The Paternoster Is The Scariest Lift Ever

Maybe it’s just me, but as I see people jumping in and out the Paternoster — a lift made out of chained cars that never stop — I can only see myself being crushed or losing a foot. It’s terrifying.

This one is the largest in the world, located at the University of Sheffield in the UK.

Are these allowed elsewhere in the world? It’s unlikely since they probably contravene all sorts of law, not to mention the potential for lawsuits. Or, like our own Brent Rose just said: “it’s just a person trash compactor”. [Tested via Twitter]
