Chat Roulette is nasty. Cat Roulette specifically states on the home page to “keep it safe for kids” but visitors do not do this and the creators of the site do not care. When I finally found a link to email them, their reply was nasty (see below)
CAT ROULETTE REPLY: What’s not safe for kids? The words “t@ts” and “pen@s”?
the lower pic looks like he just saw his first catse
That is the greatest picture combo ever. Top kitty looks so pervy and bottom kitty seems to just have witnessed the most shocking act imaginable.
See, now it’s becoming surreal.
Now the humans are gone, and the cats have taken over.
Soon the cats will be gone as well, leaving the camera showing the empty space where once there was content. Only to be flipped away and replaced by the next empty camera by an automated script, every three seconds.
And years from now, chatroulette will still drone on, empty cameras, and no audience.
And the cats will remember what they briefly had today.
And they will be the real and only winners.
Won’t someone think of the kittens?
My cats are far less literate. When I catch them typing something, it is usually “dghksujkkkijjsggjhdbbnxckksl;lllsjjjcllsl;a;xkkcflco,,xcm” I have always wondered if other cats have the decryption key.
As blue balaclava points out, in French it is still Chat Roulette.
Thats so full of intertube in-jokes, the resulting recursiveness can probably warp time and space!
C’est roulette pour les chats!
Ah oui, c’est bien :)
detecting large amounts of win in this post XD
