Answers to some frequently asked questions about 'virtual world' Second Life

The left-hand side is from the official Second Life site. The right-hand side is not.


   Second Life is a 3-D virtual world entirely built and owned by its
   residents. Since opening to the public in 2003, it has grown
   explosively and today is inhabited by a total of 7,904,437 people from
   around the globe.
     * From the moment you enter the World you'll discover a vast digital
       continent, teeming with people, entertainment, experiences and
       opportunity. Once you've explored a bit, perhaps you'll find a
       perfect parcel of land to build your house or business.
     * You'll also be surrounded by the Creations of your fellow
       residents. Because residents retain the rights to their digital
       creations, they can buy, sell and trade with other residents.
     * The Marketplace currently supports millions of US dollars in
       monthly transactions. This commerce is handled with the in-world
       unit-of-trade, the Linden dollar, which can be converted to US
       dollars at several thriving online Linden Dollar exchanges.

   Welcome to Second Life. We look forward to seeing you in-world.

It's not about 'cybersex' with odd 'furry' people who're pretending to be
alien lion creatures or with one of 7,904,433 characters with
impossibly huge tits (whose puppeteers are rotund, balding men in their old
wifebeaters - i.e., not even youthful or the gender you'd prefer).

No, it's not centred on wild sex.  Don't you believe us?  Some,
above all such silly carnality, concentrate their efforts only
on dealing in real estate and other properties, funding empires that
consist entirely of fake land whose costs rival those of real rent
bills - all in the dimensions taken up by a monitor!

No, the best part is the chance to do normal, dull stuff: empty the
mailbox daily, collect CDs, see the virtual doctor, sit inside online,
chat on your computer, sell vampire porn, visit Club Nun Cherries, design
anal dildos or download a dandy willy, and manhandle your 27,003 wild horny
lovers.

Well, all right, sod it.  I lied - it could be a _little_ centred on
sex.
