  •  because strangers chat on subways (none)

    I believe in saving money. I believe in having a house. I believe in keeping things clean. I believe in exercising.

    •  Exposure (none)
      It might not be the chatting, but rather the exposure to different kinds of people, different socioeconomic strata, etc.  

      When I ride Muni or BART, I don't generally talk to the person sitting next to me. But taking one bus or cable car ride downtown gives me more exposure to a wider swath of people in 15 minutes than many people get in a year of commuting to and from work in a car.
