If every staircase in the world was rigged like this, I think we could achieve world peace.

Anyone who takes the escalator when given that option should have their legs broken.

I used to live in Minnesota and we had a staircase like this in the art museum. It sounded like children mashing random keys most of the time.

Wow, that`s pretty awesome. I wonder if it would get old, and people would go back to the escalator?

((If the goal was to get people to use the stairs, though, just turn off the escalator!))

I really like the fun factor. People need more to smile at in life, on a day-to-day basis.

2:66%more people than normaly chose the stairs instead of the escilator

3:apparently, happyness can alter peoples behaviour

4: we call it the "fun-theory"

Yay scandinavic languages

[quote]Europe is better than the USA and UK in every way.[/quote]

Having lived in Europe for seven years now, I can think of many many ways in which it is not better than the USA or the UK. In fact, I`m bailing the feck out of it and moving to Canada. Once the Visa is sorted, I hope to be there by Christmas.

Europe? Been there, lived it, done it, bought the T-shirt, and in conclusion: F*ck that sh*t.

v He has a point, though. The best things in the world are often that way because there`s so little of it. If Christmas came more than once a year, you wouldn`t appreciate them as much. Getting that super-powerful rare drop in an MMO wouldn`t be very exciting if it happened more often than 1 in 10000 battles. And if every woman/man (depending on what you like) was smoking hot and wanted you, you would get bored with them.

So... yeah.

If this were the case, people would soon grow tired of it and life would go on as usual. So many of you aren`t seeming to consider that.

astrogirl - either that or they could just turn all escalators off, meaning people HAVE to walk down them. Saves a lot of manpower, and energy. :]

That indeed would solve many problems.
Another problem solver is the `deep` trashcan the same group of people did.

There is a flight of stairs leading down from the IMAX Theatre in the Science Museum of Minnesota that is set up like this.

One of my favorite parts of that museum actually...

I love the contrast between pre-piano stares and post in terms of usage. The escalator was packed before installation, but afterwards, it seemed everyone was taking the stairs.

I think the 66% thing might have been saying that 66% people took the stairs instead now that it was rigged...but that`s only because it`s novelty. If that was every staircase ever, the amount of people would wane a bit.
