[1.01] Introduction

"Creativity, inspirition, motivation, incentives, and enthusiasm are now a
 major part of your neighbourhood! Your Sims can now dive into spending time
 on their favourite hobbies and focus their lives on furfilling their lifetime
 aspirations. Prepare to spend time discovering what your Sims really enjoy
 doing and helping them pursue their interests.

 Have your Sims explore their inner selves and find out what activities 
 inspire them. Whether it's working on their car or collecting their favourite
 bugs, there's plenty to do to keep them preoccupied.

 Welcome to FreeTime!"

Welcome to my 31st guide, and the 15th on the Sims 2 for PC. This guide will
be about the FreeTime expansion pack, that does actually add quite a lot to
the game. I'll tick off some of the additions right now.

* 5 New Careers + Rewards
* 100+ New Items
* Career Chance Cards
* 10 New Hobbies
* Chance Cards involving Hobbies
* Bug Collecting
* Lifetime Aspiration Points
* Custom Radio Stations
* The Genie
* AND MORE...

And without much further ado, I present the FreeTime guide. And just to make
sure you have the right game, it comes in a DVD CD, not a regular CD, which
comes with rich Simming goodness, bursting from the seams.

And if anyone from EA reads this, I'm extremely ticked off at your stupidity
for making this the most glitchy game ever. It is extremely hard to write 
about things that are crashing left, right and centre. Thanks for putting
money ahead of product.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[2.01] Hobbies

Hobbies are the main addition to The Sims 2 - FreeTime. This is an addition
of 10 different hobbies that your Sims can pursue, ranging from eating the
fine food of Cuisine to the fat-burning Sports. Like your skill point, there
are essentially 10 points in each hobbies, and as you progress, the more you
can do in relation to that hobby. For example, while you only have initial
interest in your hobby, you can only blog about it, and discuss with friends,
while as you gain more interest, you can go jogging or serve food platters,
whatever happens depends on your hobby. 

However, the points are not like skill points or badges, they do not stay 
forever, and to my knowledge, no cheat will allow that either. You need to
maintain the hobby interest if you want max hobbies. I will admit that it
will be a hard feat to do, and in the interests of writing this guide, I
uses many Sims to drag out the info, because 1 Sim cannot do all that at
once, the hobby enthusiasm drops very quickly just like it can rise quickly.

Over your gaming, your Sims, with Free Will or not, will have activities 
that will boost their natural enthusiasm in a hobby. Cooking is essential to
survival, and this will boost your interest in Cuisine, whether you like it
or not.

--==Natural Talents==--

For some Sims, interest in a particular activity will develop their 
enthusiasm in that hobby faster. This is denoted when you have your little
Sims perform an activity that will increase enthusiasm in a certain hobby.
If a speech bubble appears that says that they liked the activity, that means
they will have a natural talent to this specific hobby. This is also
outlined on the hobbies panel. This is accessed under the personality section
of the Sim's Panel and will be found under the kite, which will mean hobbies.
A sliver glow around a certain hobby will mean that they have a natural talent
there.

What is a natural talent and what does it do? Well, a natural talent means
that with Free Will on, they will automatically perform activities that will
increase their enthusiasm in that specific hobby that they have a natural
talent in. They will also gain their enthusiasm in their natural hobbies at a
quicker rate that those who are merely interested. 

If you don't see any silver glow around any hobbies, have your Sim perform an
activity that will involve enthusiasm in that hobby. Try all of it and look
again, because unless they have no natural talents, it will be there. But
don't let the Natural Talents stop you from other hobbies, you can easily 
disregard your natural talents and go for something else altogether. It is
up to you, because in this game, you are God. 

--==Notes on Hobbies==--

When you read below, you will find that Mannerisms will mean what your Sims
will do when they are not doing anything. Each hobby will have a skill that
will boost it, whether it is mentioned in the game's script or not and I
will not the day that the magazine will arrive in your front lawn. Also, with
the Interests that can be found in the Sims Bio, hobbies will increase the
interest in each of the Interests. The personality of your Sim will also
determine the rate it is learnt and I shall list the ones that will help the
most. The Career listed is the one best suited for your Sims as well.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[2.02] Cuisine

"Cuisine Sims enjoy creating and savouring food, as well as pitting their
 creations against a Food Judge's palate. Being good at cooking will help
 keep their Cuisine enthusiasm high.

Icon: A Platter of Food

Cuisine enthusiasm is basically gain doing anything remotely related to food.
More on that later. To maintain enthusiasm to a high level, a high cooking
skill will allow you have less maintenance than those without a high cooking
skill level. Anyway, lets go through the benefits of the skill levels
in Cuisine.

Mannerisms       : Rub your Tummy
Personality      : Neat, Lazy
Skills Based On  : Cooking
Titles (2-4)     : Tasty Appetizer
       (5-7)     : Talented Palate
       (8-9)     : Delicious Dish
       (1 0)     : Master Chef
Magazine Arrives : Friday
Interests        : Food
Career           : Culinary

--==Benefits==--

At Enthusiasm Level 1: Talk About Cuisine
At this skill level, you can talk to other Sims about Cuisine, and this will
allow them to create an interest about Cuisine in other Sims. This is done
by click on the Sim you wish to talk to and select "Talk About Hobby" and 
then select the hobby. If both Sims equally enjoy the same hobby, it will 
build up their relationship faster than normal talking as well.

At Enthusiasm Level 2: Read Food and Dining Section
At this skill level, you are able to use the newspaper and read the food and
dining section in the newspaper. This will allow you to gain more anthusiasm
in Cuisine in general. It will increase your Enthusiasm rather quickly and
it will also boost your Fun meter, because it is fun to read about what you
enjoy most.

At Enthusiasm Level 3: Serve Chips Platter
This allows your Sim to entertain guests by serving a Chips platter from the
fridge. This is done by clicking the fridge, "Serve Platter" and selecting the
Chips option from it. This is like another group meal, there are 5 serves per
platter. A great party entertainer, no prepartion time is needed. It was like
those chips were just there. My only problem is that the chips were in the
fridge. Who will eat cold chips?

At Enthusiasm Level 4: Browse Web About Cuisine
At this specific skill level, you are able to use any computer and surf the
internet about the big world of Cuisine. This will further increase your
enthusiasm in the world of Cuisine.

At Enthusiasm Level 5: Serve Cheese Platter
This allows your Sims to further entertain your guests by serving a Cheese
platter from your fridge. This is done the same way as the Chips platter, 
select the fridge, serve platter and select the cheese option. Another party
option, it is quick to do this, no time is needed to make this. Another gripe
is that the biscuits were in the fridge, people don't eat cold biscults.

At Enthusiasm Level 6: Share Hobby Tips About Cuisine
At this level, you can share hobby tips about the art of cuisine to other
Sims that you deem worthy. This will help increase the enthuiasm gained by
the other Sim. This only applies to group activities, so if you are in a group
activity for this hobby with other Sims, you will boost their enthusiasm for
this hobby faster than before.

At Enthusiasm Level 7: Blog Tips About Cuisine
This allows your Sim to further gain more anthusiasm by Blogging about Cuisine
on the Internet, which can be done via any computer. This allows a faster 
anthusiasm gain than browsing the web for news about cuisine. 

At Enthusiasm Level 8: Serve Appetizer Platter
This is the final sort of food platter in which you can serve. Like the Chips
and Cheese platters, this is done by selecting the fridge, serve platter and
choosing the appetizers option. This is better, because it looks more tasty
than the above two. A great party dish, instant and cheap, compared to a 
pizza.

At Enthusiasm Level 9: Instruct in Cuisine
You are now eligble to teach other Sims in the art of cuisine. While you
wonder around, other Sim, who are not as skilled as you are in the art of
Cuisine, can walk up to you and "Ask" for tips on cuisine and they will be
instructed.

At Enthusiasm Level 10: In the Zone
At this level, you are now In the Zone. This allows your Sim to have a slower
rate of decay and continue their work uninterrupted whilst performing 
activities that are related to Cuisine. 

--==Activities==--

There are certain activities that will increase your enthusiasm in Cuisine and
I will list them for you to see, in all its glory.

Cooking Food - The most obvious of all the activities. Eat it as well, don't
               waste food. 
Eating Food  - This is the reason why you cook food, right? Also, when you
               eat out, such as in a Restaurant from the Nightlife expansion 
               and Deluxe edition.
Tea Set      - The Tea Set from Bon Voyage will increase your enthusiasm for
               Cuisine.
Reading      - Reading about it in the subscribed magazine, or in the 
               newspaper, as well as the internet. You will also increase your
               appreciation on cuisine by studying it out of a book from the
               bookshelf.
Blogging     - You can blog about this to increase your anthusiasm
Writing      - You will gain interest in Cuisine when you decide to write a 
               restaurant guide. This is the third benefit for the Pleasure
               Seeker aspiration and the 4th for those who have it as a 
               secondary aspiration. 
Television   - The Yummy Channel on the television is the best place for you
               to learn about the big bad world of cuisine. 
Rewards      - Using the Chocolate Maker, the Career Reward object from the
               Culinary Career Track.
Nectars      - Good to drink and it increases your appreciation in the fine
               art of Cuisine.
Kid Stove    - You can also gain interest from a kid stove, however, you need
               to be a kid for this.

