Suitcase Stair Sliding

WARNING! DO NOT TRY DOING ANYTHING WRITTEN HERE WHICH SEEMS SLIGHTLY CRAZY OR MAY RESULT IN A DEATH OR SERIOUS INJURY UNLESS YOU’RE CHUBBY AND CAN USE YOUR BELLY AS AIR BAG (although... still don't do it)

 

Recently, I developed a sudden obsession with suitcases. Which unexpectedly gave me the idea of sliding down the stairs in a suitcase! Though Federica said it would be dangerous and irrational, I still felt like doing it. "Vas if you break your neck it's not going to be my fault." Federica warned, trying to save her rather expensive crimson shell suitcase. I also had an idea of using Federica's cello case. It's a good idea because you can basically ride down with your legs stretched out and you can cushion it for a luxurious ride down the stairs. But sadly on this she absolutely put her foot down. 

 

Now the question you may ask is: why on earth would you want to do such a crazy thing and why are you doing this? I have not even the foggiest idea. "You are an absolute lunatic - that's why. BUT IT'S AWESOME. Being a lunatic is what makes you awesome, remember that." quotes Federica... again.

 

Now a little about the history of the suitcase:

 

Macy's sold the first suitcases in October of 1970. Rolling suitcases were invented in 1970 when Bernard D. Sadow applied for a patent[1] that was granted in 1972 as United States patent 3,653,474 for "Rolling Luggage". This is the main thing you need to know from the olden days.

 

Anyway, the best thing that has happened to the suitcase revolution so far is the "chair-case", introduced by Samsonite. Now all I'm waiting for is a suitcase that does your homework and cleans your room for you. Although, it already cleans your room! You just stuff all your rubbish and things lying round inside the suitcase and you’re done! Purr-fect! (I'm also a pun addict )
