13 Rules of Life According to The Sims

Don't trust anyone. Facts? Don't be fooled. "Facts" are merely a scheme, a global conspiracy aimed at hiding the truth from us. And let me tell you in post-truth times, the only real source of knowledge about life are The Sims, so pay good attention.

After entering adolescence, everyone knows how to drive a car

Evening. The feeling of this original freedom and independence. Only you, velocity, music and the road. You just got behind the wheel for the first time in your life.

Many of you can certainly remember that moment in high school, where everyone suddenly grew up, got hammered at birthday parties every week, and enrolled for a driver's license course. Well. I hate to be the one to break it to you, but you wasted time and money. Having reached the age of adolescence, the ability to drive a car comes as naturally as anything. No one knows what triggers this effect. Perhaps the civilization, perhaps some omnipotent being from California. One thing is for sure there's no need for any courses. Waiting until eighteen is pointless, too. Any examination neither theoretical nor practical isn't necessary. Shut up and drive, as one singer put it.

No one will give you back the wasted time and effort, but at least you can spare your children a similar waste. This is what believing urban legends leads to. Think about it has anyone ever got a speeding ticket? The answer is simple no, because there's no institution that could issue it. And even such an institution existed, you could just reach the end of the road next to your home and disappear. No consequence at all.
