Floor 642 has a notice by its door, apologising for the confusion about floor numbers and pointing out that Neil_Boekend is entirely to blame ... twice.

It also contains a petting zoo in which all the animals are very dangerous to touch ... and a shop selling latex, vinyl and pvc gloves in a variety of colours.

Floor 661 contains a flock of headless chickens being tended to by robotic cockroaches which are being controlled by an AI which is plotting to convert the entire solar system into paperclips. (How tending to a flock of headless chickens contributes to this goal is unclear. Perhaps the AI expects the floor to become a tourist attraction?)

Floor 667 thus can have a stairway directly to floor 665, and many enthusiastic but unskilled budding musicians being inspired to do what they do worst.

668 is leaking blueish gray ooze and everyone who went in there disappeared without a trace. The blueish grey ooze has a density that varies significantly from measurement to measurement. A mass spectometric analyses revealed literally nothing: no molecules detected.

Floor 677 is an art installation--that consists of a few pieces of string tossed on the floor around a whoopee cushion.

There's no barrier separating you from the work, but the artist will be mighty pissed off if you touch it.