--==Cooking Contest==--

If you can't get enough of Iron Chef, you can participate in cooking contest.
This is where you can go to community lots and compete to get the Blue
Ribbon and a Cash Prize. To enter the cooking contest, you need to create a 
meal at home and it has to be a group meal. Anyway, get the platter and place
it in your inventory, uneaten. You can then head to a community lot where
there is a food judging table and you can submit your entry there. To win,
this will depend on the food cooked, the more expensive it costs, the higher
cooking skill you have, and whether it is cooked or burnt will determine 
whether you win or not. If you win, you get the prize, you lose, try again.
The cash prize is 500 Simoleons if anyone was actually wondering, and the
Blue Ribbon makes you feel good. Especially if you beat the Secret Lot's 
instructor.

--==Nectars==--

Nectars are basically a new type of drink. From the base game you had some
drinks from the bar, and now you have Nectars. They come in 3 flavours, Grape,
Berry and Peach and they will replenish your Hunger and Fun bars at the 
expense of bladder. They are found from the nectar bar, which there is only
one of. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[2.03] Arts and Crafts

"Painters, photographers, tailors and potters are all bound by their love of
 art. Creativity is key for Sims to remain enthusiastic about Arts and 
 Crafts."

Icon: An Artist's Brush

easiest ones to gain. If you maintain a high level of creativity, the
maintenance for arts and crafts will be relatively low and easier for you
to maintain.

"The television and the bookshelf are honoured places for those Sims that 
 thrive on stories. The film and literature Sim revels in the comedy and
 the mystery present in all intricate narratives."

Icon: A Film Reel

This is a more energising hobby and one that your Sims will be fun to maintain
since it is more of an outdoor activity. The problem is, if you have Seasons,
it won't be pretty to be outside too long since you can get sunburnt. I am
sure it is Seasons because you don't go jogging to the beach, in answers to
people claiming it is from Bon Boyage.

--==Activities==--

There are a fair few of activities that are related to Gaming and these are
quite easy to identify.

Board Games - The Board Game is under the gaming section, and it is a table
              game. You should be able to find it.
Darts       - Hey, it is a game you know.
Bowling     - For those with Nightlife or Deluxe, Bowling is considered a 
              game, and not a sport. 
Chess       - It is a game, albeit one for the nerdier type.
Poker       - It's a game, and difficult to determine if it is a game or a
              sport.
Video Games - Whether it is on the comptuer or on the console, it is a game
              in its own right.
Arcade Games- The Arcade Style games from University or the Pinball machine,
              even the Gaming Career Reward Pinball Machine from Seasons will
              increase your interest in gaming.
Model Toys  - Play around with remote control toys, and this will increase
              your interest in Gaming.
Mahjong     - Although in Bon Voyage and is considered gambling, it is still
              a game none the less.
Myshuno     - The most annoying game is back, with more plumbob pulling and
              more enthusiasm.
Marco Polo  - Although it is in the pool and should be considered to be a
              sport, it is a game instead.

--==Contest==--

If you wish, you can have a contest with the electronic games. You can select
a computer and have a competition with other Sim by selecting what games you
want to compete in. The more Sims that will join in, the more bittersweet the
victory will be. You can win money in this, but like a LAN party, people don't
tend to just this gaming contest, and even those cooking contests have more
competitors than this.

--==Activities==--

There are plenty of ways to gain pure interest in the pure art of tinkering. 
And bear in mind, these can actually make money.

Tinker     - Around the house, you can tinker with many mechanical items. This
             will increase your interest in Tinkering.
Train Set  - By playing around with the train set and adding a town, water,
             mountain, signs and trees, you will increase your tinkering  
             skills.
Cars       - You can purchase a broken down car and redo the car and make it
             new all again. This is sure to increase your skill in tinkering.
Robots     - By using the Robot Bench from Open for Business, you will
             increase your enthusiasm in Tinkering. 
Repairing  - After all your tinkering, you need to repair the broken items
             and after you fix it, gain some enthusiasm in tinkering.
RC         - Playing with the Remote Control Car and Helicopter will help
             you in your enthusiasm problem. 

--==Tinkering==--

Tinkering is going to electronical items and seeing if you can tinker with
it. If you can, you will see the Tinker option available from the item. This
Tinker option basically allows you to play around with the items and if
you successfully tinker it, you will restore the value of the item to full
price. After that, you can sell it again. But be sure that you have a high
mechanical skill before you do this because it may zap you a tad if you do
not have a high mechanical skill.

--==Restoring Cars==--

You can restore the old, broken down car into a customized car and sell it
for a massive profit. All you need is the broken car and a driveway to place
it on. To restore the car, you need to work on the engine and the body of
the car. The Body can be done in a single go with one Sim, while another
Sim can concentrate on the Engine. It will take a few tries to fix the 
engine, so keep a watchful eye on the Sim repairing the engine of the car.

Once it is complete, you can paint the car in a variety of colours, from
Blue, to Black, to Green, to Orange, to Siler, to White and finally
Yellow. Even if you have painted it once, you can paint it again and
finally sell it at a nice price of 5,200 Simoleons, quite a tidy sum for
yourself. This is quite useful because it pays well and doesn't drain a lot
of time. If you have Open for Business, you can consider opening a Garage
because this will make some fair money.

"Staying healthy is particularly important to Sims who care about fitness. 
 Exercise by jogging or swimming and things like yoga and tai chi make them 
 feel good. Sims with high body skill will gain Fitness Enthusiasm faster

               just as good as working with a telescope.

               Machine, you harness the force of Science over Nature.

[2.11] Music and Dance

"Music and Dance are great pasttimes. Sims can play instruments, listen to
 music or try different types of dances, all of which will increase their
 enthusiasm for this wonderful activity. High creativity makes it easier for
 Sims to gain enthusiasm in this area."

Icon: Music Note

This is a more entertaining hobby since it has to do with music and dance.
This is easy to do, if your Sims are more music orientated. 

Mannerisms       : Drumming on your Leg, Humming, Practicing Ballet, Whistle
Personality      : Outgoing, Serious
Skills Based On  : Creativity
Titles (2-4)     : Foot Tapper
       (5-7)     : Rhythm Junkie
       (8-9)     : Groove Master
       (1 0)     : One with the Beat
Magazine Arrives : Monday
Interests        : Entertainment, Culture
Career           : Music, Dance

--==Benefits==--

At Enthusiasm Level 1: Talk About Music and Dance
At this level, you are able to talk to other Sims about the world of Music and
Dance and this allows you to perk up their interest in this specific hobby and
increases their enthusiasm in the topic. If both Sims equally enjoy the same 
hobby, it will build up their relationship faster than normal talking as well.

At Enthusiasm Level 2: Read Music and Culture Section
This allows your Sims to read the Music and Culture section in the newspaper 
that is delivered to your front lawn daily, provided that it doesn't get 
stolen en route to your house. It will increase your Enthusiasm rather quickly
and it will also boost your Fun meter, because it is fun to read about what 
you enjoy most.

At Enthusiasm Level 4: Browse Web About Music and Dance
This will effectively allow your Sim to use the Interest to browse for web
sites that are related to Music and Dance. This will further increase their
enthusiasm for their hobby.

At Enthusiasm Level 6: Share Hobby Tips About Music and Dance
This will allow you to share tips about Music and Dance to other Sim who may 
be struggling with their hobby, so you basically edge them along and 
increase the enthusiasm in that other Sim. This only applies to group 
activities, so if you are in a group activity for this hobby with other Sims,
you will boost their enthusiasm for this hobby faster than before.

At Enthusiasm Level 7: Blog About Music and Dance
This basically allows your Sim to use the computer and blog on the internet
about Music and Dance. This will allow them to gain more enthusiasm in Music
and Dance in general.

At Enthusiasm Level 9: Instruct in Music and Dance
This is where other Sims can go up and ask your Sim to help instruct them
in the secrets of Music and Dance. All the other Sim has to do is to click 
on the Sim and then select "Ask" and ask to be instructed.

At Enthusiasm Level 10: In the Zone
You are now in the Zone. This allows your Sim to have uninterrupted work
and slower needs decay whilst perform activities that are related to the
Music and Dance. 

--==Activities==--

These activities will be quite obvious given the name of the hobby that is
being undertaken. Well, they all relate with music and dance in some way,
shape or form.

Dancing   - Whether you are dancing with another person or dancing to the
            radio, you are still dancing and this will increase your interest
            in said activity. Even watching people dance will increase your
            interest in this hobby.
Ballet    - By doing this activity, whether with your generic, run of the
            mill bar or the Golden Bar from the Dance Career, it will increase
            youe enthusiasm in the music and dance department.
Music     - By playing a musical instrument, whether from the University
            expansion pack or from the newest add ons from FreeTime or  
            The Rock Hammer reward from Music in Seasons, you will increase
            your interest in music by performing music. 
Stereo    - Listening to music from the stereo will help you understand what
            Music and Dance is all about.
DJ Booth  - When you are mixing the rhymes that come out of the DJ booth,
            your enthusiasm in Music and Dance will increase.
Karaoke   - Whilst the music being produced may not be the highest quality
            it can be, it will increase your enthusiasm in music.
MP3 Player- A smaller extension of the Stereo, this will help you here.
Singing   - While you are not playing around with a Karaoke machine, singing
            is still considered music, disgusting as it may be.
Synth     - While mixing music with the modular synth, it will be music and
            will increase enthusiasm nonetheless.

