Floor 1240 contains a slide at the side that connects to the last floor.

Floor 1241 regrets not being floor 1234, and is planning to assassinate seven lower floors.

"Therefore it is in the interests not only of public safety but also public sanity if the buttered toast on cats idea is scrapped, to be replaced by a monorail powered by cats smeared with chicken tikka masala floating above a rail made from white shag pile carpet."

Floor 1242 would be "Floor 1234 (approximately)", if only we used Base 10.023273 instead of Base 10. But so far it hasn't had any luck convincing people to switch to this new number system.

Floor 1244 is fed up with all of the other floors complaining they’re not Floor 1234.

Floor 1245 is the floor 1234 always wanted to be. Unfortunately, floor 1245 also secretly has daddy issues.

Floor 1246 is a boggart, and has full structural integrity. Don't ask who they're keeping inside.

Floor 1247 contains one of the original termini for the London cable car. The service was cut after a few years due to low ridership; however, the ghost station remains.

A sign on the wall states that there are 187 steps leading down the the ground floor, but this is clearly wrong, come on.

Floor 1248 contains a game of 2048 played on a 1024×1024 grid. Currently the largest number is 16384 but there might be two or three of it already. A group of mathematicians are trying to work out the sequence of moves required to bring them together.

Floor 1249 is currently inaccessible due to some rather confused anti-obesity campaigners picketing it in the belief that it's encouraging people to buy more food than they need.

If they weren't in the way, it'd be selling character slots in MMORPGs at a somewhat peculiar discount.
Oh, Willie McBride, it was all done in vain.

Floor 1255 contains a food court. The food court includes an unremarkable burrito joint, an overpriced pizza parlor, and an excellent doughnut shop. Truly excellent. Maybe the best doughnuts in the world. People come from all over the Skyscraper to buy doughnuts.

There may be a minor spacetime anomaly centered on the doughnut shop. As one walks past, one feels tugged toward those delicious, delicious doughnuts--and gyroscopes and pendulums precess until their axis of rotation is at a right angle to the ordering counter. As one approaches, one's belt tends to loosen and one starts feeling hungry--and inflated balloons expand slightly. It is easy to spend more time eating doughnuts than one feels like one has--and clocks in the vicinity lose about three minutes per hour relative to clocks elsewhere.

If one tries to carry a box of doughnuts outside the food court, they tend to collapse in on themselves and become a little bit misshapen: slightly hexagonal, and looking more like "old-fashioned" doughnuts than normal doughnuts. They remain delicious, though.

Floor 1256 consists of a single room, in which all objects are visible only in the form of Monge projections on the South-North and East-West walls respectively. Some have tried to use the room to teach descriptive geometry, but such attempts are usually disrupted by games of dodgeball, which apparently becomes highly challenging and entertaining game inside the room. Whether that's a consequence of the projection-vision or an unrelated unusual property of the room is unknown.

Um..
I saw floor 1258 here sometime this week, where did it go? Alan, did you put floor 1258 away again?
No, I'm not pushing the blame on you, we're trying to take inventory here.
Well, then go ask "Linda from accounting" if she knows where it is. I'm gonna go down to the warehouse to see if it's there.

Floor 1264 contains a box of birds. Birds in the box are immortal, requiring no food, air, or water to survive, but this effect fades when they are taken out of the box. It returns when the bird in question is returned to the box. Birds not from the box, however, not only do not become immortal when placed in the box, but are forcefully ejected from the box. If a bird from the box dies while outside of the box, a new bird appears in the box.

Flicky is rumored to have come from the box of birds on this floor.

Floor 1270 contains a complete repository of the events of what many term non-duels; that is, instances in which one person challenged another to a duel, but that never took place because an appropriate apology was issued or the seconds appropriately intervened to prevent the duel.

Over in one corner, the Lowermost history department has set up a small desk and lamp, with a scholar usually there to pore over the records, which capture quite a few details of the daily lives of figures in Early Modern Europe and the Americas. If someone wanders by, they're usually quite happy to explain what it is they are working on, and wryly note that as the musical says, it is indeed true that "most disputes die and no one shoots!"
