I've been thinking a lot about elevators--about how far you could fall and survive a tumble down an elevator shaft (pretty far, apparently--google "elevator shaft" and "survive" and you'll find some pretty amazing stories) and especially how you would, um, relieve yourself if you had to be trapped in an elevator for hours--
Anyway, I thought this might be an interesting question to pose. If you had the foresight to prepare for being trapped in an elevator, what three things would you take into the elevator with you? (The problem, of course, is that no one ever knows when they're going to be stuck, so I doubt anyone is ever adequately prepared.)
Still . . . inquiring minds want to know. What three things would you take with you into an elevator that's less-than-reliable? (P.S. Cell phones are less-than-reliable in elevators).
