World's most improbable blog?

It is early days yet in terms of content but reckon this is only slightly more unlikely than, say, Prince Charles or Basil Brush having a blog (unless they do? gawd, surely not).


Sim University – More real than reality?

Writing about web page http://thesims2.ea.com/about/ep1_index.php

Now I suspect that this has been around for a while but have only just noticed.

There is something fascinating and yet absolutely appalling about these descriptions though:

In The Sims 2 University players for the first time will play through the new "young adult" life stage as their Sims head off to university and join the campus crowd. Whether they live in the halls or rush a fraternity or sorority that's just the beginning…Sims can choose from one of 11 courses and by keeping their grades on track, they'll secure a final degree and open up 4 new career paths. Players will enjoy all-new university based wants and fears that are tied to their Sims' social life and academic goals which will lead to new rewards and powers that will help them achieve their goals and aspirations in university and beyond.

Sims

Pranks, parties and university social interactions add to the excitement while your Sims explore campus locations such as university lounges, pool halls, gyms and coffee houses. As in real life, if your Sims start running low on funds, they can earn Simoleans by picking up a part time job, like tutoring, or engaging in riskier affairs like printing money as a member of the "secret society".
Of course, making the right decisions can lead your Sim to the ultimate goal of becoming "Big Sim on Campus" in The Sims 2 University.

I really do want to know how to be the real equivalent of the Big Sim…
