Ever been on one of those really bad dates where you would just about do anything to get out of there... but you don't want to seem rude. Here is an idea for escaping bad dates.
Supposedly, the creator of mobilealibi.com came up with the idea during his own bad date. The idea being that you get a phone call from someone and then you can make some excuse. You can order this service from the internet or from your phone.
There are some configuration options, like phone numbers and the voice that will be your partner in dating evasion.
I'm not sure where this falls in the karma ratings, but it might make some people feel better about getting away from that bad date.
Remember though, first dates should always be pretty short.
