The Elevator of Doom.

The design of my library is very, um, strange. In a bad way. It is newly renovated and quite lovely in some areas. In other areas it's just decrepit and very unwelcoming. There are lots of nooks and weird little rooms all over the place. What really completes the creep factor is the scary elevator. There are certain parts of the library where, if you're taking a book cart with you to another floor, you must utilize this particular elevator. It is rather small and perhaps, coffin-like, and it has doors on each side which close, rather abruptly and with a sort of clatter, once you choose a floor. And to top it all off, there is a rather foreboding sign, a photo of which I posted below.

What's between "is" and "danger"?

i'm hoping it was supposed to be "no" but it looks like it could easily have been "some".

"What's between "is" and "danger"?"

10 seconds of pure unadulterated terror as you fall.

My least favorite part was always those slamming doors...
