This woman did 38 random acts of kindness on her 38th birthday. How fun! As I read through her list, I thought this world would be a much happier place if everyone did one random act of kindness each day. A new challenge, perhaps. Picking a few of these might be a fun way to spend a hot summer afternoon.

This fantastic contraption, called the ‘Routefinder’, showed 1920s drivers in the UK the roads they were travelling down, gave them the mileage covered and told them to stop when they came at journey’s end. The technology – a curious cross between the space age and the stone age – consisted of a little map scroll inside a watch, to be ‘scrolled’ (hence the word) as the driver moved along on the map. A multitude of scrolls could be fitted in the watch to suit the particular trip the driver fancied taking.
