View Poll Results: Infinitely falling escalator - possible or not?
Yes. It's a simple matter of physics. 7 30.43%
No. Eventually random entropy or whatever would deposit the person at the top or the bottom. 10 43.48%
It depends on the latitude of the escalator location. 1 4.35%
I think they're all like that already. 1 4.35%
I don't know enough about escalators and physics to make the call. 4 17.39%

Question about escalators.

I was going down an enormous escalator today, and started wondering. Is it possible to design an escalator that could cause a person to fall down it infinitely if they lost their footing? And if so,could such a design happen accidentally? Set aside the ability to cut power in this scenario, or interfere by sending a second person onto the escalator for a rescue.

They'd fall for a while but eventually they'd get stuck along the side and get pushed up to the top.

All I know is that escalators never really break down, they just become stairs.

What if the escalator was wide, and the steps curved up at either end to keep a falling person in the middle?

Escalators. Kill as many people per year as terrorists in the United States. An ultimate danger to society. Should be banned and not allowed in our country

You would escalate through the center of the Earth and end up in China.

Read a story about a lady in China a few months ago that fell thru the landing of an escalator going up. The platform at the top gave way or something.

Evidently it kept running and chewed her up into pieces.

I think I've shared this story.

A year or so ago I was working a conference. As I was tearing down and leaving I found myself in a crowd of yammering people at the top of an escalator while pushing a cart piled with totes filled with materials...pens, pads of paper, candy dishes, they typical conference items..
Something happens, I stumble...time goes. Into slow motion as my unsecured totes begin to tumble and rumble and bumble...loudly. Hundreds of people are watching.

I know they didn't fall for infinity as I began to leap down to unpile the clog that was sure to slug the escalator.....but it sure as hell felt like forever....and the walk of shame after would have broken a lesser man.
