I think I figured out why we never see the people that live downstairs...

Some people have a more difficult time than others to come out of the closet.

Nice to see that Harry Potter has a private entrance now.

We have this problem, we have approached it step by step, but we keep running into a blank wall.

After the successful movie "The people under the stairs".. The "real" people under the stairs used some of their windfall to move into a private residence in an upscale neighborhood.

Their upstairs neighbors said they haven't seen them at all, but complain about their strange noises that wake them at all hours.

Hey!! You all think this is nuts?!? Just wait.... The worm-hole to another dimension is yet to come. We just have to pause here because of lack of funding.

Oh, I hope not. When that worm-hole finally appears, I'm hoping for another dimension, and not just a balcony.

Is a step right, to enter onto this stairway, an illusion?

The architect might not know what is wrong - but the error is stairing me in the face

Winchester Mansion Pantry Doorknobs

I visited my strange neighbor when I was just a child of eight years old. Mrs.Winchester sent me to her basement pantry for a Ball jar of canned peaches.

I had to jump the banister to get to the door. No problem, but I noticed as I turned the knob to the door in the background that I was also turning the knob in the door in the foreground. Needless to say, when I returned, I still did not have the canned peaches she sent me to get.

If you're going to slide down the stair rail, you HAVE to have stairs. Otherwise it's just a rail, and that would be silly.
