Screw stairs: German university installs gigantic slides

Stairs are great and all, but they're certainly not the most fun way to get down from the top floor of a building. I'm pretty sure that honor goes to slides. Which is why I really want to visit the Technische Universitat in Munich, Germany.

Yes, this school features a couple of gigantic slides that help students get from the top floor to the ground-level patio in a matter of seconds. Why is this not used more often? Who wouldn't prefer to take a slide to taking the stairs? Nobody, that's who.
