    Humans cant perceive the velocity of the moving objects they are on/in, you can't tell with what speed a car moves as long as it is moving with a constant speed. I know this because once I traveled in the back of a windowless van while moving, and I couldn't tell the speed, I could only presume it in the moment off accel/deceleration. Now back to elevators. Elevators accelerate so slow and so smoothly that one has no chance of telling the speed. At my workplace we have an industrial elevator for 3+1 story building. I usually travel from the 1st to the 3rd floor and vice versa and it takes about 1 minute. Once the elevator malfunctioned and it reduced the speed. Taking over 6 minutes to travel between the floors. Since I didn't know this, I really thought that I am traveling down in a secret level or something.

    The only scary thing that actually happened to me that included a elevator was my mom and my sister had gone on the floor above me using the elevator and I was in a really grumpy mood because I was like seven and she had already gone in the elevator with my sister it had chimed once and it started going up and my mom knew that she had forgotten me she did it on purpose to teach me a life lesson to Focus and by the time I turned around nobody was there and I got so scared I started calling mom‘s name I started shrieking at the top of my lungs mommy mommy where are you and above me I heard we’re up here and she said to me just get in the elevator and press two and I said I’m scared I don’t want to and she said well that’s too bad you’re going to have to I spent I think two minutes crying outside of the elevator and then I built up enough courage to get in the elevator and press number two but I actually just realized that the whole entire time that I was crying for two minutes outside of the elevator I never saw anybody get in the elevator or get out the elevator and it was the busiest time of the day But anyways I got up to the second floor and I got home

    being stuck in an elevator is definitely a very scary concept. this one time i was standing in the elevator in my apartment for like 15 minutes before i started to panick when i realized it wasnt moving anywhere, but then i looked up and realized the floor i was going too wasnt lit up. i forgot to press the fricken button and when i did, it worked just fine. so i just stood still in the elevator on the bottom floor for 15 minutes just zoned out thinking it was going up when i forget to press the floor button xD i guess it was just one of those days.

    Fun facts about dying of dehydration 1. Some people will die three or four days without water, for others it may take over a week 2. Shane is correct about how you can drink your own urine several times before it becomes poisonous 3. Extreme dehydration will cause kidney failure 4. Without any water your body will start taking water from other parts of your body like blood, bone, and organs 5. Without the water your blood will become very thick and have trouble moving through your body 6. You can lose up to half of your body weight before you die 7. Your eyes will recede into your skull 8. Your tongue will become extremely swollen, you will not be able to talk and breathing will become a challenge 9. Without water your brain will start to shrink and pull away from your skull, this can cause ruptures Dying of thirst is a horrible way to go

    True creepy story. Where I worked were two types of elevators. The ones with buttons you operated yourself and one that was manned by an elevator operator. Well, the one wit the elevator operator malfunctioned one time beheading the elevator operator. Somehow she had been caught between the door and wall or something weird like that. When the elevator started moving her body was stretched. The whole time you could hear screams from the guy she was taking up. To say the least, he was freaked out of his mind.

    I’m disabled and in a wheelchair, so when there is a building where there is more than one floor, I have no choice but to take a lift. I do sometimes get nervous using them, but luckily every place with lifts I’ve been to, they’ve luckily worked and I’ve not got stuck so far. I am quite a claustrophobic person, like in a room, there has to be at least one door open for me to feel safe. It’s not like a horror scary, it’s just a fear sort of scary, like spiders or thunder/loud noises, they induce panic. I know this story is fake, but still.

    The great irony is, traditionally speaking Shane would lose his mind before Ryan. Ryan would get scared sooner absolutely, but in terms of the onset of a psychotic break my money is on Shane cracking first simply because his mind is not flexible enough to handle the violation of the 'laws' of reality as well as Ryan's.

Loving the homage and Ryan being kickass! 2) This is a GORGEOUS mix of True Crimes and Paranormal. THANK YOU for doing this on Watcher.

    She has her phone on her and has at least one roommate awake during this scary elevator ride. She should have texted or called her awake roommate for help. Her roommate would know which elevator was broken, to direct a worker to who could stop it and save OP. Okay, she doesn't have service in the elevator. But still that awake roommate would probably note that OP been gone and would go to try to find her or get help finding her sooner or later that same day I'm sure.

    I really did get stuck in my college dorm elevator that never seemed like anything was wrong with it. I was headed to my favorite class when it stopped on the 7th floor, one below mine. I was trapped for nearly and hour and when the fire department got there, I was told I was between the 6th and 5th floors and they’d have to be extra careful getting me out. I skipped my next class, held my emotional support cat and never took that elevator ever again. I still get wary of even the nicest elevators.

    Hellevator was my nickname for the elevator in my college dorm, it was an old one that had an up button and down button and you had to hold them until you got to your floor and hopefully stopped around where the floors met. There were no walls, just metal grates so you could see into the elevator shaft which despite being scary did help tell what floor you were on as the shaft was covered in graffiti that you could memorize to know where you were. Worst part is that the doors to the elevator could be locked from the outside (they were just normal doors, not the sliding ones) so there was always that fear that someone could lock you in if they really wanted. It was lit though, as long as you had the elevator grate/door shut, shutting it triggered a sensor that would turn on the electricity to the light and elevator. Honestly surprised it passed inspection, especially as the door to the elevator in the basement has one of those tiny handles you’d see on a medicine cabinet or something. Wouldn’t recommend if you fear anything about elevators
