take the stairs - see whats in there. My guess is it is a secret coven of sexy female ninjas waiting for their ginger haired messiah to finally appear so that they can lavish him and his faithful attendant (that's me) with all pleasures known to man and some only known in the "How to Please Your Messiah and His Friends" handbook.

I think they get rid of 12 in case you count from Lower Ground, or maybe there is a Mezzanine level. So baiscally whichever way you count, there is no 13.

But then, really, level 14 is like level 13.

Dunno, weird.

In my work building we don't have a level 35. It's 33, 34, 36, 3- whoa!

In my current building and last building, we had mezzanine levels. What is the point of them? Why not just call them level 1 and get on with it?

i hate to admit it but this has been puzzling me - surely superstition is not involved? As much as i loathe to bring logic and realism into the equation - maybe they are maintenance levels only accessable via the goods lift?

Mick

BZZZZZ - Thanks for playing Mr Simon H (maybe H stands for 'hardly')

Look, as if you're put aside two floors permanently for goods lift? OK, if you did, then 13 is a good choice and 12 is next to it. But really, come on.

Maybe they take out 12 and put in a mezzanine so you can't easily count all the floors and say 'well you didn't call me 13 but it's actually the 13th floor, so I don't want it'. I mean who says "Phew, it's room 12b, no problems there!"

From Wikipedia...

In architecture, a mezzanine or entresol is an intermediate floor between main floors of a building; it is often low-ceilinged, and often projects in the form of a balcony. The term is also used for the lowest balcony in a theater, or for the first few rows of seats in that balcony.

Our current building does have a balcony on the mezzanine floor, overlooking the lobby. But at our last one, the mezzanine was just like any other floor.

Maybe its highly restricted and the only way to get to it is go to 14 and then back down firestairs. This was the case when I visited Macquarie Data centre near Central. Very secure!

On another note, we have a lift like Willie Wonker and the chocolate factory where you press the wrong button and sometimes it shoots you out the roof!!! It is embarassing when you have clients and you shoot them out the roof accidentally!

sam

This reminds me of Being John Malkovich - maybe there's a floor 13 and a half or 12 and a half...

starbug

maybe they lost the number 12 and thought 'oh fuck it'

what building is it in, be a good place to annoy someone - 'meet me on the 12th floor'
