If you've checked out the buzzed-about webcam free-for-all known as Chatroulette, you've probably discovered that it's very aptly named: Logging on really is akin to spinning a wheel of fortune. Only instead of red and black, the options are giant penis and animated sock puppet.
Just like in Vegas, where your odds of hitting on the roulette table are 37:1, or 2.6%, your chances of finding an actually desirable chat partner (an attractive topless woman perhaps?) are predictably low. But what exactly are those odds? We forced our intrepid interns to sit through 1,000 different spins on chatroulette.com so we'd have answers (and they'd have nightmares).
