Well, hello, there, citizens. I was eating tofu and rice over at the local Japanese joint and I was thinking...

So there's the Sims, the best-selling computer game ever, that has you performing mundane tasks such as making your Sim eat or use the bathroom. It should be the worst game ever. Why should we feel so comfortable playing a game that's so much like... life?

That's when it hit me, over veggies and soy sauce. We're all Sims. Every single one of us is preoccupied in doing Sim-like tasks day in and day out, with the only difference being that it's from a first-person perspective and we don't get the godlike power of manipulating an entire family of Sims. We must look like troubled ants to the Hypothetical Alien Warlords, chuckling about how feeble our brains are.

Point, click, eat, point, click, shit...
