Election Night in Second Life

November 6, 2008 -

While GP was glued to old school CNN for news of this year's presidential voting, Bixyl Shuftan recaps what election night was like in the Second Life metaverse for the Second Life Newspaper:

Princess Ivory had this to say, “Do you all realize that this is a historic election not just for the US, but for SL? 4 years ago SL wasn't as popular. In the past, we would gather with our neighbors and family in the living room and watch the election results on television. Now we sit and watch our avatars sit together, and listen to the BBC broadcast from another window. Incredible..."

Checking the Obama HQ, they had set up some bright glow-balls, bathing the interior of the building in light. And with victory declared, many were dancing away...

Then a couple came in, telling everyone they had just been banned from the Straight Talk Cafe, saying they ran through the place naked...

GP: Only in SL...

"We used to hang out with real people that we knew and saw in real life, and gathered in each other's homes and socialized with them face to face.  We'd watch the news on our TV and talk about the election.  But now we can be totally alone at our house watching our avatars doing what we used to do! "

Fabulous.

Can you make yourself muscular in second life. If you can than the owner of the pitiful scrawny super man needs to bulk him up. It's blasphemy to have him that thin.

That guy is supposed to be Obama? He looks whiter than I am!

Re: Election Night in Second Life

 YES!  Just four years ago there were 10 people in SL.  Now there's 13!  That's almost one new person a year...a new personal best!

Re: Election Night in Second Life

I think I remember telling my Second Life story the other day in how a girl was crying, saying Obama was gonna take her father's money and give it to the poor. The poor deserved what they got and don't need help.

... Only in Second Life.

And how is this better? Having contact of the mind only and not just the mind and body? Welcome to our downfall.

Andrew EisenNintendo announced the Link amiibo is compatible with Hyrule Warriors. No idea how Nintendo expects anyone to give a toss if it don't tell us what it does. Then again, maybe I'm just being curmudgeonly.10/21/2014 - 1:25pm
Neo_DrKefkaSo Gamergate compared me to leftist Saul Alnsky....ME off all the people10/21/2014 - 1:16pm
IanCWell.... quite.10/21/2014 - 1:10pm
Andrew EisenWell of course. Girls don't buy figurines and guys don't buy figurines of girls. And no, the girls that buy figurines and the guys that buy figurines of girls don't count. The money belongs on the table, thank you very much!10/21/2014 - 12:43pm
IanCI have 3 of the Disney Infinity figures even though i don't have the game (Rapunzel from Tangled, and Anna & Elsa from Frozen, purely because its the only way to get figures from those two films)10/21/2014 - 12:23pm
Andrew EisenGlad you said "Pokemon." That's the first time I've seen anyone use that abbreviation.10/21/2014 - 12:14pm
