Yeah, it was a pretty stupid thing to do. It probably was a weight thing, and they are lucky they weren't all hurt or killed.

I could never have done it. I am the biggest elevator baby I know. The building I used to work in had a faulty one--I got stuck on it one day. Not for very long, but I swear I have had the worst elevator dreams ever since. The recurring one is with me starting at the top floor, and as soon as the door closes, the elevator ceiling drops down about 2 feet or so, so it's just inches above my head. Then rather than going down, it starts to go diagonally through the building, with the car actually getting smaller and more triangular shaped on the way down. Freaks me out so bad. By the time I get to the bottom, the car is just big enough for about 2 people squatting, and I'm a wreck.

There is probably a hidden meaning in there somewhere.

I missed out on going up the Tower a couple of weekends ago.

Mine, too--and it goes pretty fast, and then slow again. It's really creepy. I am so claustrophobic now in my old age--stuff that didn't bother me when I was young is just intolerable now. When we went to the Majestic a couple weekends ago, the ceiling (although beautiful ) was looming large above my head, and thankfully we were on the end of the row--I kept having to make sure the exit was accessible. I didn't need to leave, but I damn sure wanted to make sure I could leave. I have issues.

You start with one green bar. Each green bar means your score is 50. When you hit 51 it goes to 2 bars. 101 reps will give you 3 bars and 151 gives you 4 bars, etc.

You know I've said before I hadn't been in the Majestic since I was a kid . But actually I did go in there about 20-25 yrs. ago. There was a lady in there who new the history of the bldg. pretty well. The ceiling tiles over the walking area behind the seating section were imported from Spain. Forgot how many floors there are but found out recently that the founder of Nix Hospital and his family lived in the penthouse at one time. Most likely shortly after it was built in 1929. BTW, they had a small fire upstairs while I was there.

The Majestic was not the best venue for Ron White, IMO. The acoustics were horrible at times, but he's hilarious anyway. I actually had better seats for that show than I had when I saw the Shaolin Monks there. And I should have done that in reverse! The monks looked like ants from the upper level.

I have not been to The Majestic yet, but I will be there this Saturday with some friends to see 1964 The Tribute. I have not a clue where our seats are, but it should be a lot of fun nonetheless.

Oh, the Majestic is um, .......majestic! Seriously, it's gorgeous. I'm sure if it's a musical event there will not be a bad seat in the house. Enjoy!

Are you sure it was the acoustics and not Ron White slurring his words? We saw him in Tennessee and the man never set his drink down. Love him though - very funny.

Yeah, he slurred but it's mostly the way he puts the mike almost into his mouth while he's drinking, smoking, and trying to finish the punch line.

Sometimes I think he can't possibly drink as much as he wants us to believe, at least on stage anyway. But he may just be a high-functioning drunk.
