Well, apparently someone at Portland State University wanted to let everyone know that this elevator, located in Science Building 1, is “the slowest elevator in the world” by writing it on the cab wall.
Maybe it was the graffiti. Maybe it was students complaining. Or, maybe this elevator really is just slow! Whatever the reason, the university took notice and posted their own “Elevator is Slow” sign next to it.
So, now you know. The next time you visit Portland State’s Science Build 1 and need to use the elevator, arrive early and bring a book – maybe one such as this.
