Meat grinding escalator

Post by Umnir » Oct 25th, 2011, 12:33

I read today, that there has been proven cases of people getting stuck on escalators by their clothes (by shoelaces particularly) and being grind or strangled to death.

So I present thee question: by philosophy and wisdom provided by me in history of posty; how can one prevent such unpleasant death when being caught by murderous mechanic hell-machine?
LOL HI!

This is more like it!

I can't really imagine an escalator could kill a person, but if it's been said to occur, hm...

The first thought off the top of my head is that a good prevention would be to wear those cool future sneakers from Back to the Future 2. :D

Always carry a sharp knife and a pair of scissors?

Yeap, we got a winner! :lol:

But... so what now? :D
Perhaps more bizarre questions in future?

The real question is; is escalator death comparable to being crushed by a door, and is it a viable means of gathering spare parts?

Sounds like a trap that should be in ROTT.

But it's bit problematic, if you like to carry pointy knives as slipping them under clothing or laces is bit tricky..

There is the sideways traveling railcar in one of the Episode 1 maps where flames try to burn you sad you pass through.

I've wondered whether you can put in a leaking gas pipe so that Caleb can shoot it, causing a sheet of flame to trap enemies caught therein. Later, the video game Fallout 3 worked this idea into their level design, usually in the underground levels.
