Floor 1041 tries to cheer up 1039 by loudly singing Blue is the Colour to the chagrin1 of other nearby floors.

Floor 1042 contains faculty offices for about a twentieth of the LUXS physics department.

(It's a very big department. The xkcd Skyscraper attracts a lot of physicists.)

Floor 1043 contains faculty offices for another twentieth of the LUXS physics department. These two groups are not mutually exclusive.

Floor 1044 contains two interlinked portals on opposite sides of the room. This portion is sealed off behind blast doors with tiny portholes for observation. There is a blur moving across the room between the portals. When the tower was first built, observers could distinguish that the blur was actually two spheres, one weighing one kilogram, the other weighing negative one kilograms. There is no external gravity in the sealed portion, which is a perfect vacuum. The masses have been accelerating for a long time.

Floor 1048 contains all corpses from the "You must not kill flicky" thread. It's noticeably less unpleasant than floor 1046, sometimes even art exhbitons are held there to make use of the mostly empty space.

Floor 1055 has "Somebody That I Used to Know" stuck in it's head. It also has the ability to implant thoughts in people's heads, so anyone on or even near this floor finds it difficult not to sing out loud. The intensity of this effect varies, based on distance, age, relationship status, number of limbs, the current (precession-adjusted) astrological sign, and the mood of the toddler on Floor 972.

Floor 1059 is subsequently all other floors, stacked in reverse order, including 1059.
Since 1059 is stacked first, and behaves in the same way, the floor is a repeating infinity of the same 1059 floors, placing itself whenever floor 1059 generates a new 'floor 1059.' They all are renamed floor 1059.

There's a little construction area at the top so you can build the next floor, don't worry.

Floor 1064 is where I was once seen wearing women's clothing.

They chased me, trying to grab hold of me, and it was only by shucking off my blouse that I wasn't immediately detained by the unreconstructed mob. To run faster, I abandoned the high heels. Yet they continued to try to catch ahold of me, and the skirt came away, while the stockings laddered and shredded off my legs through all the exertions.

Luckily, I completely escaped their pursuit soon after, albeit just in bra and panties, after giving them the slip.

Floor 1065 contains a halting oracle. If you are really lucky. What someone from an extremely lucky Everett branch doesn't know is that it is really just a quantum random number generator.

Floor 1072 has been dropped and is falling, but hasn't hit the ground yet. It has no windows, so the people inside aren't sure what's going on. They're making jokes like "did someone forget to pay the gravity bill?" They sure will be surprised when they go splat in another second or two.
