TRAPPED IN AN ELEVATOR FOR 41 HOURS

The longest smoke break of Nicholas White’s life began at around eleven o’clock on a Friday night in October, 1999. White, a thirty-four-year-old production manager at Business Week, working late on a special supplement, had just watched the Braves beat the Mets on a television in the office pantry. Now he wanted a cigarette. He told a colleague he’d be right back and, leaving behind his jacket, headed downstairs.

The magazine’s offices were on the forty-third floor of the McGraw-Hill Building, an unadorned tower added to Rockefeller Center in 1972. When White finished his cigarette, he returned to the lobby and, waved along by a janitor buffing the terrazzo floors, got into Car No. 30 and pressed the button marked 43. The car accelerated. It was an express elevator, with no stops below the thirty-ninth floor, and the building was deserted. But after a moment White felt a jolt. The lights went out and immediately flashed on again. And then the elevator stopped.

The control panel made a beep, and White waited a moment, expecting a voice to offer information or instructions. None came. He pressed the intercom button, but there was no response. He hit it again, and then began pacing around the elevator. After a time, he pressed the emergency button, setting off an alarm bell, mounted on the roof of the elevator car, but he could tell that its range was limited. Still, he rang it a few more times and eventually pulled the button out, so that the alarm was continuous. Some time passed, although he was not sure how much, because he had no watch or cell phone. He occupied himself with thoughts of remaining calm and decided that he’d better not do anything drastic, because, whatever the malfunction, he thought it unwise to jostle the car, and because he wanted to be (as he thought, chuckling to himself) a model trapped employee. He hoped, once someone came to get him, to appear calm and collected. He did not want to be scolded for endangering himself or harming company property. Nor did he want to be caught smoking, should the doors suddenly open, so he didn’t touch his cigarettes. He still had three, plus two Rolaids, which he worried might dehydrate him, so he left them alone. As the emergency bell rang and rang, he began to fear that it might somehow—electricity? friction? heat?—start a fire. Recently, there had been a small fire in the building, rendering the elevators unusable. The Business Week staff had walked down forty-three stories. He also began hearing unlikely oscillations in the ringing: aural hallucinations. Before long, he began to contemplate death.

Ask a vertical-transportation-industry professional to recall an episode of an elevator in free fall—the cab plummeting in the shaftway, frayed rope ends trailing in the dark—and he will say that he can think of only one. That would be the Empire State Building incident of 1945, in which a B-25 bomber pilot made a wrong turn in the fog and crashed into the seventy-ninth floor, snapping the hoist and safety cables of two elevators. Both of them plunged to the bottom of the shaft. One of them fell from the seventy-fifth floor with a woman aboard—an elevator operator. (The operator of the other one had stepped out for a cigarette.) By the time the car crashed into the buffer in the pit (a hydraulic truncheon designed to be a cushion of last resort), a thousand feet of cable had piled up beneath it, serving as a kind of spring. A pillow of air pressure, as the speeding car compressed the air in the shaft, may have helped ease the impact as well. Still, the landing was not soft. The car’s walls buckled, and steel debris tore up through the floor. It was the woman’s good fortune to be cowering in a corner when the car hit. She was severely injured but alive.

Traction elevators—the ones hanging from ropes, as opposed to dumbwaiters, or mining elevators, or those lifted by hydraulic pumps—are typically borne aloft by six or eight hoist cables, each of which, according to the national elevator-safety code (and the code determines all), is capable on its own of supporting the full load of the elevator plus twenty-five per cent more weight. Another line, the governor cable, is connected to a device that detects if the elevator car is descending at a rate twenty-five per cent faster than its maximum designed speed. If that happens, the device trips the safeties, bronze shoes that run along vertical rails in the shaft. These brakes are designed to stop the car quickly, but not so abruptly as to cause injury. They work. This is why free falling, at least, is so rare.

Still, elevator lore has its share of horrors: strandings, manglings, fires, drownings, decapitations. An estimated two hundred people were killed in elevators at the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001—some probably in free-fall plunges, but many by fire, smoke, or entrapment and subsequent structural collapse. The elevator industry likes to insist that, short of airplane rammings, most accidents are the result of human error, of passengers or workers doing things they should not. Trying to run in through closing doors is asking for trouble; so is climbing up into an elevator car, or down out of one, when it is stuck between floors, or letting a piece of equipment get lodged in the brake, as happened to a service elevator at 5 Times Square, in Manhattan, four years ago, causing the counterweight to plummet (the counterweight, which aids an elevator’s rise and slows its descent, is typically forty per cent heavier than an empty car) and the elevator to shoot up, at sixty miles an hour, into the beams at the top of the shaft, killing the attendant inside. Loading up an empty elevator car with discarded Christmas trees, pressing the button for the top floor, then throwing in a match, so that by the time the car reaches the top it is ablaze with heat so intense that the alloy (called “babbitt”) connecting the cables to the car melts, and the car, a fireball now, plunges into the pit: this practice, apparently popular in New York City housing projects, is inadvisable.

