    I`m imagining this happen in super slow motion with "O, Fortuna" playing over the whole thing and the camera angle changing every few seconds.

    I can`t imagine being on an escalator when it stops. You might be stuck on it for hours while they fix it. D:

    .... seems this is needed:

    1. a escalator that often fails
    2. lots of children that use it

    Don`t mean to be a buzz-kill (yeah, I do) LOL

    In our ultra-educated USA society, I think there`s a translation in order, such that he meant earthquate...not escalator LOL

    Dang, at least I hope so LOL

    Oh my god, nooo. The dupont circle metro escalator is so scary. It`s really really long and steep. Seriously, youtube it. I remember I was in DC during the 4th of july and they turned it off after, and it took 20 minutes just to get down it because there were so many people and you start to kind of go crazy because its just step after step...after step...trying not...to trip. haha

    I imagine that if the escalator stopped suddenly, kids and seniors, and otherwise disabled people, might fall over. I wouldn`t walk over them though, I would help them up. That guy is just an non-nice individual...

    Take a card, cover one half of his face at a time. Right side revealed is the self absorbed wienie who got freaked cuz life interrupted. Left side revealed is the guy who will walk over anyone at any time to appease "wienie" side.
    This is an especially important right/left comparison tool to dissect politicians.

    There is one metro stop in DC that has an extremely long escalator ride. Like, I get vertigo when I look up because the passage that it runs through is so long. On the day of the Marine Corp Marathon, they stopped that escalator and I had to walk all the way up it. My legs felt dead at the end of that. I`m not in great shape, but my friends who are in better shape also found themselves with muscular fatigue at the end.

    @Morlaboborla: Yes, that the one! One of the Youtube videos pointed out that when you look up it, it looks like the escalator is moving flat across the ground, and that exactly the feeling I get when I look up it. It`s nearly made me fall backward a couple of times.

    my worst story is when I was three years old i was at Sears...I was wearing a big purple winter coat with those plastic balls on the ends of the strings on the hood. Well, I had never used an escalator before, and I was scared so my mom carried me up but then she was like "your a big girl you should go down on your own" so I got on and fell. Those little plastic balls somehow got caught under the escalator and as I was being carried down I was being choked.
