Does this look soothing to you? The good people at JR Railways East will be installing blue "emotionally soothing" LED lights along their lines. Don't believe me? Here's the story.
I haven't been victim to it since I've been here, but many people accept it as a fact of life-- metros and trains are often delayed because there's a high amount of suicide as people throw themselves off the platforms.
So, yeah, the photo's a bit of an exaggeration, but I can think of a lot of ways to solve the national stress problem than just blue lights. And I'm not sure how much of it is being done out of the kindness of their hearts and how much of it is simply because those pesky suicides always delay their trains. Oh, and its to celebrate their 100th anniversary?
