What’s the metaverse? As far as I can tell it’s a made-up word that pretty much means whatever you want it to mean. No one really knows what the metaverse is but that doesn’t stop budding entrepreneurs from trying to make money on it. Maybe you’re seen people wear those virtual reality headsets so they can pretend they’re dating Scarlett Johansson. Someone probably is dating Scarlett but it’s certainly not a guy in the metaverse. We live in the universe complete with water, land, global warming, Covid, and stupid people talking about stuff they know nothing about on TV…kind of like the metaverse. Expect to hear a lot about the metaverse in the future and don’t feel embarrassed if you don’t know what it really is. Just enjoy your date with Scarlett and hope that she doesn’t care about the metaverse either. I’m Grumpy Old Dan Smith: Hear more on WLHA, the Big 64.