28.) No One Contacted Canada About NAFTA – LIAR, the Candian Government issued the names and a memo of the conversation your campaign had with them.

29.) I Am Tough On Terrorism – LIAR, you missed the Iran Resolution vote on terrorism and your good friend Ali Abunimah supports the destruction of Israel.

45.) I Have Always Been Against Iraq – LIAR, you weren’t in office to vote against it AND you have voted to fund it every single time, unlike Kucinich, who seems to be out gutting you Obama. You also seem to be stepping back from your departure date – AGAIN.

46.) I Have Always Supported Universal Health Care – LIAR, your plan leaves us all to pay the 15,000,000 who don’t have to buy it.

Forbidden Kingdom

It seems that age has had no ill effect on the success of THE FORBIDDEN KINGDOM stars Jackie Chan and Jet Li. Their $70 million film beat expectations and the competition in its opening weekend, earning $20.9 million according to studio estimates. This is the biggest opening ever for a martial arts movie in the U.S.

This is the biggest opening for a Jackie Chan film outside of his RUSH HOUR series and the biggest for Jet Li since LETHAL WEAPON 4. Jet Li’s FEARLESS was the last major martial arts movie released and it grossed $10.6 million in its opening weekend.

FORGETTING SARAH MARSHALL, a rated-R romantic comedy from SUPERBAD producer Judd Apatow came in a close second with $17.3 million.

Your so gay, and you don’t even like boys/PENIS lol

Entertainment, MUSIC & VIDEO Comments Off on Your so gay, and you don’t even like boys/PENIS lol

From Youtube:

Official music video for hit song Ur So Gay by Katy Perry. Directed by Walter May.
http://www.katyperry.com
http://www.myspace.com/katyperry
The video is about her EX-BOYFRIEND… So she’s making fun of HIM, not gay people, not barbies, not anything else : just him…
get offended if you want but go and comment on someone else’s video. i’m tired of people who don’t take this humour and make 3mile-long rants about this song, but passively allow a lot more important things.
i just don’t want to start debates here. cause it’s not the place. not cause i’m not open minded.
the thing is i don’t agree with the fact that some words are misused just because “things evolve” cause it leads to make important things seem banal… but well.
THIS is “just a song”, “just a video”, “just a rant about 1 particular person”, “just a big joke”. and doesn’t need to be the support/reason of a pro-homosexual campain.

to be honest, i myself never use the word “gay” to talk about an homosexual…
And yes, it’s “my” video, i do what i want with your comments. i don’t delete all of them, certainly NOT all the negative ones, just the ones starting never ending useless debates cause youtube is not a place for that.
or anyway THIS video is not.

That nobody understands you

I’m so angry cause you’d rather MySpace instead
I can’t believe I fell in love with someone that wears more makeup than…

(CHORUS)
You’re so gay and you don’t even like boys

(BRIDGE)
You walk around like you’re oh so debonair

I wish you would just be real with me

(CHORUS)

Madonna does the hoovering…

Entertainment, Funny, MUSIC & VIDEO Comments Off on Madonna does the hoovering…

Often’s the time I’ve pondered the domestic set-up of celebs.

Who picks up the pubes from the bathroom floor in the TomKat house? Who scrapes off the hard bits of porridge after breakfast in the Paltrow/Martin kitchen?

And who gets vaccuume duty in the Ciccone/Ritchey mansion?Here’s your answer in visual form: Madonna does the hoovering, it seems!

A video has turned up on YouTube showing the Material Girl getting into some heavy housekeeping…

See the vid after the jump:

WITH £450 million in the bank you’d think Madonna could afford at least a cleaner – but apparently not.
The  49-year-old Queen of Pop has posted a hilarious video of herself on youtube hovering the floors on the set of her latest music video.

Wearing a little black dress, knee high boots and lots of bling she’s stomps on the off button and says:  “As you can see everyone’s f**ked off and I’ve got to do all the cleaning myself.

“A woman’s work is never done. Cleanliness is next to godliness.”

The four-minute clip  seems to be a sarcastic swipe at  web users for making their own videos to her music.  Meanwhile Madge was back on mother duty last night as she took her adopted son David Banda out to celebrity restaurant San Lorenzo.

Robot completes Marathon – six days late – almost 120 hours after setting off.

Fundraiser Lloyd Scott, who was inside the 9ft 3” costume, crossed the finishing line in the Mall just before 9am this morning where he was greeted by England and Wasps rugby player James Haskell.

Exhausted after spending almost five days walking on specially built stilts inside the 70lb costume, Scott said: “I’m really pleased to have reached the finishing line and am really grateful to the people of London who have supported me ever step of the way.

“The fact that the London Marathon can accommodate the world’s elite runners and charity fundraisers like me means it’s the best in the world.”

