  1. David, This made me laugh! “Something called Deadly Drops: Eaten by an Escalator (!) was 120,000 in 2 cities”
    I am now wondering what it was 😀 Sounds like a catastrophic incident in a shopping centre!

    1. Would have been a clip show of people recording the results of assorted accidents with escalators which due occur fairly often around the world-not all that interesting though…

          1. Sorry David, what i mean is there a website that shows how many people buy the Main Event like WWE PPV, UFC & or Boxing.??
            For example in the USA there’s a couple websites i know that show how many people bought the Main Events respectively. They are very good..!
