External fun elevator on every tall building

You can use the regular elevator, or can take a spin on the fun one outside the building. Each building can have a unique type of ride, making it more interesting to ride as well as to look at.

These can even connect between buildings way up at the 39th floor.

Finally the futuristic architects from the 60s can have their way.

And now that Bin Laden is supposedly out of the way, the guys from New York could construct something interesting.

       Who wants to go back and tell them?

       We're going back there anyway to buy some proper-sized Mars bars, so if you give us some postcards we'll drop them in the mail for you.

       What postage would be required for mailing something through time? The sender rate, or the receiver, or an average?

       If you return with the football, racing and lottery results for the week of return, it should pay for the trip.   

       Pick up some Curly-Wurlys too.

       [Ray], it's best to pay postage in the era in which the item is posted. Remember, the post doesn't travel through time after it'd posted- except for Royal Mail 2nd class, where stuff disappears into a black hole for a couple of billion of your Earth years.   

       Anything else besides curly-wurlies and the sports papers?

       The postage system as a time capsule... hmmm...

       Why is the acronym not HRRCEV? Why does Roler have one L? Enquiring minds want to know.

       Is 'enquiring' the same as 'intelligent', though ?

       no

       We have long feared as much.

       No, when I said ‘return’, that’s the outward journey on a temporal negative excursion. Basic time travel terminology (unless your TEV operating manual was a cheapo knock-off).

       I thought this might be roller coaster on the slopes of the Himalayas, a satellite sits in a sabot in the car, as it passes down each sherpa drops a rock in the car for extra propulsion, in the manner of one of them busy lizzie guns.   

       //The postage system as a time capsule?// Sent one recorded delivery letter from one a part of W1 London, to another part of W1 London. Turned up 30 days later stamped "Found in an empty mail bag in Dover". So, mildly baked and they even have a special stamp for it..

       //in an empty mail bag// Interesting...

       If you make it right, there will be vomit. I suggest a covered sidewalk for the commuters below. Bun! [+]
