Whenever he thought about it, he felt terrible. And so, at last, he came to a fateful decision. He decided not to think about it. ~John-Roger and Peter McWilliams

Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,

A strange phenomenon occurs when one gets on the south elevator in the ESC on the 2nd floor to go to the 1st floor. The doors close after werf walks in and then the doors open and close again before it descends. Why?

- One who takes the elevator only when tranporting carts

A: Dear One~

I took my highly skilled research team to the elevator in question with millions of dollars-worth of scientific equipment to get to the bottom of this mystery, and guess what?

Couldn't recreate it. Whatever happened to you, we couldn't figure out how to make it happen again, because the elevator worked normally. We tried several things, and nothing availed. Alas, I'm sorry.

If it happens to you again, please write in again and give us much detail as you can so I can try to recreate the experience exactly.

Oh, and the van crashed on the way home, killing my entire research team and destroying all their equipment. Thanks a lot.
