Seen and Heard on BART this week: golden spiral tattoo, fun facts, shop talk

Pay phone at Fruitvale BART

BART riders are a busy bunch -- taking trains to work, to play, to meet friends and travel around the Bay Area. While they're on BART they're gaming, crocheting, listening to music, reading and people-watching. Here's a fresh batch of things people saw and talked about on BART this week. We'll update this page every week so come back to see what people are doing on BART.  We compile these from http://www.twitter.com/, the social networking and microblogging service where users share short messages or tweets about what they're doing. You can follow our Twitter feed at www.twitter.com/sfbart. We're also looking for rider-contributed photos like the one on this page from Flickr user kismet_70, of a real old-fashioned pay phone at the Fruitvale BART Station. Find out more about how to contribute photos.

Note: Seen and Heard on BART is on temporary hiatus. Back later!

I can't tell if my fellow bart passengers are jealous of my cat sweater or just confused by its juxtaposition w/ my surly hangover face

I may be one of the few people who enjoys loud BART talkers. I miss the relationship drama just enough to enjoy listening to other people's.
