The natural world has produced all kinds of weird viruses, all kinds of creative ways to transmit disease. But one STD that only affects crickets has a clever method of getting itself from one insect to the other— before it kills its host, it makes the crickets insanely horny so they go out and fuck as many other crickets as possible, spreading the virus.
Perhaps the best part of this app is the story of how it was started:
"I was walking down Oranienburger Strasse – I know it sounds cheesy, but it’s the truth – it was chilly and I saw the poor girls on the streets, and I thought, why isn’t there an app? It’s not efficient to wait outside."-Pia Poppenreite

Not that it’s terribly difficult to pop into one of the million corner stores and tiny groceries in NYC to grab some condoms if you’re hitting the bars for some action, but if you do happen to find yourself in a situation where you desperately need a condom but don’t have one and you’re in the City, a new service will deliver a pack to you within an hour. Because that’s totally not a mood killer when it would take five minutes to swing in somewhere and grab some when you’re “getting more beer” or whatever. But if you do like to have your condoms hand delivered, you’re in luck.
