New York Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced today that the state is accepting applications from companies to test autonomous cars on public roads.

Driving around Manhattan can hardly be considered driving because there’s so much damn traffic and construction and crazy taxis and people on the street.

Recently, footage of a woman melting down on a New York City subway while trying to sell bugs went viral. There wasn’t much context until Friday, when the woman behind the stunt—who, not according to plan, peed during it—admitted it was a prank intended to bring awareness to homelessness and mental health.
A crazed woman trying to sell bugs on the D train last night got heckled, freaked out, and then threw bugs on everyone, as the New York Post reports. If you’re wondering what it’s like to live and commute in the New York City subway system, here you go.
