How To Survive A Free-Falling Elevator
Contrary to what you heard in the school yard as a child,
do not attempt to jump just before landing.
The reduction in force will be so small as to be insignificant.
Instead, if you have bags or suitcases with you,
stack them up and stand as high as you can.
Create whatever space possible between you and the floor to allow your body time to decelerate once the elevator lands.
If there are handrails, spread your weight across them to help slow the rate of impact.
If the elevator is small or crowded, brace yourself by standing with slightly bent knees.
In either scenario, the key word is "survive".
Your extremities may not forgive you anytime soon,
but your vital organs will send you flowers and a thank you card.
To learn to avoid such a predicament yourself as well as how to overcome
nuclear explosions, bumping into your ex,all you can eat buffets,
a zombie attack, getting kidnapped, a job you hate, hangovers,
a failed parachute, writer's block and more,
get your own copy of Lonely Planet's How To Survive Anything.
A visual guide to laughing in the face of adversity.
