From the CTA news of the weird file comes this story from
late last week:
CTA Red Line trains were stopped for about 30 minutes by a fire on the tracks
early Friday morning, just north of the Morse
The Sun-Times story reported that "a
bicycle fell or was thrown or somehow ended up on the train tracks, and
it hit the third rail and it caused an explosion-type fire," [police] said."
I've heard that some folks call this "fryin' the L" -- throwing some type of metal on the third rail to cause an explosion or fire. A rite of passage for kids.
Now, don't get any ideas out there, you degenerates!
