Admit it. You've thought about sliding down that median that separates the escalators from each other at the subway station. But, most of us are not dumb enough to try it.


This amateur daredevil attempted to slide down the barrier between two escalators at the "Angel tube station" in London, England, which is the longest escalator in London's subway system. Because he lived and got by without serious injury, we don't feel bad about sharing it with you. 

In a somewhat Ironic twist. the sign he crashed into was one that informed passengers to "Stand on the Right."

London Tube authorities have condemned the man's antics. 

One has to wonder if he was a fan of the American show, "Jackass." He certainly fits the description.
