampire: The Requiem was first published in 2004, one year before Hurricane Katrina caused the canal levees in New Orleans to break and flood the entire city.
  • Flying Buffalo thought it would be funny to pretend that one volume of their Grimtooth's Traps series had been confiscated in a government raid (presumably so the carefully-unidentified agency could use those traps). Four years later, Steve Jackson Games was raided by the US Secret Service and GURPS Cyberpunk confiscated. Sorta killed the joke, there (and Flying Buffalo's publisher apologized in the next reprinting of the Traps volume that had the fake raid story).

    Still Other Examples 
  • In the RiffTrax of Batman & Robin, when Bane is charging through Arkham Asylum with Mr. Freeze's Power Armor in a shopping cart, the joke that's made is "Just like Wal-Mart on Black Friday." In 2008, a Wal-Mart employee was trampled to death on Black Friday.
  • A video created for the 5th anniversary of the Spirit rover's landing on Mars used a song with the lyric "She's run aground, she's run aground." Shortly thereafter, Spirit got stuck in a sand dune and can no longer, um... rove.
  • In this video, a man is frequently heard calling the coaster he's on a "Togo Death Machine" (TOGO was the name of the manufacturer). In mid-2007, a woman was killed on that very exact ride when the trains derailed, and the park ended up closing later that year.
  • David Gest, a music producer and celebrity contestant on numerous reality shows, was set to host a concert tour before he died in April 2016. The name of the tour, the David Gest Is Not Dead But Alive With Soul Tour was a humorous jab at a fellow contestant on Celebrity Big Brother who thought he was dead. Worse is that the poster for said tour has David emerging from a coffin...
  • Anthony Bourdain's wife once went on a vegan diet and dragged him into a vegan restaurant. He announced that the food was so bad it would break up their marriage and he would commit suicide. They divorced a few years later and he died of suicide in 2018.
  • Around 2018 and 2019, there was a popular drawing shown in meme pages of a plane falling towards the ground, before hitting the ground and bouncing up with a "Boeing!" noise. Months later, 2 Boeing 737 MAX planes suddenly dived into the ground and crashed, killing hundreds and forcing Boeing to ground its entire 737 MAX fleet.
  • The New York Hall of Science was one of many public areas forced to close in light of the coronavirus pandemic. This right after they had hyped an exhibition about...."Survival." Even better/worse? The Hall of Science is located in Corona Park.
