It’s A Gross Christmas Miracle: 2 Cops Deliver Baby On Philly Subway Train

It's A Gross Christmas Miracle: 2 Cops Deliver Baby On Philly Subway Train

I’m grossed out by the thought of someone eating on a subway train, which makes this birth story particularly nasty to me.

Two Philadelphia transit officers made a very special delivery Christmas Day, helping a women birth her baby on a SEPTA train. Around 6 p.m. Thursday night, Sgt. Daniel Caban and Officer Dorrell James met the Market Frankford line El train to aide in the delivery of one (very unlucky) passenger’s baby. Keep reading »

TGIF! This Used, Jizz-Filled Condom Has Been Tied To A Subway Pole Since At Least Tuesday!

In case you needed further proof that people behave like savage, filthy animals on public transportation, I bring you this photo of a used condom tied to an F train subway pole, spotted by a commuter and posted by Gothamist. A flurry of responses and tips later, the blog reports that the condom has been tied to the pole since at least Tuesday, with at least one tipster sending in another photo of what she thinks is the exact same condom, only she saw it way back in September. SEPTEMBERRRRR. I can’t. Either this is the work of a spunky, heh, serial prankster or the MTA really needs to improve its cleanup game. Regardless, I’m taking the 6 train to work from now on.

Brit’s Brain Goes Haywire Over New York Subway System

British journalist Bim Adewunmi has been in New York for the last few weeks and apparently taking the subway has driven her insane. Writing in The Guardian, she expresses the feeling in the most colorful way possible:

“Think of a book with an opening scene set in a village in rural England. There’s a winding country lane, and in the distance can be heard the relentlessly tuneful whistle of a milkman, and the gentle moo of a cow. Yes, there are still milkmen and there are still cows, but look closer: the cows are wearing smart white coats and jaunty little hats, delivering milk extracted from humans. Terrifying image, isn’t it?”

Everything about her description of the MTA is glorious. Some more highlights: Keep reading »

I’m sure by now that everyone has seen Men Taking Up Too Much Space On the Train, a genius Tumblr that more than adequately demonstrates the fact that we teach women to take up as little space as possible and teach the opposite to men. The blog draws regular ire from dudes, and the person (woman? I don’t know) who curates the blog is happy to just rip apart their responses, so good luck with that, guys. The most common excuse guys give is “We sit that way because we have dicks.” Ironically, I’m pretty sure that “because we have dicks” is the basic justification that’s been used an immeasurable number of times over history to do things like deny women the right to vote or own land or have autonomy over our own bodies, harass us in public all the fucking time, and block us from adequate and equal access to healthcare, but WHATEVS. Another thing people like to do with this Tumblr is write in to mock the blog by saying things like “Oh yeah you’re so oppressed because guys are taking up a lot of space on the train,” which kind of completely misses the point. So I feel like it’s my duty to say here that the point is that we teach men and women to dignify their bodies differently, and that’s worth questioning.

That being said. Keep reading »

Twerk It!

Watch Out For Rats

Eat your heart out, Miley Cyrus. Anyone can hump Robin Thicke’s Beetlejuice costume on a stage full of people. But it takes real cojones — and, um, possibly a death wish — to jump down on the tracks of the New York City subway system and twerk on the rails. DON’T TRY THIS AT HOME, KIDDIES. Don’t want to drop too low and hit that third rail. [Gothamist]
