Longer walks & Elevator mirrors

I love this. Kill people's perception of waiting and eliminate frustration. Humans are strange creatures indeed. Obviously applicable to web design....


Why Waiting Is Torture | NYT

Passengers were lodging an inordinate number of complaints about the long waits at baggage claim...
