    I don't understand why the strangest weirdest looking people are always hanging out at street level right outside of subway stations. What is with that? Also, at the Union Square station, regardless of the time of day, it could be 3am there are always weirdos just hanging out underground sitting on benches and such. What do these people do? Don't they know that right outside there is a whole park outside? Why hangout in a busy dank subway station? :confused:

    no, I didn't have time, but I did slip off my wedding ring should the proper time have presented itself.

    also, I really should have taken pictures, but the hickie tattoo guy was at an odd angle. I think going forward my excuses should be worth little as I will make every attempt and then post them here.

    I know it. Dickheads with bikes inconvenience everybody.

    What the whole toilet spins or just the water and poop inside it?

    Looks like there's plenty of room though, not too packed.

    Somebody had the bike on the train last night going home on a crowded train. I wanted to punch the fucker and throw him in front of an incoming train. Apparently this is getting more and more popular.

    I don't get why people take full sized bikes on subways, especially if the train is packed. They could ride it or if it's too far, get one that folds down to briefcase size.

    Something like this perhaps:

    oh, I remember this from a while ago, but I think it's perfect for this thread. The people we encounter. Booth, get off your "oh no videos, I'm scared" high horse and observe.
