Hazards of Drinking and Sliding

Saturday, 16 April 2011
A few nights ago, after many post work beers, deciding it would be uber cool to slide down the bannister of the enormous escalator at Dublin Heuston station.

In my inebriated state, I neglected to consider the fact that that my cheap work trousers might be made of a fabric more slippery than greased teflon.  I had soon accelerated like a greyhound out of a trap, and by the time I reached the bottom, i must have been doing 20+mph. Launched off the end, through the air landing in a crumpled heap, with torn trousers all witnessed by several hundred people making their way home.

Not my finest moment,

    HAHA I laughed, only becuase I've been there at London Waterloo and done the exact same thing. Not as bad as when the escalator ate part of my shoe and like 3 people behind me all fell over me though!

    Goats do not like being ridden.

    I've done stupid stuff drunk as well, though it involved fruit punch, jagermeister, part of a handle of vodka, a pool, and a bunch unfiltered cigarettes. Let just say there was an entire section sidewalk completely red the next morning that stank of poolwater and booze

    AHHH! a video would have been nice!

  1. pffff, it's no big deal, i'm sure people slide down that and rip their pants all the time

  1. Just Me said...:

    hahaha... that must have been funny. not the finest, but funniest

  1. But...i bet it was fun as hell. Even more so drunk.

  1. definitely a great story for later though :) reminds me of a great comedian who said something to the effect of stories of people who don't drink always suck because the always end in "and then i got home" rocketing down escalator medians is much more fun :)

  1. achievement unlocked

  1. is there video evidence of this? Cause that might be a cool thing to watch

  1. Xuian said...:
