Perhaps their fundamental design flaws were completely hidden by their superficial design flaws.

A holocaust joke at 10 in the morning?

Bravo, Fark. I applaud your dedication to dark comedy.

That movie took place in Japan? Guess it was before the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor.

They suspect the brakes, but the elevator was ascending? Were counterweights pulling it up, or what?

What about an array? They are easier to work with.

Mmm...you gotta be careful with that. First, you have disorder, then you have a list, then an array...before you know it, you have a matrix and a blue pill habit.

Ah, Schindler's Lift.

That joke was funny when I first heard it 20 years ago.

/Fark: 1990s humor, today

I work in construction and the first time I called Schindler I asked for a list. I imagine thats 50% of their calls.

It was after lunch time here, so I was at my highest holocaust-joke-appreciating potential.

I can't find now, but I saw a good shoop on Something Awful several years ago that would be great for this thread.

Congratulations on the purchase of your new Schindler Elevator. We hope that you will find every need met with our state of the art vertical transportation system.

Our many very intelligent scientists have designed your elevator to include over 20 safety features that our competitors cannot imagine. Your safety is paramount in a Schindler Elevator. There are over 10 different patented safety braking systems on each unit. These systems were tested repeatedly and with many different test subjects.

Beyond the design, we also care about quality. Only the highest manufacturing standards were used to produce your elevator. Our technicians worked 18 - 20 hours a day to ensure your elevator is constructed to exacting standards. Our System Supervisors (SS) ensure that not shortcuts were taken in the manufacture of your elevator.

Finally, please examine the fine detail on your new elevator. As if it were polished by the hands of numerous ten years old children, the interior is brought up to a highly shined and meticulously clean interior.

Everyone here at Schindler Elevator hope that you will enjoy your new elevator. Your happiness is paramount to all the happy workers here. They have a saying "If you're not happy, we won't eat." So they hope you are really, really happy.

You have a point. Besides, Shindler's Array doesn't sound as moving. Perhaps, Shindler's Binary Tree would be better.

Frankly, after all those years hiding in that attic, I doubt Miss Keller would see the humor in this headline...

There is a Schindler elevator in the parking ramp next to my job. It's broken a lot of the time. And yes, the first time i noticed the name (what else is there to DO in an elevator?) the List reference was the first thing that came to mind.

The 5 year old Schindler elevator at one apartment building here does not instill confidence. Noisy, slow and the doors at times are opening before the floor is even aligned or before the elevator has finished moving. The chimes are horrendous too.

Schindler 's queue
 
2012-11-13 01:02:12 PM
But a list would be too small and inefficient for showing all necessary data...perhaps a spreadsheet?

/ah subby, wonderful humour still
 
2012-11-13 01:05:09 PM
I guess those that died "were not essential to the lift effort!"

There's a Schindler elevator at my grandparent's veteran's home. Can't tell you how many times I've made this joke.

They probably mean the safety feature that should have kept it in place when the guy was there, and perhaps also the system that should have stopped it when it met resistance (is there such a thing? Like how you can stick your arm in closing elevator doors, to make them reopen.).

You are partially correct; this thread WAS about elevators. NOW, it's about data structures.

If you don't know what that is; it's nerd speak for methods of data storage and retrieval. It's a play on words.

I don't know; it's probably better than Shindler's Linked List.
