Default Why are stairlifts so slow?

In article , says...

I never did understand why people would build a house with all the
bedrooms upstairs. Fine maybe for the younger, but not the older.

Er, in UK English the 'first floor' *is* upstairs! :-)

Most houses have a 'ground floor' and a 'first floor' in the UK. Yes,
I know it's not very logical but that's the way it is.




The labeling on many things ,especially in different countries can be
confusing.

My house would probably confuse some. It has a walkout basement (even
with the ground on one side with a door but the other wall is
underground, then the floor that we call the 1st floor, then the 2nd
floor. So depending on where you go in the house may determine what you
call the floors.


Havent noticed anyone do it like that. Its normally called
the ground floor or the first floor depending on the country
based on what is at roughly ground level with the front door.

Sure, a few houses don't have just once front door,
but most do have one primary door except ****ing
great country mansions or real castles etc.

I spose a few big houses that had been converted into
flats and them back to just one house might well end
up with more than one front door but it would be rather
uncommon for those to be on different floors. There are
a few with big ramps up to the higher one, and stairs etc
to down to a lower one but even with those the lower
one isnt normally called the first floor or the ground floor.

In the US I have seen elevators in buildings labeled G,1,2 for the
Ground (where you normally go into the building) and some just
1,2,3. Then there is the floor called Lobby. Also the normal floor
to go in and out of the building.


Seems to me that for the blind there is a big star
raised next to the normal into and out of the
building floor along with the dots for the floors.


Never seen that here. Dunno what the blind do about
that here. Brian might comment about the UK, he is
blind but he doesn't appear to read all posts.

The large plant I worked in was built and added on to over about 40 years.
Some parts the floors were very tall and the height of 2 normal floors.


Yeah, some houses are done like that in part of the ground/first
floor too but that is normally the floor you enter the house by.

So you are walking down the floor and it is the 2nd floor. You pass
through an opening about 15 feet wide and it becomes the 3 rd floor.
Then go to the other side of the building and the floors are 1,
mezzanine, 2,3. So going down a hallway about 200 feet long you start
on the 2nd floor, go through an opening in the wall and you are on the
Mezz floor, and then through another opening and you are on the 3 rd
floor.

Costs a lot more to go much faster and still be safe.

I'm not asking for fast, just say.... walking speed! They all go at
some stupidly low speed about half a mile an hour. There's no way
anyone would consider double that to be dangerous.

A whole minute to get upstairs is not acceptable for an old person
desperate for the toilet.

Only the demented cant anticipate the need and go earlier.

Or anyone who's old.

That's bull****. I anticipate that I might need to take a **** or ****
before leaving the house and do so before I leave if I need to.

And how about to answer the door?

Much cheaper to have a decent doorbell system that allows you to tell
who ever knocked on the door that you are coming.

Some of us get real radical and have one that works even if we arent
home so we can tell the indivual at the door that we arent home and
when
we will be home or where to leave what they are bringing.
Or tell them that your cant come to the door so they wont break in a
loot the place.

The demented wear nappys anyway.


It's a wonder that you have any **** left.


I want to live in Rod's world. He does EVERYTHING perfect and never has
problems.


I dont actually. I have just recently been involved in
a similar situation as with Arbery, with me in the situation
of the father and son. With hindsight what I did was quite
stupid and I ended up visiting 3 hospitals as a result.


Who is Arbery?


The black guy who just got shot dead in Georgia USA,
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shooting_of_Ahmaud_Arbery

The perp,


That's a stupid American abbreviation.


Yes its american, its not stupid. What else would you call him ?

No point in calling him a suspect.

did end up back in jail the next day because
he is a jail bird who was out on parole and was back in jail for breach
of parole.


My stupidity was that I didnt realise that he was a jail
bird and well known to the cops. He would have been
back in jail if I had just given the video footage to the
cops, but I wasnt to know that.


How is it stupid not to know all the jailbirds?


