Colin vs. Xinguang's Stairwell

So, I've deceided to make this post interactive. In order to give you an idea of what it's like to run up the second tallest building in Taibei without actually having to go up. To achieve this, you need to gather a few things: a plastic bag, a rubber band, and a copy of Jane Fonda's workout record.

All set?

Okay, first thing, put the plastic bag over your head and secure it with the rubber band. It is essential to this process that you allow as little air into your bady as possible. Good. Once the bag is secure, starting spinning around and around. The desire effect should be acheived in 3-4 minutes. Now you're ready to begin. Have a friend start the record on 78 and keep tempo with the chimpmunk-esque squeeking coming from the speakers. Upon completing, Side A remove bag and collapse.

Needless to say, I do not have a future as a professional, or semi-professional, stair runner.

The Xinguang Stair Climb was a reminder that sometimes, random impulse is not the best way to inform decisions. I guess it serves me right.
