I wouldn't, but that's actually old footage. That's actually footage from a long time ago for a line to get Culture Club tickets. If you pause it you can see Ian near the front.

unbelieveable.

to me most amazing was their orderliness.

a typical Israeli would just cut in line 10 people from the start.

Wow! Would never wait in a line that long.

Whoa, hold on there, try cutting in line at about 3 people from the start. When my dad was in Israel, he said he was second in line to get on the bus, and didn't even get on! From what I hear, in Israel, you have to constantly yell at people and fight for what you want, that coming from someone who spent 2 years in Israel. (my mom)

Aviation, so your dad was second in line but people were cutting in line behind him and he didn't get on the bus? I'm thinking your dad was second from last in line.

Is that why everyone is yelling whenever I see news reports from the middle east? :D

Seriously, I wouldn't wait in a line like that for anything.. especially overpriced Apple products.

WOW! I never knew how much of a moron you were. Think about it, people cut IN FRONT of him. If people cut behind you, how does that effect your place in the line? WOW! Cutting in at the third person was simply an example of what would happen there.

But you said they cut third and he was second. That would mean they cut behind him. You are correct that people cutting behind him wouldn't affect his place in line which is why what you said makes no sense at all.

By the way, I'm freaking Nostradamus:

"I wonder what its like to sit amongst each other and barely able to form complete sentences and even less able to understand anything anyone says."

You failed to form a reasonable sentence and failed to understand what was written. You are today's failure. And yesterday's, and all the days before that, as well as all days in the future. What is it like to be 12 and already have peaked and not very high? It baffles me that of all the millions of sperm, the one that created you won. It makes one wonder what the loser sperm would have made.

Hey hey hey girls, put the handbags away for pity's sake :roll: :lol:

Round here we get the opposite. Everyone's going "after you", "no you were here first, don't mind me", "yeah but...", and in the meantime some 80-year-old granny cuts in and gets served first :-?

When I was in Tokyo on a business trip about four years ago, I was surprised by the following, since people were very hospitable and very polite and nice:
On the subway, prospective passengers literally shove each other to get in *; in comparison, NYC rush hour subway riders seem like the most well-behaved people.
I even remember a short well-dressed woman pushing a big gentleman.

* I am not talking about the (Government?) appointed people pushers.
No, it's not a joke - officials actually push people in rush hour trains.

transportation is a very serious problem there.

yes, that's more or less true.
Israel is'nt a place for the faint-heardted, or the overly-polite. they get stomped over.
living in Israel is (in some ways) an exercise in a social "survival of the fittest" (of the strongest).

the fact that i said "cut in 10 places from the start" while you said 3 - that just goes to show you that i'm not a typical Israeli...i would feel uncomfortable cuttin in 3rd place...a typical Israeli would have no qualms about it...