Scott, 46, from Rainham, Essex, raised more than £20,000 for the Autism Trust.

He added: “I chose the robot outfit because there is a view that people with autism live this robotic existence but actually they can flourish with a little bit of help.”

And despite earning a well-deserved rest, the father-of-three is already planning his next charity raising stunt.

He said: “My calves are screaming in agony because no matter how much you train, nothing prepares you for covering 26 miles on stilts dressed as a robot.

“I might do a few half marathons in the costume and then next year we’re planning something really big which involves a dinosaur so watch this space.”

The former firefighter and leukaemia slept in fire stations en route during the walk.

He has raised more than £5 million for charity through various fundraising challenges including completing the London and New York marathons wearing a deep sea diving suit, an underwater marathon in Loch Ness and cycling from Perth to Sydney on a Penny Farthing.

GHD ad

Ghd ad: the ASA ruled it was likely to cause offence

A TV ad campaign featuring lingerie-clad women praying for beautiful hair has been banned by the advertising watchdog because it might offend Christians.

The series of three TV ads, created by ad agency TBWA Manchester for beauty firm ghd, had an overall religious theme using the strapline “Ghd. A new religion for hair”.

Ghd’s ads showed scantily-clad women in various positions, such as lying on a bed, while looking upwards with their hands clasped as if in prayer. Some had objects that looked like votive candles and rosary beads.

Viewers could hear the thoughts of each of the women, in various languages including English, which centred on having great hair.

One woman was thinking “May my new curls make her feel choked with jealousy”, while another was saying to herself “May my flirty flicks puncture the heart of every man I see”. At the end of each ad an endline ran: “Thy will be done”.

The Advertising Standards Authority received a total of 23 complaints, including one from the Archdeacon of Liverpool, objecting that the ads were offensive to the Christian faith.

The complaints particularly highlighted the use of the phrase from the Lord’s Prayer and the depiction of the letter “t” as a cross in “thy”.

The ASA said that while previous ghd campaigns did not “mock” faith or belief, the new ads went further with the women appearing to be praying while being erotic.

The ad watchdog decided to ban the ad because the eroticised images in conjunction with religious symbols and the phrase “Thy will be done”, as well as the letter “t” as the cross of Jesus, were likely to cause serious offence, particularly to Christians.

Martin Penny, the managing director of ghd, said that the ban was perplexing, adding that the company had used the phrase “a new religion for hair” for seven years with little problem.

“We have a loyal following of women and the ads were, in fact, produced by an all-female creative team,” he said. “It has nothing to do with religion really, if it was more people would have complained.

“There are far more erotic things in Nuts or on Page 3 if that’s what people like. It is a fashion ad which is tasteful and sensitive. The ASA seem to be frightened of their own shadow.”

101. Never forget the kiss goodnight. And always remember to say, “Sweet dreams.”
102. Groom your spouse. Ask to brush your wife’s hair when she gets out of the shower. Shave your husband’s face.
103. A Short Story – You know the guys that go around in restaurants and bars with the basket of roses selling them? My husband sought him out one evening before coming home from work, bought the entire basket of roses, and left them on my doorstep, then called me and told me to go to the front door! That was so romantic!
104. Be waiting at your mates car when they get off work, out of the beauty salon, get done grocery shopping…be creative!
105. Buy 11 real roses and one fake one…leave a note that says I’ll love you until the last rose dies… -Mark Ansley
106. Kiss your mate on their forehead.
107. While your lifemate is out. Put a bag of Hershey hugs on the door knob. Put rose peddles mixed with Hershey kisses on the floor leading to the bathroom with lights off. Candles for your light lined up all the way to the bathroom also. Two dozen roses lined all over the bathtub. With a card in plain view. And on the card write ” Now that I have hugged u before u walked in the door, kissed the ground that you walk on, and showered you with roses. Will you be mine 4-ever.” – Joseph Wade Stepp
108. I am in the military so for anyone that has a long distant relationship with their spouse. They can create a jewelry box, you can buy all you need at an inexpensive gift shop store, and decorate it with the things she likes to send you in her letter or emails, for example hearts and stars and stick them all over the box. Then inside the box you can write a thought for every day of what you remember as your great memories with her in your relationship, or things you like about her, reasons why you fell in love with her or even things you want to plan with her for the future. Then tell her when she receives this magic box that when ever she feels lonely like me when I am not with her or thinks of what I am thinking about throughout the day, she can open the box and be reminded that she is all I am thinking about.
109. Take a latex balloon (not inflated) and fill it with some confetti, a love note to your lifemate and a photo of yourself. Take the balloon to a balloon shop and have them fill it with helium while the items are still in the balloon. Attach a pin and a note that says; “Please pop” to the balloon string. Leave the balloon by your lifemate’s bedside before he/she wakes up in the morning. My husband really enjoyed this romantic action.
110. Post a Lovenote to her, even if she is with you, using her office/house address or care off her friend’s postal address.
