Really, really, really loud guy on the train today. The kind that empties a good half of the seats & has the remaining few looking fixedly in the other direction. There was a kind of percussive seat banging & chanting that was more or less impossible to understand. Then a rundown of his personal shortcomings, that I am much too modest to recount here. Then (and this was repeated about fifty times, in case we didn't get it) he announced the purpose of his ride: "I'm going to Coney Island to turn into a fucking rainbow!!" I wonder how things worked out.
