Changing appearance

Geisha makeup
Avatar changing her face aspect in real life.
Where is reality, where is fantasy?
It's a secondary question.

The world is governed more by appearances than realities, so that it is fully as necessary to seem to know something as to know it.
Daniel Webster, US diplomat, lawyer, orator, & politician (1782 - 1852)

Some statistics

After having played the class clown, here is some sober work, my first comparative statement!

Second Life with goggles
By country Number of answers 1st link mentioned
Google France 664,000 000 wikipedia
Google England 568,000 000 second life
Google Argentina 581,000 000 second life
Google Cuba 581,000 000 second life
Google Spain in Spanish 581,000 000 second life
Google Spain in Catalan 587,000 000 second life Spain
Google Spain in Galego 584,000 000 second life Spain
Google Spain in Euskara 584,000 000 second life Spain
Google Germany 601,000 000 second life
Google China 63,300 000 secure second life join
Google USA 572,000 000 second life

Ok, ok, it deserves some improvement, I reckon, but I would like to see you.

We can draw some conclusions now

  • French are mostly interested in knowing what Second Life is

  • English and Americans are not so different, they are separated by only 4M answers, maybe the same difference between Blair and Bush, what we call the B2B (it works with Brown too, but it won't with Clinton)

  • Argentina and Cuba have exactly the same result, the Che effect...?

  • Spain in Spanish gives the same first link as England and US, by the way it is the same for Argentina and Cuba with also the same number of answers

  • Spain in Catalan, Galego and Euskara gives as first link, is that the beginning of unification...

  • Chinese are mainly interested in joining Second Life, but safely, perhaps the Tiananmen effect here?

  • There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics.

    Little Pony in Second Life

    In my previous post I promised you more sex, here you have real hard porn!

    My little pony

    Have children leave the room or shut their eyes and hears, because this movie is above anything naughty and dirty you will ever watch, even in Second Life.

    Yes we are always in Second Life, our world, our imagination, images are images, they are not real life, and all that is not real life is second life.

    Youth would be an ideal state if it came a little later in life.
    Herbert Henry Asquith, British politician (1852 - 1928)
