Bus stop seeks to break monotony of commute

When most people ride the bus, they consider it a successful day if they set a new high score on Candy Crush and avoid the guy who smells like cheese.

But one company, Qualcomm, decided to make a few bus passengers' commutes a little less monotonous.

The company placed a sign with a certain URL at a bus stop with the idea that, when riders got bored, they would enter the address in their phones.

It worked and amazing things happened.

Some received rides in a luxury sports car. Others received a ride in dog sleds. Some got a free circus.

Something tells me this would make a day at the office a bit easier.
