Ahhh the joy of reader emails. This one goes in the classic pile:
Hopefully you’ll get a kick out of the new MetroFart t-shirt, just made available on DiggerTees.com.
A recent trip on the 6 train inspired this t-shirt design; I jumped on the train at 33rd street, to head home to the UES. I immediately detected a foul odor from the passenger standing next to me…only for the doors to open at the 42nd street stop, and an even fouler odor wafted in from the platform. It was unreal…
…but hey, we all come out of this winners, we now can proudly sport the new MetroFart t-shirt!
The natives are getting restless folks. In 3 separate incidents, people found themselves under subway trains.
SUWBAYblogger assumes that they were suicide attempts unless other information is available. Why? Isn’t that cold? Well maybe, but there’s good reason.
The media would report if someone were pushed onto the tracks. That would be a big story. If someone had a heart attack and fell accidentally, that would be reported too, but probably not as big.
Suicides, however, are very rarely reported (if ever) due to fear of the mentally unstable that my copy-cat the act. So when people end up on the tracks, and then you never hear anything about it, it was probably a suicide.
Anyway, there was one incident this morning around 3:45AM at the Beverly Rd Q train station in Brooklyn. Emergency workers arrived on the scene, but the person was already dead.
Then around 8:30AM, there was another jumper. This time it was on the uptown 4 train platform at Union Square. No word on that one, but going to assume there was a death there.
Then just a couple hours ago on the F line at Delancey Street, another person was “confirmed” to be pinned under a train. The patient was removed in an unknown condition.
So yeah, it’s getting pretty crazy. Next full moon, I’m just staying home.
I feel like I am running into the most bitchy people on the subway lately. I mean this week!
There seem to be an especially high number of moody bitches causing problems on the train. For what ever reason, it has still be crowded in the morning even though many schools are off this week. So I don’k know what the deal is, but the trains are more crowded than ever this week.
On that note, people think if they cause a scene, somehow it is going to make things move quicker.
Have you noticed anything?
Remember that guy that saw a girl on the subway and fell in love with her immediately? Or perhaps you remember feeling a little nauseous when you read the story.
Well now there’s a brand new site that allows you to get stalked find your missed subway love connection.
SubwayCrush.com is a new site that simply allows you to post a quick note about the person you saw in hopes that maybe they will see it and respond.
The little post lines remind me of a Twitter thread. They are just quick one-liners. However, in this case, they are organized by subway line.
It’s an interesting concept. Already has a few dozen posts.
The funny thing is, this picture was probably taken in July.
Remember when we discussed the 1,944 people who saw something and said something? Yeah, well this guy took it personally.
He claims to call the reporting hotline 3 to 4 times a day! Psycho!
Who does that? You’re not helping anything. When you call that often, you know they hang up the phone and brush you off. As a matter of fact, you’re probably on the watch list now because they think you’re a nutcase.
When they hang up the phone, they must say, “Oh it was just crazy Alan again.”
Get a grip dude.
Really? Please tell me this isn’t true.
Apparently, the subway lovers from a couple weeks ago rubbed off on this guy. (Wow, that was an unfortunate wording)
This is just like a Craigslist missed connections, only exclusive for train riders. Gonna vomit.
