Is this as big of a problem everywhere else than it is in NYC? Every other week I feel like someone is flinging themselves on the subway tracks here. Out of all the ways you could kill yourself why would you jump in front of a train pulling into a station? The trains aren’t moving at top speed and there’s a chance it won’t even kill you. I would be so pissed if I was trying to kill myself and just got my legs steamrolled. If things were bad enough before, NOW you have even more reason to kill yourself. Here are my top 5 worst ways of offing yourself:

5) Jumping off a building – I’m terrified of heights as it is and the fact that I could accidentally land on someone on the ground is pretty unfair of me.

4) Cutting down the river – I have no problem with the sight of blood but slitting my wrists kinda seems painful and the fact that I have to sit there and watch myself bleed out sounds boring.

3) Jumping in front of a train – See above.

2) Setting yourself on fire – Why would anyone want to torture themselves like this? You literally live most of the time you’re burning and going through the worst pain ever.

1) Diving in a wood chipper – I know this sounds crazy but I heard a story a little while back of a guy who took his wallet out of his pocket and nose dived into one of these bad boys. I only hope it was a quick death for his sake.

 

Gothamist: Five people suffered minor injuries in a bizarre and terrifying escalator malfunction at the Exchange Place PATH station this morning. Because really, the last thing you want to have happen on a Monday morning is to have your crowded “up” escalator start going down. Fast. Port Authority spokesman Ron Marsico confirmed that five people were hurt when the escalator started moving in the wrong direction. “Fortunately none life-threatening,” he added. The cause of the accident is not currently clear—however we wouldn’t be surprised if the damage from Hurricane Sandy had something to do with it. This escalator accident comes almost exactly a year after an escalator malfunction at the World Trade Center PATH station caused serious headaches and claustrophobia-inducing photos (but thankfully no injuries).

 

Not gonna lie, I couldn’t help but laugh at the beginning of this. Men jumped up, laying on the side of the escalator like the Titanic going down. Maybe if we weren’t the fattest country in the world people could keep walking up the escalator like a stair master instead of all them piling up at the bottom. OR maybe someone could’ve just hit that big red STOP button. Either way dying in an escalator accident must be one of the worst ways to go out. And as for the bitch screaming at the end like a train just ran her over, I get that it’s scary but man up!

 

And this lady will probably be voting in the upcoming election, probably has to be responsible for kids, and I’m assuming somehow gets through everyday life believing that deer only cross the street where the signs tell them to. Fargo truly is a special place.

 

Yes, she was holding a kid and yes they were OK. To be honest I have no idea what the outcome of this was but I hope they were OK. Next time try not to board the train that’s at the station across the tracks, hun.

 

So by now hopefully most of our readers understand where the idea of this website came from. Friday we had rats running up women’s pants and now we got Kid Cudi and his white friend jumping from platform to platform. The shit that goes on down there rarely makes sense but as long as it’s documented, who cares?

Sidenote: Never seen the subway this empty since Cloverfield. The fuck is going on?
