Anyone else have extreme anxiety when they were flopping around that platform and you could hear the train rolling up in the background? Intense shit right there!

bedbugs

Gawker: If you’re a regular commuter or tourist in New York City, here’s some exciting news: Earlier this week, MTA officials discovered that three N trains were infested with bedbugs. The New York Daily News reports that two of the trains were taken out of service while a third was sent for fumigation. “When we found them, we exterminated them,” Metropolitan Transportation Authority spokesman Adam Lisberg told the Daily News. At least some of the bugs were found in the cabs used by the trains’ motorman and conductors; it’s not clear if any were discovered in the passenger area.

Theyyyyyyy’re baaaaaack! Let’s be honest, they never went anywhere but it’s been a while since the last big outbreak of bedbugs in NYC. Let’s just put this on our list of things this great summer has brought us like sweltering heat, sky rocketing rent, and possible Ebola. What was it Frank Sinatra said? If you can make it here, you can make it anywhere? Yes, I’m starting to think that is very true!

Some Guy Farted On The Train; Here’s Everyone’s Reaction

Our cameraman admitted to farting on the subway and as you can see it looked absolutely terrible. People seeking air as if the train were filling up with mustard gas. The only thing that could make it worse is if the train got stuck–oh wait, that happened too. You gotta give it to the guy though, he not only took pride in his own stench but was a dead giveaway by filming everyone with a smile on his face.

 

 

 

If there were ever one time where the 5 second rule did not apply it’s gotta be on the NYC subway, right? You could not pay me enough money to eat something off the floor regardless of how long it was there. I would not be surprised if this chicks tongue fell off 5 minutes later.

Man Blocks Subway Doors; Passenger Get Involved

How annoying are these people? And by ‘these people’ I mean anyone who holds the subway doors when you’re already 10 minutes late for work. I’ve been on trains before where girls block the doors while 4 of their friends are still trying to get through the turnstiles. It’s annoying as hell and there’s pretty much only one way to deal with these people:

 

 

 

 

There’s been a lot of shit going on in the subway this past week but none that really top what happened on the Q train yesterday. Some ratchet chick decided to turn a pretty empty car into a fuckin’ slip-n-slide. Yes, she was sliding around the floor of the subway car on her stomach like a massive walrus. I believe one commenter put it the best way possible: I think she just caught the herpagonasyphilaids. Ha! She would be lucky if that’s all she got.

Sao Paulo – As a claustrophobic person I can tell you that this is my ultimate nightmare. Not sure how far that drop is over the side of the balcony but I would certainly contemplate jumping. If this is what the subway looks like a couple weeks prior to the World Cup then I don’t even want to imagine what it will look like come the first game. Forget a terrorist bomb–getting crushed to death would be my main fear!

No idea what this fight is over and don’t care. Also don’t care how old this guy in the glasses is–don’t punch someone if you’re not ready to get punched back.

FACT: When you low-blow a dude in the nuts multiple times, expect to get your head kicked in.

Gothamist: A man survived a scary close encounter with the A train in Manhattan that was captured in a disturbing video. The tipster who sent us a copy of the video told us they believed it was shot at the 175th Street station: “The man on the tracks in this video is clearly on something as his friend is pleading with him to get off the tracks.” Warning: the man did survive the incident, but it is still very unnerving footage to say the least. A man survived a scary close encounter with the A train in Manhattan that was captured in a disturbing video.

MTA spokesman Kevin Ortiz says the incident occurred this past winter, on December 28th, 2013, around 3:15 a.m. “The male originally refused medical aid but was forced to go to Columbia Presbyterian hospital as an emotionally disturbed person with EMS,” Ortiz explained.

 

OK so this happened a while back but only now is a video surfacing. I give a lot of credit to the guys trying to help but there comes a time when you can only do so much for a disturbed person. Thankfully for him he didn’t touch the third rail and was lying in the subway well so the train passed over him. Pretty crazy shit.

 

 

NYC Rat Terrifies Commuters On The A Train

Youtube: A usually boring Monday morning commute to work at Brooklyn was stirred up by this little guy. He joined us at the Fulton street station on the A train going downtown. Someone getting off the train was screaming “RAT on the train!”. But by the time everyone realized what was happening, the doors closed and the train entered the tunnel. We were stuck with him till the other end.

 

Well I guess that’s one way to snap out of your Monday morning funk than spending $10 on a Starbucks coffee. Imagine the terror on people’s faces when someone yells RAT just as the subway doors close? Pure panic. And this is the A train baby! No switching in between cars on this one.

Side note: Love this lady! It’s like she’s been there and done this a million times with this positioning.
