I have heard of some baseball or football fans going across the United States from stadium to stadium just to say they have been to all of them.

While on such a trip, take along a BINGO like card that has each city's name on it and next to each name a list of different smells. While in each city's subway system, check off what you smell. No cheating!, you must shower on your trip. When you have completed the card you can mail it to whatever company has sponsored it and recieve a life time supply of disinfectant/deodorant/clothes pins.

Stop and take time to smell the hobos.

       This assumes, perhaps correctly, that the travelers present at the time influence the overall smell. Therefore, it differs depending on what time you are in the subway.
