    Stairs in medieval castles did this at defensive chokepoints, because of this reaction. The people living in the castle knew about the gimp step, but anyone trying to attack the place wouldn't. Attacker charges up stairs, trips on step, dies with a spear in his neck. **Edit:** Two requests so far for more on castle design, so here's the link I posted in a comment earlier: http://medieval.stormthecastle.com/essays/secrets-of-medieval-castles.htm
