I occasionally read worries about potential terrorist attacks on BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit), which I consider to be a valid target, especially after the subway attacks in London. Well, it appears you don’t need terrorist pumping in things like poison gas or ricin, no need to worry about getting blown up either. Al Qaeda can scratch this target off their list.
Hell, nowadays all you have to do is ride BART and you’re putting yourself risk from BART itself! From what you ask? Well it’s not from train wrecks, or fires, or even getting mugged, shot or stabbed! Nope, not even the BART Police! All you have to do is sit on their nasty-assed seats and you’re in dangerous territory!
From The Bay Citizen we get this tidbit…….
Riders on the Bay Area Rapid Transit system have long complained about germs in the hard-to-clean cloth seats. As Bob Franklin, the BART board president, acknowledged, “People don’t know what’s in there.”
Now they do. Be afraid, be very afraid! So what kind of critters reside in the seat covers?
- Skin born bacteria resistant to antibiotics (methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus) caused potentially lethal infections. (MSRA)
- High concentrations of at least nine bacteria strains and several types of mold were found on the seat.
How bad is MSRA?
MRSA is known as the “superbug” because it is resistant to antibiotics. It infects people through open wounds, attacking the immune system; 19,000 deaths each year are related to MRSA infections, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
I know all 19,000 didn’t die from riding BART, but it is a substantial number of deaths. For example, MSRA kills more people every year than all the poor souls who perished in 9/11. Thank GOD the terrorists aren’t this good.
I don’t know about you but until BART rectifies this problem I think they should rename it Bay Area Rancid Transit System, because that’s certainly what it is. This now has me wondering what’s growing in bus, train and airplane seats. Just imagine what grows in taxi cabs and in the New York Subway trains? Talk about ewwwwwwwwwww!
And the greentards wonder why the masses don’t particularly want to get out of their cars? After this I may never ride BART again. If I do I may wear a hazmat suit. You can read further disgusting details and see more disgusting photos at the source below.
Meanwhile, if you ride BART I’d suggest you sit on a plastic bag or something to avoid that fecal bacteria and make sure you look out for turds on the seat cushion. Use hand sanitizer, too! Because it’s rather evident some people don’t use ass sanitizer.
