Sounds like a job I’d be great at: is a website that allows you to rent local Friends from all over the world. You can rent a local Friend to hang out with, go to a movie or restaurant with, or someone to go with you to a party or event. Rent a friend to teach you a new skill or hobby, or to show you around an unfamiliar town.

Of course there are about a zillion other questions still left to be answered.  Like: “Most of the Friends on start at just $10 an hour, but almost all of them are willing to negotiate or even waive their fees depending on the activity you are planning with them.”  Does that include the hookers and blow?
