Omegle – Talk to strangers… anonymously?!

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: heya

You: 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

Stranger: pingas?

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

Stranger: FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

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!

Let me tell you a ‘rising’ story…

When we travel abroad, I always seem be susceptible to random erections which, most embarrassingly, occur during the day, in broad daylight and after utilising some mode of transport. Look, do not get me wrong, I love having an erection. I feel it is, somewhat, the epitome of a being a man. It is such a natural thing and it just feels good… no, great *begins to reminisce of the feeling… then quickly calms down*. Okay, I’m going to stop there, since there is no other way for me to carry on describing ‘the feeling’ without sounding homoerotic.

Obviously I know why men are supposed to get erections and how it happens, I am a man after all. However, what some people may not realise, is that we, as men, often do not have total control over our members, with particular reference to obtaining a ‘hard on’. Seriously, erections can occur for no other reason than, for example, holding in your almost bursting bladder, or perhaps, just releasing a pent up yawn and stretching harmlessly (your body that is, not your penis… because we all know where that ultimately leads to).

As I have previously mentioned, these ‘random erections’ usually occur when I travel abroad. As a result, and as Murphy’s law would have it, the golden rod often, if not always, makes itself apparent just as we arrive at our destination and need to disembark from a vehicle. I mean… come on. Consequently, this results in yours truly, performing some rather odd and disorienting movements, making me look like a hyperactive geriatric, in the hopes of camouflaging my noticeable ‘inflammation’. Thus far, I seem to have successfully avoided any awkward confrontations with family or anyone else for that matter. Whew!

I must confess, I did Google ‘random erections’ for this post. Unfortunately I did not find out anything I did not already know, just the standard information about how it is normal and how you need to love yourself… blah blah. It is not like it is a special ability or anything *grin*. However, I did stumble upon this YouTube video (or rather several) which offers a perfect example of how men do not have control over our members, even in a professional setting. Please be aware, the following video clip is NSFW (Not Safe For Work).

 

Perfect example of a random and uncontrollable erection.

There is another video, of  a similar vane, of Jean-Claude Van Damme getting ‘happy’ on live television. Then again, placed in his situation and doing what he was doing… who can blame him?

*UPDATE* As the interverse would have it, my blog post regarding ‘erections’ was right on the money. Apparently they are back, and as ‘hard’ as ever! Here are a few more ‘lengthy’ links:

Until the next time Milieu Pals!

Breaking News: Pokémon Exist!

Hey Milieu Pals,

Have you heard the news? In a recent discovery made by a Japanese journalist,a secret lab was found that has begun genetically engineering animals to resemble the cute critters of the world renowned Pokémon brand. Apparently they wanted to create a Pokémon Zoo to help increase Japan’s dwindling tourist economy. CNN.com had the following to report:

"In a startling discovery, made by the infamous Japanese reporter Ms. Yoshiko Sakurai, the evidence of an advanced experimental gene splicing and cloning facility was found in Saijo within the Chugoku Sanchi district of Hiroshima. The facility was said to be experimenting with animal DNA, through a new genetic process that incorporates the peptide bonding of nucleic acids; and the dismantling of RNA chains through the use of a revolutionary restriction endonuclease called Moniseraze. Through this new process, the Japanese scientists were able to splice genes from different animals to create new biological organisms. Although this is a tremendous breakthrough for modern medicine, it is in direct violation of the Genetics Act of 2001. The organisms created offer striking resemblances to that of the famous Japanese Pocket Monster concept, Pokémon".

I hope you all enjoyed that piece of well written and semi-believable balderdash… LOL ! I’m sure most of you figured out that it was a false news story that I made up. If not… then I hope you have/had a good laugh at it !

So, do any of you Milieu Pals out there like Pokémon? For those who know me quite well, you’ll know that I’m really into collecting Pokémon cards, among other kinds of card collections. I have been a Pokémon fan for… gees… its been so long that I can’t even remember when it started in South Africa . Regardless I really enjoy playing the card game and the suspense of not knowing what cards you will be receiving when you buy a new ‘booster’ pack of cards.

Some of you, who are reading this, are probably thinking the following… "Pokémon, did he say Pokémon… HA HA HA HA"; "That’s for kids man, you’re twenty already"; and so on and so forth. I have only the following to say to those with such a narrow minded perception of individualism: when I started collecting the first series of Pokémon cards I was fortunate enough to obtain 2 Charizard Holographic cards. Both of those cards (in near mint condition) now have a collectors retail value of $160 dollars each, which equates to R1 040 (at time of currency conversion) and that’s only for a single card. My collection is now regarded as an investment, not just a child’s game .

Okay, the point of this entry was to actually discuss something that I found with regards to Pokémon. I can’t remember how I stumbled onto the site; I think it was from clicking on a link in the TeamXbox.com forums. Basically I was redirected to a site, called Worth1000.com, and onto a page for a Photoshop competition revolving around Pokémon. The aim was to create Life Like Pokémon.

I was amazed at what I had seen! Some of the people who submitted entries are really talented. So, I’ve decided to share the photographs with all of you. You may find the photographs of the ‘Real Pokémon’, with their names, in the album entitled: Breaking News: Pokémon Exist! For the website I got the photographs from, please click here.

I should actually be studying now… considering the fact that I have two theory intensive exams for next week Wednesday; Psychology: Organisational Behaviour and Integrated Marketing Communications.

Wish me luck!

*Update* – I found this fan made video on Youtube which has even more pictures of ‘real’ Pokémon.
