"Oh, that safety-glass window shattered and no one was hurt and the train is just carrying on"
you could ask that person if they were ok for a start.
and reenacting your reactions to great applause
It's just a smashed window. I probably wouldn't say anything either unless someone was hurt.
and made a little bemused pout face
basically boils down to cultural terrorism against london
I want to move to one of those cities whose mass transportation systems are a mass of strangers breaking out into song and getting off with each other all the time.
"why excuse me, is that person screaming because the window smashed, or did the window smash because they screamed at the precise resonance frequency to smash the glass?"
otherwise there would have been a rapturous "Wahey!!!"
and I'm still not going to make eye contact with anyone.
And if anyone looked at me I'd use of my shards to cut them.
used my hand to break the fall which resulted in a huge gravelly tear across my hand. made it onto the train (yes!), sat down, only to realise the cut on my hand was bleeding really badly, and then there was a lovely bloody trail from the door to my seat. train was quite busy, not a single person said anything. i was very very happy about this.
