An online dating site that matches people based on data collected by the NSA
There are a lot of lonely people in the U.S. Regular dating sites are
full of liars and fake profiles. OKVesuvius would eliminate this
because all your information would come from what the NSA
collected about you. With help from algorithms on their quantum
computer (which is code named Vesuvius)
it could bring people
together who never thought they had so much in common. The
service could get so good that the government could charge a
monthly fee for it, generating badly needed revenue.
