Imagine yourself in a shaky elevator... bits of metal falling away from it's bottom, and the only other passenger is:

:lol: :lol: :lol:

That saying was always a puzzle for me too. I don't know if puppies in elevator are particulary happy, but then again I never saw a puppy in elevator so maybe they are. But it's a cute thing to say, specially on english.

It's actually a common misconception that elevators can fall. It's actually pretty much impossible for an elevator to fall down an elevator shaft. They have breaks on the sides that will stop the elevator if it reaches a certain speed. So you're perfectly safe from plumetting to your death...


...of course, if the counterweight snaps, the elevator will shoot upwards like a rocket and most likely crush you like a soda can against the ceiling.

But hey, you can't fall.

This topic reminds me of something ridiculous, Someone was banned from collegeconfidential.com for use of the word "heck".

See, a smart man actually sets the elevator to go down, that way inertion helps him.
Although, it depends on a position, I guess.
