  • Good morning, John.

  • It's Friday.

  • I think that we have all been in this situation at one point or another, I'm on the home screen on my YouTube YouTube shows me a thumbnail, and then I'm on the desktop home page and it shows to me again showing up at the auto play after a very task seems video on black holes.

  • You really must think this video is right for me inside a cave and you watch the unseen inefficiency of escalator etiquette.

  • And, uh, okay.

  • First, the title is fine.

  • There is unseen inefficiency caused by escalator etiquette of thumb now, and the video, however, are making a case.

  • The split is wrong, is it?

  • So let's go through the argument.

  • Escalators move all the time so they can carry far more people than elevators.

  • This capacity is why we use Point number two.

  • In cities.

  • There is an unspoken and sometimes explicit rule that you should stand on the right so people could walk on the last point.

  • Number three.

  • The split decreases the carrying capacity of the escalator because Walker's take up more space than standard, and this is somewhat surprisingly true.

  • It is the principle inefficiency in the unseen inefficiency of escalator etiquette.

  • Then we have a bit of a leap.

  • In the end, the video goes so far as to suggest that individual start some kind of mass cultural protests, standing on the left and the right in order to stop the menace of inefficient escalators and start the revolution.

  • Except that this didn't really seem right to me and probably doesn't do a lot of other people, because the problem this video endeavours to solve with this mass cultural shift is the problem of overcapacity.

  • Escalators.

  • But escalators are almost never at capacity.

  • Holborn Station Metro Experiment in London This was an escalator that was often at capacity.

  • It's also a very long escalator, so most people choose to stand, leaving one side of the escalator almost entirely empty.

  • And even in this situation, they only had standing on both sides during peak times.

  • In that situation at that station, Yes, it is better for everybody to stand, but in the vast majority of situations escalators, air No, we're near capacity because capacity is what escalators are so good at.

  • So the summer as the situation what's the right way to ride an escalator.

  • It depends.

  • This split isn't the best solution except when it is, which is almost all the time.

  • The 2014 study cited in the video actually only recommends standing on both sides during emergencies, which, by the way, you should stand on escalators during an emergency, especially if there are a lot of people behind you.

  • Two people per step.

  • No running, no walking.

  • That is good advice, but it's not advice that's going to get your YouTube clicks.

  • And ultimately, that's why I'm making this dumb video right now.

  • I have been running professionally on the Internet for a long time.

  • Like for scale like I started before Millie, Bobby Brown existed.

  • So I'm perfectly aware of the hoops that you could jump through to make something that's pretty interesting.

  • Become like a right.

  • Just click on immediate company.

  • We talk all the time about how a sideshow topic isn't good unless it surprises people.

  • Greatest bias in media isn't toward one side of the political spectrum or the other.

  • It's toward interesting.

  • Tell a ble story because that's the biggest bias our audience has.

  • Now.

  • Am I saying that this escalator video is bad?

  • Yes, it was very close to not being bad.

  • Inefficiency absolutely start the revolution.

  • No, this is the difficulty of being a creator or a media company in the world with, like, infinite content.

  • We have to chase the interesting.

  • So much so that sometimes we end up manufacturing the interesting.

  • I could have picked a 1,000,000,000 other videos.

  • I'm aware of that.

  • It shows this one is a fairly non controversial example.

  • So I apologize to the person who made it because it was like a pretty well done video.

  • It was very interesting.

  • Lots of good facts.

  • It manufactured some interesting that didn't exist.

  • I have also been guilty of this, especially early in my blogging career.

  • But the reason I'm making this video is because, like a lot of people crash course destined from smarter every day, many, many other people are starting to realize that, like we need to be taking this stuff more seriously and paying attention to how our buttons air getting pushed by the content that we're enjoying and ingested.

  • Because maybe if we all start taking our clicks a little more seriously, weaken start the revolution.

  • John, I'll see you on Tuesday, John Thank you for your amazing video from Sierra Leone.

  • I'm looking to it right here.

  • Everybody needs to go watch this, That's all.

Good morning, John.
