Office slides are pretty great in real life, too

Those wacky Brits are at it again. This time, the designers of a new office complex in Sheffield have installed a giant slide to whisk employees from the third floor of the building to the first. We suspect they got the idea from that famous Barclaycard ad, posted above, or perhaps from the network of pedestrian vacuum tubes in Futurama's New New York. Regardless, they need a ball pit for the employees to land in at the bottom. And maybe a different model than the one featured in the Daily Telegraph story linked above. I can still see that woman's face when I shut my eyes.
