Monte, I wouldn't mock you or aviation if you guys had a pinch of sense.

go get a life.


Lemme lay it out there for you. You post the entire contents of your life on an internet forum and I'm the one without socialization? Certainly even someone of your meager ability to process thought must realize that this sounds desperate and surprised that you have anything of a personal social life to post. And someone of such little social ability and desperation is going to pretend to have the testicular fortitude to tell anyone to go get a life? Do you not see the hypocrisy?

Sorry for the nustack talk, but man....

When I think of these two, my testicles crawl up into my abdomen forming a second set of kidneys because subconsciously I fear that any kids I would have would at some point have to interact with their eventual boogerspawn.

I find it funny that aviation has criticized my postings and continues to post his drivel and even invites more dolts. And monte's M.O. is to post his life then tell people to get lives. It seems their values flip over faster than a 12 year old boy on rohypnol at a NAMBLA meeting.

Anyway, getting back to the topic...

I'm really amazed at how long that line is; I would think that most of those people would just wait for the next few days or order whatever they want online! :o I don't think I'd have the patience to wait in a line like that.

No, it's not a joke - officials actually push people in rush hour trains.

yeah, they all have to pack themselves into the train cars like sardines.
transportation is a very serious problem there.


Maybe it works better for them to have such people for more riders to get in each subway car.

Look at the world map. Seoul subway is for 30 million people. Where there is a subway station nearby, the price of every kind of houses and buildings skyrocket, like 30 percent or 50 percent up in just months. Tokyo subway is for at least 10 to 20 million people. There is no such place in Europe or North America. Biggest - most populated - cities are London, Paris, Moscow, and New York, but they are all "rural" by South Korean standard. Actually, I'm looking for new home inside Seoul "Special" City which is the official name of Seoul city. It has better be near the subway station. Seoul always has the best and first things in South Korea however inhuman it is to live there. Even the best government policies for people with disabilities, so I am trying to go back to Seoul.

Crikes, if London is "rural" by your standards Kennyshin that is frightening!!! I don't like London, far too claustrophobic.....

I'm heading over to Japan in December so doubtless I'll get an idea of the scale of things :)

To think, I live in a leafy village in the middle of nowhere with 800 people and 4 pubs (bars) :D

That's a problem when you want broadband internet though, 512K is as far as it goes :cry:

Heheheh..you guys should travel by local train here in Bombay.A train meant for 2500 people has 11000 on it...
But the people are nice, they help you get on comfortably,and always squeeze up a bit. This entire city runs on the trains.. people do 20-30Km commutes daily.
But still, travelling by our local trains is not to be missed.
