Well, bummer! Find something that's pretty cool, and it's fake? =(

The last line of the article:

Ultimately, it's an experiment to see if we can be fooled, and how willing we are to believe something even though it defies basic logic.

I soooo wanted to believe.... LOL

I've seen this one in person, it's awesome, but they won't let you walk up it anymore. It's in a very small church though.

Because it's old, made out of wood, has no actual supporting beams, leads upstairs to what looks like nothing at all, brings in tourist money, and it just plain looks Pretty, I wouldn't want anyone fucking it up!

it is the escherian staircase ... as in the german artist mc escher ... here is the model for it ... it continues to go up as the slope of the staircase goes down, and vice versa

Re: Incredible Staircase!! You've got to see it to believe it!!
there's a road outside of Pittsburgh I think on the way to Butler that has a good few hundred yard gradual hill on it.

Problem is, when you shut off the car and drift it in neutral, it goes the entire way up the hill (maybe 20 degree grade couple hundred yards).


It's the same premise but on a road in your car.



TOTAL MINDFUCK!!!!



I saw it once, everything about it was like being in a dream, everything I knew reveresed itself....
