Voila, now you can never complain that time slips by while surfing the net.

Now if only i can figure out how to add scripts to my blog….

Trapped in an Elevator for 41 hours

Youtube Vid

Original news article from the New Yorker

Today’s vid for the day is the harrowing real-life experience of a man trapped in an elevator for 41 hours. With the nearest exit more than 13 floors below/above him and a haunting track from Jennifer Haines, you sense the claustrophobia, the mounting panic as the minutes slips into hours without any contact with helpers and finally, the mindless drudgery as a single thought is endlessly repeated: Will I die in this lift? This vid is worth a watch if only as a reminder that sometimes, the things we think in life are important lose all meaning when you stand at the brink and stare into the abyss of death.
