    Train Hammock

    My daughter, Pioneer Woman, saw this in a Korean newspaper in NYC and clipped it for me. Can anyone translate?



    A little more research revealed this better quality version of the same picture. Apparently it's in India.



    Here's a link to a similar situation.

    "Hammocks for transit riders are all the new rave"

    A new way to travel cross town on the Korean rail that has people saying, "ahhhhhhh". The latest addition to the cross town trains are 100 hammocks donated by Warbonnet that beat standing and holding the centerline poles. no longer will one standing have to struggle and counter balance the inertia of a train stopping and going. This man we spoke with gave praise and thanks to Brandon for making his daily commute "easier, and way more comfortable". It has yet to be seen if hammocks will be added to Korean airlines, but seeing how popular these hammocks are on the subway, it seems only a matter of time.

    That's my translation.

    I think they are talking about, how those silly Americans only use their hammocks in the woods. We always knew they weren't to smart.

    ....but their "hangle" is all wrong and they look cold. They should join hammock forums. That aside, thanks for sharing, it is very interesting.

    The title says "In order to be more comfortable on the subway ~ suspended beds"

    Still working on the rest; my resident Korling (Korean Linguist) is a few years out of the profession... but he'll get there.

    Clearly the hammocks define the First Class section of the train.
