Good Samaritan Flies The Globe Completing Tasks Requested on Reddit

I think this guy wins the "what I did with my summer vacation" contest. A 22-year-old Reddit user named Daniel spent his summer traveling and helping out redditors all over the world simply by getting stuff done. He reached out to the social news site's community with a post saying, "Need help getting something done? I will attempt to complete the highest voted tasks to the best of my ability."

Luckily for Daniel, and for those who took him up on his offer, one of his family members works for an airline, so he was able to fly standby whenever there was an open seat on a flight. His travels took him across the U.S. and Canada, through Thailand, South Korea, and Australia. The chores he helped folks tackle ranged from the mundane (washing a redditor's car, helping a guy with a bad knee move out of his apartment) to the thrilling. He taught English in Thailand, rode an elephant, and came close to a giant spider in Australia.

Next summer, he's taking it a step further. He's planning to talk to the airline about doing a more official version of his trip and documenting the whole thing on video, car washing and all.
