The last car of the Blue Line in the morning and evenings are your best chance for that. So I usually walk to where the last car will be. At the King St. Metro someone graffitied what you see in the pic to your left.

I don’t know what that means. To pope. To drope. I assume it should say “5 popping, 6 dropping” and I still don’t know what that means. Oh wait. I’ll google and see what comes up.
Ooooooh! It’s a gang thing. http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=5%20poppin%206%20droppin
