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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

Matthew Wilson@mast I dont know, but I do know it got a cult fallowing here.07/03/2015 - 6:22pm
MastermuneWasn't the Zero Escape series more popular here than in Japan?07/03/2015 - 6:19pm
Matthew Wilson@mast given the game was revealed in the US, I wouldnt be shocked if it was released at the same time.07/03/2015 - 6:15pm
MastermuneI don't trust the big AAA worldwide simultaneous releases though.07/03/2015 - 5:57pm
Mastermune@Infophile I have come to the conclusion that smaller games like zero escape, JRPG's and the like are actually worth preordering sinc they are limited quantities and since they usually release in japan first we know if there are any issues.07/03/2015 - 5:56pm
Infophile@Matthew! Awesome news. I'd preorder on that shout alone if I didn't have a policy against preordering anymore.07/03/2015 - 5:16pm

Matthew Wilson@pnx I am guessing a ddoss since that is what happened to neogaf, but sony needs to do a investment in psn as a whole. steam is still the most reliable and fastest digital platform I use.07/03/2015 - 3:06pm

Matthew Wilsonhttp://www.gamespot.com/videos/the-point-destiny-the-hardcore-gamers-slot-machine/2300-6425852/ this is very good, and well researched.07/03/2015 - 12:41pm
InfophileOther features to become standard: The ability to remap controls however the hell I want. Quicksave at any time (especially for handheld and mobile games). Plus everything Andrew said07/03/2015 - 10:43am
InfophileRegion-freeing becomes tricky for games with a strong online component though, especially when the servers are run by different branches in different regions.07/03/2015 - 10:41am
InfophileI'm in favor of getting rid of region-locking for any purchased games. I can understand an exception for free, ad-supported games, as many ads are only relevant in certain regions, and it's a ridiculous hassle to get ads for all regions.07/03/2015 - 10:40am
