Uber and Airbnb

Airbnb and Uber are two services I can scarcely believe are even legal. I don't understand the popularity of either. Uber: Get into a car with a random stranger who doesn't have the training to do the job and didn't even have to pass a background check??? They could be a serial rapist and/or murderer!

Airbnb: Sublet your home to random strangers who don't have to pass background checks and could be burglars or worse, and if they decide they don't want to leave, well, they still have renter's rights, so you have to give them 30 days or more notice before evicting them.

Honestly, I think people who use Uber are suicidal, and people who list their homes on Airbnb are either suicidal or batshit crazy or just incredibly stupid and/or naive. And the fact that these services are actually legal boggles my mind. Uber I can almost understand, but I genuinely believe Airbnb needs to be outlawed.