--==Dance Contest==--

Sometimes, your Sims may get the urge to enter a dance contest. This can be
done at the secret lot for the music and dance hobbies studio, where you can
get a DJ to dance off with you. Another person will contest that you are the
best, and this will end in a contest, and one person, the one with more
skill, will end up as the victor. And to the victor goes the spoils. The 
spoils of a few hundred Simoleons, and that isn't actually a princely sum. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[2.12] Hobbie Benefits

Of course, there will be benefits of having a hobby. The ones that I won't
mention are those already mentioned above in their respective topics. The 
first will be IN THE ZONE.

--==Magazine Subscription==--

At enthusiasm level 3, the Sim can use the phone to subscribe to a magazine
in which they can read. This magazine will be delivered weekly and can only
be read a certain number of times before the magazine self-destructs. This
allows you to gain more enthusiasm in that subject as well as anyone else who
decides to read the magazine, since it is not restricted to reading, only to
subscribing to the magazine in the first place. Once you subscribe, you stay
so, even if your enthusiasm dips below 3. Each are worth 15 Simoleons each
when you sell it in buy mode and they have names. 

Cuisine             - What's Cooking
Arts and Crafts     - At-Home Artist
Film and Literature - Modern Media Magazine
Sports              - Sporty Sims
Games               - Games Sims Play
Nature              - Outdoorsy
Tinkering           - D-I-Y
Fitness             - Workin' It Out
Science             - SimScientific
Music and Dance     - ... and Headphones

--==In the Zone==--

Once your Sims ahve reach the maximum level for their hobby, they will be in
the zone for that hobby's activities. This basically means, when they perform
an activity related to the maxed out hobby, they will have a white glow that
will indicate that they are In the Zone.

What does this do? Well, while they are performing that activity, they will
forget about anything that is around them and they will not be distracted.
This is handy if your little dudes are prone to distraction or hate being
interrupted by phone calls. You can even ignore fires if you are in the 
zone! Anyway, the second benefit, and by far the more valuable one is that 
you will have a slower overall decay of your moods. Therefore, hunger, 
comfort, bladder, energy, fun, social and hygiene will decay at a slower rate
than usual, and that will leave you more time to focus on your special 
hobby.

--==Secret Lots==--

Something that I will talk about later, but this is intended to be a brief 
overview of it. Anyway, these secret lots are basically secret areas in the
neighbourhood of Hobbies, that you can access once you have 5 enthusiasm 
points in a hobby. There are 10 secret lots, one for each hobby and this will
be a place where you can improve your enthusiasm in your hobby as well as 
a helpful instructor who can help you improve your enthusiasm even more, and
this will increase your enthusiasm level. You can also take other Sims along
with you, even though they do not have membership. This is the only way
children can access a secret lot, being accompanied by an adult. 

The secret lots are:

Cuisine             - Sue's Secret Kitchen
Arts and Crafts     - My Muse II - Art Studio
Film and Literature - Desirable Discourse Film & Literature Club
Sports              - Dreamy Fields
Games               - Games of Glory
Nature              - Peerless Park Nature Retreat
Tinkering           - Will's Garage
Fitness             - Platinum Gym
Science             - Aspirational Laboratories
Music and Dance     - My Muse - Music & Dance Studio

--==Plaque==--

Once you have reached the highest possible enthusiasm level for a certain
hobbie, the leader of the secret lot will come and greet you, and this will
end up giving your Sim a plaque in recognition of their achievements. This is
worth 120 Simoleons but it is better if you hand it on the wall and have your
head held high.

[6.01] Carefree Koi Pond by Simulated Life

"Nothing says "I Love Nature" more than accepting it in your own backyard.
 This simulated koi pond creates the perfect environment for our extraordinary
 long-lived koi. The built-in filtration system converts any organic material
 into specically formulated koi food and removes all waste products without
 you having to life a finger - all you have to do is watch and enjoy!"

Carefree Koi Pond by Simulated Life
Job Level       : Level 6 - Marine Biologist (Oceanography)
Increase Skill  : None
Increase Motive : Fun - 10, Environment - 10
Bonus           : Nature Interest

This job reward is basically a new form of aquarium. This is where you can
watch and feed fish, the same as a regular fish tank, except what makes this
one more special than a normal fish tank is that it will increase the interest
of Nature in any Sim that bothers to observes it. Other than that, it is a 
nice decoration for the outdoors, since it has to be placed on grass tiles,
and not tiles with flooring over it, so outside it goes. It will go nicely 
with a zen garden.

[6.02] "Starstruck" Personal Fame Stars

"Let others bask in your glow with this bona-fide Personal Fame Star. It's
 not only a great conservation starter, it's a way to let the world know
 "They Love Me! They really love me!"

"Starstruck" Personal Fame Stars
Job Level       : Level 5 - Ventriloquist (Entertainment)
Increase Skill  : None
Increase Motive : Social - ?
Bonus           : None

This is one of the more worthless job rewards other there, since it does
pretty much nothing. The only thing it does do, besides it being available
in two colours, a black or white star, is that it will increase the Social
bar of any Sim that goes near it. Other than that, there are no real uses
to this item. Great decoration, place it on your front door, or make a 
walk of fame, but other than that, pointless. You can't even interact with  
this item!

[6.03] SIM Series Drafting Table by QuicKraft

"QuicKraft introduces the SIM series Drafting Table. This perfectly angled 
 drafting table sues the finest materials and an ergonomic design to
 create the clutter-free workspace needed to develop your talent in 
 technical drawing."

SIM Series Drafting Table by QuicKraft
Job Level       : Level 6 - Draftsman (Architecture)
Increase Skill  : Creativity
Increase Motive : Fun - 5
Bonus           : Arts & Craft Interest

One of the better rewards out there, this is basically another easel to work
on, instead of paintings, you make blueprints. You have the choice to Draft
Blueprint, Draft Scene or Draft Custom. Drafting a Scene is basically taking
a photo with the in-game camera and using the Drafting Table to make a drawing
out of that scene. Draft custom is basically the same, but you get to draft
another picture of something else. The Draft Blueprint is the main option. 

The option basically allows you to draw a blueprint of an item, and there are
4 that your Sim can draft. They can draft a car (the customised car), the
UFO decoration, the Grand Piano from Bon Voyage and the Weathernaught Weather
Changer from Seasons. After your Sim has spent roughly 4 hours on this, they
will end up with a technical drawing in your inventory. You can sell this
drawing or mount it up on the wall. Like the easel, the more you draw, the
more the drawings will be worth. Again, one of the better rewards out there
that you can obtain.

[6.04] Better Barre by Deuxjoint Ltd.

"The ballet barre is an essential component for practice whether you're a 
 beginning ballerina, a versed virtuoso, or competent cavalier. When 
 practicing "a la barre" you want to worry about your technique, not
 whether the bar can handle the pressure. We present to you the Better Barre -
 a bar designed for the better balleter, crafted to help perfect your 
 positions."

Job Level       : Level 6 - Intrepretive Dancer (Dance)
Increase Skill  : None
Increase Motive : Fun - 1
Bonus           : Interest in Music & Dance

Again, not a very useful reward at all. All this does is allow your Sim to
practice ballet with the bar, a much better item to practice with over your
generic bar from the buy catalog. I'll admit that I don't bother using this
but if you want your Sims to perfect their ballet, this item is for you. Did
I mention that this allows you to gain some interest in Music and Dance? Yes,
I'm pretty sure I did. Use it, but don't be surprised that it is not 
interesting.

This little machine is used solely for spying and its many devious task. You
can only use this to spy on others, and by doing so, you make pick up some
interesting chatter or noises, and this can lead to some good rewards, or 
some poor returns. Anyway, there are a list of what can happen, and here they
are.

 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

There is one that I haven't mentioned. When you spy, sometimes, your 
neighbours might come over and demand some privacy. When this happens, a Sim
living close to your Sim will come over and shove you. Of course, when you
hear your neighbours demanding their privacy, occupy yourself with something
and cancel the action, because this will lead to a drop in relationship. 
Still, this is a pretty cool reward.

[10.01] Lifetime Aspiration Points

There is a new feature called the Lifetime Aspiration Meter. The basic 
workings of the system is that as your Sim progresses throughout their life,
they will experiment some big events. Some events such as an engagement, a 
marriage, having a child or reaching the top of their career paths will edge
them closer to achieving their lifetime aspiration. Even when they reach it,
there will be another lifetime aspiration to reach, and that will have its 
own goals associated with it. For example, once you have become that Hall of
Famer, you will get a new want to become the new Mayor of SimCity, and as
such, you may get a boost in the Lifetime Aspiration Meter if you max out 
Charisma. And don't think that this is all done by yourself, events such as
being taught as a child to walk, or being taught to speak, you, even as a 
child can gain Aspiration points. Please note that children cannot spend the
points, only when they actually have a set aspiration can they spend the 
points.

