Being completely frozen, ejected, knocked unconscious (logged out,) sent flying through the sky or underground, all after a jarring dead-stop at any jurisdiction border.

Oh, griefers exist in RL.

So does plywood food.

And hey...so do region restart warnings.  They're called "earthquakes".  The actual region restarts are called "tsunamis".

Driverless vehicles.

These definitely exist now, though not widespread and not super reliable yet.

 

Security orbs such that you walk onto the wrong piece of land and you get tossed all the way back to your own home.  Though in RL, you could potentially be surrounded by security or police rather quickly, which might be worse.

My first thought was the irresponsible anonymity, but then, we have that with all the other "virtual" ways of interacting, such as Fakebook.

Ban lines

Flying - unless I were the only one who could.  Flying could be seriously abused in RL  Same with teleporting, unless it could also be blocked.

Animesh things that follow you around.  Wow that could get out of hand.

On the other hand, I terribly wish we could click on people and read their profiles, and our notes about them, and see their names in bubbles over their heads (I'm horrible with names).  Just not sure how "clicking" would work ;)

Every damn thing in an area is partially transparent when almost none of it should be.

Second Life Planck time (nanoseconds) and Planck length (micrometers)

I had to think about that one a moment.  Yeah, that would really mess us up, wouldn't it?

Add to that, heavenly bodies with no actual physical existence.

Mirrors which don't. 

There are days I'd very much like a mirror that does not give a true reflection.
