  1. I have happily managed to avoid seeing ANY.... I'm also evil enough to make someone babbling about "White Walkers" uncomfortable by asking; "Excuse me.......but doesn't that sound mildly racist?"
  2. Well, my plan for the day started out like this..... But it ended up more like this..... Kind of a let-down........
  3. Also, avoid giggling on-air a lot......... a little is ok......but a LOT....... ...sounds like this..
  4. Sometimes you have to be forceful to make the thread stop.......like....pepper-spray the settings or something.....
  5. I'll say this; I enjoy chatting with this group :-) The new forums have been a vast improvement over the old free-for-all, and I appreciate the effort that goes into keeping them that way. Y'all are awesome :-)
  6. The latest forum incarnation has been a great improvement from the old ; "let's run off the new people" days, but some of that has still been cropping up occasionally.
  7. My Partner knows all about me as well Skell - I have more focused time spent chatting with her in SL over the last 11 years than probably any other one person in my LIFE (RL or SL). When I had my little health crisis, she was my security blanket and the *only* person I told about how scared I really was (can't let the children pick up on that after all)... But for everyone else, I offer up general details and not many specifics. My reasons relate to a specific incident where someone accidentally DID twig to my RL information (someone I knew in both RL and SL let it slip) and the flow
  8. I would slightly disagree. I encounter people expressing parts of who they are that - for whatever reasons - they cannot in RL. IMO that is self-expression, not putting on a role like an actor playing a part.
  9. Create some stock sound-bites that you can drop into the que when you're verbally running low on content. I like gag "commercials" a lot :-) I have one for a combination Mortuary/Pub that usually gets a laugh when the "stop in for a Cold One" punchline hits......
  10. Welcome back! Unfortunately, many places -do- place an emphasis on Voice - especially if you DJ, do erotic dance or escort. Unfortunately, SL places less emphasis on Textual Relations now that SL Voice and Skype are easy options. If you still want to dance, my first thought would be to apply at places where no one will care about voice-verification. That would mean places catering to the gender-fluid community. I am not sure if we're allowed to call out places by name on the forum (some consider that advertising), but when I get home from work and into SL I can IM you at least
  11. SL has as many jerks as RL - only here you can mute/de-render them :-) I get bothered at people who keep persistently ignoring my "I don't talk about RL" statements, but over time I've gotten pretty good at giving them the "move along please".... ....I have friends here who are worth having, so dealing with the unrealistic "what, this isn't Facebook/Tindr?" types is just the price I'm willing to pay.
  12. I never let any guy's drooling stop me from dancing with whom I want to :-) They'll just have to contain their jealosy........
  13. I've seen M+M in clubs that are not strictly non-Hetero, but its not common IMO Girls dance with girls (if they're not INTO girls) because it turns guys on (in some cases)..........the male of the species is visually stimulated.
  14. It occurs to me that Me + Fire usually ends badly....... but here I am :-)
  15. I have fond memories of discovering a glitch in one of my big brother's C64 games. He was the big war game and aircraft jock and was really -battling- this game. Its objective was to fly a B1 bomber somewhere and blow up the Bad Guys and he kept getting shot down....a lot..... I discovered that if I set the altitude to 1', I would make it all the way to Moscow and was invulnerable. I still remember him sputtering; "But....it's cheating if you DRIVE to Moscow!" Wish I could get some more of those times :-(
  16. That's actually a bittersweet topic for me. Prior to the Interwebs I had left active duty and was in the reserves while chasing an advanced degree. I was either in school, running, or at my day job - with reserve duty once a month and eating up a couple of weeks every summer...... so no time for things like "social life" or "family". I got absorbed into the Internet Collective -after- going back on extended active duty to make use of my shiny new skill set and have some really sleep-disturbing experiences. When I was finished finding out that humans can be really awful to each other
  17. Some years ago due to a brain injury, my RL body began letting me down. For me and people like me, SL is a chance to be "normal" and not the object of pity or bad humor when my speech sounds drunk, I have a "can't walk well" day or being a gifted seven-finger typist is just not enough. I think it's relative to your situation :-)
  18. Personally, I think with certain individuals it's already here. I have friends here I and really wild about; but I have no urge to know them in RL. When I think about them, I visualize them as I know them here; and I am OK with that. I'm comfortable with seeing people as they prefer to be seen, and it hurts my ability to be their friend not one little bit :-)
  19. I LOVE the Darwin awards........ The Raccoon-Hunt in a sewer-pipe was one of my faves......
  20. The actual eclipse may be over, but if you have a 3rd-shift "day sleeper" in the house, you can still have a little fun with it. a.. Turn off their alarm b.. Set the clocks in the house back several hours c.. Wait for full dark d.. Wake them up screaming; "OMG! The Sun never came back !!!!!!" Then back away......
  21. Just a thought - but a Non-Searchable Person is very likely a Ninja...... ......might be best not to search too hard for a Ninja......
