Like automotive theft and opium, fist fights in the street just aren't as popular as they once were. You could blame our litigious culture, or our increasingly sedentary lifestyle, but for whatever reason, fewer Brits are capping off a night of booze and tabs by burying their knuckles in the face of a burly stranger.
So what can we do to remedy this problem? How can our current culture of civility and discourse revert back to one of volatile men, naked as the day they were born, beating each other into a bloody pulp with no regard for the limits of our legal system? Step forward Rumblr.
Rumblr is an app that matches you with a like-minded stranger in your area. Not so you can give them a handjob in the alley behind the bar at kicking out time, but so you can throw hands with them in the alley behind the bar at kicking out time. Or at whatever time, for that matter, because Rumblr is all about organising a fight to suit your needs.
Observe, these explanatory screengrabs uploaded to the app's website.
There you go. Kudos to the app for using the image of the guy in the baseball cap with the flip-phone. If I had to identify the target market of a Tinder-style app for fighting - one that is probably fake - I'd pick that degenerate out of a lineup any day of the week.
No word on when Rumblr launches, but keep an eye on the website for updates.
