IF YOU’VE BEEN eyeing up the guy or gal across the train carriage from above your iphone for months, but haven’t had the courage to do anything about it, then we’ve got just the thing for you.

New website luascrush.com features galleries of snaps taken of our very finest specimans on planes, trains, or buses.

The creators say it’s a  fun webpage where everyone can share pictures of the people they’ve been spying on on public transport.

The site is empty so far, but if you want to help the founders in their search to stalk the unsuspecting, click here.

Meanwhile, here are some of TheJournal.ie’s thoughts on the top five worst possible fellow passengers – suggestions welcome.

First up, Samuel L Jackson in the iconic Snakes on a Plane (yes we know it’s not real, and yes we know he was supposed to be the hero) – remind yourself just how bad that was below:

  • Number Three

    All aboard - in third place, the Irish woman who in 2007 admitted performing sex acts on a man on a DART in Dublin... in front of a carriage full of commuters.Source: Photocall Ireland!
  • Number Four

    At number four - crossing the channel has never been so distracting. Cork 96FM DJ Neil Prenderville last year had to apologise after he exposed himself on board a flight from London to Cork. Mr Prenderville, who was seated between two other passangers at the time, blamed a mixture of painkillers and alcohol for the incident.Source: Facebook
  • Number Five

    In fifth place, X Files star Gillian Anderson who drank six glasses of wine on a transatlantic flight in 2006 before pulling the headphones of a male passanger who was watching a movie and telling him he wasn't looking after his child properly before accusing him of taking his wife for granted. 'Please leave me alone' the man replied.Source: law_kevan via flickr
