Default Anyone investing in this Metaverse thing?

I got my very first email today for a retail store that just opened in the metaverse. I briefly heard about this metastuff...but didn't really think it was a thing. But now thinking I need to start really looking into this. Apparently you can already purchase land and items in it.

I've put some more funds into FB, they have something like $60B in cash I believe. That said, I'm terrific at losing money.

Crypto made no sense to me at first but made a lot of folks wealthy.

This makes no sense to me either. Absolutely none.

Ditto! Regrettably I was hammered with , "if you cannot understand an opportunity within the 1st or possibly the 2nd time it is presented that opportunity is not for you!" Between crypto and meta I am totally loss.

Have you guys watched the movie ‘Ready Player One’?

Those darned kids and their interwebs.. seriously, remember back in the 90 with the dotcom boom and everyone thought people were crazy, SAME CONCEPT.

You just have to figure out what will be the Google, Amazon, Facebook, etc... tons of money to be made because most people are scared or don't understand it.

I wanna get groped on the Metaverse to see how that works. Metoo metaverse.

I also wanna jump off a metavisual building and stand on a mountain to see if I get the same vertigo at great heights and precipices in real life. Itd be cool if I could use a metamountain for a therapy by which to cure my height vertigo tendency.

like anything, it can be used for good and evil.
since man is involved, I see this thing going bad .
the founders will pitch this as the next best thing to sliced bread but look for a moment and see how much damage the simple games have done to the younger generation.
No one knows how to work anymore.
This is gonna be bad. Can anything good come out of zuckerberg and his crew?

While everyone's in their dark room turning white and enjoying their fake world, I'll go out and enjoy the great outdoors as there will be less people out there

It’s just the next step in total control. So many kids are addicted to social media and virtual reality it’s not even funny. Even scarier, there are parents that are addicted already.

and what baffles me are the people that are willing to invest in this to make money. i'm not talking about the crazy rich elites, i'm talking about the middle class guys, that are ok with putting their money into something like this knowing the ill effects on society.
i guess money is the root of all evil so why should i be surprised? anything to make a buck.
