How Not to Get a Date on the 6 Train... harassing a nice young woman as soon as she sits down next to you in the only free seat, and then telling her you wouldn't sleep with her if she was the last woman on earth. But that's what this guy (bottom right, not a great shot) did. And continued to hassle her ("white bitch" "nasty skank" etc.) despite her impressively cool-headed ignoring of him. Then tell "come on baby" as she gets off the train.

So yeah, all you heteroguys out there, take note. The whole sexual harassment pick up strategy doesn't work so good.

(in the spirit of full disclosure, the woman thought he probably had mental health issues or was drunk/high, but I heard him speaking quite lucidly before she got on)
