What has the (virtual) world come to?

$26,500 for a tropical island, sounds too good to be true, right? Of course it is, because this piece of volcanic rock doesn't actually exist in the real world; it is a piece of a virtual real estate found in the MMORPG Project Entropia. After reading this article, which details this act of fiscal irresponsibility, I am taken aback by three facts:

  1. Australians have internet connections.
  2. That it is plausible that David Storey, the nut in question, could make a profit off of leasing virtual mining & hunting rights.
  3. There are people--educated people, mind you--who study the economies of virtual worlds.

I am not so sure about intelligent life on Earth, but if it is to be found, I am now betting it will be discovered in a video game.

I will never be able to afford wasting $26,500 in a year--college doesn't count, since I already graduated, however, if I did have that kind of money it would be wasted on pizza, porn and pork products.

Puppet Master V. Demonic Toys

Remember Corey Feldman, well this is what he does now.

I am a semi-fan of the Puppet Master series, so I am actually going to sit through this Sci Fi Original, that and I don't have a social life--my Saturday's are empty from now until ad infinitum.

By the way, Vanessa Angel is still hot and she still can't act, too. I miss the days of Weird Science (T.V. Series) and the lotion aided glory that came with watching Vanessa Angel playact as a computer jinni.
