In America we call this a lawsuit waiting to happen

This isn't a real post about trains in Japan - but let's see how uploading a video works...

Yeah! Ok, so this is a freight train (duh) sluicing its way along the national rail tracks cutting between all the local, express, rapid express, and limited express trains running on the same set of tracks. It may not be going THAT fast, but remember f=m•a (force equals mass times accelration) and I'm guessing the "m" is the big part of this equation. Needless to say that standing behind the yellow line is a most wise idea, and poor timing with a arms-spread stretch waiting for your morning train could mean you only have to stretch one arm from now on.
