Earth-shattering kaboom

Me two weeks ago: "Technicians will be performing a routine 5-year safety test of the elevators. ... This is not expected to cause an audible disturbance inside [Borg] space."

Me today: "Soooooo... it turns out that it does 'cause an audible disturbance' because they load the elevators up with bricks and then drop them."

My people prairie-dogged to see what was going on.

That can't have been a good sound to hear that many floors up.

That sounds like a fun part of the technicians' job.

That sounds like fun! Maybe I should have trained to be an elevator technician.

Ahahaha, if that was supposed to be a deterrent, I think it backfired rather spectacularly. *casually nudges cellphone closer to the hole*

What a spectacular concept! A worthwhile badnoise experience. Also, I have now seen the phrase "Problem Child elevator," and my heart is filled with fear.

That is 100% something I would do too, I think.

I will have to tell my offspring how they test elevators! Offspring has paranoia about elevators, and I would like to reassure them.

I have a proposal to add a LIKE button (well really, a more general reaction button), here: https://github.com/dreamwidth/dw-free/issues/1941#issuecomment-445495596

Your thoughts and encouragement (or objections) welcomed!

That is an EXCELLENT link, BTW. The same company offers two forms of heavy-things for testing cranes -- a cheaper one made of steel, and a more expensive one filled with lead, which they recommend when space is a concern, because lead is EVEN HEAVIER.
