  1. On this day, June 7th 1767, Daniel Boone sights present-day Kentucky....
  2. Xer, I'm thinking that when I see male avatars whose Package is set to "100" and whose cranium is about half-size related to their over-blown digital muscles; those pants would look perfect on them :-) At least they'd be wearing pants. I get really tired of guys "flagpole-ing" at events......
  3. I kinda think CNN/Fox/Brietbart/MSNBC fall under the mantra; "Different (talking) head - same snake" When news becomes entertainment or agenda-driven and there is a financial incentive to maintain turmoil, it becomes more about "telling a story" than "reporting events".
  4. One this date June 6th 1944, the Allies Land in Normandy....thus since that is WAY to serious and significant event to poke my usual .gif fun at....... June 6th, 1977 - US Secretary of State Cyrus Vance CONFIRMS President Jimmy Carters interest in Human Rights That's a lot of Rights........
  5. On June 3 1965 Astronaut Edward White becomes the first American to walk in space when he exits the Gemini 4 space capsule.
  6. My "today" look started off working at the club, but ended much nicer - spending "us-time" with my longtime Partner. I'm really loving SL and a particular lady :-)
  7. (a)..Which God is that? We have numerous ones being worshipped and more popping up all the time :-) (b)..So far as nudity automatically equalling sex.....I grew up in a military family and was an athlete until after high-school, when I JOINED the military. Organized athletics and the military (where you change, bathe, etc in a group) are kind of the opposite of "body-modest" and I never saw anyone "getting it on" in the locker room *never* had to neuter anyone for making unwanted advances. The United States and Canada are very large geographic areas however, so experiences may vary.
  8. Today in history......on June 1st, CNN launched and the 24-hour news-cycle and News-as-Entertainment was born!
  9. "Linden Lab has today announced that the previous welcome message (see below) has not been helpful with New Resident retention, and will be discontinued;"
  10. Today in 1900 - U.S. troops arrive in Peking to help put down the Boxer Rebellion.
  11. Personally, I think SL is at its best when people use the opportunity to experience facets of life that they might not in RL. I have a male avatar I keep to use while Building and on those rare occasions he has to interact with others; it's "different" and that's educational. Having spent a lot of time in role play sims, I once had occasion to play an African-origin Non-player-character to help with a sim story-arc, and she was Definitely treated differently, and that was also educational. I did an Asian character once for the same reason and got similar results. There are peopl
  12. If you click to the "Worn items" tab in your inventory, it will probably be labeled "object" or something snarky if it somehow attached itself to you. Bree's suggestion will probably get it though!
  13. Hello Peoples! I'm babysitting for a friend for a couple of hours on this lovely Sunday! Either that, or I have a 3' tall RL stalker......... ME babysitting should be good for either humor or a lawsuit........can you sue small children?
  14. I wonder if SL wasn't more fun before we all go SO serious about it? I'm with Ivanova on the Skydiving - I loved it here and I'm not remembering why I stopped. I see myself landing on someone's house tonight!
  15. When you run into a Stranger who seems to know more about you than they should, and you wonder whose Alt they are.
  16. I'm a homeowner, but MOST of what I spend is on getting outfits ready for events at clubs that I either visit or work at. In RL, you can write off clothing that you buy for work as an Expense on your taxes - not so in SL...... When you Host or DJ (or Dance for that matter) you wind up having to keep your avatar updated and your wardrobe in a constant state of flux. If you host or DJ at fetish clubs, that can be VERY interesting :-) Disclosure; that's no a sacrifice for me. I was blessed with a broad kinky streak and would probably buy most of that anyway.....
  17. Sadly, we'e lost iOS access to SL from iPhones :-( I work a wonky 3rd-shift myself and it was wonderful to at least be able to log on during lunch and say hello to my Partner. I'll say this as a credit to all of *you*; I enjoy talking to you on the Forum just about as much (if not more at times) than in SL.
  18. "Real love" is whatever is meaningful to those involved. I love my Partner, but she's a LONG way from me - so we talk in SL every night and after a decade, the affection is sort of there to stay. I know a polyamorous family that seems to genuinely love one another...all three of them. SL is home to many facets of "reality" that are unfettered by traditional "Real Life" constraints; how can love be any less-mundane here?
  19. Aislin, I SO feel your pain! A few years back a stalker ran me completely off my 2005 Original Avatar. LL told me (on my Original) repeatedly that changing the Presence system would cause all kind of issues, inconvenience sellers, do bad things to Vendor systems, cause Dogs and Cats to have "relations" and generally create issues. So I gave up all that Inventory. Not a good solution. Hopefully things or regimes change and solve this.
