The satire group The Chaser arguably do things like this. Clive the slightly too-loud commuter isn't so much a social experiment as high-octane cringe humour.

Laughed with a complete stranger.

I noticed this old lady laughing her behind off about who-knows-what at a park bench... so I decided to join her.

She stopped laughing for a brief moment and watched me laugh beside her like a lunatic.

Then I stopped as well. :shock:

...Then we both laughed like fucking hyenas. :lol:

Her name was Lou Ann and she was apparently laughing about a memory she had regarding a class mate being bitten by a duck after having attempted to feed it.

Speaking only broken english, bad polish and better german for a week, and pretending to be foreign in all sorts of ways during that week. I stopped when I realised more people were being nice to me than threatening to beat me up, and this made me feel ashamed of my behaviour.

Sometimes I wear pigtails just to see how long it takes before someone calls them 'blow-job handles'. Once it was literally the first thing someone said to me after putting them in (I miss my awesome diggsmates...). I still haven't had the courage to do it to work yet. I'm sure all the guys would be thinking it but I wonder if they would say it.
Without me the world would be doomed.
