    30 minute for Euwell Gibbons of the NTSB to tell us that the NTSB don't know shit. They've been investigating since 7am and they haven't spoken to the engineer; they haven't analyzed the black box data; they don't know if it was moving too fast; they don't know if the corner is too sharp. They aren't even sure what day it is.

    New York train crashes are the best. Cause of the water.

    I like when you're on the train into NY and it just fucking stops....and sits there for 2 hours. If there is any info at all as to why they say 'fire on the tracks'

    Yet when you eventually get moving you never see any evidence of a fire

    once i actually saw the tracks on fire at Atlantic Ave in Brooklyn. the train hit the fire at full speed. scared the shit out of the kids who lit it and were waiting for the cars to slow so they could throw rocks at us.

    if you see what this guy looks like, you would swear Euwell had a twin. I was waiting for him to say the cause was wild hickory nuts.
