9/11 Memorial Held in Second Life

September 12, 2008 -

A 9/11 remembrance was held in Second Life yesterday on the seventh anniversary of the terrorist attacks on New York City and Washington, D.C.

As reported by The Click Heard Round the World

There were 70-80 other avatars present... Most folks sat on the grass in respectful silence, restricting communication to instant messages.  A couple of avatars in soldier's uniforms stood at attention. Believe it or not, it means a lot for a bunch of avatars to sit in silence.  It just never happens...

 

On the audio stream, starting at 8:45AM EST (when the first tower was hit) and for several hours afterwards, the names of all the victims of 9/11 were read out by various members of the Second Life community... You could hear people's voices breaking in the midst of reading the seemingly endless list of those lost...

Classic case of Narcissistic Personality Disorder if the individual is over the age of 15. Usually acts agressively and lashes out at cultural norms and authority due to a deep seeded sense entitlement and a near infantile lack of empathy. Acting out via anonymous proxies such as newspaper letters to the editor or Internet forums gives greater license for juvenile power and violence fantasies and encourages the senseless egotism. Generally an undesirable personality, likely a loner though some personal relationships with close family or a friend may occur. Probably unable to create additional lasting relationships and may have trouble holding down steady employment. Possibly abused as a child.

Yeah, just as well. Something tells me that otherwise, you'd be spending a lot of time with ice packs telling your action figures "Just wait until next time... I'll get him then... just wait..."

It's probably best you just stay in your mom's basement. It's safer there.

Agree. Very very very agreed.

Re: 9/11 Memorial Held in Second Life

Every 5 minutes? What are you talking about? GP didn't even have a 9/11 article yesterday, on September 11. Get off the the chronic and play some Sonic.

LOL! Nice.

Well, I wouldn't expect too much rationality from someone who pretty much admitted to being a sociopath.

Re: 9/11 Memorial Held in Second Life

Constantly referring to 9/11 for no real reason irks me too like picking at an open wound, but yesterday was the 11th of September and for better or worse, the events of that day had repercussions that are still being felt today. It's hardly a distant memory best forgotten.

Re: 9/11 Memorial Held in Second Life

Gee. I wonder how people responded to other attacks? "Oh gee, the Nazi's are bombing us", "Oh bother, whatever do we do about the British?" "My my, so Pearl Harbor is gone.", and "Woe is I, the Huns are here."

Come talk to me when the human race DOESN'T consider loss of life tragic and horrifying. THEN you have a right to complain.

Re: 9/11 Memorial Held in Second Life

When it's someone we really fuckin' hate or a lot of people we love or hate, we don't.

Re: 9/11 Memorial Held in Second Life

I consider the death of others to equate to nothing more than a slightly quieter and less crowded world.

And the award for the most pathetically obvious attempt at trying to cast yourself as some cool uncaring shmuck goes to ... HalfShdaow.

Re: 9/11 Memorial Held in Second Life

By that reasoning, you're pretty easy to dismiss as well, as I can imagine the globe will continue spinning for a few billion years once you've expired.

Re: 9/11 Memorial Held in Second Life

You sound confused, might I suggest a juice box and a nap?

He may be thinking of Rudy Giuliani perhaps.

And not a single flying phallus in sight? I'm impressed.

Thomas RiordanNo, certainly not. Anything to prevent that kinda crap.09/01/2014 - 8:18am
SleakerAlthough.. I don't think it hurts anyone if kids think the report is true :P09/01/2014 - 3:26am
Sleakerand just for future reference. National Reports is a fake news site, they decided to remove their disclaimers a while back apparently...09/01/2014 - 3:25am
Thomas RiordanDon't feel bad. I posted the same thing last night and deleted it once I realized it wasn't real.08/31/2014 - 11:13pm
E. Zachary KnightAh. The report actually read serious to me. Oh well. At least it didn't happen.08/31/2014 - 7:46pm
ConsterAlthough apparently someone who was in a swatting ring in Texas took a plea for up to 5 years in July.08/31/2014 - 7:14pm
ConsterProbably because it's a satire site.08/31/2014 - 7:13pm
E. Zachary KnightI agree that the kid should be punished, but the charge and sentence seem a bit overboard to me. http://nationalreport.net/15-year-old-swatted-domestic-terrorism/08/31/2014 - 6:56pm

AvalongodAgain I think we're conflating the issue of whether Sarkeesian's claims are beyond critique (no they're not) and whether its ever appropriate to use sexist language, let alone physical threats on a woman to intimidate her (no it isn't)08/29/2014 - 5:04pm
prh99Trolling her or trying to assail her integrity just draws more attention (Streisand effect?). Which is really not what the trolls want, so the only way to win (if there is a win to be had) is not to play/troll.08/29/2014 - 5:02pm
prh99Who cares, just don't watch the damn videos if you don't like her. Personally, I don't care as far as she is concerned as long there are interesting games to be played.08/29/2014 - 4:34pm
Andrew EisenZip - And yet, you can't cite a single, solitary example. (And no one said you hated anyone. Along those lines, no one claimed Sarkeesian was perfect either.)08/29/2014 - 3:51pm
Andrew EisenSaint's Row: Gat Out of Hell was just announced for PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One making it the 150th game For Everything But Wii U! Congratulations Deep Silver!08/29/2014 - 3:49pm
