You can see people panicking and even jumping on the dividers when an escalator in NJ starts going in reverse. Oh My God. The Humanity!!!You know what they call an up escalator going in reverse? A down escalator. Apparently they never rode one going down before. Maybe they were scared because it wasn’t going the direction they were looking. Turning around must be a lost art. I wonder what these people would do in an elevator that was supposed to be going up went down a floor?

Do the math.

Say about 20 People weighing anywhere from 100 to 300 pounds all of a sudden piling on top of each other.

At least one woman got trampled pretty good.

It's not just that. Imagine you're on the escalator near the bottom. You've run out of space to move down the escalator, but the step you're standing on is still moving down. It's like having the rug pulled out from under you, so you fall down. From there, it would be like knocking over bowling pins. This is happening while you're laying on moving stairs.

1) you fall down because your body can't move with the ground you're standing on
2) other people fall on top of you while you're laying on an escalator (metal stairs with square corners)
3) stupid fucks still refuse to move because they're cunts

Watch the video in full screen. People are moving off the end of the escalator with no problems.

Why am I not surprised that it happened at a subway station. Where else are you going to find sheep with lower IQs or less patience?

Why can't people record video horizontally? That's the bigger grievance here.

My sig is a critique on free markets. Aren't republicans pro-free markets? The only stupid one is you.

Yes, clearly the guy who started the 'ZOMG GOOGLE'S TRYING TO DESTROY CHRISTMAS BY SAYING 'HAPPY HOLIDAYS'' should really be commenting. Also, LOL @ you trying to get mods to lock the thread because we made you look like a bitch.

republicans definitely arent pro-free market, which of their policies supports the free market. They support big government and corporatism like the democrats along with endless wars.

You are one of the biggest hypocrites on this forum, you benefit from Capitalism yet you attack it constantly.

As for the Christmas thread the only bitch was you

The voters sure are free market supporters. It's funny you're too stupid to extrapolate the fact that new york capitalists probably aren't 'liberals' and the business owners in conservatives states are a helluva lot more racist.

Also, "PLEASE CLOSE MY THREAD :'(" -Incorruptible

Saying 'you're stupid' is not a rebuttal and only proves your own stupidity. Sorry that you can't seem to work out semi-complex ideas and bring them to their own logical conclusion.

Ok, how about the fact that you think the majority of business owners in the largely Democratic state of NY are Conservatives? You fail there, but let’s give you the benefit of the doubt. Now you have to assume that people are voting for Republican Politicians because of the hiring practices of some NY City Business Owners. The stupidity is overwhelming.

"Largely Democratic" != No Republicans, are you stupid you don't realize New York votesin republican politicans to office? Next you're going to tell me those business owners are pro-raising taxes.

Yes, the stupidity is overwhelming... YOUR stupidity that is.

But the larger point, the point you're obviously missing, Matt (because you're a fucking retard of the highest order) is that there is massive racism in employment all over in a market economy and that's why conservatives FAVOR it. You're not seeing the forest for the trees (because you're a fucking retard).

This was an attempt by NJ state government to get people to lose weight - (see - hamster wheels).

Failed miserably as 5 were injured and the longest people walked without going anywhere was 15 seconds. Society needs to be a bit dumber before this succeeds and we can cure all obesity.

Largely does not equal total you blubbering asshat.

The last Republican President they voted for was 28 years ago and had only a single term Republican Governor since 1974. But go on, keep doing what you have to do to convince yourself that NY Business Owners are Republicans.

It's funny, because there is something that is just as (if not more) stupid as the people in the video. Whom you ask? The people that deem this worthy of reporting on :rolleyes:

Thank you liberal media, PLEASE CONTINUE TO FEED US THE RED PILL THAT WE NEED TO FEAR THE ESCALATORS. EVIL ESCALATORS. BE ON THE LOOKOUT!
