We bring the sketch to you!

Posted in: Life & Culture

I don't know if you've heard of this website, but there's a new invention on the internet, and it's called Omegle! The theory behind it is chat-room-esque in nature, except it's a 1 on 1 conversation, and it's with a complete and total stranger. Most of these conversations consist of

You: Hey
Stranger: ASL
You: 19/M/Cambridge
You: ASL?
Stranger: Lemur
You: wtf, bye

You: I like turtles

You: I want your body.
Stranger: Yeah baby!

Today (more specifically tonight), something really awesome/sketchy/creeptastic happened. A dozen or so of us were sitting in our floor lounge, playing with Omegle on our 60" HDTV and server, when we decided to tell the random stranger that they were talking to a room full of MIT students. As it turns out, they had a friend that was just accepted to MIT EA. I'm not sure how much info I want to give away on the internet about this particular subject, but . . .


Friend or poke me on facebook so we can sketch on you more.

Psssh, Omegle is old. Chatroulette is the source of awkward conversations with internet strangers of the future.

Posted by: Anon on February 5, 2010

After reading the post, I tried omegle for the very first time.
I: hi
Stranger: hi
Stranger: u boy/girl?
Stranger: fm where?
Stranger: Yng/old?
I: ...
Stranger: school/college?
Stranger: I from denmark ... you?
I: I from mars ... you earthling ?!

Haha! This site is hilarious!
I even came across an 88 year old woman from Somalia!

......and she expects me to believe that!!

Wow! How lucky can one get in such a random thing as Omegle?

I have a friend who lives in a town called 'Mars' (literally translates into Mars). Needless to say he's the butt of every joke concerning earthlings, aliens, space travel, NASA, ...etc.

Guy 1: The exam was so difficult you'd think the teacher brought the questions from Mars!
Guy 2: Great, ask *insert my friend's name*, he lives there.

That is actually a pretty awesome result I'd say. Majorly coincidental though

I started using Omegle just after reading this post and you were right. It is a lot of

Stranger: "Hey"

You: "Hey"

Stranger: "asl?"

You: "17 m Trinidad"
*User has disconnected*

Posted by: Brad on February 6, 2010

Stranger: you female?
Me: no

This was my first "conversation" on omegle

Posted by: Utkarsh on February 6, 2010

heey, this site is crazy smile
Does 'asl' mean 'age, sex, location'?

Posted by: Hania on February 6, 2010

You: heey
Stranger: asl?
You: 18 f poland
Stranger: Poland?
Stranger: Is that a country? :3
