How you travel on escalators on the Tube is often an indicator of how much of a rush you're in. Most people will just stand. Some people will walk down. If you're really in a hurry (or trying to escape from gun-toting cops...), you'll run down. This guy, though, must have been seriously pressed for time...

Well, it's local. I travel (read: usually standing) down that escalator on my way home from work every day. I'm wondering where in Islington I can buy a luge.... Oh and the video's slightly wrong. It's the longest escalator in western Europe. There are longer ones on the Moscow Metro. And the Swiss are planning to build a longer one under a mountain in the Alps, apparently.
