Are the Ducks Doomed?

/me weeps. Duck Disorientation is spreading. Maybe they don’t WANT to change. Where is the support group for the directionally-challenged ducks??? /me implores: Is there no script doctor who can save my ducks???

There's not much to say about me. I discovered SecondLife by accident, wandered in, and decided I wanted to stay. This blog was a chronicle of my adventures and misadventures in SL. It also includes stray thoughts that occur to me as a result of my time in SL. Both I and my avatar are female. We both love water and the beach and gardening and parties and hanging out with friends. Updating this after quite some time. I haven't appeared in SL in many many months (probably over a year by now) but SL has remained in my thoughts. I do miss my SL, but at least I still have contact with some of my friends from there. In the meantime.... this blog has evolved to be about my RL adventures. :) Nowhere near as risque as my SL but I do keep busy. I still like all the things listed above. I didn't have any cats in SL (only ducks and a panda) so my cats feel that they should play starring roles in my posts. :) I didn't do much eating IN SL although certainly food and drink accompanied me in RL while I roamed inworld. Cooking and baking have become more fun and interesting once I redid my kitchen. That renovation took longer and cost more than if I'd done it virtually, but I'm thrilled to have a tangible new kitchen! I hope you like food and drink as well! Thanks for reading!

  1. Poor ducks…

    put them back right side up… right click each and go to tools, reset scripts in selection

    that should fix them 😉

    if not…. maybe they are missing their mother and are distraught

  2. I laughed when I saw the one on the right with his legs up in the air >.<

    Perhaps invest in some animal aquatic gear so they can live happily and unhindered in their new found orientation. The upside-down duck scuba mask!

    That or the script reseting solution Bailey posted.

  3. /me scowls fiercely. i have reset and reset AND RESET the scripts!!!! I am telling you – this is a SERIOUS problem!!! It’s becoming quite clear. The ducks do NOT want to change. They don’t need resetting. They need deprogramming!! (or scuba equipment)

  4. /me laughs and offers to try to reprogram them at first opportunity. Although their original programming is soooo simple that I still can’t imagine what’s wrong…

  5. Having examined the ducks, it appears to me that they are swimming about quite happily, albeit rather upside-down. I think they -must- be doing it on purpose…

  6. Just to close the loop, as we say in the Business World, my theory is that once in awhile a duck would swim into very shallow water (and/or into another duck), get flipped over by the impact, and (not knowing any better) continue to swim about in the new orientation. We have now taught the ducks that the only proper way to swim about is upright, and (cross fingers) the training seems to have taken. At least that’s my story (and I’m stickin’ to it).

  7. Nonsense. They were striking to make a point. Once yellowness was achieved, harmony was restored. That’s MY story and I’m sticking to THAT one! But I AM having problems with the green fish….. 🙂
