What's Funny to Me

What do I find funny. well you know from my first blog the thong. I also find how the seamstresses in SL can't seem to seam the final flap of a prim skirt. What happens? Is it an issue of sweatshop labor? Oh and the straps on so many blouses look like a doper trying to draw a straight line.


Ok, other wonderful oddities of SL. What's the story with Xcite? If you go there it is one of the most trafficked areas in SecondLife. At anytime there are the oddest group of horny men, women and furry's on this world. I once saw a dragon and a tiny, together, at Xcite. I wondered, not for long, who was doing what to whom and how did that work?

Want to have a pleasant afternoon laughing to yourself? Try reading profiles of the various Lindens. These are our gods? You want to know which ones are very funny, come see my show, I've weeded out the bland from the bizarre and you'll have a new insight into the police force of SecondLife.

Oh, there is much to laugh about from slaves complaining to their masters or mistresses. And then the noobies with giant penises (shouldn't this be peni?) Architecture and the insane no zoning idea of the mainland. Oh and islands that are cut up into tiny little pieces with no terraforming and the lots sitting on little canals of absurd boringness.

I even think lag is funny and voice. People complaining about these things vehemently in SL and then in FL having no complaint on their cell saying, "Can you hear me?" I imagine it takes a period of time to adjust into acquiescences with any new technology.

But as funny as Second Life is, it's the soul on the other side of the keyboard that connect many of us to lives more fulfilled. For so many Second Life has given legs those without them. Voice to those who should be heard. Intelligence found where outside SecondLife may have been overlooked.

There is beauty, love, companionship, friendship and all the lasting emotions that make life itself so worthwhile. I just seem to have fun poking at the holes with my finger as if I can stop the sea of ridiculousness from flooding our minds. Oh, and of course, because I love to hear you all laugh.

Lauren, responding to an older post on your blog but you speak the brutal and honest truth. For many of us second life is "second chance". And what we learn on SL we take to our RL's. But that's only for the few who understand what this place is about...
