Bwoglines: New York Public Transit Is Trash Edition

Ah, Wednesday. It rhymes with Shmendsday, and Frendsday, and Tendsday etc. etc. etc.

Happening in the World

Singapore is — yet again — cooler than the rest of the world. Are you shocked? We certainly aren’t.

Happening in the US

Aunt Becky & Co. want evidence to be presented before them before any substantial motions are made against them. Turns out, they’re probably still gonna go to jail! Who would have thought!

Happening in NYC

We all know the MTA is shit — evidenced by the fact that the 1 Train frequently bypasses our beloved 116th St. Station without any warning, like, every other week.  But who knew the ferries were shit, too! We love that. We love NYC.

Happening on Campus

Tomorrow from 8:30 to 9:30, be sure to swing by the Satow Conference Room in Lerner to hear Rachel Foster — Founding Co-Chair and Executive Council Member of World Without Exploitation — talk about women in poverty and combatting commercial sexual exploitation.

Fun Fact of the Day

As we get older, the pigment cells in our hair follicles gradually die. When there are fewer pigment cells in a hair follicle, that strand of hair will no longer contain as much melanin and will become a more transparent color — like gray, silver, or white — as it grows.

    @anon Is it true they are going to have ferries to the slip on the West Harlem Park on 125th Street and Hudson River?

    As sitting is the new smoking, transit riders must always stand to avoid bladder flappers and beaner skid marks.

    Pedestrians will cross busy intersections with underground concourses. Parades will tak eplace in parks, not streets. Cyclists must dismount at busy intersections. Drivers who force cyclists into illegalities will lose licenses. Anyone using the wrong (left) side of the stairs will be banned from the subway for a month. Anyone feeding pigeons will be forced to drink a full cup of their fresh droppings. Commercial trash must be stored, if not moved, underground.

    Crossing tolls and transit fare will be congestion priced proportional to number of users in the previous two hours. Subway should be twelve bucks at 7:30 am & Pm and one buck at 1:30 pm & am.
    That’s real congestion pricing. It would fix the subway overload!

    Schools and libraries will be replaced with free wimax services.

    Tax older energy guzzling cars and appliances.

    No curbside delivery during rush hours. All inner city taxis (medallion and ride share) must be electric. Air conditioning should only use solar power (if you keep it cool during the day, it will be cooler at night).

    Build a loop subway at the city half-radius connecting retail workers with major malls.

    An uninterrupted LI-NJ tunnel as well as east-west cross-Manhattan underground highways will be built.

    Thrice-lost homeless will be implanted with GPS and infusion pumps.
    Cameras will track panhandlers, performers and vagrants on trains and stations.
