Member of Olympic sleeping team, gone rogue

What always flabbergasts me, is, why can’t they wait until they get home? Chosen to take a nap outside of Onyangcheon train station, the pavement is fortunately covered in recycled rubber, softening the asphalt.

No sense of decorum; a bench would be more appropriate, as he ‘lies’ not far from the escalators that lead up to the station. Though, it does makes a funny photograph.

How to use an escalator, well, no kidding

Eye-catching on first glance, superficial information only to be had. Or so it would seem to the casual eye.

The bullet points roughly translate to:

  • Hold onto the handrail
  • Stand inside of the yellow line marked on the step
  • Don’t run while on the escalator
  • Children and the elderly are to be accompanied
  • Take care of your clothing or belongings so that they don’t catch in the steps

It’s obvious that some people seldom ride escalators, not enough so that they’re a hazard to themselves and perhaps to others.

A search of google revealed that there is a rhyme to the reason for all the escalator safety posters.  People tripping up on the steps of course, but why are they taking tumbles on the moving stairway? The article couples escalator safety with the walk on the right veto, which according to the article, isn’t being taken all that well.
