What's the craziest thing you've seen on chatroulette?
I can't think of one right now. There's a movie I didn't even see, Open Your Eyes, but my sister saw it, and she was like, This has to be the craziest thing you've ever seen on chatroulette, and then her face fell and she was like, That's it. I was like, Oh, my God.
JH: What are you most looking forward to in the near future about chatroulette?
BA: I'm most looking forward to, like, a million million million million ways to make money from it.
