Checking out some expensive rental property. These virtual houses rent out for 800-1600 virtual dollars a week. Yes, some of them already have tenants. One of whom was home, so I didnt bother her:
These houses arent just walls with roofs, they go into great detail on the inside with all sorts of furniture, decorations, etc. Note the big screen tv on the first floor of this place:
And the couches on both floors, and the aquarium on the second floor:
Note the bedroom and Eat In kitchen in the same house:
Here is the biggest house in the area, complete with a helicopter and pad on the roof (this house also has an indoor swimming pool!):
And a yacht anchored nearby!:
More houses. These places are nicer than my real life place:
Someones expensive speedboat:
An inside look of the living room of the above house:
I took the liberty of taking a dip in the swimming pool with my clothes on, just in case I had to make a quick getaway:
A houses rear patio:
I heard the sound of a horse whinny, and looked around. Sure enough a lone stray horse was there. Cant these rich people afford a stable?
Dont know whose horse it is, but I got on to take my own picture while riding him:
Another shot of the yacht with the moon going down:
A shot of me on the yacht with a sunrise in the distance (I couldnt get inside the yacht because it was locked, with a special security keypad). You can still see the horse I rode on:
Next, my visit to London. A local Knightsbridge pub:
Up the street from the pub is the Underground Club:
Naturally I took a look at the London underground (subway):
A residential London Street. These apartments are up for rent. Up the street is a double decker bus.
Naturally I had to see Big Ben from both the outside and inside (they do not yet have Parliament and the Queen's Palace. They are in the process of building those):
More residential London apartments:
Another shot of Knightsbridge station (with me wearing a free tshirt that the pub was giving out):
A shot of me inside the pub, this time wearing a different t shirt that the pub was also giving out.
I put on my tuxedo and danced away with one of the girls in the pub :-):
And back to America visiting the bar from the tv show Cheers (Yes, as you enter the door, it calls out "NORM!):
Me behind the bar.
Me behind the bar with a glass of Merlot in my hand, and a glass of beer on the bar:
Me sitting on Norm's favorite bar stool:
Me on Norm's favorite bar stool with a glass of beer in my hand:
Again, me behind the bar, playing Bartender:
Finally, me going to the movies at the Paradise movie theater. First, a classic Three Stooges comedy short, Brideless Groom:
Then the classic 1968 horror film, Night of the Living Dead:
This is a real kick! That virtual world is HUGE.
By the way, here is a close up of the t shirt that I am usually wearing in the above pics:
Put down the Gin bottle, and save us from this HUGE waste of bandwidth.
Cant afford gin, so I had to settle for the cheap stuff. :-)
You could have tapped her on the shoulder...
Ah thanks. A crow bar will do just as well :-)
