    Why blame the innocent escalator for the stupidity of the drunk?

    There's an escalator in the mall I just drove by yesterday.
    I'm ok though.

    I use to race a co-worker with me running up the down one. Still beat his fat ass with seconds to spare.

    I live in California, which is only two states away... and last week I took some stairs, which could have been an escalator, and I've fallen down from drinking too much, but not since around 23 years old.

    If was still 23 years old, and was falling down drunk, and had taken those same stairs but they had instead been an escalator, and I was wearing a sweatshirt... I could have been killed.

    It really puts everything in perspective.

    No thanks. I've lived through that horror. Had the power go out when I was halfway up. We were stranded there for two hours until they restored power. Luckily I had a granola bar and a bottle of water in my backpack.

    That's why I always carry a satellite phone, a wind/waterproof lighter, and a Leatherman while walking around in multi-story shopping malls. You never know.

    Pretty funny, although at 0:23 you can see why maybe all women should be required to walk the wrong way on an escalator. There's definitely a contrast there.

    Edit: Hell it's right there in the preview.

    REI was on the second story and the escalator wasn't working. The dude from 127 Hours had it easy.

    ALWAYS carry your bug out bag with you. You never know when you have to bug out.

    I left my bug out bag in my trunk once... on the roof of a parking garage in 100 degree weather! I broke a light sweat running out to get it when the lights flickered in Hot Topic. I'm pretty sure that's a sign of heat stroke. Never again.

    I think they should set up sobriety check points at all escalators.

    If it saves just 1 life....
