But how do I GET there?
Reminds me of the department stores that always have signs saying “Up escalator” or “Down escalator” when it should be obvious which way it’s going.
If it’s really the ones in ORD (looks like it), you should get the wider picture, because this is at the TOP of the escalator. So you got the “UP”, the arrow, but if you’re standing where the picture was taken, you can’t go up. If you’re downstairs you’ll know it goes up way before you see the sign.
It’s just so people on the top floor don’t walk towards it.
Now imagine when they do construction in the terminal, and they have to invert the escalators…
(yeah, I know, long, post, but the context beats the picture)
Again, it was quite a distance away from a set of stairs that you couldn’t see very well because it blocked by a support column. With my crappy cell phone camera, you wouldn’t’ve been able to see the sign very well if I had zoomed out. Plus it was fifteen, twenty feet up in the air, so I had to.
what about “down”??? which way is “down”??? and I’m having trouble with “left” and “right” too lol
For “down” please retract legs.
Hey, don’t knock this sign. It saves a lot of headaches. This is posted at the exit of the zero gravity chamber, so that when you come out all disoriented, you don’t end up upside down and fall on your head
Found at the exit of a zero gravity chamber. Without this sign, what would prevent you from stepping out into normal gravity upside down, and embarrassingly and painfully crashing down to the floor?
Thank God! I have such a terrible sense of direction.
Probably by using the escalator/elevator/etc that’s just been cropped out of shot on this heavily digital-zoomed picture?
It’s like you’re not even trying any more
Actually, no. It’s a good distance away from a set of stairs that’s blocked by a large support column. So yes, it has a legitimate purpose. And the heavily zoomed thing is because it’s high up (about fifteen feet) and my cell phone camera is crappy.
I think this sign is just saying they’re showing Disney’s Up in a theater ahead.
Dark Knight – lolz
Should I rate this UP?
How do you get there? Why, by attaching thousands of balloons to your house of course!
