    Happily I have never had an accident in the escalator, it looked bad... Strange, I have never heard about anybody having one either.

    When I was in Vegas, one of the elevators was broken. Another guy came up and showed me how to go up an escalator and it was surprisingly easy.

    I'm glad I didn't have to go down though.
    Don't anthropomorphise computers. They hate that.

    You do it with your back first and take care in the bottom of the escalator, lean forward so you don't go on your back. The only bad thing is that sometimes it is an edge in the bottom so I am always careful in a escalator I haven't taken before.

    LOL, I have gone on my back in the bottom more than once but I still use it.

    Looks like a great way to get another SCI.

    I would only try this with a spotter myself.

    I have been taught at the rehab, so it is not any wild thing I have found out myself

    Wow that gotta hurt, hope he was ok. He should of held on LOL.
    I like the dreams of the future better than the history of the past, so one way to get the most out of life is to look at it as an adventure.