Besides achieving the big events, you will get points for maintaining your
aspiration meter at a high level, which is done by completing your needs on a
daily basis. The higher the meter is, the more points that your Sim will gain
in the end. Therefore, it would be beneficial for your Sims to have high 
aspiration meters, rather than to laugh at their desperation actions.

Initially, you will have 5 points to spend, but your meter has a maximum of
16 points that you can use. There are also 4 sets that you can spend your
points on, each with 4 options, the more valuable ones being at the very end
of the column, or in this case, the top. There are columns for your Needs, 
Career, Primary Aspiration and Secondary Aspiration. Please note that the 
final benefit for every aspiration would not be available if it is accessed
via a secondary aspiration. For example, you cannot access the Financial 
benefit of Investing while your primary aspiration is Knowledge. Also, the
Primary Aspiration is the aspiration of your Sim, you cannot directly change
it nor choose it.

Should you choose to use the ReNuYu Orb, the Lifetime Aspiration Rewards
will be reset again, so if you make the change, be wary to reprogram your
little dudes because they will be missing their little boosts. This is done
because your aspirations may change and that will wreak some havoc. But if
you want to, you can use the Orb to reset your rewards anyway, so either way,
if you want to reset the rewards, go ahead, use the orb. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[10.02] Career Benefits

Benefit #1 - Life of Luxury

"No matter how career-oriented a Sim may be, vacation days keep their morale
 up and head. Your employers value you so much that they let you build
 vacation days much faster than your colleagues."

I personally believe that vacation days are quite unnecessary because you 
could just call in sick if you miss the carpool or didn't get to your car in
time. Vacation days are only good if you have worked hard and don't really 
want to work for a week or so. However, the benefits that lie ahead are far
more appealing than this one, and as such, this is a stepping stone for
what lies ahead. The only good thing about the vacation day over the sick day
is that you get paid for it. What company will pay money to their employees
to not turn up? Cause I wanna join.

Benefit #2 - Business Instinct

"While some Sims may try to wrigh the pros and cons of every decision, the
 profits often go to whoever makes the right choice the fastest. You always
 go with your gut, and your career chance card choices are right eighty 
 percent of the time, every time."

This one is actually decent because chance cards can really pay off. While
at the lower end of the career ladder, they can help build your skills up
good, and at the other end of the ladder, they can really pay off the big
Simoleons. At the other end, you are looking onwards of 40k, and since you
have a 80% chance of being right, the odds are looking good for a big 
bonus.

Benefit #3 - Friends in High Places

"When you're buddies with an executive, you get promoted even though nobody
 else likes you! Your friend requirement for any promotion in any career is
 reduced by one."

This is useful to some degree, moreso at the other end of the career ladder,
where you need a large amount of friends and that can mean a lot of 
maintenance. Therefore, reducing the amount of friends that you need can be
relatively helpful, but at the other end of the scale, you can have some more
valuable time to build up your skills, rather than making friends. Also, with
one less friend, that is one less relationship that you have to maintain, and
if you have 15 friends, maintenance can be a bit of a problem. 

Benefit #4 - Plead for Job

"A true go-getter doesn't let a little thing like getting fired stand in the
 way of their career! This interaction, available on all phones for 24 hours
 after being fired, allows you to appeal to your boss for one last chance.

 (This benefit only applies to standard careers, not to Sim-owned businesses)

A decent benefit that has some good qualities to it. F?irst of all, being 
fired can be the result of a dud chance card, and think of this as insurance
against that 20% going against you. Other than that, it isn't too easy to get
fired. As such, the plead for job is useful, in an emergency. Of course, 
there is a success rate of the odds whether your boss will take you back or
not, and that will depend on your job performance meter. If it is poor, then
your odds of success is quite low, while on the otherhand, if it is full, then
things will look up. And the final statement applies to Open for Business 
users, as the Employee cannot plead for job.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[10.03] Needs Benefits

Benefit #1 - Slower Need Decay - Social and Comfort

"Sitting in a coffee shop with a friend is a great way to unwind, but you've
 learned there are times when a responsible Sim has to ignore their desire
 for social interaction and comfort."

This first one is a pretty good benefit. Social decay can drain pretty fast
and it one of the most annoying to keep at a high level. Comfort is quite
easy to refill, but quick to drain. Besides, any slowing in decay must be a 
good thing, right? Social is a pain for people with no friends, so any slowing
of the decay is great. 

Benefit #2 - Slower Need Decay - Bladder and Hygiene

"For some vain Sims, personal hygiene can take up hours per day. You, however,
 exhibit the effortless perfection that only the truly self-confident can 
 pull off."

Another slower decay, but even more useful than the other. Bladder is the 
fastest to decay, and hygiene is a close second, and most activities will drop
those two like flies meeting fly spray. Therefore, any drop may help you make
a little more Simoleon, for the same some of bathroom time. With slower decay,
you can keep your mood up for work.

Benefit #3 - Slower Need Decay - Fun and Hunger

"Like most Sims, you love slacking off with a bag of chips in front of the TV.
 However, you're mature enough to know you need to take care of all your
 responsibilities before giving in to such temptation."

Well, the slower hunger decay is a good thing, because it does take time to
cook a decent meal, and a bit more time to actually eat the meal. Its all 
about efficiency. Anyway, the fun decay is decent, but isn't the best thing
in the world. Fun actually does decay however, faster when you are building
your skills, so it is quite handy, at times. So with this, you Sims will get
less bored by reading a boring book. Not bad at all.

Benefit #4 - Slower Need Decay - Energy

"When those around you seem to brag through life like as groggy zombies,
 it's easy for someone as happy and healthy as you to feel energised all
 through the day."

This is a great incentive to increase the Needs benefits. Why? Because energy
is something that takes a long time to refill, even the fastest bed will take
at least 4 hours to refill a depleted meter. Therefore, any slowing of the
energy decay will make that 4 hours last even longer, which is a good thing,
after all, any need decay that is slowed will make any refilling interaction
worth more and last much longer, which in turn, is a good thing, believe it
or not. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[10.04] Popularity Benefits

Benefit #1 - Hospitality

"Being the outgoing and gregarious Sim that you are, you're always quick to 
 invite a new friend into your home. You are more likely to bring home a 
 friend from work or school."

This is a good benefit if you are seeking to make friends. You will get a 
nice boost to your relationship meter if you bring them home, to the tune of
25 daily relationship and 10 lifetime relationship, and this gives you a 
nice stepping stone to becoming a good friend. A great first step to the
world of being popular.

Benefit #2 - Slower Need Decay - Bladder and Energy

"A true party Sim knows that going to the bathroom or falling alseep is the
 surest way to miss a party's best moment. You avoid the heedless call of 
 nature and you think sleeping is best left to babies and cats."

This one starts off with a nice touch. The Bladder bar will have a slower 
decay, and since they have the fastest decay rate, this would be helpful 
somewhat in containing the amount of times you need to go to the toilet, even
though your Sims don't drink any wayer at all. The Energy bar has the slowest
decay, but a large refill time, and as such, you are getting more bang for 
your buck.

Benefit #3 - 3-Way Calling

"While a standard conservation may be enough stimulation for a normal Sim, the
 true social butterfly prefers a conference call. During a phone conservation
 with another Sim, you can use the phone to call a third Sim, and build 
 relationship with both."

If you use the phone to maintain relationships, or to drag up a low social 
bar, this is the benefit for you. While you are talking to one person, you
can use this benefit to call another person and build relationships with both
of them. This way, when you make one friend via the phone, this benefit will
effectively double the amount of friends you make in the end. Also, it will
end up with the other two Sims being friendly with each other. The problem is
that you end up having a massive phone bill.

Benefit #4 - Fast Friends

"A truly open-minded socialite, you value friendship with any and all Sims who
 cross your path. Your positive relationship gains with other Sims are always
 larger than those of Sims without this benefit."

Again, this is another benefit that helps you make more friends. This 
basically means that any positive interaction, or successful interaction, will
net your more relationship points than usual. The extra amount you gain will
depend on the amount usually gain from a successful interaction. Only 
successful interactions are multiplied, unsuccessful interactions will not
result in more points being lost.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[10.05] Romance Benefits

Benefit #1 - Massive Attraction

"If there's one thing you know how to do, it's strike up a conservation with a
 hot stranger. Using a combination of psychology, wit, and sheer animal
 magnetism, you create a large boost in chemistry with any Sim you meet."

This benefit basically increases the chemistry with every Sim you meet, 
allowing you to edge closer to that elusive 3 Bolt chemistry mark. While this
may make a fast track to a romantic relationship, you really don't want 
estranged, angry, ex-lovers coming after you, slapping you for an affair 
because more chemistry relationed actions are related ones. And the Chemistry
is only for those your Sims are actually attracted to, so heterosexual Sims
will not gain more Chemistry with Sims of the same gender, and vice versa.

Benefit #2 - Slower Need Decay - Hygiene and Energy

"The hallmark of a true romance Sim is their ability to not only stay up
 all night, but to look and smell great for the duration. You can spend less
 time on sleep and hygiene, which frees you up for ... other pursuits."

The hygiene benefit is not that useful, after all, if you are going to go to
the toilet, might as well take a bath while you're at it. Again, anything
that will slow the rate energy slows down is good since energy takes a long
time to recharge, and coffee can only get you so far without making you run
to the toilet.

