Via Boing Boing. Your character in The Sims 2 can apparently play the original "The Sims". Not that I've played any, but I'm waiting for the Sims 3 so that I can play the Sims by my Sim inside the Sims 2! In a related news, universities are offering courses in Second Life, another real-life simulator, but in multiplayer networked environment. Graduating can probably only give you a job inside Second Life though.
