Alicia Chenaux Plurked an article on Cracked that was focused on bizarre ways online gaming is affecting the real world, found HERE. I was reading it and getting annoyed, as I always do every time an article about SL pops up, at how the authors do zero research and use incredibly old, and often false, information. Any time someone comments and says "hey, it's not that way at all," they basically just get the "lolz u r a loser get a first life," response. Basically super clever and original ad stuff, don't ya know. For some reason today it really bugged me. I started thinking about it too much I guess. Are we losers? Is this whole thing really, really stupid? Should I just quit? I went and made a yummy dinner for my lovely family, found out about a sister's pregnancy, ate cake, sneaked a quick make out session with the hubby, played with my daughter and snuggled her to sleep, then came back to the computer and thought about it again. I'm not a loser. I have a first life. And it's good. And, you know what? Second Life isn't dumb. Just look at this:
