I hate those people.

At least this doesn't happen in Tokyo, people are quite efficient. Also you don't have to take out your Suica/Pasmo (transport smart cards) they work from inside a wallet or purse.

They say the opposable thumb is one of the greatest leaps in human evolution... maybe this man is from the future?

I actually had a really pleasant subway ride this morning. My girlfriend and I both got seats very easily. There was plenty of room. The train ran a tiny bit slow due to the train ahead of us being rather packed. The bonus was the absurd amount of good looking people in the car. There was a girl with a large Gucci shopping bag who was simply STUNNING. Another Persian looking girl who had a gorgeous face and perfectly shaped eyebrows. There were a couple of mixed race looking girls who were very pretty sitting next to me so I couldn't get a great look. There were even several good looking gents as well. My girlfriend mentioned how attractive our car was and I agreed.

A breakdown of various subway PSA's. I don't know if these a normal or not, lacking any sort of frame of reference.

Don't text or play games while walking. The video shows a young man texting, not paying attention, and walking into a wall.

Don't cross your legs while sitting. Animation of girl doing so and accidentally kicking somebody in the shin.

Don't walk on escalators. Shows a dummy in a suit falling down the escalator. Then shows several rows of smiling people standing side by side as the escaltor descends, staring blankly ahead.

Do give up your seat to those who are preggers. A guy reading a book doesn't notice a pregnant lady. Her young son coughs to get his attention. He looks up, covers his face in embarrassment, and gives her the seat. The man and the boy then bow to each other.

Don't try and ride for free. Video shows a young man in a suit stepping over the turnstyle while others look on in disgust. Then shows an old man obliviously walking through and tripping.

Don't light bombs on the subway. Shows a guy with a molotov cocktail and little children fleeing from the ensuing flames.

I hate it when I'm on the subway, writing about the subway, and miss my stop because of it.

They have a bad habit to set themselves on fire if things are not getting their ways...

The trains in Tokyo have "Silver Seats" for the aged, disabled people, pregnant women, and parents with small children. Fogies and gimps sure I'll give up my seat, but I have no sympathy for those with self inflicted wounds.

I always give my seats for older people,disabled,pregnant women and small childrens.

Grossly Overweight people must be forced to stand up because it is good for them anyway...

Maybe their heart, not so much their knees...
