We've shown you their lonely faces, now it's time to look at the sad Craigslist Missed Connections posts of your average Chatroulette user. One forlorn internet Thing feeds into another forlorn internet Thing, and the world spins into itself.

In case you're not a lonely weirdo like the rest of us: Chatroulette is a new social service thing that connects you to a stranger, with webcam and audio enabled and everything. So you can talk, not talk, eat snowpeas, or even masturbate to your giddy heart's content with a complete stranger. It's weird and fascinating. One problem with the thing is that it's very easy to get disconnected from someone you're really vibing with, thus where Craigslist comes into play. It's a good bet that the solitary mouth-breathers on Chatroulette are also scouring the windswept plains of Craigslist, so it's a wise place to start if you fell in love while e-jerking.
