We bring the sketch to you! by Snively '11

The internet is full of weirdness!

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
*disconnect*

You: I like turtles
*disconnect*

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

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 . . .

HI ALEX/PRISCILLA FROM THAT ONE BIG STATE THAT WAS TALKING TO HER FRIEND ON THE PHONE WHILE HER FRIEND WAS ON OMEGLE!!!

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

Cheers!

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

    You crazy kids and your dang newfangled devices…

    And I see what you did there, Lemur…

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

    @mrmish
    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.

    Example:-
    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.

    I tried a chat…
    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 ?!
    *disconnect* (he/she disconnected)

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

  10. Brad says:

    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*

  11. Utkarsh says:

    Stranger: you female?
    Me: no
    Disconnect

    This was my first “conversation” on omegle

  12. Hania says:

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

  13. Hania says:

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

  14. Caio '14? says:

    Omegle is sooo last decade! But it’s still very, very, very fun. hahah

    BEST JOKE EVER:

    You: knock knock
    Stranger: whos there?
    You: it’s disco
    Stranger: disco who
    You: disconnect.
    You have disconnected.
