Beware the next time your ride an escalator at the mall folks. It appears that they are beginning to stage an organized revolt against their passengers. First an escalator chewed up this poor bastard, then one dished out some payback after some tool disrespected it with a joyride. But that was just a warm up because the escalators appear to be getting bolder. Most recently, a rogue escalator took out 20 passengers in a Tokyo convention center when it inexplicably started going in reverse.
