    Wow, when it happened, he actually improvised and walked the stairs on foot.
    Guess this ability of rapid thinking is, what differentiates a leader from a pawn

        Russian tampering with the escalator process! Hopefully this incident will not escalate tensions between these two oil producing nations.

        Imagine if this would have happened when Donald Trump was announcing his candidacy! No, just imagine it. Donald Trump stuck on an escalator for the entire primaries. Oh what could have been ... *wipes tear from eye*

          I noticed the press conference in Trump tower reg. Charlottesville was in an area with fully golden walls. Not only did I wonder who paid for them, I was also pleased to see another rich guy wasting his gold ducats for overly pompous, kitschy, and generally bad-taste appearances. This Saudi dude's golden escalator goes into the same direction

            Because it fits the topic Saudi Arabia:
            Yoda oversaw the signing of the UN charta by Prince Faisal in 1945

            At least this is what a certain number of students learned (until the book was withdrawn), when they looked at one of the "historic" photographies in their school textbook

                His ass was so fat he broke the escalator.

                  On a long shot this is fitting to the topic - descend problems, almost Saudi and german.

                  What is it with Düsseldorf Airport since this seems to be the normal :

                    What is it with Düsseldorf Airport since this seems to be the normal :

                    Flat land all around, you also have to cross the river (i.e. Rhine) coming from one direction (IIRC coming from 230). Guess that results in a few temperature differentials that may cause a more windy environment there.
                    Also both runways point into the same direction (05/23), so if you have crosswinds from around 150 or 320, there is no runway that you could use in order to apprach the winds headon.

                    Addendum:
                    Seems like in this particular case, however, Xavier was the culprit, the storm that haunted germany during the last week

                      And then of course there's this (also weather-related):

                      "The year's wildfire season is one of the worst in history in the United States, with nearly 8.6 million acres (3.5 million hectares) burned so far, just behind 2012, according to the National Interagency Fire Centre."

                      Of course there's some other explanation than global warming. Several I expect.

                              Aaaawwww, beat me to it.
                              How about a car crash involving naked kidnappers high on "Herbal"(hallucinogenic) tea.
