    That's pretty amazing, Andrew. I wonder how
    much of that happens on U.S./Can. subways? A fellow
    would have to be pretty frustrated to get much
    enjoyment out of that!!!

    Well, that's Japan for you. It is a far more sexist culture, as well as being a crowded place in general. And frustration seems to be a Japanese national pastime...

    Sounds like a return to the 19th Century, actually.

    In the 1870s-90s, there were 'Women only' passenger cars on most US railways