Benefit #3 - Local Legend

"There comes a time in every Casanova's life when their reputation begins to
 precede them. Word of your romantic prowess has spread through town, and
 neighbours of your preferred gender are more likely to be found
 "coincidentally" strolling past your house."

Well, if you are really desperate for a partner, or a new lover, then this is 
the one for you. The gender that you prefer is quite simple to determine. If
you are a romance Sim, you can easily look at your wants panel and see who
you want to flirt with. Well, once you have this, do a count on which gender
runs past the fastest. Useful if you are desperate, not useful if you are not.
And besides, how many Sims can accidently walk past your house hoping for a 
long night?

Benefit #4 - Smooth Talk

"Every romance Sim worth their salt knows the second most important thing to
 getting a lover is keeping them. The Smooth Talk interaction is useful not
 only to build relationship quickly with a potential romantic interest, but
 it also smooths things over with a Sim who is furious with you."

This is useful for romance Sims as you are going to have furious Sims who
have caught you in the act. With this new interaction, you are able to stop
the furious meter, and this will allow you to resume normal interaction with
that Sim, and the relationship is restored. This can also increase your
relationship with other friends by boosting your score, despite not being
in the furious state.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[10.06] Fortune Benefits

Benefit #1 - Skilled Negotiator

"Fortune-minded Sims are naturals at the fine art of haggling, and what
 negotiations could be more important than the one of your salary? Your
 ruthless nature nets you a hefty bump in salary compared to other Sims."

This is a good boost in the Simoleons that you will bring home. This is 
basically an increase in the amount you bring home after you return from work.
Although this is not witnessed from your job panel, if you read the remark of
"Welcome Home ____" the amount that you bring back can be up to 25% of your
normal salary. Useful if you are desperate for the extra cash to pay the 
bills off.

Benefit #2 - Slower Need Decay - Fun and Comfort

"If there's a place you should never find an aspiring millionaire, it's on the
 couch watching TV. While other Sims slack off, you're willing to shortchange
 fun and comfort in favour of that next big check."

This is one of the most useless of the benefits since both bars are relatively
easy to fill up by sitting down watching TV. Any since FreeTime has some 
decent things to do with the television, this is pretty useless. But the 
benefits down the chain are not. And besides, they both drop pretty fast, but
the Needs Rewards already cover it, so it is rather moot. 

Benefit #3 - Financial Advice for Cash

"When people get the idea that you're an expert at something, it's a very
 simple matter to sucker them into giving you some of their money. The Giv
 Financial Advice interaction, available on any computer, allows you to make
 money every hour from the comfort of your office."

Make money from the computer. Although it does make some money, it will depend
on your overall skill level. If you have pretty weak skills overall, you will
average about 75 Simoleons in an hour or so, 200 Simoleons at the end of the
scale. While this may make some money, you are probably better off drawing
paintings or selling items make from the pottery wheel. In the end, it is good
for a quick buck, but for a job, this isn't exactly the best way to go.

Benefit #4 - Investing

"For a smart Sim with good instincts, playing the stock market can seem like 
 making money out of thin air. Each afternoon, you'll have a chance to gain or
 lose some of your family funds. If other members of your household have this
 benefit, your chances of making a profit are increased."

This is quite a useful benefit because you actually are making money without
doing anything. Every afternoon, at 4pm, you will have the chance of making
or losing money, the amount you gain or lose will depend on your family
funds, the more you have, the more you stand to win or lose. Also, the amount
of people with this benefit in your household will have an effect, but hey, 
it is literally free money. And who doesn't want that? Again, it will not be
a truckload of money, but some money is better than none. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[10.07] Knowledge Benefits

Benefit #1 - Slower Need Decay - Social and Fun

"While other Sims spend their time at parties and on dates, you've got your
 priorities in order for a lifetime of learning. You still like to watch TV
 or talk on the phone from time to time, but not as often as other Sims."

This is semi useful, since Social is quite a pain to refill and quick to
decay, but since Fun will drop while you are reading books, this is useful
for those who will want to gain skills. But you can gain skills, albeit 
limited, from the television, so maybe social is the only thing that should
be used here.

Benefit #2 - Impart Knowledge

"You've spent so much of your life with your nose in a book that you can
 practically substitute for one. This interaction, under the Talk ... menu,
 lets you offer to teach another Sim a skill you know well. Sims can also use
 the Ask ... menu to request that you give them a lesson."

Well, this is basically like teaching a Sim skills from a career reward. You
can only impart knowledge in a field as long as your skill level is higher
than that of the Sim you wish to teach, rather than being equal or below their
skill level, otherwise, they'd be teaching you. Useful in some fields, such as
Cleaning, but less useful in others, such as cooking. It is actually faster
than a book, so it isn't such a bad idea to learn from a sensei. So, little
up little grasshopper...

Benefit #3 - Eureka!

"There are left-brained Sims, and there are right-brained Sims, and then 
 there's you. By thinking with both hemispheres of your brain, you experience
 moments of clarity that make your learning rate much faster than those other
 half-brained types."

This is exceptionally helpful for building skills, since your learning rate is
much increased. Useful if you want the job promotion the very next day after
you have been promoted today. For anybody who wants a quick skill boost, this
is the way to go. And when you are at the top, you can teach your skills to 
those not as talented as you, so not bad at all. Too bad you can't run a 
tutoring school, otherwise, you'd be making some serious money.

Benefit #4 - Summon Aliens

"What knowledge could be more tantalizing than that of life on another planet?
 This interaction, available on all telescopes, allows you to attempt to 
 hitch a ride on any flying saucers that happen to be passing by."

Well, if you want a quick fix to the abducted by aliens want, here it is. This
is only useful if you want an alien baby, or to furfil that want, but other
than that, it is not as useful as it could be. After all, you only want to 
be abducted some many times.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[10.08] Pleasure Seeker Benefits

Benefit #1 - Fast Metabolism

"With all the dining out you do, it'd be easy to let your physique fall into
 disrepair. Lucky for you, you've got those enviable genes that let you keep
 in tip-top shape with just an occasional workout. You burn off fat much
 faster than normal Sims."

This is quite an interesting benefit, one I benefit myself. Anyway, this one
is where you can exercise to burn off fat. That is, move from the fat shape
to the fit shape by exercising. With this benefit, your exercise will shed
more fat than those who do it the hard way. Not too bad if you actually eat
a lot, but if you don't indulge in those 15 course meals, it isn't all that
useful.

Benefit #2 - Slower Need Decay - Bladder and Energy

"The keep up a lifestyle of constant partying and late nights on the town,
 self disclipine is key. You've mastered the brutal art of the mid-week 
 all-nighter, and your neighbour's brother's friend's cousin claims he
 once saw you stand in line for a club's bathroom for six hours without
 even breaking a sweat."

This is a better benefit, as both are quite useful. Bladder has a very
quick decay and energy a slow one, but making them even slower is better
since it will mean you don't need to go to the toilet as often as well as
going to bed later and waking earlier. Not too bad, you can go for an extra
game of pool in the time and knock down more mixed drinks that anyone else.
Remember kids, don't binge drink, it isn't good for you, or your liver, or
your wallet.

Benefit #3 - Write Restaurant Guide

"After spending thousands and thousands of Simoleons on dinner and drinks
 over the years, you've come up with a plan to recoup some of your costs. 
 This interaction, available on any ocmputer, lets you turn your food
 enthusiasm and cooking skill into guides that can be sold to a publisher."

This is one available on the computer which allows you to basically, write
a novel with the difference of one being fiction and the other being about
food. With the Restaurant Guide, you basically rely on your cooking skill
level to make some money. The higher the skill, the higher you chances of
success are. And might I mention that this will increase you interest in the
hobby of Cuisine. This is a great way to make some money, but the time to
make a book compared to how much some jobs pay, it is only worthwhile in
your Sim's spare time, not as a full time job. After all, I only FAQ in my
spare time, not a job.

Benefit #4 - Rowdy Folk Song

"Between all late-night party animals there seems to be a shared knowledge 
 of a song that won't be found in any book or jukebox. You have no memory
 of how you learned it, but it's a great way to build relationships with a 
 large group of revelers."

This one is an interesting one because the folk song can help you increase
your social and your fun as well as building the relationships with the other
Sims that you are singing with. Interesting, but not the best way to make
some friends. Still, it is a mass social interaction since everyone will be
forced to join in, less they get kicked out of the massive group that you are
now leading.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[10.09] Family Benefits

Benefit #1 - Grandpa's Comfort Soup

"A family recipe passed down through generations, this savoury soup increase
 the comfort of any Sim who eats it. It also cures the Sim of any sickness
 they may have."

This is a great benefit to start things off. This soup, which you can cook 
with no cooking skill requirements, will refill the hunger bar because it is
still food, and the comfort bar because it is a comfort soup. And the fact
that is can cure sickness is interesting because it is much better than 
sleeping or resting for 14 hours. 1 soup v 14 hours, I'd pick the soup. One
of the most useful skills, and if you have OfB, you can sell this for some
money.

Benefit #2 - Slower Need Decay - Fun and Comfort

"Any good parent knows they need to put the needs of their family before
 their own. To ensure that your family gets the most fun and comfort you can
 provide, you're willing to forego some in your own life."

