Well then you sleep for most of the trip, which can also be handy.
"Suddenly Frodo noticed that a strange-looking weather-beaten man, sitting in the shadows near the wall, was also listening intently to the hobbit-talk. He had a tall tankard in front of him, and was smoking a long-stemmed pipe curiously carved. His legs were stretched out before him, showing high boots of supple leather that fitted him well, but had seen much wear and were now caked with mud. A travel-stained cloak of heavy dark-green cloth was drawn close about him, and in spite of the heat of the room he wore a hood that overshadowed his face; but the gleam of his eyes could be seen as he watched the hobbits."

The train systems in the US suck, I have ridden in other track based vehicles just not a train.

Things like the subway, el and regional rail, all of them are third rail based electric trains but I have a hard time considering them to be actual trains.

I just lump them all into the train category. I'm not one to split hairs when it comes to that.

And I'll usually ride the caltrain to San Francisco when going to a Giant's game, since the station is just a couple blocks from the Stadium. They even have a special train for people that are going to the game that runs once or twice that skips stops to get there faster. Easier and safer than trying to find a place to park close by.

I don't, I consider a train to be something that you can travel through multiple states on.

Yeah most major cities with a athletic arena and subway/el/rail service have express trains to get from points far out to the arena. Philly's stadiums and arena are at the far end of the subway route so the express last stop before the stadium is city hall 4 miles away.

Yeah, I never get sleepy on mass transit. It might just be that in Philly you should always be paranoid of your fellow riders.

Mini will soon go back to her owner. Me and my bro noticed she did a lot of good to the family so we're considering getting a corgi to replace her.

I stole Mezaros on an auction in HUT for 400 pucks. Now I need another defenseman, winger and goalie.

Discussing with my dad how to allow firearms for legal private use, while still ensuring public safety. It's a difficult endeavor. I am also watching Coriolanus starring Ralph Fiennes as the eponymous character.

I'm watching Swingers and looking up a few references that I don't catch or getting clarity on some of the weird phrasing of comments.

This movie is hard to pay attention to because they are still speaking in Shakespearean English, but the action is quite intense. Ralph Fiennes fighting with Gerard Butler? YUS.
