You make a good point but for the sake of hilarity I am going to keep on assuming the dumbass was just wondering "ummm, why am I not going up... I want to go up dammit not down!!!"I wouldn't laugh at them, they were probably trying to stay out of the pile of dumb people at the bottom that wouldn't move back.
I want to bet that is how most of the injuries happened, people at the bottom mindlessly trying to go forward into a group of people coming down the escalator.
Wait, are you saying conservatives favor a "market economy" (I assume you mean free market) even partially because it helps them further their racist agenda?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).
I really really hope that my sarcasm meter is broken.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
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!
"Escalator temporarily stairs. Sorry for the convenience."Hey, it could have been worse. The escalator might have just stopped moving, trapping those poor people for hours!
You just gave me a brilliant idea,Why can't people record video horizontally? That's the bigger grievance here.
1/3rd of New Yorkers are Republican you bitch idiot, somehow i doubt 1/3rd of new yorkers are business owners.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.
I would be more than happy to help you out with the reviews.You just gave me a brilliant idea,
I'm going to design an app and call it "HD video!" and make it available for free.
It will have some cool snazzy windows and maybe a few filters or gamma corrections for people to fiddle with so they think they are actually doing something...but here's the real kicker:
It shuts off the camera if the phone is held vertically. It will not record video unless you turn the phone sidewise. That's really all it does. I will make it free, and market it to all hall and create so many fake reviews and ratings that everyone will eat it up blindly so that slowly, but surely, these idiot masses will unknowingly be prodded into making watchable video clips.
First, I would like to point out that the insults you throw around serve only to hurt your point and do nothing to help it.1/3rd of New Yorkers are Republican you bitch idiot, somehow i doubt 1/3rd of new yorkers are business owners.
Are you saying Northeast Business owners like higher taxes and regulations now? That's a laugh.
Even liberal NYC votes in Republican mayors. But that or your 'point' about governors has nothing to do with the larger point: There is tremendous racism in the market for hiring.
Again, you are a tremendous fucking retard who can't see the Forrest for the trees.
I've never been on one that reversed, but I have been on one that stopped dead, in an airport. A surprising number of people merely stood there. Highly aggravating when you're carrying luggage and trying to catch a connecting flight. I've also gone up the down to catch a child; it's not terribly difficult to out-walk an escalator with a bit of effort. But even though I've never been on one that suddenly reversed, it doesn't seem like the kind of thing to trigger my fight or flight reflex."Escalator temporarily stairs. Sorry for the convenience."
But you know, viewing through the safety of a youtube video is one thing. Sure, this looks stupid to us, but I wonder what happens when any random baller ATOTer, texting LOLcat pictures to their facebook chums, oblivious of the world around them as they happily ride the treadmill 1 story up to fatville is unexpectedly put in that situation? When typical crowd dynamics kicks in, the one or two people around them suddenly panics about something unexpected, how the crowd of oblivious numbskulls will react on instinct to the immediate and panicked response of the few around them. How their sudden panic will effect others, and so on.
the response to laugh at this is certainly warranted--it looks funny. But it's even funnier when you realize the very same capacity to react in such a "foolish" way is so hard-wired into our common reptilian brain that each and every one of us has the exact same capacity, and expectation, to react in that way when put in that situation.
After all, too look at this video is to see the human traits that survived millions of years and made us so alarmingly successful: fear, flight, survival. You all have it. Bask in it.
