Money

August 4, 2008

I was having a conversation over coffee with my friend and we got to talking about his temperature sensitive teeth. (We talk about a lot of weird things, so this isn’t a terribly unusual topic.) I had suggested picking up a tube of Sensodyne toothpaste to keep in his medicine cabinet but he refuses to pay more then 2 bucks for toothpaste (even if he only uses it as necessary.) I guess living with the pain of sensitive teeth is worth the 4 dollar difference for some people.

I bring this up because I’ve been lurking around the SL thread over on Facepunch that NWN linked to a few days ago. The question of “what’s an easy way to make money?” keeps popping up and the answer is a) camping or b) buying L$ with real money.

People have a weird relationship with their cash. Camping for 20 L$ per hour is a really good rate but it only works out ~38 RL cents an hour. You can make more in an hour by sitting on the street with your hat out and a cardboard sign. Just bust out the old credit card and be done with it.

Does anyone actually enjoy camping?
