A Missed Connection Found Online

from the odds-makers? dept

Some people I know are quite obsessed with Craigslist's Missed Connections forums, where people post notes about the people they saw somewhere... but were too chicken to talk to. It always seemed somewhat silly in a "what are the chances?" sort of way. However, the NY Times (great investigative reporters they are) have apparently turned up a "missed connection" that actually connected via the site -- and actually seem to have hit it off.