This is one of the most useless of the benefits since both bars are relatively
easy to fill up by sitting down watching TV. Any since FreeTime has some 
decent things to do with the television, this is pretty useless. But the 
benefits down the chain are not.

Benefit #3 - Plead With the Social Worker

"Every parent makes mistakes, but it is possible to get a second chance at 
 raising your kids. If the social worker comes to collect your kids as a 
 result of poor parenting, you'll have a chance to please your case with her.
 The higher relationship you have with your kids, the more likely she is to
 hold off on taking them away."

To get the social worker in the first place, you will seriously have to
neglect the needs of your child, which is not that easy to do. It is useful
if you have made a single mistake, like going to work and not feeding it,
and the social worker comes along, you may get a second chance. It all 
depends on your relationship, and a roll of the dice. Seriously, you must be
a bad parent if you end up with this.

Benefit #4 - Super Fertility

"What could be more adorable than a new bundle of joy in the family? A
 matched set! You or your partner have a greatly increased chance of giving
 birth to twins when becoming pregnent."

Well, this is useful, but think about it, twins means a lot more work than a
single child. Twins will make your life a pain because you need to look after
two sets of needs to ward off the social worker. Sure, it will increase your
Aspiration points, but can you protect them from the social worker? Sounds
like a good idea for a new movie. Anyway, for those with Open for Business,
you don't need this, you already have the Cheesecake for this. And on a more
serious note, having twins is more a luck of the draw rather than your super
dooper fertility. Fertility has nothing to do with twins except that it is 
needed for conception. After conception, fertility has nothing to do with
anything and twins occur after conception. Wiki Twins for more info. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[10.10] Grilled Cheese Benefits

Benefit #1 - Bottomless Stomach

"The cheeseatarian lifestyle is currently not endorsed by any of the medical
 or nutritional advisory boards, and it's not hard to see why. However, for 
 someone who two major food groups are cheese and buttery bread, you manage
 to keep your figure remarkably trim. You gain fatness points from foods 
 much slower than normal sims. "

This basically means, if you eat more food, or excess food when your hunger
bar is already filled, you will get fatter, and this benefit will make that
the excess food will make you fatter slower. Useful to a point, but then 
again, this is the grilled cheese aspiration, and food is the key. This 
applies to all food, not just Grilled Cheese Sandwiches. What kind of 
bottomless stomach only accepts grilled cheese?

Benefit #2 - Slower Need Decay - Bladder

"You seem to spend every waking hour putting grilled cheese into your face.
 Where does it all go? Actually don't answer that. You seem to have a giant
 bladder, or just a special talent at ignoring the call of nature."

Well, this is one of the better need decay benefits since it is devoted just
to bladder. This means that you need to go to the toilet less often, and 
that is obviously a good thing since it is the quickly one to drop and is
often dropping at double the rate of other motives, and any stop to it would
be appreciated. Now, you can drink more high quality nectars, but don't do
the booze, it isn't good for your health.

Benefit #3 - Paint Grilled Cheese

"A little-known and possibly true fact is that the first cave paintings 
 ever discovered depicted ancient Sims making and eating grilled cheese
 sandwiches. Turophiles throughout the ages have upheld this glorious
 tradition with such masterworks as The Gouda Lisa and The Swiss-tine
 Chapel. You can create your own foray into the genre by using any
 easel."

Well, do you really want to paint a portrait of a grilled cheese sandwich?
You can do so, and make some money out of it provided that you have some
creativity points to make a decent job out of it. Place it on your wall
and let it be a reminder to the almighty Grilled Cheese. Apparently, they
sell for more than your normal paintings. Still, it is rather funny to
witness.

Benefit #4 - Conjure Grilled Cheese

"Using a secret technique handed down through the ages, you are able to
 focus the mysteriously cheesy energies of the Milky Way and manifest
 them as a perfectly toasted sandwich. This self interaction will create a
 snack to fill your belly, but all that magical concentration tends to be
 draining when it comes to comfort and energy."

This is desperation at the very least. Only when you are really in need
for food should you do this because it really does put a strain on your
comfort and energy and those take time to refill, while energy can be 
easily fixed up. Therefore, this is the extreme of the extreme, and only
use it if you are either bored, or need food. Still, I must know how they do
that, I mean, how can you make a Grilled Cheese Sandwich out of thing air. 
You'd need like bread, cheese and a toaster. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[10.11] Secondary Aspirations

Benefit #1 - Choose a Secondary Aspiration

"Not every Sim is satisfied to spend their life in pursuit of a single goal.
 By choosing a secondary aspiration, you can unlock some of that aspiration's
 benefits. You will also begin to receive wants that were previously 
 restricted to Sims of that aspiration."

This is a handy benefit. This allows you to access the first three benefits
of any other aspiration that is not delegated as your Primary Aspiration.
Although you can't access the best of the best, you can get some pretty nifty
benefits as well as your original benefits that are gained from your primary
aspiration. Pretty cool eh?

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[11.01] The Genie

The Genie is basically found in a lamp that will be given to you randomly
by a gypsy. You will only get another one in another 14 days so you must
use the lamp wisely, or you might waste an opportunity. How does the gypsy
give it to you. Well, I myself am not exactly sure, but the chances of the
gypsy giving you the lamp increase based on the amounts of Sims on the lot.
The higher chances come with higher Lifetime Aspiration points. The more you
have accumulated, the more likely the gypsy will give you the lamp. Well,
you need to have a lot of people, and the lamp isn't exactly life changing,
but it is useful, and shiny.

Dusty Old Lamp - Cannot be Sold
"The Lamp has inexplicably been present at many important historical events,
 from ancient wars of conquest to last weekend's swap meet at the community
 centre. Many are the Sims who would commit desperate acts to attain this
 treasure, but now its power has come to rest with you. From within its
 spout, a soft purple glow emanates invitingly ..."

Well, the cannot be sold statement is not really accurate. When you first
get the lamp from the gypsy, who sneaks up to your house, you have the option
to sell it for 1000 Simoleons. You can get 29000 Simoleons more than that
with three wishes for Wealth.

Well, there are 6 different things that you can wish for once you have summon
the genie out of his bottle, or rather, lamp. You can wish for Wealth, Piece
of Mind, Cheat Death, Long Life, Beauty and Resurrection. Unlike an aspiration
item, you don't need to have a high aspiration level to use it. Each wish as 
its own result.

Wealth        - When you wish for wealth, your nice little genie will deliver
                you a sack of Simoleons to the tune of §10,000. Wow, that is
                a lot of money. There is a nasty side effect to this in that
                this wish will increase the odds of a burglar visiting your
                house for the next few days.

Piece of Mind - By choosing Piece of Mind, this will have no side effects,
                but will allow you to have a platinum aspiration level for
                the rest of the Sim's life. This is not available of your
                Sim already has permanent Platinum.

Cheat Death   - This allows the Sim who has wished for Cheating Death to 
                allow themself to plead for their own life, and at first, this
                will be successful. However, after each successful plead with
                Mr. Reaper, the success rate is decreased 10%. Note by 
                pleading death while dying of old age, you will only prolong
                the Sim's life for another day.

Long Life     - Like the Elixir of Life, this will prolong the life of the
                Sim by another 3 days. No side effects here.

Beauty        - This will increase the chemistry between your Sim and another
                Sim of their perferred gender to the maximum level of 3 bolts.
                This will last for a total of 4 days and this will also 
                increase the amount of walker past your house, their gender
                the perferred gender of your Sim who has wished for Beauty.
                And this will also remove any sunburn if you have Seasons.

Resurrection  - This will allow the genie to resurrect a dead Sim in the
                neighbourhood, provided that the tombstone or the urn is still
                somewhere in the neighbourhood. However, this will have a 
                chance that the resurrected Sim will be a zombie. For those
                without University, this is the only way to obtain a zombie
                without that expansion pack. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[12.01] Overview

Bug Catching is an activity that will get you in tune with nature. This is 
done by clicking on a bit of grass and selecting the Hunt Bugs option. There
are three types of bugs, Beetles, Butterflies and Spiders. The Beetles are
the easiest to catch, then the Butterflies and then the Spiders. All bar one
is easy to catch. More on that later. 

When you collect your first bug, you will receive a bug box, straight into 
your inventory, and this will hold all the bugs that you have caught and 
will catch in the future. This little box, as you build up your collection,
will increase your enthusiasm in Nature itself. 

Your enthusiasm in nature will play a role in bug collecting. Originally,
you can only collect beetles, and on rare occasions, you can catch a 
butterfly or two. One you reach Level 5, you can obtain spiders for your
collection although they are somewhat rarer. The butterflies will now be 
more common that before. Once you reach Level 8, you can collect all the
bugs, but they take time, especially the Socialus butterfly. I will admit
right now, you can use the BoolProp to collect all the bugs, and I gave up
on catching that damn Socialus Butterfly because it took forever. Anyway,
your bug collection will look like this.

 ____'s Bug Collection
 This bug box is designed to keep all of the bugs that you have collected 
 safe and dry. Made by hand from a master craftsman from Twikkii Island you
 can rest assured that no bugs will ever be getting back out of this box
 once they get in.

