People or farm animals?

This video epitomizes a lot of what I don't like about people:

Granted, things here in NY aren't that bad (unless you have to use the ONE subway line on the East Side (the most worthless of the Sides, I must say)), but what you're seeing is a result of the same asinine stupidity concentrated on a much denser population.

You'll notice that although it takes some squeezing, more and more people keep fitting onto the train. This means people centered between the doors inside the car aren't moving in to let others on, even though it's pretty clear there are a lot more people that will be getting on the train. Plus, the cooperation of the conductors and the docility of the people being packed like Spam demonstrate that this is a daily occurrence at this stop. These people know this will happen every time, yet they still don't get it. They still don't make room until the staff are forced to push them together like self-important little lambs carrying briefcases.

You know what I'd do if I was on that train? I'd wait til the doors closed and we started moving, and I'd totally cut the loudest fart ever, then immediately start yelling at people for being so gross in public.
