Hey folks! I built Virus Cafe to help you make a friend in 2 minutes! My goal is to help people stuck indoors because of COVID-19 (or police curfews) to make meaningful connections with strangers. https://virus.cafe Here's how it works:
 1. You are matched with a random partner for a video chat 2. You're given a deep question to discuss. You have 2 minutes! 3. The only rule is: no small talk! Small talk is the worst and I'm on a mission to eradicate it. I've expertly crafted over 200 questions designed to stimulate good conversation and skip past the boring introductions. Here are a few samples: - When in your life have you been the happiest? - What would you be willing to die for? - What is the biggest lie you’ve told without getting caught? - What is a belief you had as a child that you no longer have? - What human emotion do you fear the most? - If a family member murdered someone, would you report them to the police? - What absolutely excites you right now? I hope you use Virus Cafe to meet a new friend and make a deep connection today. Feross

this is brilliant idea @feross
@sibis Thank you Sibi ❤️ Lmk if you have ideas for how to improve it
I was curious if you can share this list of 200 question, could be super cool to open source it.
@emmanuel_orozco Yeah, I'll post it to my GitHub later today! https://github.com/feross
@feross will really appreciate if you could point to it ❤️
@feross any updates on it? Thanks!
A very awesome idea when you are in a locked situation, though I would still prefer to meet people in real life conditions :) I was thinking this idea could be utilized for a long time in the cases where people can not move and are stuck to their beds or houses (ex: sick, paralyzed, in hospitals, tech savvy elderly community...)
@liana_avetian Of course. Nothing can compare to real life. But I hope that this is a reasonable substitute for when that's not possible. Also, getting to meet lots of random people from all is sometimes hard to do in real life! So this hopefully helps enable that!
Cool idea. Maybe for the people who like to disconnect a few seconds after the session starts, you could start matching them up together. You know, since they already have that in common.
@mbarkhau Haha, great idea. My plan is to make people who leave immediately have to wait several minutes until they can get a new match
