    It is nice to know that the building cannot be consumed by fire.

    How about flood, famine, pestilence, and plagues of Locusts?

    Lighting a match or lighter in this elevator will cause it to say “do not want” and instantly fall at terminal velocity.

    Elevator also dislikes smelly people. Please use either deodorant or the stairs.

    Even if it’s in the fireplace? Oh, this is a low-budget hotel, it’s probably just painted on the wall or something.

    ♫ Oooh you take me higher
    you know it’s true Elevator
    you help prevent the fire
    they can take the stairs, I’ll catch them later
    because you still fuel my desire ♫

    The fire must use the stairs like everyone else

    That’s why they say: ”Where there’s smoking in the floor, there’s an elevator!”

    Unfortunately the elevator has no control over informal meetings of fire.

    Dammit! We’ve been building fire stations, installing sprinklers and fire alarms when all along we could’ve just legislated fire out of existence. What fools we’ve been!

    Well, the Chinese government’s already illegalized Reincarnation without government permission. Forbidding rapid oxidation reactions isn’t that much of a leap.
