Music to My Ears

When presented with a choice, like at the airport and the Dollar Store at Cornwall Centre, I always opt for the stairs over the escalator. It’s like a mini-stairmaster workout so it’s good for my health. Plus escalators are a huge energy drain to operate.

Here’s a great idea that engineers in Sweden came up with to entice more people to take the stairs at a subway station.

  1. “I like an escalator because an escalator can never break, it can only become stairs. There would never be an escalator temporarily out of order sign, only an ‘Escalator Temporarily Stairs’. Sorry for the convenience – we apologize for the fact that you can still get up there.” – Mitch Hedberg
