For some lines already on the boats instead of trains is quite possible to go.../По некоторым линиям уже на лодках вместо поездов вполне можно ездить...

Sandy will eliminate all rats in tonnels. But, I think smell in subway will be terrible.

Both the Canadian prick and the Slav prick need to remove their fight to some other forum outside this thread.

Apparently, my not being the main' prick is already struck I suppose your notion of squabbling right queer, considering his being pegged to my Ignore List (oooo! I sense further clicks a-cumming ) prior to my mockingly dismissive reply disproved any purpose of mine at quarreling I also now suppose your neck more that pink hue than red, coz I reckon a true macho not dare conceal his retort with some foreign tongue

Cheesh! somebody out there reveal her/his authentic ego, will ya...

Since this is a world forum, it means that forumers from different nationalities will view this thread which means that the most common language of the world - English - should be used. Imagine if everyone starts writing in his/her native language!

Right. It's not about language supremacy, etc.; it's a custom, convention that, currently, is the most convenient medium for members merely for the purpose of having these here World-based threads gel the best (Believe me, all this resurgence of banal 'language supremacy' now happening about Quebec here is confounding comraderie, revealing folks' nastiness ... nobody need revisit this crap, it's altogether aimless )

Statement from MTA Chairman Joseph J. Lhota on Service Recovery

The New York City subway system is 108 years old, but it has never faced a disaster as devastating as what we experienced last night. Hurricane Sandy wreaked havoc on our entire transportation system, in every borough and county of the region. It has brought down trees, ripped out power and inundated tunnels, rail yards and bus depots.

As of last night, seven subway tunnels under the East River flooded. Metro-North Railroad lost power from 59th Street to Croton-Harmon on the Hudson Line and to New Haven on the New Haven Line. The Long Island Rail Road evacuated its West Side Yards and suffered flooding in one East River tunnel. The Hugh L. Carey Tunnel is flooded from end to end and the Queens Midtown Tunnel also took on water and was closed. Six bus garages were disabled by high water. We are assessing the extent of the damage and beginning the process of recovery. Our employees have shown remarkable dedication over the past few days, and I thank them on behalf of every New Yorker. In 108 years, our employees have never faced a challenge like the one that confronts us now. All of us at the MTA are committed to restoring the system as quickly as we can to help bring New York back to normal.

Agreed. But there are far lesser people who can read Russian! What's the point in posting your message in a language which no one else can understand. I hope you are getting the point I am putting across.

English is merely the known language across the most frontiers; Russian, for example, isn't: What exactly is so incomprehensive about this logical rule for you, or do you just prefer perpetuating leaning toward disorderliness?

Look: Reams of pages exist on the corresponding local threads compared to their respective versions here in the World fora, so all your fuss here, coth, is just nonsense to me ... I sense ulterior motive bearing outta you. Besides, for example, not one peep from you here about the hobbling subway system: Now that! I perceive as discourteous......

False. I would imagine anyone who is literate and uses the Internet or has a cellphone can read the Latin alphabet, and this is a majority of humans on Earth.
