Those poor people.

It would be my worst ever nightmare, and then for it to be dangling in high winds, gives me the shivers just thinking about it.

I've just been reading about this - those poor people.

How are they going to wee? How many to a cable car? Will they get cold?

PikachuSayBoo Thu 08-Sep-16 23:06:47

Think they've managed to get people food, water and blankets but it's going to be a cold and uncomfy night. Not sure if there's still kids trapped.

They're either going to have to wee on the floor and let it slop about or some cable cars have an escape hatch in the floor which if they're brave they could open and balance above it!

The windows will open so a bloke can probably pee out the window. Maybe women can pee in a cup and throw it out the window.

Ive been on that cable car and it's high up! Some people may be on their own, people could potentially have six or maybe eight in their cabin.

Nightmare scenario!

I'd have a heart attack I think!! Although I'm actually quite good in pressurised situations. I'd definitely suffer nightmares afterwards though.

I knew I was right to refuse to go in that sort of thing.

Some people may be on their own?!?!?

Isn't there a horror film which basically has this as the plot?

shock
I have been there! I hated it even though nothing happened then, i think I would lose it. I hate cable cars!!
I hope everyone will be ok.

OMG I have been there, too! shock shockshockshockshock
Hope it is ok. Why is there no rescue helicopter? Too risky, maybe? OMG. Don't have nightmares, everyone! I'm sure it is very rare (err do I sound sure?)

PikachuSayBoo Thu 08-Sep-16 23:21:57

I'd rather be on my own than crammed in with a load of others.

At least it's not the Vanoise express which is a massive cable car, standing room only and fits about 200 people in jammed in like sardines. You'd have to sleep standing up if trapped in there!

I hope they don't get a Mussorgsky ear worm I know I would.

overthehillandroundthemountain Thu 08-Sep-16 23:23:15

Should we consider a list of possible ear worms? I hope someone has a little radio...maybe internet radio for dedications...

That comes under 'worst nightmare'.

Haggisfish Thu 08-Sep-16 23:32:42

It's too windy and dark for helicopter rescue windy!!! Aaarrrgggh. shock

BeJayKayven Thu 08-Sep-16 23:37:55
