Default Second Life

Whats the deal with this Second Life? I watched CSI: NY and its plot line was based on Second Life.

Does anyone play it? The damn thing has its own STOCK market and currency.

Yeah, its real alright. I've seen stories on the news about it. Seems like many people who play it are quite odd people...

you can make $ off of WOW, EQ2, EQ1, DAOC, Star wars Galaxies, and many more MMORPG'* and online games.

People sell there Game $ for real $ and also sell there accounts and sometimes high level weapons and stuff.

There was an article in our local paper this summer about how a local man'* marriage was beginning to fall apart because he'd "married" someone on Second Life. Apparently he was totally neglecting his real life and wife and spending what little money he had on the second life "wife".

It takes the concept of a fantasy life to a whole new (sick, sad, and disturbing) level.
