All slides I've ever encountered have had an end. This is by far the worst part of the slide, and I think we should remove it.

All you need to make this happen is a decent engine and a half torus of human-sized plastic tubing. Honestly I'm amazed no theme park has done this yet, given the abundance of similar rotating structures they tend to contain.

I'm gonna go ahead and disqualify waterslides, since they're their own thing.

The market graph kinda looks like a slide. If it keeps asymptotically decreasing and I extend the market close date indefinitely, it would be an infinite one!

bought Ṁ35 of NO

My brain says 'No' even as my heart cries out for 'Yes'

If a hobbiest builds exactly one prototype, does that count? Or does it need to be mass manufactured?

@EliTyre That counts

The nice thing about slides is going fast. An infinite slide removes this and makes you stationary while the slide moves around under you, thus making the slide quite boring.

predicts NO

@Mqrius So the way to avoid this is to have a periodic slide where you go down a hill onto a flat bit, and the entire flat bit rises up while you're on it. That gives you new potential energy without taking away your forward velocity.

The entire thing would also have to go round in a circle of course. Kind of like a rollercoaster for your butt.

We will now.

"All slides I've ever encountered have had an end. This is by far the worst part of the slide, and I think we should remove it." is one of the favorite sentences ive read this month

@TomBouley That's more of a ball than a slide...

@IsaacKing Only while you're on your feet, surely - once you're on your arse it must become a slide?