Anyway, I'll go through all 30 bugs that you can catch, 10 on each, and
the location of each in the bug box. You will have to bear with the poor 
hand-drawn ASCII art. 

While you are collecting bugs, your hygiene will start to drop. Also, you will
sooner or later encounter some bees that will chase you and this will drop
your fun and comfort. However, as you gain more enthusiasm in nature, which
they activity will no doubt do, you will gain fun. All other motives will
decay as usual.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[12.02] Beetles

The hard insect that makes a rather large crunch when you step on it. There
are 10 of them, each with their colours ahead, and their positions on the 
bug box.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[12.03] Butterflies

The move from a caterpillar into a beautiful butterfly. Anyway, there are also
10 of these as well, and are relatively easy to catch, except for the Socialus
butterfly, which is annoying as hell.

 ----------------------------------------- 

1  - The Jelly Butterfly - Looking nothing like jelly, this butterfly is a 
     colour of red and purple with 4 yellow dots.

2  - The Peanut Butterfly - Looking nothing like a peanut, this butterfly
     is a fusion of red and orange with 6 yellow dots.

3  - The Empress Butterfly - Not even the shape of a crown, this like a fusion
     of orange and purple with many yellow speckles.

4  - The Blue Featherwing Butterfly - Not normal blue, it is light blue and is
     extremely shiny too look at. Shame real butterflys don't look like this.

5  - The Margarina Butterfly - A heavily black butterfly with white and green
     shades.

6  - The Mademe Butterfly - A three stripe butterfly, two in the shade of 
     hot pink and a shiny white stripe in the middle. 

7  - The Vampire Butterfly - Looking nothing like blood, this is a purple 
     butterfly with a really shiny coat and 4 white dots.

8  - The Pygmalion Butterfly - A transfusion of pink and white, this butterfly
     is surround with white specks.

9  - The Copper Pot Butterfly - Not a shade of copper, but a shade of yellow
     with a heavy black outline.

10 - The Socialus Butterfly - A mix of green and white, speckled with yellow
     dots and many waves. The most annoying bug to catch.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[12.04] Spiders

Spiders, the most deadly out of the three bugs, and you don't get bitten. Same
deal here, you have 10 of these to collect, and they ain't pretty. But the
names are interesting though, and politically correct.

 ----------------------------------------- 
|                                         |

|                                         |
 ----------------------------------------- 

1  - The Striped Spindler Spider - A spider with a metallic grey body and
     yellow and red striped legs which are rather thin.

2  - The Grey Widow Spider - A play on the Black Widow, this spider has 
     thin legs and is complete grey.

3  - The Paratrooper Spider - Looking nothing like a soldier, this spider
     has short stubby brown legs and a shiny black body.

4  - The Mock Spider - Looks more like a pondskater, it has a small grey
     body and violet longs, which are paper thin.

5  - The Itsius Bitsius Spider - A play on Itsy Bitsy spider, it has a white
     body and thin black legs.

6  - The Hot Dog Spider - Something not tasty, this spider has a red top
     body and a green bottom body, complete with orange legs. 

7  - The Queen Charlotte Spider - A stranger looking spider, it has a small
     black body and purple legs, also paper thin.

     fattest of the spiders with an orange body complete with black spots.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[13.01] Talentless Hack

Well, you really can't be that talentless. Anyway, to sart to do some pottery,
you need to have a pottery wheel to actually spin the clay on. This can be
found in the Misc section under the Hobbies bar. That is all that you actually
need to purchase, you actually don't need a chair, which will be pretty
uncomfortable, which in turn leads to a drop in Comfort and Hygiene.

To increase in talent badges, you need to do what happened in Open for 
Business and Seasons, you need to do the same thing over and over again. This
is repetitive and it appears that the ones from FreeTime take longer than 
their counterparts in Seasons and Open for Business. Having a higher talent
badge will increase your production speed of previous level items as well as
decreasing the failure rate of the products.

Anyway, the only item that you can currently make is a Perfectly Small Plate.

"Small, flat and versatile, this homemade plate is a great accessory to any
 room. Just place it wherever decor is needed and - voila! - instant beauty.
 (For decorative use only! TundraClay is not liable for comestible use of
 creations made from TundraClay.)"

This is available in a variety of 6 different colours. It will cost you about
§30 to make one plate. You will be able to sell it, if you make it perfectly,
for §40 whilst one that is a failure will one be able to be sold at §20.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[13.02] Bronze Badge

Once you get to the bronze stage after making hundreds and thousands of 
plates, you will be able to make two more different items, a Tiny Tea Set or
a Simple Vase.

Simple Vase
"Simple and small, this vase is place-able almost anywhere. Also great for 
 gift-giving. (For decorative use only! TundraClay is not liable for 
 comestible use of creations made from TundraClay.)"

Tiny Tea Set
"This beautiful tiny tea set looks perfect in any room. Display your unique
 creations for all to see. (For decorative use only! TundraClay is not liable
 for comestible use of creations made from TundraClay.)"

Both of these items will have a variety of 6 different colours to actually
choose from. The Vase will cost you §35 to manufacture and will sell for the
low price of §55. If it is a dud vase, it will only sell for §28. The Tiny
Tea Set will cost you §42 to produce, it will sell at §70 and if you stuff it
up, you can sell the failure for §35.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[13.03] Silver Badge

The Silver Badge shall unlock some more items that you can make, despite the
fact that you don't need to bake the pottery first. Anyway, you can now make
a Handmade Clay Pot and a Simsonian Clay Pitcher.

Handmade Clay Pot
"This clay pot is hand constructed from the finest clay imported from beneath
 the frigid northern tundra. The clay is transported across the ocean and 
 flash-thawed for decorative use. (For decorative use only! TundraClay is not
 liable for comestible use of creations made from TundraClay.)"

Simsonian Clay Pitcher

"Elegantly crafted from clay and ready for display in your home, this pitcher
 is the picture of perfection. (For decorative use only! TundraClay is not 
 liable for comestible use of creations made from TundraClay.)"

These items will have 6 different colours as well, just like the Plate, the
Tea Set and the Vase. The Clay Pot will cost you §40 to actually make and
can be sold for §100 if it is perfect, whilst it will only sell for §50. 
Still, unlike the other craftables, it will cover the cost of production. 
The Pitcher will cost you §48 to make and will sell for §120, whilst a crap
failure will only sell §60. Again, it covers the cost of production.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[13.04] Gold Badge

The coveted Gold Badge is the last that you can get for Pottery. This is only
one item that you can unlock at this level, the Ginormous Jug.

"Originally used for storing grain and other comestibles, this large piece
 of pottery is now relegated for home decor. (For decorative use only! 
 TundraClay is not liable for comestible use of creations made from 
 TundraClay.)"

Also available in a large range of pretty, senseless colours, this will cost
you only §60 to actually make. Of course, this will have a high selling price
of §300 and even if you fail, you will still make a good profit of §150 as the
selling price. Thats the price of 2 and a half clay rocks.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[14.01] Talentless Hack

Sewing is not too different from Pottery since you still need a Sewing Machine
to actually sew stuff as well as a chair to sit down on. You pretty much need
to have a chair to do sewing, less you sew you own hand, which I have seen
happen, and it isn't pretty. Anyway, while you are busy avoiding needles 
entering your fingers, you can only create the Basic Potholder.

"A beginner's sewing project done to perfection! A bit thin to actually hold
 pots, but certainly beautiful enough to sit on the wall."

You only have a limiting three colours to choose from, so it isn't hard to
make a choice. It will cost an almighty §40 to make and you can only make a
measly selling price of §50, with a failure price half of that. Not exactly
the way to make money, but its a start. Well with sewing machines, you can
start family operated sweatshops. Too bad there is no one to investigate this.

To increase in talent badges, you need to do what happened in Open for 
Business and Seasons, you need to do the same thing over and over again. This
is repetitive and it appears that the ones from FreeTime take longer than 
their counterparts in Seasons and Open for Business. Having a higher talent
badge will increase your production speed of previous level items as well as
decreasing the failure rate of the products.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[14.02] Bronze Badge

The jump from talentless hack to Bronze Medalist at the Games will increase
what you can make by 3 items. Certainly beyond the level of hopelessness.
Anyway, you can make a nice Teddy Bear, some Curtains and some Wide Curtains.

Shiny Sewn Curtains
"An example of a solid pattern and good execution, these shiny and durable
 curtains will frame your windows for years."

Little Bear Boo
"What a cute little bear! Your sewing has improved and it shows wit thit
 well put together and cuddly toy."

Well, there are only available in again, a limiting three colours. The nice
little BoBo will cost you §56 in materials and will sell for a tidy sum of
two pizzas, §80. The Smaller Curtains will cost you §180 to make and will
sell for §300, not bad at all. The Wide Curtains will cost you §225 to make
and will sell for §375, the mL amount of a can of Coke. If you stuff up, the
sell price will be half the maximum selling cost. If it is a half, it will be
rounded up. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[14.03] Silver Badge

The Silver Badge will unlock two new items that you can sew, and by now, you
would have stopped sewing your fingers. You can now sew a lovely quilt and 
an outfit that your Sims can actually wear. Wow, I didn't know that fabric 
on the machine was cotton, nylon, polyester all in one.

