A world being abandoned so fast the Lab can't keep up with the foreclosures
On April 13, 2010 the Alphaville Herald posted a story about how to squat on virtual land, written by my genius hero, Pappy Enoch. The next day I went soaring over the mainland looking for abandoned land, and found two huge parcels adjoining a small piece of land that allows me to rez items. It is heaven. I have been squatting on these parcels for well over a year now, and I wanted to thank the Herald by sharing some pictures of my sister and I on our (borrowed) land.
The abandoned land, besides the small parcel with full permissions, is also surrounded by regular folks who have built businesses and such at ground level. One of them contacted me several months after I started squatting to ask about all my junk in the sky, but I played dumb and haven't heard from him since.
Because we have two abandoned parcels, we have lots of prims to play with. I have used the smaller of the parcels for a house, complete with stripper poles on the front deck, where my friends and I like to party.
On the other parcel I've built a giant platform, complete with another house, and I use this for examining some of the larger freebies I find on the grid, such as the awesome sewer system by Arcadia Asylum, which I have set up on the parcel as well. (Like I said, it's a big parcel).
Thanks again to the Herald for being so awesome, and to Pappy for giving us the keys to the kingdom. Thanks also to the Lindens for making a world that is being abandoned so fast they can't keep up with the foreclosures.
I know I'll probably take some heat in the comments for this, so I'll just say that if I make it another year without being run-off this land, I'll send topless pictures.
