Stupid Human Tricks

A new axiom for the digital age is: online chatting can be dangerous. I’m not talking about the obvious dangers (i.e. predators, pedophiles, etc.); no, internet communication can lead to…wait for it…marriage. Even worse, virtual marriage; as in: sight unseen.
JAKARTA, Indonesia - Rita Sri Mutiara Dewi's fiance could not get time off from his job in the United States. But that didn't stop the couple — who have never met in person — from tying the knot on Thursday.

And a Muslim cleric who witnessed the ceremony between the Indonesian lovers declared it legal, she said, even though they were on opposite ends of the earth.

What’s more: ”Dewi said Friday she plans to travel to the United States next month to meet her new husband.”

Who knows, perhaps those to two can make it work, but the odds are against him…er, I mean…them. Then again, I hear that loneliness is tough, but I wouldn’t know.
