26 cheerleaders trapped on a elevator -- where's Aklim?

Police free 26 cheerleaders from elevator at University of Texas' Jester Hall

11:19 AM CDT on Wednesday, August 6, 2008

By RACHEL SLADE / The Dallas Morning News

Police and firefighters were called to the University of Texas' Jester Hall to free 26 cheerleaders who had crammed themselves into an elevator.

A group of 14- to 17-year-olds attending Texas Cheer Camp in Austin decided to see how many girls they could squeeze into the elevator around 6 p.m. Tuesday, campus police said.

The elevator successfully descended from the fourth floor to the first, but the doors refused to open.

The panicked girls managed to wiggle a few cell phones free to call for help. But it took about 25 minutes before a repairman was able to fix the door, police said.

“It’s dangerous actually,” said Rhonda Weldon, director of communications for the UT Police Department. "They’re lucky that that’s all that happened."

One teen fainted and was treated and released from a nearby hospital. Two others were treated at the scene.

“Take the sign seriously,” Ms. Weldon said. “There are signs everywhere: No more than 15 people or 3,000 pounds.”

Wish I'd known - best way to get them out is to pour oil all over all of them and let them slide out one by one. Would be worth watching.

imagine 26 14-17 year olds screaming in mass panic unison in an elevator. You couldn't get the grease to stick if you willed it on them.

speaking of the math team... heres a word problem for you.

If the Maximum Load on an elevator is 3000LBs how much would the cheerleaders have to weigh in order to get 26 of them into the elevator with out exceeding capacity?

no more then 115LBs a peace then they are under that weight limit.

chances are that they were under the weight limit.

DAMN

I wish they had math problems like this when i was in high school.

That is why radical islam won't appeal to me. If I died and had 72 virgins to teach, I'd kill myself all over again or not even try to die.

Not quite. It's a highrise dorm and the lower floors have classrooms. That part's called Jester Hall. I had my Intro to Drama class in that building. .

Cup size
======

Measure across the fullest part of the breast (across the nipple), starting at the outside of the breast crease and going to the inside of the crease. Figure 4 shows the measurement of 9 inches.

The Right Bra measuring system allocates a cup size to each measurement.

7" = A cup; 8" = B cup; 9" = C cup; 10" = D cup ; 11" = DD cup; 12" = DDD (E cup)

IF you had 4 B cups, 10 C cups, 10 D cups, 1 DD cup and 1 DDD cup, how many inches of breast do you have? In metric

10 C cups 10X9=90
10 D cups 10X10=100
1 DD cup 1X11=11
1 DDD cup 1X12=12

Total = 32+90+100+11+12=245 inches of breast

1 in = 25.4mm
245 in = 245 X 25.4 = 6223mm (rounded off ) = 622.3 cm = 6.223m
