The best book to NOT read when riding public transportation is…

December 16, 2014 at 4:06 pm

Subtlety is not his game, I guess. Poor chap gets caught reading this book on the subway, while sitting next to a lady. It makes you wonder what was his “success rate” meeting women on subways after he finished reading this book. Guys like this are one reason why you can’t help but fall in love with public transportation, right? I bet you can never catch someone reading this in a car.

step 1: hide that book

Given the high number of road deaths around the world (~1.2million fatalities/year globally and ~34K in the US alone), we can definitely use something like this to get the kids ready for the road ..  It is quite funny with all the innuendos and not-so-subtle references to sex-ed. (BTW, looking at the number of hits the video has garnered on YouTube, I couldn’t  help but wish the safety videos from Govt and other non.profit organizations enjoy this level of attention).

Escalator Boondoggle – The Never Ending Nightmare of Failed Escalators in Wash. DC Metro Documented in Video

April 13, 2012 at 3:06 pm

The video from Reason.TV  says it all. .  For those who care to read, check the Reason Foundation’s blog  post, which gives a good idea of what is  wrong with DC’s WMATA and its escalator management..

[yframe url=’′]

And seen below a customer’s creative and preemptive response for the agency’s yet-to-begin-customer survey.  After seeing the video above, don’t you think he and other riders like him are shelling $$ on this system are justified to deliver such a verdit  (actually the video doesn’t even address the plethora of other problems beyond the elevators and escalators that is plaguing the system) I’m sure many rider in the DC metropolitan area feel the same way..
