I worked in Wyoming for two months once. As a Florida boy, I was reviled and shunned, which was fine cause omg what a waste of space that is. I liked the antelopes and the Close Encounters mountain, but why in the hell would I ever need to build a second floor out there?

I think the root of the issue is; there can't be many 2nd floors that can withstand the weight of your average Wisconsinite.

Don't you need two stories for an escalator?

It's a repeat from yesterday

escalatorgate is all the rage in Wyoming and new construction has been so swift that one could say that it's been elevated to new heights

my dad took me deer hunting in Wyoming when I was about 8. One thing I specifically remember was seeing the skulls of a couple of crocodiles/alligators.

One of these days I need to ask my dad why there was crocodile/alligator skulls in Wyoming.

People who worry about overcrowding and overpopulation have never been to Wyoming. When the highway signs say "Next services 350 miles," they are not kidding. Get gas immediately if you don't have 350 miles left in your tank.
 
2013-07-20 04:10:23 AM  
Well, that sure escalatored slowly.

Being from South Dakota, the first time i saw an escalator in real life was when i was 13. We were on a field trip in the Twin Cities and everyone ran to ride up and down the escalator. The locals just stared at us. Most likely they assumed we were all "special." My childhood sucked.

Trapkus said the escalators are a popular attraction for children, who can ride the moving staircase for free during business hours.

Does this mean that they charge admission outside of business hours?

WY has more Yellowstones, Tetons and Devil's Towers than anywhere else in the world. What would it need with escalators?

Not to mention hidden gems. My dad has a ranch in WY, and within walking distance are two sets of native rock-face petroglyphs, and this (click to embiggen).

universebetween: Wyoming: The Farking Shiatiest State in the Union.


nah, I'd go with a southern state for that.
If you want to pick a north state, I think whatever bad can be said about Wyoming probably goes twice in Idaho or North Dakota.

I remember watching close encounters of the third kind at a KOA in the shadow of devils tower on a trip as a kid.

They had some lost hikers to boot so while the movie was playing, there was actually a helicopter flying around. At 11, I thought I was in the land of awesome.

Wyoming, home of *real* fireworks and grocery stores that sell ammo.

When I was in elementary school, we used to go to the courthouse at lunch to ride the elevator; the only one in the county. Up one floor. Then back down. It was awesome.
 
2013-07-20 05:29:58 AM  
How many escalators does a state with a population of 27 (NO, WAIT!29 with that couple that just crossed the state line in a busted up Honda!) need?

My parents lived in Medicine Bow for a while.It's an absolutely beautiful place, but almost NO ONE lives there.Trips to the grocery store were all day occasions because of the drive time involved.Along the way, trains on tracks parallel to the road would honk at you simply because they hadn't seen anything else in over 6 hours.

People only make fun of Florida because it's interesting. Nothing interesting has happened in Wyoming since Richard Dreyfuss met the aliens.

So don't even bother. We Florida boys know exactly where we stand, and it's towering over those idiot wanna-be cowboys that wander that wasteland they call a "state."

One note to any other Floridians though: Alcohol is different there. Be careful about your intake. Floridians are very used to deep humidity and sea level, so when you try to drink the same amount in a suddenly arid and higher altitude climate it can really take you by surprise. No wonder we're all such good drunks down here.

PS: if you leave a bag containing a Nintendo DS and weed at Tampa International Airport, they will actually return the DS. They even called me about it and said hey, you ain't getting that weed back but sure, no one wants your DS. And they did not lie.

How do people become experienced escalator repairmen?

I understand how people learn to fix cars. You're young, buy a broken down heap and some tools, and learn to keep it running.

Or aircraft repair. You join the military, they train you, and take those skills out into the real world.

But escalators? No one has a second hand escalator at home. Military doesn't train escalator repairmen. So what is it then? A bunch of bums watching People's Court, and see ads for Apex Escalator Repair School? Or are they a bunch of con men, who don't know jack shiat about repairing escalators, and just bullshiat their way into maintenance work?

And if there are only two escalators in Wyoming, that repairman must have an awful lot of free time. Or does he bribe kids to jam screwdrivers into the treads, so that he always has repair work to do?

At least one of the Dept stores in Wyoming probably have one of these.

"Escalator" is one of those words like Cellophane and Thermos that originated as a trademark.

have you ever been to that vast wasteland? I'm sure they flock for miles around with their horses and buggies. It's seriously a very odd place. You don't see many people defending Wyoming in this thread do you? That's cause all 4 Farkers in the entire state are either asleep or drunk.
