    How does your avatar look today ?

    Contemplating the BIG questions -- mortality, the nature of the Divine, what to have for lunch -- in the church at Ciampi

    This won't work for things like pose balls (i.e., things you want to sit on), but I sometimes attach things to my spine (which means that they don't move with the avatar's animations), and then edit them to where I want them to be.

    Lesbians Anyone????

    And Sweden, let us not forget, has more ABBA per capita than anywhere else in the entire world. (Canadians can be sadistic too!)

    Sure, take out your winter woes on me. Sounds completely fair. After all, it's SO WARM AND BRIGHT HERE IN THE MIDDLE OF CANADA IN JANUARY. 😠

    They grow 'em mean in Sweden.

    Nightmares. Again with the nightmares. Is this Neph's new thing, haunting my dreams?

    But the point is that you could be, and everyone here would be very very supportive. Let me see if I can find an in-world group for that.

    What are some of your pet peeves?

    Ok NOW you're getting it. Viola. Nothing "quite simple" about it at all, is there?

    What are some of your pet peeves?

    No, it's not "quite simple" at all. Human communication is never "quite simple": it's packed full of ambiguity, subjectivity, and, as often as not (and more often than not in Maddy's case), with irony .What is honest is acknowledging that one should never take anything one hears as some sort of inviolable truth. And it is, by definition, not a "lie" if one takes pains to ensure that it is not accepted as the unambiguous truth. Anymore than Charles Dickens was one of the greatest liars of all times because the things he wrote were not "true." Maddy is not "lying to them": exactly the contrary, she is making them more aware of the nuance and complexity of language and connection. And here's an interesting instance of misleading language. You did not "just" ask a question: you implicitly made a rather snide and unnecessary moral judgement about Maddy's veracity -- and a highly questionable one, at that.

    Just Ignore and let this one die

    Well, duh. How else can you tell what sort of swathe you'll cut across the dance floor in the new duds?

    What are some of your pet peeves?

    I'm curious as to why you should think that warning others to take what one says with a grain of salt is "leading them astray." It seems to me that that is merely being honest with them -- far more so, in fact, than someone who represents what they say as God's Own Truth.

    At work in the vineyards of the Lord at Ciampi. maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Bhima/53/150/38

    Indeed. Or there's the other, even handier response: "That's none of your ******* business."

    Private Investigations on the Grid?

    It would certainly be safer for you to keep this to roleplay. I have a larger concern, though. From an ethics standpoint, though, how does this differ from actually stalking someone, on the mere say-so of your client that they deserve the invasion of their privacy that this inevitably entails? Taken to its logical conclusion, outside of roleplay (in which everyone has, presumably, consented to your actions), this kind of "work" seems to me to be at least as bad, if not worse, than the vigilantism we've seen in the past from self-appointed arbiters of behaviour.

    I have a (male) friend who can be depended upon to inform me when he can spot a bit of "side-boob" (or more). He's fortunate that I otherwise value his friendship. And that I can't actually lob heavy objects at his head.
