Life Lessons From The Sims—Like Selling Your Windows For Cash!
Looking up life hacks on Pinterest can get tiresome. Luckily, a recent study found that the secret to a satisfying life has been right in front of us since the year 2000. Apparently, The Sims provides the best model for living your best life. So let’s take a break from playing God to absorb some of those life lessons from The Sims.
1. Sell Your Windows For Cash
Are you almost always short on money at the end of each month? Well, turns out you can just sell your windows for some extra cash! If you run out of windows to sell, yell “MOTHERLODE” into the abyss over and over, and if you’re lucky, 50,000 buckaroos should appear in your bank account.
2. Put A Plate In Front Of Your Door To Thwart Intruders
Have your kids been getting in the way of you getting it on? Put a plate in front of your door! They’ll never be able to get past that one.
3. Get Yourself Promoted
Getting ahead in this life takes hard work, and according to the life lessons we learned from The Sims, that hard work mostly entails playing chess over and over and over and over and over again until your skill levels increase. Seems like a valuable use of your time!
4. Casually Murder By Way Of Pool Ladders
Is your nosey neighbor still accusing you of stealing the “Proud Honor Roll Parent” magnet off his car? Invite him over for a pool party and get rid of the ladder! Then just put the ladder back in after he’s dead. It’s sure to go off without a hitch.
5. Cheat Death
Did you accidentally die from forgetting to check your hunger meter? The best way to revive yourself is by flirting with the Grim Reaper. All of those Art Of Seduction books you read after college will finally pay off, and you won’t need to reunite with Great Uncle Frank just yet.
And if all else fails, just right click on anything. You want to live your best boolprop_testingcheatsenabled truth, and you should.
