Floor 44 is a storage room, and contains primarily glass bottoms.

Floor 49 contains an anti-gravity engine because due to an error in the original construction drawings it is hovering 1 meter above floor 48 and the site manager had to solve that somehow.

On Floor 52, all of the nitrogen in the air has been replaced by a mixture of argon, helium, and xenon. The room is full of cats.

Floor 53 has a dote for the cake. (It's only Floor 52 that is preventing the dote from touching the antidote, and the subsequent massive explosion.)

Well, that's a paradox.

As quoted, not quite. As edited (just before you replied) it might now actually be exactly as paradoxical as intended. ;)

and I know there's no atmosphere,

Floor 62 has a bar, a disco and a mid-range restaurant with reasonable prices, no dress code and a decent clientelle. It has a brilliant atmosphere!

(Edit: and, of course, when you use it, you're over the moon...)

Floor 75 has waist-high wells on the floor, each containing a portal to a coral reef somewhere on Earth at some point. The one that goes to five minutes before the Cretaceous–Paleogene (K–Pg) extinction event is clearly marked with a LEGO warning sign.
