17 Lies "The Sims" Told Us About Real Life

In real life there is no rosebud ;!;!;!;!;!;!;!;

1. You have to be in love to WooHoo.

In real life you can WooHoo with whoever you want, for as long as you want. Except if you call it WooHoo, you probably won't be WooHoo-ing with anyone soon.

2. You can get rid of anyone who’s annoying you by building a wall around them and watching them die.

Even if we put aside the various moral, ethical, and legal problems of just killing everybody who pisses you off, do you have any idea how long it takes to build a wall? By the time you've even laid the foundations they'll have gone home and called the police on your murdering ass.


6. You can sell a window to buy a pizza if you're broke. / Jo Barrow / BuzzFeed

You can't do this. No matter how delicious pizza is, you literally just can't hack a hole in your wall when you're hungry. What a terrible idea.

7. Finding a job is easy.

Ha. No. It's not. You'll spend hours and hours searching for a job, crafting the perfect CV and cover letter, applying, and then NEVER HEARING ANYTHING AGAIN.


8. Dating is a smooth, easy process – just a matter of the right formula of actions and steady escalation into romance.

If you actually went out into the real world and just introduced yourself to people walking past your house and attempted to smooth-talk them, you probably wouldn't end up with a date – just a restraining order.

10. Growing up is a matter of swirly Disney-esque graphics and sparkles.

Growing up is embarrassing and hard enough without confetti to let everyone know you're "entering the next life stage".


14. You are an architectural genius, a whizz kid of interior design.

In real life, the nearest thing you get to interior design is replacing all the posters on your wall once in a while.

16. Talking to yourself in the mirror makes it easier to make friends.

Actually, in the real world, mirror talking is reserved purely for psyching yourself up before the big game/speech/rap-off. Otherwise, it's more likely to scare off potential friends.
