Ahh, the pessimists and cynics of Waterloo rear their heads.Never bash someone else's effort to do good.
Probably be more effective if the arrows pointed down the stairs.
I thought the stairs were a safe-zone and we weren't supposed to use them?
1. I sure as hell can bash their effort if it's a fucking waste of time and paper to put these signs up.Do you really think they are helping anyone by telling them to take the stairs? Do you really think stair use vs. elevator use counts as a 'healthy lifestyle choice?''Never bash someone else's effort to do good' are you really that fucking naive....
Walking up and down stairs for twenty minutes a day can be more effective exercise than a similar length of jogging on a treadmill. Walking up a significant amount of stairs is exercise, and it does count as a healthy lifestyle choice. Have you ever walked up 36 flights of stairs? Your calves fucking kill the next day.
How many people only take the elevators here, anyway? (Disabled people excluded, obviously)
@4: Actually, yes, stair use is definitely a better choice than elevator use (in many cases).@6: Quite a few actually, you'd be surprised.
I'm not tall enough to use stairs.
Stairs are for peasants.
^^Stares are for pheasants.
Simple rules:1) Lower than 4 sets of stairs - TAKE STAIRS2) Greater than 4 sets - ELEVATOR3) When coming down - ALWAYS STAIRS (especially in DP - faster and not tiring at all)4) Disable - ALWAYS ELEVATORProblem solved. By the way, it's funny to see those signs while I take the elevator up to the 7th or 8th floor every day.
agree with 11 completely.
@5: Not can. Is.If you're a girl... it helps shape your rear as well.
@11: Going down is more taxing than going up. Just FYI.
yeah #11 eccentric only load is much rougher on the knees

@11 u missed = to 4 sets of stairs...
Everyone already knows how to get exercise. What we really need is a campaign telling people that they are fat.
@4, nobody likes a pessimist. Enjoy a miserable lonely life, hating everything.
Also, 4, you probably only hate this campaign because it makes you feel like a lazy dickwad.
