Startup #1 – Karma Police

Have you done something bad? Lost some major karma points? Here’s your chance to earn them back! Simply hit up the Karma Police website and anonymously confess your sin. Other users can then view your confession and vote on an action that they feel is an appropriate penance for you to perform to restore your karmic balance.

Example: “I spilled my drink on a sofa during a party and instead of cleaning it, I just flipped the cushion over”

Options:
– Make a $50 donation to a local non-profit
– Buy a drink for the person behind you at Starbucks
– Say hello to 5 random people
– Call your mom

Users would vote on the “punishment” they feel best fits the crime. After 1 week, the votes would be tallied and the “sinner” would receive their karmic sentence.

The inspiration for this idea came from a recent visit to Thailand.  I was amazed at what a friendly and open society it was, which is partially based on their religious beliefs in earning karmic points for their next life. Also, seeing the growing momentum of a new genre of anonymous confession sites like postsecret.com. And, of course, Radiohead.

 What do you think?  Know of any sites like this that are already out there?  Got a secret you want to confess?  Post it in the comments!
