I think I figured out elevators.

No, I'm not crazy. At least, I don't think I am.

Here's the deal. I've noticed that when an elevator is going up, it dings once when the door opens, and when it's going down, it dings twice when the door opens. Is this an ADA thing? Well, if I'm right, then if I ever go blind I'll know which direction I"m heading in when I step on to an elevator.

Ha! Check this out: http://www.disability-laws.org/Facility_Access/ADAAG/Tech_Rqmts/ADAAG_4-10.html and look at item 4.10.4. I was right!

I'd like to hear an elevator that actually says up or down instead of the dings. :D

my sister is very observant.

AND if you go blind you will also be able to read since you taught yourself braille. or brale. brail. brayl.


just kidding.
