    The youth really seem to like their headphones.

    I am not on the train long enough to really get into a book so I don't bother. The CFO of my company is a big fan of his earbuds. Maybe it is a Bloomberg feed.

    It does really blow my mind the amount of people who need to be listening to music every second of their lives.

    Maybe at some point. I just find it too much effort and focus. I like need to plan and set aside time for it or something. I don't know.

    watching somebody fall asleep while standing up (and doing the appropriate head bobbing) does not take much focus or time.

    I can't multitask as much watching a video.

    two somewhat unusual observations from today:

    1 - man with a poorly done tattoo of lips on the side/back of his neck. Normally I wouldn't think anything of it, but it was so poorly done that it just might be a well done tattoo of a hickie. Not sure.

    2 - a pair of really ghetto looking women (or is it ghetto looking hoes?) eating Carr's crackers and cheese dip.
