Well I looked. This could be one of the dumbest excuses for a website. Love to hear what other think.

I'm on metafilter. Wait you are too? Weird. This must mean something.

Well, this proves that at any given moment in time, all around the world, there are people who are taking pictures of all sorts of different things. And that these pictures have no relationship to each other, in any way, besides the fact that they were taken (ostensibly) at the same time. What we're left with is a website chock full of random images, most of which I personally find neither particularly interesting or noteworthy. I reckon there's some folks out there, though, who'll find this worthwhile, and if so, I suppose it's a good thing.

Personally I think the concept is nice but the implementation, as far as I can tell from the link, leaves much to be desired.

I'm personally surprised three fourths of them weren't having sex with large-breasted underwear models with demure expressions.

I thought this was a neat concept, especially on the ones where there's an obvious overlap. But I think that it needs a bigger sample size and better editing—each one of these should be put together like a collection instead of just a feed.
