    I know. The last thing one hopes to see in a chapter entitled "female reproductive system" is a line graph.

    apparently this morning somebody decided to take a wee on the tracks at Union Square. Not cool.

    A train apparently agreed with my assumption and laid the smackdown.

    So there is a homeless woman who gets to the station at about the same time I do on a semi-regular basis. Why she is getting to the subway at 7 AM on a regular basis is beyond me as clearly she has no obligation to be in any particular place, especially at 7 AM (maybe she is just there all the time, I dunno). Anyway, she smokes old cigarette butts down at the end of the station and tries to hide behind a pillar, but obviously the entire place fills up with cigarette smoke.

    Maybe her shelter kicks everyone out at 7?

    It could be the reason behind her morning schedule...

    The subway made me 45 minutes late to work. Fuckers. And in the crowded train there were many feet on my shoes. Not happy. Very sweaty.

    This is hilarious! I laughed so hard.

    Here are some recent snaps from my travels on the subway. I have a bunch more on my phone I'll upload tomorrow.

    Yesterday I saw the most disgusting homeless person I have ever seen on the train. I don't know if it was a man or woman. I didn't even think it was a person at first. I thougt it was a pile of dirty rags on the bench until it moved. Its hair was a giant knotted dreadlock, not for style, but purely from neglect I would imagine. Covered in dirt and dust. It was a horrible sight. I felt truly bad for this person.

    thank you, davesmith, for posting those here. I saw them in DT and was going to re-post them in this thread but forgot. Looking forward to seeing more.

    Personally, I have been making more of an effort to photo worthy moments, but there just haven't been that many as of late. A few weeks ago, returning from a Rangers game, I saw a man on the subway with a tattoo on the top of his hand, and I'm 90% sure that tattoo said "Rape". I didn't photo for my safety (note: story is 100% true and I don't make stuff up on SF for shits and giggles, this is my life).

    You're welcome! Not only do I believe that story but I'm sure the rest of the tattoo said "is perfectly acceptable".

    Here's 1 more. I'll post a couple of videos later