Too many of them for that. Tho I do know one very well
and have known him since he was a preschool kid, one
of my neighbours kids. In fact he told me that another
of my neighbours kids is also a jailbird too. Thats the
kids from two of my closest neighbours, half of my
closest neighbours.

He's a geek controlling his life with his phone.


Much more often with the other stuff like the Philips Hue
system, the google home minis and the Echo Dots.

It'd be funny if it was dropped, broken, lost, stolen etc.

No big deal, I'd use the previous one. Effortlessly since
iphones automatically keep them all fully synched. Just
turn the spare on and carry on regardless.

is possible and even you leave the house at times.

We bought a house about 15 years ago that has 2 bedrooms and a bathroom
upstairs. The master bedroom and bathroom is on the first floor. So is
the washing machine. Now that we are in our 70's it was a wise decision
to have everything we need on the first floor. We did remodle the
bathroom before moving in. Best decision for us was to replace the
bathtub with just a walk in shower. We only have to step up about 3
inches to get into the shower. We also had a grab bar put in that is
screwed into the studs to hold on to. There is a tub upstairs if we want
it, but have not used it very much.

I never did understand why people would build a house with all the
bedrooms upstairs. Fine maybe for the younger, but not the older.

That's why we bought a house 7 years ago that was single level and on a
level block. But then, I have always lived in single level houses.
Detest stairs with a passion. They seem to get steeper as one gets older.

Because most people have become pussified snowflakes, unwilling to
accept modest risk.


Agreed.* Although in the case of the stairlift, at any speed you are
safe due to the supplied belt.* If you don't use it, your fault not
theirs, so no compensation claim, nothing for them to worry about.* And
they could even make it disable the motor if you don't fasten the belt.

But people have become incredibly illogical too.* Ever notice all the
obese people wearing masks?* Apparently it never occurred to them that
being obese was more of a threat than the Wuhan virus?


Agreed.* Although I've seen nobody in the UK wearing a mask, we don't
bother.


Which is why you have high levels of contamination.

If they are so afraid of dying, why don't they change their diet and
lose some weight? The evidence is clear, metabolically healthy people
are largely unaffected by the Wuhan virus.


Agreed.* When a fat person says they have a medical problem, I just say
"Eat.* Less.* Food."* You don't need to change your diet, just eat less
of it.* Or go for a run or something, it's not rocket science.

You should have mentioned that 200 years ago. Have you visited typical
city housing in the big cities? Hundreds of thousands of houses have no
room for them and it would have been a barely or unaffordable affordable

My house has the 'front door' at basement level. Anyone coming in that
way would think the place is a right **** tip. There's a door on the
lower 'living' floor but it isn't obvious from the street. If I happen
to be in the basement when some religio-maniac or whatever comes onto
the property I open the 'front door' (which looks great from the
outside) and invite them in. They look round in wonderment because they
are effectively in a dirty old cellar. I bet they go away thinking the
whole place is like that.

So you've never had an erection?

Impossible for him to get an erection, he doesn't have a dick.


Then the appropriate word would be "she".* Please learn basic English.


Mea culpa, the word I should have used is *it* since you've obviously
been castrated.

That connector is long gone. You use bluetooth stupid.


Odd, my iPhone has a headphone connector and it's only 2 years old. That
is hardly *long gone*. I expect my next iPhone, an SE, won't have a
connector, and I won't need it since I now possess bluetooth earbuds and
a bluetooth headset. Never did like being *tethered* by cords anyway.

Wrong, as always.

If does have the lightning connector.

I have always used a bluetooth neckband headset.

Yeah, right pain in the arse.

My SE has the audio connector - not sure if the NEW SE will also have
it. It is a good "feature" - and the connectors CAN be waterproof just
like the power switch and volume controls

One place I worked in had floors called (starting at the bottom) sub

Which one is the ground floor? A?

I would expect "sub loft" to be near the top.
