    It sounds like your part of town had its own identity. Why? Weren't you all living in the same city?

    What are our other options as to what he might have meant? The "hyphenated-Americans" you criticized don't say that they aren't American either. James Bond is an interesting concept overall, as he's morphing from a specific character as he was originally written to a sort of idea or transferrable role. Because if James Bond is the character originally created by Ian Fleming, it's clear that he should be a Scottish-Swiss Caucasian. It's also clear that, in a current modern-day movie, he should be well over 90 years old.

    French Canadians... Have you considered the possibility that he points that out because there may be other Englishmen who don't consider him an "Englishman" at all?

    What part of America are you from? Brazil? Canada?

    You're assuming that literal skin color is the trait that's being used to establish group membership. In the United States, there are things like a television network called CMT ("Country Music Television") and a dating service that says in its name that it's for "Farmers Only." The people that those companies are catering to as a group generally have a quite a bit in common - you can make assumptions about where their ancestors for a few generations back grew up, the type of music they listen to, the things they like to eat, what religion they follow and many other general cultural traits. The interesting thing is that not all of those people live in the "country" or work on a farm, and not all of the people who do live in the country and work on a farm would be considered members of that group, either by the members of the group or by the people themselves. The reason for that is the words "country" and "farmer" in the title are used as a sort of shorthand to describe those shared cultural traits instead of the literal meaning of the words.

    Describe to us a time when you had difficulty finding other Caucasian European males in Second Life. Now, if you were in, say, Japan and feeling a bit lonely - might you seek out others who have similar background and experiences to you? There's a difference between seeking those who are like you and avoiding those who are different from you.

    On your keyboard, apparently.
  9. BilliJo was responding to the OP's talking about selling "children / baby products." In Second Life that would probably refer to things like Zooby Baby, Toddleedoo and, at the high end of the age range, Tweenster products, all of which look younger than the minimum age anyone is allowed to be in Second Life, so it's impossible for those products to be made by or sold to anyone who actually is the age those products represent. Avatars that represent teenagers of the minimum age of a user of Second Life generally use products that can also be used by avatars representing adults.

    Why beginners don't learn the basics first?

    Where are you sourcing the people who'd be interested in it from?

    The Latest on Last Names

    Isn't the whole thread about how "difficult" it is to come up with one unique name?

    The Latest on Last Names

    Then a new user would need to come up with two different names that are unique in Second Life before they could do anything.

    Fixing the "Wear" Mechanic.

    Actually you have been able to wear dozens of system jackets at a time for at least a couple of years. It used to be 5 per clothing item type but it was changed so that all the system items you're wearing are in the same pool. The change happened after system clothing was already on the way out so people didn't notice it; it was mostly used for additional alphas and tattoos.

    Guess what? They'll be the same layers we've been using since 2003.

    Fixing the "Wear" Mechanic.

    Needing to add something to add it? Yeah, super-confusing. "Wear" is still useful for things that use a comparatively standard attachment point, like hair. It would have been a Good Thing if clothing manufacturers had worked out a standardized use of attachment points for rigged mesh, like pants always being attached to "Right Hip," for instance, but that bird has flown. However, you can still do that yourself if you're willing to commit to it.
