I’ve decided to invent a new condition to here fore be known as “Tube Lung” and diagnose myself with it. This commonly effects those people who are forced to ride the underground for 30 minutes or more every day, breathing in the air every other member of the unwashed masses have just breathed out! Seasoned travelers will eventually build up a natural immunisation against it but still suffer from what might be mistaken for a smokers cough but is in fact Tube Lung. The only known cure for this is to stop using the tube but for most this is not an option. It affects the young and old regardless of age and may be fatal in conjunction with other respiratory disorders!
Do you suffer from Tube Lung or know others who have been struck down in the prime of their lives by this potentially debilitating disorder? If so join my class action law suit…
Someone’s got the right idea!
Joking apart, I’m convinced breathing in the air underground is about a healthy as sticking your face in front of an exhaust pipe at times 🙂 One day, far far away, we will have trains with filtered air conditioning, until that time just pray that SARS or Bird Flu don’t get you first!
So aside from being asphyxiated in London what have I been up to? Aside from work not much I’m afraid. Ironic that now I have all the wonders of London on my doorstop that I don’t have enough time to enjoy them!
