Poop Responsible For Breaking Feces-Clogged Equipment
What a nice time to be a san franciscan.
Sounds like a crappy situation.
With the removing of Medical Marijuana dispensaries in LA and now this Californian's are having to go through alot of ***** lately..
I'm a bit confused here, exactly where did they find the waste if they found it when they "opened it up?"
Loved the BART pictures.
Well all the escalators have a "return" area where the steps turn over and ride back in a closed loop. that area must have been full of ****.
How can you not smell it, its not like the escalator is that enclosed. And wouldn't there be skid marks on the skids.
i stop at the 16th St Station a few times every week.
the above ground area on the Walgreens side is an amazing little microcosm. you can buy almost anything there.
until the article in the Chronicle, i kept wondering where all of the pets were that were not getting curbed.
now, i know.
That is pretty ****** and I can only imagine the smell. Ugh
That's why I avoid public transportation. Until the general American public learns to treat public areas like the Japanese...
given that many Americans (and British, and Europeans) treat there own homes like this, i'm not surprised that public spaces, which are "someone else's Problem" are in a state, there is a "western" mentality, particularly prevalent in the english speaking world, that everything is disposable if you own it, or destoyable if you don't because the pixies will clean/replace/repair it.
Respect for each other, ones surroundings, and our fellow man has, for the most part, been ignored in the pursuit of the extra fast buck, or latest western convenience item you don't really need.
Wouldn't surprise me if the crap was from business men crapping on the escalator to save time in their busy day.
It would be better if they would use plastic seats and hard flooring for BART. Although from my experience my BART rides haven't been that bad.
But I will say, when walking in the city, be careful where you step. I've seen some "odd things" there. I swear Market Street is so freaking dirty it's making feel sick now...
Uh, so.... security cameras? No...?
You might be waiting awhile on that one. I spent almost a year in Japan and it was remarkable to me how they view the public space outside their home as not theirs to do with as they please.
Of course the percentage of homeless in the US is much greater than in Japan (.2% vs. .02%, roughly), so there are fewer people there treating the city sidewalks as their "home".
The San Francisco homeless ≠ American public. The bums in SF proper have a higher sense of entitlement-- i.e. they **** where the city has to clean it up because they like to let you know they're there.
Soylent Green is the answer!
Yet to have a more thoughtful and egalitarian society doing things like eschewing public transit out of a misplaced sense of entitlement is as antisocial and selfish as sh/tting in the escalator.
Thank you for posting this on a site about computers. This exact CNN/FOX/ABC/BBC/NPR breaking news is exactly what us computer geeks need to read.
All sarcasm aside, this is actually a really interesting story. Just the headline made me scream in my head "WHERE IS THE POOP EVEN COMING FROM?!" and I had to read more.
Shame they didn't leave it there. In 3 months time it would have made perfect compost. Each escalator could have become a moving garden
Poop comes out of buttholes.
I was reading it as "elevators" not "escalators"
Wow. I have been doing it wrong all these years. I could just poop on the floor instead of walking all the way to the bathroom!
Here's a crazy idea... how about putting toilets in the stations?
The truly amazing thing about this article to me is that there's public transport in California.
What a weird thing to say. Maybe you have never been there to think that?
One word. Ew. Lol
