Ducks on an Escalator
Posted February 7, 2008
One of my great pet peeves is when able-bodied people "ride" an escalator. The escalator operates on the same theory as the moving sidewalk -- it's to speed your trip between floors. You should step on the escalator and continue to walk up or down the stairs. It's not a ride.
These poor ducks at a mall (?) understand this concept, but the physics just aren't working for them.
