I know, I have Singaporean friends. Same sex relations are also still illegal there. Thank God I live in the US though.

Rat scratches passenger on NYC subway - WSJ.com

NEW YORK Authorities say a woman was scratched by a rat on a New York City subway train.

The Daily News reports (Rats! A train rodent scratches straphanger - NY Daily News ) that the woman was scratched after getting on a train in Manhattan on Friday morning. A spokesman for the Metropolitan Transportation Authority says the woman jumped back onto the platform and requested medical attention. She was taken to a nearby hospital.
It's unclear where the rat went after the attack. The train continued on its way after the woman exited.

The MTA says it cleans subway cars, station platforms and track areas of debris that may attract rodents. It says riders can help by refraining from eating in the subways and throwing trash in garbage cans.

I still can't fathom why people can't wait until they get to their destination to eat. Truthfully I don't think I ever will.

Agreed. Maybe they should also put some bathrooms in the trains to stop the public urination problem.

The only thing that never seems to occur to anyone is the [apparently outdated] concept of common sense. Yeah, I know--that's so outrageous, I never should've brought it up in the first place. (Then, you can go ahead and combine that with...dare I even commit it to writing, consideration for others, and we take the whole thing straight to Pie-in-the-Sky!)

they wouldn't have to propose these idiotic bans, if when people did eat, they threw their garbage in the pails, or take it home and throw it out. NOT throw it in the tracks, do they think the track fairy comes along and eats it up.

if people were not such pigs, we wouldn't have to have these types of bans.

Yeah I'm walking or cabbing everywhere lol. Stood right next to a subway stop last night and hailed a cab to get from MPD to east village. $12 instead of $2. But at 2am I knew I'd be walking into a rat party going down to the subway smh

"Scratched", huh? LOL. Read the Daily news article. She was attacked and forced to drop her pants and grab the thing by its head to fight it off. "Scratched" doesn't tell the half of it.
