    Who the hell actually stops on an escalator? Unless you`re dragging something, you need to keep walking.

    It`s probably for people with spine injuries that can`t wal down stairs. I have a kid at my school that can walk (but with a limp) but he has to take the disabled elevator. Sorry to ruin the joke =P

    It`s for disabled people, otherwise they will get sued. Of course... gradual inclines work better.

    TGhey should just take my idea and murder every human that displays signs of weakness, thin out the heard...make them stronger...smarter. But that`s just me.

    Carry on!

    "It`s for disabled people, otherwise they will get sued. "

    There are stairs once you get off the escalator.

    At least thats what the desciption says.

    I would, but I`m too tired to do it today. Maybe I can hire someone to do it.

    @madest: 9 times out of 10 there are stairs next to escalators, so if you want to walk down the stairs, USE THE F*CKING STAIRS.

    You spelled "herd" incorrectly. That is a sign of mental weakness. Please report to the nearest abattoir - and take with you anyone who had to look up the word "abattoir".

    It`s all about placement. If the stairs were on the inside, people would be taking those instead.

    I am thinking the guy posing for and filming this did so just because it was the "world`s smallest".

    It`s also going down. WTF? I could easily jump that distance.

    This thing is so useless that I see it as art.

    Unfortunately there is an escalator this high in Ikebukuro station, Tokyo as well. >< However, in Tokyo you see most people just using the stairs and only old people or people carrying heavy luggage use the escalator. I was glad it was there, as I also had a heavy suitcase and most Japanese stations don`t have escalators at all. Not even the ones where you have to climb up 50 flights of stairs to get outside. ><

    Very sure you are incorrect.

    there`s one in Canada too, but I`m guessing it`s because all the Americans are coming up here! Don`t worry, once you guys have finished pooting the bed there will always be room for our southern neighbors :)
