Life

We've met a gal online that we really liked. Struck up a conversation. Worked up the nerve to ask her out. Picked the perfect date spot. Taken a nice long shower and gotten ready. Stood outside the bar, nervously waiting. Saw her in person and felt your heart flutter. 

The date goes great and you start to think she might be the one. 

But at the end of the night, she drops the bomb.

“I have to tell you something. I was convicted a couple years back of sleeping with a nine-year-old boy. I'm a registered sex offender.”

Your heart sinks. You can't date this woman. And now you are out $60 bucks for drinks. 

Well, that will never happen again with the new app from NameTag. It uses facial recognition software to scan databases of sex offenders. So screenshot that Tinder prof and plug it in. 

Oh, by the way, that's not even the creepiest aspect of this thing. You can snap a picture of any person you see in public and instantly be shown their whole social media presence. No literally. That's in their description of the goddamn app. 

Using the NameTag smartphone or Google Glass app, simply snap a pic of someone you want to connect with and see their entire public online presence in one place.

The future… fuck it.
