>>902244 >NYC >Like pretty much everything else in this city, the answer is both yes and no. Pros: Lots of bike lanes, lots of cyclists. Cons: Streets are always in horrendous condition and motorists like to use the bike lanes as parking spaces. Drivers are insane but at least they know to watch out for cyclists.
When I was 9 years old (late 90s), I read a children's "country guide" book about Japan that included a photo of platform pushers squeezing passengers into a train. Later in life I saw a video of the practice, and traced it to Lyle Hiroshi Saxon's channel, it was the Seibu Ikebukuro Line from 1991. I've also seen a video of pushing on the Tokyu Toyoko Line in 2006, at Naka-Meguro.
I would like to ask, in the year 2015, if "pushing" passengers onto trains is still common in Tokyo, either on JR, private or subway lines. I've been... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>902143 They don't forcefully shove you in. The person who gets pushed wants desperately to catch that train instead of waiting for the next one. The pusher is just helping you fit in the door so the train can leave.
That's why there's no problem, they're not bullying you, they're helping you.
If you're an American, its an eye-opening experience to use and airline that actually knows customer service. Hottest flight attendants, always smiling & will actually serve you real food. Onboard movies you don't have to buy. Only real downside I've had with Emirates is that upgrades are insanely expensive. Airport at Dubai is good & bad...too large & may have to go through multiple security screenings for no apparent reason...but awesome food courts, free wifi & a real, no-shit shopping mall inside. You'll swear off US carriers forever.
Then there was my last flight with them. There was some Pakistani (?) family new to the ways of 19th-century culture & technology. No one spoke their brand of moon-speak, so flight attendants had a hard time with the toilet training. Dad stood in front guarding the bathroom while his wife & daughters did #2 with the door wide-fucking open. Fortunately, thats the exception, but damn. Pic related...squatty potty at the Dubai airport (half of them are western style).
People go to airshows because they like to watch dangerous events. Would people go to a NASCAR race if the cars went around at 60 mph with no accidents? Would folks attend the circus if there was only clowns and elephants?
