For some time now, many of us here in Shalampax have had the feeling that our building is leaning to one side. Most of us ignored this feeling as we assumed that it was merely a result of our near-constant intoxication. However, it turns out that our drunkenness, perception-skewing though it may be, was not the explanation. The building is indeed listing.
This was confirmed when Tornunderwear unexpectedly found herself briefly sober. She wandered down to the basement, hoping beyond hope to find some hooch that someone had inadvertently discarded. Stumbling around in the mess down there, Tornunderwear tripped on a spirit level that someone had left lying on the floor.
Before trying to extract and consume the spirits out of the spirit level, Tornunderwear noticed that the bubble indicated that the floor was definitely not level; not even close. Fortunately, she had the presence of mind to inform the government of her discovery and her measurement was confirmed. The building is tilting about nine degrees to the west.
