why do avatars have brains?

Recommended Posts

I didn't know exactly where to post this, but since it wasn't an actual question about MY avatar...

 

why the heck do avatars have brains? I don't know of its a SPECIFIC mesh or what but everytime I load into a sim , chances are in addition to seeing floating clothes, I'm gonna see a floating brain.  I just can't fathom why the care was put into putting a brain in when you're not even supposed to see it ,and what the point of it is?

Because it differentiates a particular brand of mesh head, and is near-zero work due to nice mesh purchasable on the web.

But, Desiree...even us classic avatars have brains!

I always thought it was in case of a Zombie Attack.  We could all just throw our brains at them and escape while they were busy snacking.

I think you're referring to the classic avatar hair that's usually tucked inside the scull and alpha'd-out.  If its not alpha'd, it does look a little like a brain, I admit.

Ewwww.  Now I'm wondering how I manage to think with a head full of hair.  On the inside, I mean.

On the bright side, if I throw it to the zombies, they'll get hairballs.

It so when you enter a safe hub and instantly receive at minimum 10 different IM's that all start with "hey" you can blow your brains out with realistic detail.

Its the little spot on the upper right of the head texture that needs to be alpha'd out on the system skin to mask the system hair.

It is done like this:

Its a trademark of one particular head maker.

What I never understood though is, 1) Why are they so small? and 2) Why are they red? Brains are supposed to be grey.

I don't know why it's small but it's probably red because you just ripped off the skull to see it.

We need full organ avatars. LL has been cheating us. Organs now!

Yes, especially those missing RL organs.  Lord knows I could use a new liver.

A couple of days ago there was a glitch and a few avis were walking around with no head and the brain and teeth hanging out the front.

I don't have a brain. I checked.

Funny how I can have a brain in SL but not in real life

Oh everyone has a brain in RL, too! But just having a brain doesn't say much. There once was a chicken, that survived its own (botched) decapitation, because part of its brain (at least the brainstem) was still intact. It could breath, digest food and keep other vital functions running.

I used to have a full set of internal organs. It was just fun too see how many people cammed through me.

Then I decided I'd rather spend that complexity on things everyone will see.

I hid mine and replaced it with a banana wearing a condom. 

Is it an organic banana?
