Enjoy Your New Era Of Internet-Enabled Intimacy While It Lasts, Because The Psychos Are Going To Show Up Pretty Soon

"We are hopping into strangers’ cars (Lyft, Sidecar, Uber), welcoming them into our spare rooms (Airbnb), dropping our dogs off at their houses (DogVacay, Rover), and eating food in their dining rooms (Feastly). We are letting them rent our cars (RelayRides, Getaround), our boats (Boatbound), our houses (HomeAway), and our power tools (Zilok). We are entrusting complete strangers with our most valuable possessions, our personal experiences—and our very lives. In the process, we are entering a new era of Internet-enabled intimacy."

I know of people who liked to offer rides to eighth graders, and they ended up as Trustys in the penitentiary.

Re. the alt-text : Wait, are you implying that circle jerks aren't intimate? Apparently, I've been living a lie.

Alternate take : Apparently, I have the worst therapist.

They touched on this on today's Who Charted… truly we are in a new age of murder venues.
