enough to lend to. A degree of friendship called slight when the
object is poor or obscure, and intimate when he is rich or famous.

well, I think of my sex life.

Actually, the probability is 100% that the elevator
will be going in the right direction. Proof by induction:
N=1. Trivially true, since both you and the elevator
only have one floor to go to.
Assume true for N, prove for N+1:
If you are on any of the first N floors, then it is true by the
induction hypothesis. If you are on the N+1st floor, then both you
and the elevator have only one choice, namely down. Therefore,
it is true for all N+1 floors.
