Comfort is your Enemy… Albert Einstein
Are you feeling bored with your life? Perhaps you do the same thing every day and your life is on automatic pilot.
Need to jump start your personal growth? One of the best ways to accomplish that is to push beyond your comfort zone.
Here is one heck of a way to do that
Sunday (1/13/13) is the annual No Pants Subway Ride Day!
After covering and writing about this for a few years, I’ve discovered that it sure is a fun way to get to that place where you don’t care about what other people think of you!
If you are new to this event here are the deets from the creators Improv Everywhere
“The No Pants Subway Ride is an annual event staged by Improv Everywhere every January in New York City. The mission started as a small prank with seven guys and has grown into an international celebration of silliness, with dozens of cities around the world participating each year. The idea behind No Pants is simple: Random passengers board a subway car at separate stops in the middle of winter without pants. The participants do not behave as if they know each other, and they all wear winter coats, hats, scarves, and gloves. The only unusual thing is their lack of pants.”

- The 12th Annual No Pants Subway Ride will take place on Sunday, January 13 in New York City and over 50 cities around the world – including Sydney, London, Berlin, Paris, Madrid, Mexico City and many more.
- The event was started by Improv Everywhere in New York in 2002.
- The first No Pants Subway Ride had only 7 participants.
- Recent No Pants Subway Rides have had nearly 4,000 participants in New York, and thousands more around the world. We anticipate around 4,000 participants this year in New York.
- Improv Everywhere is a New York City-based prank collective that causes scenes of chaos and joy in public places. There is no agenda for the event apart from a desire to make others laugh and smile. Improv Everywhere founder Charlie Todd refers to the event as a “celebration of silliness.”
- Participants are of all ages, races, and backgrounds. Men and women are about 50/50.
- Please note that the name of the event is “The No Pants Subway Ride” and not “No Pants Day,” which is an unrelated event that takes place in May.
