The escalator was invented by James Reno and installed as an amusement ride at Coney Island in 1897. It was then further developed by the Otis Elevator Company by Charles Seeberger. In 1921, the Reno and Seeburger designs were merged into the escalator we know and love today and presumably the speed of escalators is based upon this model. The usual speed is 3 km/h. They can be rigged to go faster but maintain a standard speed, I assume this is due to liability concerns in the case of a slip and fall upon the moving staircase.

Dear Kaidy Mae,

Those escalators to which you refer are, in fact, known, in industry parlance, as "movators".

Love,

Dear Bouche,

Isn't Magnetic Hill an optical illusion? If so, can you please explain it to me?

Thanks.

Dear c-towns,

Are "Anonymous Users" the guys I see in the park smoking pot and wearing ski masks?

theres a megnetic hill, or haunted hill, here in ontario to, on snake rd i think it is, maybe king rd? some rd going into waterdown. apparently, this is from creepy canada now, apparently a school bus full of kids died on said hill, and now, if you throw your car in neutral, itll roll up the hill, ie magnetic hill, but what they say really causes it is the ghosts of the kids pushing you, even to the extent of putting babypowder on your bumper and itll be covered in little dead kids handprints..... creepy eh
