  • Riding a Paternoster Lift
    I’ve never come across a paternoster lift in the wild. They kind of freak me out. Mostly because I’m a klutz and they offer many ways for me to lose an appendage or win a Darwin award. I appreciate the courage of the person who took this video who stayed... Read more »

    Life is Like This

  • Identical opposites?
