Since I am now addicted to Twitter, almost as much as Facebook, I am privy to a variety of information from potentially unlimited sources. Consequently, it was through Veronica Belmont that I was introduced to Omegle.
“Omegle is brand-new service for meeting new friends. When you use Omegle, we pick another user at random and let you have a one-on-one chat with each other. Chats are completely anonymous, although there is nothing to stop you from revealing personal details if you would like” (Omegle, 2009)
Naturally, being the Internet junkie that I am, I tried out the service the moment I had Internet access. Honestly, it feels like the good old days when instant messaging was just kicking off and people were experimenting with the web and IRC chat rooms. Remember that? Ultimately, Omegle is a very cool utility, but one that will no doubt be used for seedy and lewd internet chats – you all know what I am talking about here, and you know, that when I say I know that everyone has done it at least once, that I speak the truth.
Subsequently, below is one of the more amusing transcripts of my time with Omegle, one I knew would eventually take place, and thus had to share, since we know that the web is often littered with deviant miscreants (present company excluded, of course *smirk*):

Looking for someone you can chat with. Hang on.
You’re now chatting with a random stranger. Say hi!
Stranger: how is it hanging?
You: Where it should 😉
Stranger: im a little to the left
You: Oh alright, a kink is different. You may be regarded as somewhat unique
Stranger: i have been told this a couple times….
Stranger: once by your mother
Stranger: she didnt seem to mind thou
You: I am glad she was able to provide some comfort to your disability
Stranger: she didnt move alot thou why is that?
You: Isn’t it obvious? She could barely feel a thing
You: People do not move when they are not excited.
Stranger: hmm maybee i should have shown my boobs more….
You: Perhaps that could have worked.
You: Everybody loves a little nipple now and again
Stranger: only a little?
You: Yes, less nipple = more boob
Stranger: ahh sounds like fun
You: Not as much fun as Poke-her though
You: Guash man, get it right.
Stranger: so this omegle thing 4chan is havinging its way huh?
You: It does appear that way, does it not? It certainly has had its way with me… I feel degraded…
Stranger: did it touch you in a bad spot?
You: Not as bad as I thought it would be… got used to it after a while.
Stranger: you know we are getting a kick out of it right?
You: I am black and blue all over now… so I would have to agree.
Stranger: so i take it we lost the game……
You: Just by an inch… maybe two
Your conversational partner has disconnected.
Contrary to the above
waste of time ‘chat’, I did manage to have a rather interesting conversation with a very charming and well educated girl from Alaska, who is currently in her first year of studying ‘International Studies’. No name or contact details though, which is somewhat frustrating, but a pleasant experience none the less.
So if you have the time and you really have nothing better to do, then why not head over to www.omegle.com and have a random time wasting chat with some random stranger. Why not, other than time, what have you got to lose?
Until the next time Milieu Pals!
