DISCUSSION

If I was absurdly wealthy I would certainly do the occasional self indulgent thing, including to my home, but a slide wouldn't be one of them.

Maybe I'd have a TARDIS door, or a secret passage, or an indoor bridge, or a steampunk home theatre, but a slide seems very specifically childish, and somewhat dangerous.
