What are you prepared to do?

…so saith Sean Connery’s character Jim Malone in “The Untouchables.”

“Naturally the activities presented here are dangerous and concern varying degrees of legality but I’ll spare you the disclaimer and hypocrisy of “do as I say, not as I do” and offer a short list of situations I or my friends found ourselves in from which you can choose for yourself your own (in)actions.

  • qx dropping his keys and having them land perfectly balanced on the third rail
  • being 10 seconds from running headlong into a ghost train near Vavin
  • sprinting out a raccord tunnel after a robot train started up automatically just as we reached it
  • hiding on the floor of a layed up train near molitor waiting for the cleaners walking by to leave
  • meeting workers in an old station and them being totally cool with us, then having a nap on the ground while waiting for the trains
  • Being chased away from a tunnel into a yard by a single security guard yelling “bougez pas bougez pas!”. Yeah right!”
