Lol this afternoon's commute is gonna suck.

Wonder if it was a rat bridging one of the third rails at the platform at penn station.  It's frankly a miracle any of that even runs.
/I don't think the 5:45 amtrak to boston has ever been on time, thankfully that's not my train.

NY is never jealous subby. Nope, not our style.

Maybe if it were Boston or Baltimore, but not NY.

The department of redundancy department says "They must really like heavy smoke."

We need to stop that smoke before it gets to the water.

I was wondering what that smell was.

There's usually smokers at the entrance of Penn Station. Probably what's confusing everyone. Nothing to see here, move along...

This is "heavy smoke":

I somehow doubt that a track fire qualified. I also don't like the "heavy" modifier for smoke anyway; it's a subjective term. I'd just call that picture "smoke showing" were I giving a size-up.

Is this a well-coordinated, poorly-executed terrorist action?

Heavy smoke has been known to look on occasion like heavy smoke, it's a poorly understood phenomenon, but scientists at CERN are hooping that they will have the answer soon.

You mentioned smoke.

Yes.

Would you say heavy smoke?

Is there any other kind?

If it burns when you pee, you should probably see a doctor.
