Sad End for Chinese Woman

by duncanr

outoforderliftregular readers of madhatters will perhaps remember that I have mentioned, before, my reluctance to take a lift/elevator if stairs are an available alternative

I don’t have a panic attack if circumstances force me to enter one but I can’t help my eyes being automatically drawn towards the maximum load warning while my brain tries to estimate the combined weight of the fat buggers squeezing themselves into this shared tin box

sad stories like this – http://tinyurl.com/hv5xtxr – strengthen my resolve to take the stairs whenever possible !

Loos in Lifts

toilet in elevatortalk about weird shit !

I agree there is a certain sense in this Japanese proposal, but if the idea ever catches on in the UK, this is one more reason for me to avoid taking a lift (elevator) if there are stairs I can use instead – http://tinyurl.com/oaeo6c4

Going Up ?

by duncanr

Stuck in an elevatorhere’s a random fact about me

given a choice of taking an elevator or stairs, I choose the stairs every time

it’s not that I have a phobia about lifts – I don’t break out in a cold sweat on the rare occasions that I’m forced to use one – it’s just an avoidance strategy I have

it’s a pity this guy didn’t follow my example – http://tinyurl.com/o7m8xja

“What would you do if you walked into a murder in progress? Two guys asked themselves the same question and staged a murder-in-progress inside a New York City elevator. Hidden cameras recorded people’s reactions”.

Seems a pretty cruel joke to play on folk?

Hope they had medical staff on hand to deal with the trauma, potential heart attacks !

LG Elevator Prank

by duncanr

To demonstrate how realistic their displays are, LG played a prank on passengers in a lift – creating the illusion (for a brief second) that the floor was collapsing from underneath them
