VSL:WEB // New evidence that life could be worse

The Simulator has been kicking around for an eternity now — 12 years, to be exact. But thanks to our new economy, this excellent Web game is perfectly timely.

You wake up and (do or do not) hit the snooze button. You eat and drive to work (at a fast-food franchise). You work and work and work some more. And then you drive home, eat, watch TV, sleep, and (do or do not) dream (about working at a fast-food franchise). It’s hard to make it through the day. But if you do (it takes about six minutes), you’ll have a newfound appreciation for your own daily grind. Unless, of course, you work at a fast-food franchise.
