<---was just giving the Brits a hard time. I have no problem with them :) Best friend is from Coventry- home of the Jag-yoo-ah-er (Jaguar). He moved to Americurr on a Thuz-deh on a ship loaded with toe-mah-toes while sitting on a chai(silent R) before arriving in Californier.

GuardinGnome, i don`t know about the rest of Europe, but the British actually have the least tooth decay of just about any other country. They don`t place as much importance on white teeth, however, so we Americans think they all look silly.

@ jerdboy

It also appears that everything yepimbored knows about the UK he learned from episodes of the SImpsons. I`m actually trying to figure out if some of what he said was intended as insult.

"You guys over there eat fish! And chips! Together!!!"

"Yes?"

"I`m just sayin..."

Your post is only referring to poo that

A) Happened 60 years ago, and 230 years go
B)None of us give a poo. Find 5 brits on this board who actually like/care about our sponging monarchy. You can insult Prince Charles all you want, but we were doing it first.

Regardless of where it is actually located (thx, inoue!), I`m of the personal opinion that the US could in fact use some of these... =)

Hey, "europeans"...yeah, we`re fat and lazy...so call your relatives over here and tell them to get the hell out. I`ve got 5 spotted dick (the food, not an adjective followed by a term for the male anatomy) eaters in my neighborhood and I`m sick and tired of hearing how all our American food is crap and everything back in England is so much better. Delta is ready when they are. P.S. Who kicked your ass in 1776, bailed you out in the 1940`s, and is usually the largest responder to world disasters? Anyone? Anyone? I thought so. Now go eat your fish and chips and take your "jabs" before you die of extreme ethnocentrism....and Prince Charles is a big-eared, dumbo punk!

I bet they were too poor fix the escalator that was there.. So they just used existing hand rails and put real stairs there.. Second a bunch of dumb ass people would stand there and be like "why isn`t this moving"..

I can`t believe I signed up just to comment on this...

this escalator can be found at a mall in the Philippines... and there are at least 2 of them! The ones heading up are the boring normal ones...

If it`s not in America, it`s probably because too many people are used to their escalators and you`d have a huge jam of people standing around the bottom waiting for it to turn on..

The worst part is, every time a group of blonds gets on it, no-one can get past them to get upstairs for 3 or 4 hours.

Yeah, we don`t have stairs here. We have mouth-propelled movement. We just suck up lard and it moves us through the vats of food.

Fo everyone claiming shopped "Please consider the following" look the reflection of the stairs in the glass on the sides, and what is more believable that some one took the time to shop the image, or that the escalator broke and it was just cheeper to convert it into stairs the replace the escalator.

thank you for considering the following

To quote Mitch Hedberg

"An escalator can never break: it can only become stairs. You would never see an Escalator Temporarily Out Of Order sign, just Escalator Temporarily Stairs. Sorry for the convenience."

Gortrok, there`s carpet in every mall I`ve ever been to. Maybe it`s just not a Europe thing.

Let me ask a question to everybody here screaming `shopped!`:

Would you have the motivation to go to a mall, take a picture of a random escalator, return home, do one hell of a shop on it, and then post it on the internet; WITHOUT EVEN WRITING YOUR NAME OR ANYTHING ON IT?

Okay maybe there are people out there without a job (or life) and find the time to do this. But the chances are just too slim. It`s way more likely that it`s just an old broken escalator, they turned into a staircase.

@ hindesite83:

Don`t think that`s carpet dude. Would you put carpet in a mall? o.O

And I only see one stair shorter than the others. It`s in the middle though; escalators wouldn`t have that. I think those are just regular stone stairs.

Not shopped, it`s just a former escalator that is now a set of stairs.

My opinion: The escalator is non-functioning, so to get people to quit asking questions and use it as stairs, they covered it in carpet. Notice one step shorter than the others - my first clue. Verdict: not shopped
