It used to be that it you wanted to meet people from around the world you had to get off your backside, get a passport and travel. Nowadays? What the heck, just put on some weird clothes or take them off, got onto Chat Roulette and see what worldwide weirdoes you can meet.
The idea for this site came from a Russian but right now Chat Roulette around the world has more US and German users than from any other country. However, you can find weird and wonderful people from just about anywhere on the planet and beyond.
Not only can Chat Roulette transport you around the world; it seems that it can also transport you back in time. Here we can see incredible images of someone from Nazi run Germany in the 1940s connecting to the site through his time machine. The other guy looks just a little bit surprised.
The French are reported to be big users of Chat Roulette. In fact, you have a 15% chance of being connected to someone from France, which is second only to your chances of getting someone from the US (close to 50% chance).
It isn’t clear what your chances are of getting hooked up with someone from a galaxy far, far away, but the chances of two people from there meeting either each must be pretty slim.
Obama Bin Laden seemed to use Chat Roulette a lot, going by the number of screenshots of him which are around. However, sometimes he bumped in exactly the wrong person at the wrong time.
Even aliens want to make new friends with Chat Roulette around the world at times. Actually, I have a sneaking suspicion that this might be, gasp, a homo sapien dressed in an alien outfit. The other user doesn’t seem so convinced of this, though.
How you would react if your country was threatened on Chat Roulette by Godzilla. It is probably a prank but how could you be sure? It might be best to do what he says just in case.
I have no idea what country these people are from but the girl seems to be from somewhere where there is a tradition of putting footwear on your head in order to show that you really want something. If future historians try to work out what early 21st century people were like using only Chat Roulette screenshots they are going to be left with a pretty weird picture of the world.
The latest figures suggest that a third of the site’s million and a half users are from the US. However, the number of people connecting from Lapland isn’t known. He is really Santa connecting from there, isn’t he? It is so hard whether that beard is fake or not.
I have no idea where this guy is from or why the other one is so upset. That’s the beauty of this site; you just don’t know where in the world you are going to end up.
