Places that are social equalizers

I thought about this today, as we stood for 2 1/2 hours to get H1N1 immunizations.

I came up w/

-public transport
-the library
-DMV line

Morgue. Oh, and some online video games (to a certain degree; how much you spend on your computer components still gives you an edge, as well as being able to type coherently.) Richer/higher class people will not use a library or public transport - well, maybe some of the more eccentric upper class people will. But definitely not the social climbers. I wonder how many people with money have paid for private access to the heenie shot. There are rumours circulating of people/companies having private clinics, as well as the reported hockey teams up here.

I'll take that as a compliment, and so, therefore, not true.

Nah.. prisons definitely have social divisions. It's a matter of survival.

Most rich people don't touch Greyhound buses. And I have not taken a Greyhound bus in my life, and I'm never planning to.

Not a social equalizer. If one is rich enough, there's charter and/or private jet, no need for security gates.

Not in California if you are Paris Hilton. You get special treatment and your family has special visitation without having to wait in a 2-hour line.

Eh, I was thinking more along the lines of people with unpaid parking tickets being incarcerated along with muggers, etc. It was kind of a weak example.
