The "Every Guy's Fantasy" one satisfyingly amusing.

I like the "If you turn your head, I win" link. It was a nice touch how he had the index cards with the smiley faces and thumbs up on them. Pretty interesting how you can narrow down how people will respond.

Good stuff and some very funny people. But then most all CR sessions are filled with a couple of nuts.

Trajectory of the Internet meme, c. 2010:

1) Somebody makes something really cool on the Internet
2) Thing becomes popular enough to be referenced by famous celebrity
3) Subsequent incarnations get less and less amusing

See also: Autotune the News (1, 2, 3), Numa Numa (1, 2, 3), etc. etc.

I'm not trying to be mean, but I'm really getting tired of creativity that's this blatently derivative.

Strangely entertaining. Maybe I'll stop showing my cock to everyone, and try something different!

You'll forgive me for never having had the wherewithal to answer this question for myself, but what happens on ChatRoulette when two cocks meet?

Ben Folds. Not to be confused with this guy.

CU-SeeMe wept.

CU-SeeMe...thanks, I was trying to remember what that was called...back then only schools had high-speed connections that were adequate for video, so a majority of the action was dorm pranksters. I remember the titty quotient as being very high.

I don't care about this whole chatroulette thing, but anything that enables Ben Folds to improvise in front of a crowd about something that's obviously improvised is a great thing.

Oh, and one of Ben Folds's improvs is with someone doing the "if you turn your head I win."

I took a few spins on the ChatRoulette to see what everyone was talking about (having regaled myself in a stylish hat and sunglasses as a minimal nod to anonymity and I stayed fully clothed, thank you very much) and while I can't claim therefore to have carried out the exact experiment I can say that it was very much my impression that in general the non-trivial number of dick guys trolling around had zero interest in the attention of another guy - as soon as my bearded visage appeared they pretty much went straight for the "next" button and cast me back on the digital waters. So, ladies, if you want to watch some guy touch his dick, the field appears to be wide open.

It is a very weird phenomenon, beyond the performers (of whom I met none - there are a ton of dull observers, of which I suppose I was one, punching around at any given time). Most people are doing nothing, apparently just looking for entertainment, and finding each other and (based on the general reactions I found) not finding much to recommend the experience.

My experiment ended with what very much appeared to be an underage young man who called me a "sexy beast" and gave a convincing impression of being about five seconds away from showing me his junk, from which situation I exited with great alacrity, visions of Chris Hansen dancing in my head. Whether I was about to be pranked or had fled a genuine encounter with a curious and excited young man I'll never know. All I know for sure is that I am in every respect too old for that particular wheel of fortune.

I almost wish I didn't love these things as much as I do.

In chatroulette, cock/no cock is the equivalent of red/black. So, get a bunch of people to gather around a computer, after throwing $10 each into the "house" kitty, and start playing chatroulette properly. 2:1 payout on cock/cock and no cock/no cock matches. Girl genitals are 00 with a 20:1 payout. When you hit "if you turn your head I win", the game's over.

It might be interesting if they allowed people to designate themselves as performers or watchers, and let multiple watchers link with single perfomers. Might just be cocks, though

I actually had a really nice conversation with a Russian girl on CR the other day, but since have been unable to duplicate my success.

The people in masks are often the best conversationalists, in my experience. Mask type does not seem to matter.

One time my sweetie was in a rest stop bathroom (and told me about it later) and there was this drama unfolding in one of the other stalls.

"Don't flush Momma! It SCARES me!"

::flush::

This is how I feel about even the idea of ChatRoulette.

The Lady Gaga one makes me uncomfortable. It just seems like the "joke" is that men who wear womens' clothing are tragic/scary/pathetic/grotesque/monsters and we should laugh at them.
posted by prefpara at 6:36 PM on March 29, 2010


@prefpara: Actually, I think the ChatRoulette reactions on that one are about 75% utter delight, 20% dumbfounded, and only 5% scared/horrified. If you read the comments on his YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter, it's clear that he's garnered a huge number of fans from doing that.
