It's A Small World Going Super-Size?

When I heard about this on NPR today, I couldn’t figure out how to react…

“Back in 1963, when the boats that carry customers through Disneyland’s “It’s a Small World” ride were designed, the average male weighed 175lbs and the average female 135lbs. Not anymore. Disney is now undertaking a massive renovation in which the boats will be redesigned and the flume deepened to accommodate the additional poundage.”
