Revolving Doors and the Future of Humanity

If there’s one thing that convinces me that humanity has reached the end of its growth process and is now at a complete evolutionary dead end, it is our inability to deal effectively with an unpowered revolving door.

Tower Bridge has to employ people – at quite a generous hourly rate – to stand outside and ensure that visitors don’t just stand there, feebly waving at the “Push” signs on the door, or try to ram their entire family of five obese adults into a single door compartment, or try to push it in the wrong direction, or decapitate themselves as it revolves.

As anyone who has read my Facebook posts over the years will know, my opinion on the capabilities of my fellow humans has never been terribly high.

Watching the planet’s most advanced species get totally and utterly stumped by a few pounds of rotating glass door has sunk it to a new low.

Disastrous climate change can’t happen fast enough in my view…
