True. I've just noticed that I get sick a lot less now that I no longer take the tube and my bank balance has improved. Apols for going off topic lol.Muzikritik wrote:I totally agree that people need to be cautious and vigilant but statistically speaking, you have a much greater chance of injury or death as a cyclist than you do as a tube passenger.
I guess for lots of people there are limited choices and this is still the easiest one. Plus there's the whole "if we lock ourselves at home, the win" mentality which Young London seem to adopt.Thriller wrote:The few times I've been on the tube in London I've felt tense due to this reason, god knows how those who have to use it every day must feel.

You can almost never prevent these things, if they check bags, they will find an other way. Ever since Ariana Grande/Manchester you can't bring bags larger than A4 paper here in the Netherlands, you have to get through security and they check your pockets etc. But they don't check people's shoes. Which leaves an oppertunity for these bastards. Ofcourse every little thing helps, so I would glady let my bags check to secure my safety. But it's scary that there are so many possibilities left for these people to keep hurting othersbiscuits wrote:Security checks are hard in the electronic way as a lot of devices don't contain metal these days.
In Bangkok, there are security gates to enter their biggest shopping centre. Takes literally a few seconds to walk through and check bags. I've always thought it was a good idea.
Us Londers are a reasonable bunch. No matter where you live in the world, the truth is it's dangerous every time you step out the front door. There is absolutely no way you could ever secure the underground and that has always been true ever since it first opened. In context I believe it's the first form of detonation (if you could call it that) on the underground since 07/07 and even then, London carried on as usual the next day.Thriller wrote:The few times I've been on the tube in London I've felt tense due to this reason, god knows how those who have to use it every day must feel.
