random stuff

Packed in Like Sardines

There is no way, NO WAY, I’d live like this. To avoid being stuffed into a situation where I couldn’t breathe (God forbid someone FARTS, or has bad breath, or forgets to put deodorant on that day, or sneezes, or COUGHS, or needs to throw up), I would wait HOURS for the crowds to subside. Seriously. I would just hole up in a cafe somewhere and read or something.

Just watching this video makes me hyperventilate. I wouldn’t go so far as to say I have claustrophobia, but situations like these, where I find it hard to get a breathe of fresh air, definitely drive me to the panic edge. I’m pretty sure I’d have a panic attack.

This is just insane. How can this even be safe?! What if the car breaks down? What if you’re in the middle of that mess and your stop comes up? How in the world can you squeeze through and get off?

Does anyone else find this nuts? Have you ever ridden in a subway car THIS crowded before?

P.S. I found this gem via @agentninety9 on Twitter. If you’re not on Twitter, why not? You’re missing some pretty cool stuff. Follow me and let’s waste time together. 😀

P.S.S. On an unrelated note – do you realize that 5 Minutes for Mom’s Ultimate Blog Party is coming?? I’d tell you just how terribly excited I get when this annual blog party comes around, but I’d likely scare you, so suffice it to say, I CAN’T WAIT! (5 Minutes for Mom haven’t announced when the 2010 party is yet, but if they follow years past, it should be the last week in March. Mark your calendars!)
