Do you ever question some of the items that manage to make their way onto the internet and are actually popular such that they can make people rediculous amounts of money?  I know I do from time to time, not sure if this is my socialist being that seems to creep out more and more as I get older or maybe my small town roots needing a "neighbour" to know what you are doing, but I came across one the other day.
 
I was having some supper (diner for you Ontario folks)  with some friends and the concept of on-line dating came up in the conversation. After a little discussion someone mentioned that there were apparently even sites dedicated to Adultery. 
"Really" we said with disbelief.
"Apparently" he said.
 
Anyway as luck would have it, I was watching TV the next day and they have an interview with the guy who started the first and most popular Adultery site on the internet (http://www.ashleymadison.com/).  Does this not strike you as detrimental to society in some way?  No longer do you have people looking to get a date, but an entire site set up around cheating on your spouse.  Hell, you don’t even need to look for people to cheat with or lie to them anymore, just post an advertisement.
 
Maybe I am just too old fashioned for this modern world?
Here were some stats from the article:
  • 1/2 of people will have an extra marital affair in their lifetime.
  • Most of those people will only have 1 extra marital affair.
  • 4/5 marriages will make it through the discoverly of said affiar (not sure for how long though).
