The Washington, DC area's mass transportation system, run by the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority.

Metro's flagship transportation system is the subway. It fails all the major requirements of a mass transit system, having none of the following: affordability for local governments, affordability for riders, stops in the most heavily visited places in the DC area, consistent and on-time trains, enough cars running for its ridership, and being able to go for more than a few weeks without a length of track catching fire.

The Metro was built on heavy rail because some brain trust figured that should the DC area become a war zone, it might be convenient to put freight cars and tanks on its tracks. Everyone knows that the best way to defend major landmarks is to put defensive weaponry several hundred feet underneath them, so this was a good plan.

A lot of people think the DC Metro is superior because it's clean. These are the same people who keep plastic on their couch cushions.
Metro Opens Doors... for those who can afford to ride it.

when a male, for some strange reason, looks at himself and thinks "maybe if i dress gay, ill get chicks"?. then the person goes to slutty teeny bopper shops and buys small pink singlets or shirts, which reveal his gay nipples, so that other "non gay" men that dress dumb get aroused of this appearance. soon after this they venture down to another stupid shop and purchase tight pants for ridiculous reasons. after they have all tryd on clothes infront of eachother, wondering if they look good or not, they go buy hair product to style there hair the same.
