Tony_Pepperoni: I can't imagine living like that day after day.
Elegy: Looks like the last time I saw a line of guys trying to get up in Subby's mom. They were packin me in.
Elegy: *'em, not me.Damn you iPhone, that was unintentionally way more funny than it was supposed to be./drink
Theaetetus: I really hate when people do this. If the train is full and you won't let people off who want to get off, how do you think there's magically going to be room for you to get on?Accordingly, when I'm stepping off the train, if someone tries to push through me to get on, I just fall on them.
The All-Powerful Atheismo: When I was in Beijing it was not that crowded, anywhere. Granted I didn't ride the subway... but every other place was no more crowded than any large city.
Gilligann: The All-Powerful Atheismo: When I was in Beijing it was not that crowded, anywhere. Granted I didn't ride the subway... but every other place was no more crowded than any large city.Cool story
The All-Powerful Atheismo: I've been to Cleveland.
Pelvic Splanchnic Ganglion: Seems like it would make more sense to queue people rather than have them mass at the doors like that. That can't possibly be safe.
AverageAmericanGuy: Pelvic Splanchnic Ganglion: Seems like it would make more sense to queue people rather than have them mass at the doors like that. That can't possibly be safe.The Chinese have not yet developed queueing technology.
AeAe: I'm supposed to go to Hong Kong and Shang Hai early next year. Is it that bad there too?
AverageAmericanGuy: The Chinese have not yet developed queueing technology.
HairBolus: AverageAmericanGuy: The Chinese have not yet developed queueing technology.You would think they knew about waiting in lines from the lean years under State Store Communism where just the rumor of something being available would cause long lines to form, as was the case in the USSR when I visited.Then again as the BejingCream article I quoted above says those governments really don't trust their people - I also saw in the USSR artificial choke points built in (to prevent the rapid movement of crowds) but unless queuing is government enforced it isn't observed.
Relatively Obscure: I would go insane in a day.
some_beer_drinker: most of the stations have glass walls, and double doors. the general behaviour of people is still the major problem. no idea about common courtesy. its all shoving, and me first. effing savages.
Lor M. Ipsum: Indeed. How are mass shootings/bombings not rampant?
danielscissorhands: Has it ever farkin' occurred to them to let people off first?Maybe this explains why Chinese immigrants in Toronto (I'm not talking all Chinese people, just a lot of the non-English speaking ones) seem to do the same thing here. Jesus Christ that's annoying!
ApatheticMonkey: AeAe: I'm supposed to go to Hong Kong and Shang Hai early next year. Is it that bad there too?Hong Kong is pretty good. At some point, the Brits appeared to have thought the people there how to queue.
