    Parents Prefer A Trekkie To A Date Met Online
    Parents would rather see a daughter date a stranger met at a biker bar or a Star Trek convention than someone met over the Internet.

    That's one of several surprising findings from a poll released Tuesday that reveals starkly different expectations of online privacy among 18- to 24-year-olds and their tech-savvy parents.

    Of the 1,200 adults interviewed between Jan. 24 and Jan. 26, 31.9% rated a mate met online as the worst outcome for a daughter, followed closely by someone met in a bar (22.3%) and then a Trekkie (16.1%).

    >>someone met in a biker bar

    The folks I meet in biker bars these days are generally dentists and I'm not kidding.

    Cold Springs comes to mind. [Todd C?]

    What do parents think of their daughter having a date at a Biker Bar with a Trekkie she met on the Internet?
    -Don't criticize anyone til you've walked a mile in their shoes. Then when you do criticize them, you'll be a mile away and have their shoes.

    Maybe they couldn't find a respectable young trekkie.
