Yes very funny.

Some of the comments are stupid:

"Why didn't they stand next to the doors when they opened?"

and

"What does a leg injury have to do with sitting on the subway all day?"

At least they got their names more correct than last time. There they had "Adham James and Andi Fisher" in the previous article. :)

I didnt know they did a follow up article i do a write up of my actual slow attempt on the friday You cant really support on the network here but he did really well despite not remembering to look out at a certain station for me or he was too fast i dont know i but i lost him.Perhaps a reverse of your route would work better Adham especially as i didnt lose any time at all for the first few hours.

Well i had trouble when a stupid subway driver shut the door on my hand nearly breaking it after lugging my suitcase off my other bag was left inside and gone!forcing me to stay 3 days longer in New York to get an emergency passport to get me home.

This aside there are some lovely good looking women in New York and plenty of good Irish Bars contary to what i said the system is quite easy to follow despite MTA constantly doind enigineering works and its not helpful having a driver not telling u that is E train changed into a M train then u cant get an E train from a certain station but u could one station furhter back!

I don't see the connection between standing next to the doors and having to wait for them to open at the end of a line, as one commenter mentioned on that article. What's that about?

Myself a Paul Fraser Webb (member of this forum, hasn't posted for years), did a days research in New York whilst i was living there, yes. Then it got broken by Matt & Chris Solarz, and eventually on my travels went and met up with Chris and had a loong discussion about it all. Then i got busy doing other things, and never made an attempt, no.

in other news, I am at a loss for words as to what to make of Adham's mohawk. :-D
