Long before the internet, I spent my boyhood in a world without readily available answers to every stupid question.
That meant that my friends and I had to pursue bad ideas like these through trial and error.
What if we built a full-size Hot Wheels loop for bikes?
What if you stuck your greased hand in there?
What if we covered your head in ketchup and scared your mother?
What if we could get a cat to eat this Cheeto?
All of those questions led to real experiments with the results protected by a code of silence.
One “what if” that always eluded our brain trust had to do with the effects of gravity in an elevator. We had some theories that involved jumping but there wasn’t a single elevator in town to test a hypothesis.
I guess this elevator in Las Vegas gets a steady stream of riders who think like ten-year-old boys from the 1970s.
