Wooden water tower in Hobo Island
Water tower. There is no need for a water tower, but it is part of a hobo SIM and hobos, or so the myths go, travel the rails and cheap wooden water towers are used to provide water to the rail.
Not sure if you would see anything like this at all in a modern railroad, but the use of visual memory we have, and how many visual myths people "know" without understanding. And that is what is kind of interesting about Second Life, nothing you see does anything it just says things. Its not really a space its a movie. In Zizeck's new movie about film he walks in to the sets of famous movies, to watch what happens. That is kind of what SL is like.
