    You think this is congested? People doing their daily grooming on the subway, in public. Go to New Delhi.

    “People clipping their nails?”
    “Toenails, too.”
    It’s a little odd, but as long as they’re not trying to clip _my_ nails, I can _live_ with that. It is a bit unfortunate, though, that this is not being paired with an effort to increase the capacity of the NYC subway. For a few _decades,_ now, it has been at capacity.

    The NYC Subway is such an embarrassing disgrace to the city. Foreigners from all over the world come and are shocked to see our old, decrepit, outdated transport system. I love my NYC but our subway is in serious need of a major overhaul.

    So.. NYC needs more money to upgrade their subway system… Going to charge drivers tolls… more tolls.. then drivers just park and use the subway in… NYC herds more people onto already crowded and underfunded subways.. charges passengers more.. and more.. what a brilliant idea.. passengers paying more to be crammed into sardine cans..
