Don’t feel like shelling out a couple hundred dollars for a new iPhone 6? Here’s a disgusting and probably dangerous solution.

This one is dedicated to all the olds who insist millennials are risk-averse: spotty youths are now using Twitter to solicit rides from strangers and acquaintances alike.
They do it to get to school, pool parties, and more. That’s right, your kid might be hopping into a car with a stranger in his or her swim trunks right this minute. From WNYC’s apparent Bay Area Teen correspondent Bianca Brooks:

Despite warnings from their higher ups, soldiers are still turning to social media and Internet personal ad websites to solicit sex even though it violates military rules.
