Guy Hilariously Attempts To Bring His Ginormous Dog Onto The Subway In The Tiniest Bag

People trying to bring large dogs on the New York subway isn't a new thing.

But a recent video shared to Twitter brings a whole new level of ridiculous to the practice.


According to MTA rules:

"No person may bring any animal on or into any conveyance or facility unless enclosed in a container and carried in a manner which would not annoy other passengers."

This has led to an assortment of absurd conveyances for people's oversized pooches.

There is even an Instagram page, @BagDogs that collects photos of the "bags" that people use for their large dogs (Ikea bags seem quite popular).




There's even the odd bag cat!


Most recently, Twitter user @WillSCourtney witnessed a doozy of an attempt to ride with a huge dog in a harness-like bag made of burlap.

Unfortunately, the would-be rider was too close to the front of the train, and the conductor refused to let him board.


Courtney told Gothamist that the owner was:

"about to board the train and happened to be trying to get in the doors near the conductor's cabin, and the conductor spotted him and called him out, told him he couldn't come on the train with the dog, which is right around when I started rolling,"

This wasn't the first time the owner had tried to ride the train with his dog in the same "bag":

"I talked to the dog's owner for a little bit afterwards; he said that he'd been carrying his dog in that setup for a long time, and had never had a problem before that day."
"For what it's worth, as soon as the train pulled away, he set the dog down. It seemed very calm and content—not stressed out or anything by the ordeal or by being in the bag."

The rule that dogs must be in some sort of container seems like a good idea on the surface, but a bag or carrier doesn't prevent a badly-behaved dog from barking or otherwise behaving badly.

All it does is make well-behaved dogs have to be mildly to moderately uncomfortable just to get from point A to point B with their owners.

Uber or Lyft often aren't viable options for dog owners either, as they can be extremely expensive if you have to go any significant distance. There are quite a few drivers who will refuse to take animals, no matter how well behaved, as well.

Maybe it's time to rethink the "BagDog" policy and come up with something that works for everyone, including our four-legged friends.

People Explain Which Lessons Aren't Taught In History Class But Should Be

It's highly believed that it is important to learn history as a means to improve our future.

What is often overlooked is that what is taught in history class is going to be very different depending on where you went to school.

And this isn't just internationally, even different regions of the United states will likely have very different lessons on American history.

This frequently results in our learning fascinating, heartbreaking and horrifying historical facts which our middle or high school history teachers neglected to teach us.

Redditor Acherontia_atropos91 was curious to learn things people either wished they had learned, or believe they should have learned, in their school history class, leading them to ask:

So apparently we are in the endemic phase of this nonsense.

We have light at the end of the tunnel.

So what now?

Where do we go from here?

Normal seems like an outdated word.

How do we get back to normal though?

Is it even possible?

What are reaching back to?

Life pre-Covid.

Those were the days.

If only we could bring them back.

Redditor hetravelingsong wanted to discuss our new normal in this hopeful "endemic" phase. So they asked:

"What’s something random you miss about pre-COVID times?"

What do you believe?

Is there a GOD in the sky?

Is he guiding us and helping us?

Life is really hard. Why is that is a big entity is up there loving us?

Atheists have taken a lot of heat for what feels like shunning GOD.

What if they've been right all along?

Maybe let's take a listen and see what they really think.

Redditor __Jacob______ wanted to hear from the people who don't really believe all that "God" stuff. They asked:

"Atheists, what do you believe in?"

The list of what irritates me is endless.

I mean... breathing too loud or dust can set me off.

I'm a bit unstable, yes.

But I'm not alone.

So let's discuss.

Redditor Aburntbagel6 wanted to hear about all the times many of us just couldn't control our disdain. They asked:

"What never fails to piss you off?"
