escalator

this is purely a “bitching” blog. in regards to escalators…what gives with those things? why the heck is it that every escalator has the freaking handrail portion moving at a faster speed than the part you stand on?

was it too difficult to connect that part to the same motor that rotates the stair portion of it so that it’ll all go at the same speed?

maybe they made the handrail go faster to encourage people to descend it faster? but hey the escalator is so you can be a lazy mofo and just stand as it moves you..if i wanted to walk there’s regular stairs.

not only is it useless for those that stand you’re constantly having to readjust your hand hold…or take a step down.

not only is this a nuissance this is also dangerous. working in close proximity of the mall i have seen many incidents that could have been avoided. like many senior citizens who need the escalator to ease such a descent…they already have a hard enough time timing their footsteps to land on the escalator…

now they no longer have a solid hand support for them to hold onto properly…sure they grab on to the railing and WHOOSH! next thing you know their upper body is riding the rail down whilst their feet are still planted at the top as their body slowly descents to a position that’s parallel to the ground and their now doing some crazy escalator yoga on the way down … maybe it’s just me but grannies seem to be able to maintain this near horizontal position down the escaltor recovering only after they are left lying face down at the bottom… talk about grannies with abs of steel!

the old gramps aren’t as fit it seems…often falling to their knees…

but maybe this is the reason why they do it? and maybe there’s cameras out there to watch this all happen? maybe they’re the same people who flip the switch at casinos to make the slots pour out for the seniors to compensate for this cruelty?

who knows..

is it too much to ask for synchronized hand rails?

Strangely Interesting

  • Check this out. Someone took the time to draw a pic of Homer Simpson purely in CSS.

  • Not feeling safe at night? How about a table that turns into a shield and bat?

  • Seeing as I will most likely never climb Everest, this will have to do.  Someone has kindly created this 360 Degree panorama of the view from the top.
