Are Lucky Chairs Really Safe?
REPOSTED FROM CMNF & NIP Girls BLOG, NO LONGER AVAILABLE:
DATELINE 31 DECEMBER 2009
Lucky Prize Chairs have been with us since the dawn of time. Or at least most of our Second Lives. They are those funny looking red chairs that are terribly uncomfortable looking used by shop owners to attract business. They offer a quick thrill of victory to anyone whose name happens to start with the right letter.
But we’re learning that these prize chairs are not always what they appear to be. There have been increasing reports of malfunctions, striping, electric shocks, even beheadings have occurred when prize chairs go bad.
We went to Prize Chair Headquarters “Lucky Enterprises” hoping to get a comment from inventor Shep Korvin.
Mr. Korvin was not available for comment, but we did get a chance to look around his store. There are a wide variety of prize machines offered, from those familiar red chairs to pyramids and a whole lot more.
Closer investigation of one model reveals part of the problem, there’s a buzz saw connected to the back!
It seams that rival prize chair makers are willing to put poor avies through now end of tortures for their bit of bling. From electricity to flames!
This isn’t even the real problem as most of these SL wounds are totally healable. But Mr. Lucky Chair’s own blog shows the depth of the real problem. There are those out there whose entire second life is spent obsessing over these chairs.
Which leads us to the obsessive chair paradise. We didn’t bother to count the number of chairs here, but if you can’t find at least 6 prizes here for you when you rez, you’re not looking, or your name begins with punctuation!
Clever programmers have even found a way to enlist Santa in the prize chair game.
But be careful! When this Santa realized I was from Naughty News he took action, and I have the lump of coal to prove it!
Even if you’re only an occasional Prize Chair jumper, there’s something for you to find and enjoy. Like this lovely tattoo I won at BiSentual.
Keep you eyes open and don’t be afraid to take a chance. For Naughty News, I’m Zimmi Warwick.
