Date While You Wait

Okay, where was this guy when I was constantly stuck waiting a hundred years for the D train every day for the past 4 years?!

Thomas C. Knox, with a table, some flowers, and Connect Four, just made my day.

He noticed that people don't really talk on the subway platform, to the point where people genuinely try to avoid standing too close to each other (New Yorkers, you know its true) and he just didn't get that.

So, he started the Date While You Wait project, getting people to have fun, be social, and talk to each other a little more.

It's so fun to watch and I would TOTALLY sit down if I saw him!

Who else thinks this is awesome?!
