There were no injuries since both were empty during that time.

  • I was watching the news tonight and the system was programmed to make an incoming train stop while another is still switching lines. It is possible that there’s human and technical error involved.

    Rumor has it (I made this rumor up)… rumor has it that the LRT/MRT folks were testing what happens when they make the trains go at 70kph. I think this was based on suggestions from Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo (no… the suggestion did not come frm Lacierda but from Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo). She asked for the increased speed AS WELL as the tests.

    I am glad they made the tests, what other bright ideas can come out of Congress, determining if Pilipinas has enough rice for July2011?

      UP n,

      Having started making rumor up about Gloria wanting to speed things up, lubos-lobusin mo na.

      Why not a rumor that Gloria has started suggesting to the Senate and the Congress to speed up its investigation of military corruption, the Maguindanao massacre, and other anomalies and not wait for Lacierda to make such suggestions. She wants all involved to rot in jail.

      Boy, will you be glad they’ll rot in jail.

        bert: you are so easy to bait.

        I posted a comment with full-disclosure about its lack of merit and you are still biting.

        Beware rumors. You may even think that Noynoy has already made a visit to Mindanao, finally. Oh, wait, this one is not a rumor. Kudos to Presi-Noynoy for finally making a visit to Mindanao.
