Word of the day: paternoster
I wish I hadn't learned about this – I have enough elevator-themed nightmares as it is.
Today, in many countries the construction of new paternosters is no longer allowed because of the high risk of accidents (people tripping or falling over when trying to enter or alight). Five people were killed by paternosters from 1970 to 1993. The elderly, the handicapped and children are the most in danger of being crushed. – Wikipedia
