i'm on the 3rd floor, we've got an elevator a lot of ppl take, and i almost always walk unless i'm carrying something big or really really really exhausted. plus, as the enviromental group on campus has gone to all the elevators posting signs about how much co2 they release, elevators are bad for the environment!
I virtually run down the stairs. When i did it for the first time in a long time - first day back from memory - i was shaky as. But i'm good now.

I walk up to about the 5th floor, when necessary. Mainly because the lifts get so congested and we always want to kill the bastards who use the lifts to go up just one or two floors. Walk, you lazy prick.

here they have taken all pseudoephadrine products off the market and replaced them with substitues, and some chemists have registrars for the pain killers with sedatives in them , but i know who does and who doesnt.

And I just noticed down in the options, you can turn off "autormatically retrieve titles from external links".
yeah rickrolling isn't much of a prank at all, not like tubgirl or goatsee uke:

i think i'll leave it on, gives you an idea of what the link is and you can mouse over the link for the url to show up in the status bar

For the record, I already knew Gloria, Tomorrow, and October, and I freakin' love THOSE songs. But I believe it was on the strength of those three alone that U2 ever got the opportunity to make a third album, because JESUS, te rest

we've got a small suburban campus, i'm in the tallest building at 4 stories!!

but the urban campuses i've seen, like this one in ny, have interesting systems. this building i went to in ny, you took an escalator from the lobby (cause the rest of the building's first floor i think they'd rented for storefront revenue) to the 2nd floor. from there the elevators stopped every 5 floors and there were escalators in between

other systems have local and express elevators in office buildings, where you go up to a "sky lobby"

and there's new smart elevators where you go to a box and tell it what floor you want and it tells you which elevator to minimize stops

and ones that are 2 stories

<is kinda an elevator nerd, apparently
