Subway Deaths Keep Coming

A man killed himself after jumping in front of No. 2 subway train at Times Square station today.

It may be time to start issuing permits to go down into the subway.

Jumped or pushed?

There are alot of suicides in Japan like this

Sucks that people feel the need to end their lives for a problem that can be solved eventually.

Time to ban the $5 foot long. Since you never know who shouldn't be having one so we should just assume we all shouldn't have one. It would be the logical thing to do. Never mind the fact that people are dying by actually jumping in front of the train, we're scared and have to do something. Anything! Just do it quickly...

Anyone noticed a shortage of lunch meats?

Man arrested in Philadelphia subway assault caught on video - latimes.com
Seems this subway thing is quite common indeed! I believe this saw national attention a few days ago.

but first, any and all persons wanting to ride a subway (train, not a sandwich) must take a mental evaluation test to see if he/she is deemed mentally competant to stand next to the tracks and NOT feel the need to push someone or jump onto said tracks. only after the individual passes the test and get registered into a nation wide database, may the individual enter the station. every five years the individual must retake the test to determine their mental stability. failure to do so will result in revocation of subway (train, not sandwich) privelages.

I am due for a high capacity assault sammich right about now.



I have noticed a pattern of people being thrown into the path of the trains lately. every news story to do with these events seem to have a common thread to them.
