WEBSITE OF THE DAY - Acts of Kindness

The London Underground is known for many things: crappy service, decrepit trains, stale air, anti socialism, litter, moronic behaviour and random acts of violence. There's not much doubt that, given an alternative, the millions of people who use the "service" on a daily basis would much rather be doing something else.

But then, just when you think you should give up on the human race and go and get a job in a nice small town, far away from the horrors of the Victoria Line, something comes along that changes your mind.

At art.tfl.gov.uk/actsofkindness the artist Michael Landy is collecting something that your average Tube commuter might be tempted to scoff at - acts of kindness.

It would seem that no matter how cramped the conditions, how bleak the outlook, how outright shitty the experience of travelling underground in London is, the human spirit prevails.

Every day, somebody, somewhere does something nice, for no other reason than it's a nice thing to do.

If you're having a bad day, a quick flick through these tales of the better side of life will make a nice change from the tales of doom, gloom and general apathy you will find elsewhere most of the time.

Gives you hope, doesn't it?
