Hey guys,

I was wondering what people thought about being in elevators. I had a strange Seinfeld like experience in an elevator today. First of all, the doors open and this elevator was packed to the rim, lo, that doesn't deter me, cause I had places to go and sh*t to do and I wasn't waiting for the next one.

I'm inside and so close to this this guy that I can smell his cologne. I think at first this isn't quite so bad, after about 10 seconds the smell makes me fell like I'm gonna hurl.

So I'm standing next to Don Juan and I notice this lady just staring off into the distance like she's in the night of living dead, and I think to myself what has happened to this person, where the life is just sucked out of her.

Then I notice the awkward silence that is so loud it sounds like a train coming right at you.

What is it with elevators?

I have a fear of heights. I'm OK with elevators except the glass ones. Those scare me half to death.

I like to face the people instead of the door - freaks people out!

When you jump out of a plane you "can't" see the ground per se, when you jump off a high dive for example that is a different story.

You can see yourself breaking your neck.

If you think you can squeeze one out silently a fart is an amazing thing in an elevator.
