This is like telling someone who showed up outside a grocery store that has just closed, and asks directions to another store that is open, to learn how to grow his own vegetables and raise his own livestock. Sure, its a viable plan for the long-term, but he will go hungry for quite a while before seeing the fruit of his labors. I am not much in favor of short-term thinking. That guy deserved to go hungry.

I notice the UK doesn't even make it on to the list. I'm sure that but for immigrants for whom English is not their first language we wouldn't even register 1% I am ashamed to say that the UK only achieved 34%. And that was mainly the Welsh and the Irish.
  3. One swallow doesn't make a summer. Here is an extract of a list of countries with the percentage of the population who speak more than one language. Luxembourg - 99% Holland - 93% Germany - 62% France - 45% USA - 26% And, at the risk of alienating (see what I did there) even more people than I seem to have already today, the figures for the USA includes people with Spanish as their first language. (I only have four languages in my linguistic rucksack, and wish I had more)

Ps: Two of these are what CHild AVs look like, for the clueless. Note how its not just about being short. So . . . where exactly is that location?
  8. It is also possible to prevent specific individuals avatars from following you, while allowing the rest of the world to see your feed - although not post to it. But you have to be Rodvik to have that option, apparently.

If I am castaway with only one I prefer the intelligent, quick witted gal. ETA:repost Four women? That's a bit greedy. Although I suppose then you could play a mixed fourball and still have one left to caddy for you.
  10. Kylie Jaxxon wrote: Mayalily wrote: another person can have a very high IQ but be unknowledgable about something Are we talking about someone specific here? Some people might make an unprovable claim here to have a high IQ, whereas all the written evidence might point to a contrary view which suggested ignorance of a wide range of issues and an inability to express views other than in an incoherent fashion.

Before you accuse me of sexism, please note that I am not just asking this question of men; women are welcome to answer. (But to give you a hint regarding my viewpoint, those with the intelligence of soap dishes are discouraged from offering their opinions) Intelligence and knowledge of something are two separate things. On a deserted Island, I would prefer a woman with knowledge of survival skills, rather than intelligence as intelligence involves logic which would be a longer route towards getting towards survival. So, I would pick a woman who has the knowledge of survival skills. Someone can have a low IQ and still be very knowledgable about something whilst another person can have a very high IQ but be unknowledgable about something. So, I would have to go with the wording knowledgable about what we would need. Using the logical route could waste too much precious time in our survival. I did hope that you would not respond . . .
  13. While I applaud your initiative and your desire to promote it, I do not believe that it is appropriate to advertise an "Adult Sex Hub" or to refer to the "sex sector" in a forum that is classified as General and not only open to 16 year old residents of Second Life, but is open to public view by minors of all ages. Until LL revise the access capabilities for this forum I think you should be more circumspect in describing what is on offer in the Adult parts of SL. I also think it is a grave mistake of Linden Lab to condone the advertising of practices involving sex and violence (BDSM is also mentioned) by specifically posting publicly to promote these.

  15. Isn't Viale Linden in personal charge of all this? Surely he hasn't cocked it up? Has he?
