Find the inmate of your dreams

For those of you looking for a friend, or who just want to help someone through a rough spot in their life, check out lostvault.com. The Web site is sort of a match.com for the lonely and incarcerated, but in this case you know the worst about them upfront. The juxtaposition among the pleas for friendship, the mug shots and the criminal offenses can be everything from sad to banal to unintentionally funny.

For instance, here’s Tim Roberts.

He’s 29, scheduled for release from Lansing in 2012, and is a Gemini which means he’s “energetic, clever, imaginative, witty, and adaptable.” He was convicted of criminal sodomy. “I’m looking for some FEMALE companionship!” he writes.
