  1. Too bad the subway cars are supposed to melt away. They could really mess with the minds of archaeologists 500-1,000 years from now.

  2. That subway article is awesome. The first comment is insightful, it makes me wonder what aliens would think if they visited us. “So you’re mining metal AND dumping it into the sea? interesting.”

  3. Nice one on the subway cars. I’d heard of this happening, but had no idea it was so widespread – or successful. Wish he’d taken a few photographs after the fact – marine life forming in and around the submerged subway cars. Something to think about next time I’m in a subway deep underground . . .
