I remember when you were the reason why many people and I had to wait in the orange line.

I just saw one line in the Paris metro that has the plexiglass, one with faster trains and longer distances between stations... I thought it was a great idea.

I'm glad I live in a small place with no subway - every time I go to Toronto/Montreal/New York/Paris I'm afraid of seeing someone trying to commit suicide in the subway, and being traumatized for life

And I didn't die. I never asked people to pull the Emergency break! I just passed out...

Someone needs to explain to the general population that the metro is NOT a viable way to commit suicide.
Is that so?

Strange. How can they fail in successfully committing suicide with metros? I would have thought it was a sure bet.

Because they usually jump in front of the metro when it's entering the station, which is it's slowest pace. People get mangled and turned into vegetables much more than they successfully kill themselves.

Interesting. I would have thought they would jump right as soon as it's entering the station, when it's still going pretty fast. I'm surprised the human body can take that sort of pummeling and survive.

Nevertheless, are these individuals who fail suicide attempts then charged?

It's not going all that fast. The collission would send you ass backwards pretty good, maybe crack a rib or something, but it won't kill you, so you end up trapped under the wheels.

I don't see why people are trying all these complicated ways to end their lives, I've found getting a girlfriend works just as well.

The girlfriend leads to the wife, which presumably leads to suicide by metro.

Is there no way out of this?! A few days away from my 4 year relationship with my gf. I'd like to know if there is a de-tour out of this thing called wife!

At 9:15pm, I got briefly stuck at Beaudry Metro because someone was walking on the tracks at Peel. How many times did this happen between yesterday and today... ridiculous.