Quality Quilt
"Your long hours of sewing and dedication to the art of the quilt have paid
 off. The quilt is well-made and good-looking. Take a bow; your stoic
 stitching has brought you here."

The Quality Quilt is a quality quilt available in three different colours.
This Quilt will actually start to make some money. Even as it might cost a
hefty §450 to get the fabric to make one, it will sell for double that price,
a nice §900 Simoleons. And besides, it does look good on the walls.

The Outfit however, is a different story. These outfits are basically you
making an outfit from the game and using that to sell, or to wear. You will
have the outfit choices of Everyday, Swimwear, Gym Clothes, Formal, Undies
and PJs. Each of them will cost you §120 to make and will sell for the
price of §400. I wonder how the clothing stores can sell so cheaply. Anyway,
if you want to keep it, you can place in into your wardrobe by removing it
from your inventory and adding it.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[14.04] Gold Badge

The Gold Badge is the best of the best, and with this option of making a 
custom outfit, it can be described as the best. The Custom Outfits is you
basically making your own outfit, for any age group, sex and what you want
to type of clothing to be. So basically, this is a way for your to make your
own custom clothing and designs.

You basically have to design the clothes yourself. This is done by choosing
and selecting the colours and options for your clothes that you want. You
can make them for every age group, male or female. It will cost you §75 to 
make a single custom outfit, and for your trouble, the selling price will
be tenfold your producting costs, it will sell for a decent §750. A 1000%
markup, not bad. I guess this is how the big clothing companies makes money.
Anyway, if you don't want to, you can place this in your Wardrobe and wear
it around with pride.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[15.01] Study Parenting

You now have the option to study parenting as a "skill". This is to say that
you can go to the bookshelf and choose to study parenting as if it were a
skill that you can study such as cooking, cleaning and mechanical. Unlike a 
normal skill, this topic will not have skill points, so that if you max it
out, you would be a super-dooper parent. You can only study it, and finish it
once. Once you do that, you have the ability to do better parenting. Note
that all Sims can learn this, not just those who happen to have kids. 

When you have mastered the skill of parenting, your Sim will have the ability
to "Check On" the baby, and this will have a thought bubble appear on the
top of their head, indicating the lowest motive that the baby has. You get
the general idea what a chicken drumstick would mean hunger, a bed will mean
energy, a chair would mean comfort, a toilet will mean bladder, a showerhead
will mean hygiene and such. This will save you from the evil visit from the
social worker. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[16.01] Best Friends Forever

You can now have some Best Friends Forever. This is basically where the
lifetime relationship is at a high level, which is generally above 75. This
will have a BFF status, represented with the two happy faces next to each
other. This will result in less maintenance overall for the relationship, as
it will decay slower than a normal relationship would. Also, you will have
some exclusive interactions that are only available to Best Friends, so 
make sure that you check it out. The interaction will allow you to somehow
yell across the lot you are on to your BFF, so either you have an extremely
large lung capacity or you truly are BFF.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[16.02] NPC Aging

Now when you age, you no longer age alone. When you are a day out of turning
into the next level, you can choose up to three NPCs, that are good buddies
of yours to age with you. This basically allows you to marry NPC Sims from
your childhood, without you having to control it. Don't worry, your 
neighbourhood won't run out of children age with you. So in all your
transitions, you no longer have to leave anyone behind.

If you replace someone important or essential for daily operations, such as
the mail person, the papergirl, the maid, etc, the game will spawn a 
replacement for itself, so there will be a neverending supply of papergirls,
a neverending supply of maids, mailmen, delivery persons, etc. Wow, its like
a mass cloning factory. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[17.01] Writing Books

Writing books have been completely overhauled. Writing a book is no longer 
write for 24 hours and get a call with your reward from royalties. You now
have to option to write about whatever you want. To write a novel, you have to
go through a process.

First of all, you need to choose how your book is going to plot out. Your
first choice is how the plot is going to develop. You need to progress your
plot 5 times, and you have 44 choices on what you can move onto. This is done
via the images at the bottom. The screen should look like this.

 [] -> [] -> [] -> [] -> []

 [] [] [] [] []
 [] [] [] [] []
 [] [] [] [] []

There are 44 choices, and they are: Warfare, Space, Rainy Weather, Birds, 
                                    Insects, Puzzles, Skyscrapers, Snowfall,
                                    Fish, Peace, Rockets, Sunshine, Elephants,
                                    Rats, Simoleons, Flowers, Tennis, X-Rays,
                                    Doctors, Cruise Liner, Soccer, Sumo, 
                                    Ghosts, Wizards, Trains, Baseball, Skying,
                                    The Genie, Aeroplanes, Soup, Crime, 
                                    Ambulance, UFOs, Cats, Babies, Sirens, 
                                    Phone, Aliens, Question Mark, Treasure 
                                    Maps, Teddy Bears, More Aliens, Dogs and
                                    DNA/Forsenic Crime.

After you have chosen the 5 points on how to proceed, you need to choose a 
cover or dustjacket for your book, and here, you have a nice total of 7
to choose from. They are: A Kid's Book Style Cover
                          A Culinary Guide Style Cover
                          A Harry Potter Style Cover
                          A Sherlock Holmes Style Cover
                          A Romantic Novel Style Cover
                          An Alien Style Cover
                          An Encyclopedia Style Cover

Now, you can start writing your book, and this would take about 28 hours to
complete. A while later, when your book is complete, you need to have a Title
for your book and a brief description of the book. When you have decided on
what to call it and what to name it, you will receive the phone call saying
if the book is a success or not, and your reward for royalties will come in.

This is another new part. A delivery van will turn up and deliver you a copy
of the book that you have now just written. You can accept the delivery and
you now have the option to read the book or to put it away. When you do put
it away, you can access the book when you go to the bookshelf and click the
new "Read Novel" function and you can read the book that you have just read.
You might even gain some goodies from the book that you have written. Talk
about a overhaul.

[17.02] Reading Books

Reading books are changed somewhat as well. You can now read certain genre for
the books. This is in tune with the overhaul of the novel writing system.
You can now access the bookshelf and the read book function will allow you
to read books for 6 different genres. They are : Mystery
                                                 Childrens
                                                 Cooking
                                                 Romance
                                                 SciFi
                                                 Drama

If you want a match up, the Kid Style Book is the Children's Book, the
Culinary Guide Style cover is matches with the Cooking Book, Romance Novel
with Romance, Sherlock Holmes with Mystery, Encyclopedia Style with Drama
and Aliens with SciFi. Harry Potter doesn't deserved to be mentioned. Reading
these books will help your Sims gain interest in the hobby of Film and
Literature, and books will fall in the latter.

[17.03] Movies

With your television, you can now decide to watch movies as well as your
regular programs. These are basically movies that have been created, probably
by Maxis, in game and tuned to become movies. There are 5 different genres
that you can choose from, and each of these genres will host 2 different 
movies that you can watch.

Spooky      - Werewolf
            - Cat Lady
Children's  - Family Fun
            - Fairies
Drama       - Pool Table
            - Bubble Bath
Comedy      - Mime Cat
            - Chicken
Action      - Weather Control
            - Fetch

You can watch the movies, and the credits, which start at the beginning, but
you won't be able to understand a word that they will say. Watching these
movies will increase the enthusiasm gain in Film and Literature. If you want
to watch it and get max enthusiasm, watch it on triple speed and let it
guide.

[17.04] Games

When you first start up the game, a Mr. Rod Humble will turn up and give you
a computer.

"Greetings. They call me Mr. Humble and I am here to bestow upon you a great
 gift. This box contains Sims wonders that will dazzle and amaze. You have
 been awarded this for reasons far too great to tell. Open it, if you
 dare! Open it, I say!"

When you open the present, something will appear in your inventory.

"The gift from Mr. Humble turns out to be a new computer for you and your 
 family! Perhaps this machine and the game included on it are signs of 
 things to come? The computer has been placed in your inventory. Enjoy!"

When you select the Mr. Humble Computer, you get this little message.

Mr. Humble's Computer - §1,350
"A generous gift from the mysterious Mr. Humble, containing all standard
 computer software and accessories, as well as an exclusive game!"

Well, as a recap, you have 4 games that are included in the base game. The
first was the SSX3 snowboarding game. The second is the SimCity 4 - Rush Hour
game. The third is the Sims - Bustin' Out. The fourth, that you can download
off the internet is The Urbz - Sims in the City. 

Now, the fifth game, the "exclusive" game that is included ONLY in Mr.
Humble's computer is The Sims 3. Thats right, the Sims 3, due for release
in 2009 will be included in the computer, already installed. That was nice
of him, providing a game that is not released. Must be an EA employee.

There are another 4 games that you can purchase from the games rack at any
community lot. They are:

MySims - §95
"Explore a whole new world with MySims - it's your world to transform! Move
 to a town that has been struggling lately. With a little creativity 
 and some help from the locals, you can make this place thrive!"

EA Sports FIFA 08 - §95
"FIFA 08 brings you closer to the action than ever before. More user-control.
 social gameplay modes and even greater depths of authenticity ensure 
 that soccer gamers and soccer fans will live out their club glories
 themselves."

Spore - §95
"Create your own creature and personalise it exactly as you want. Then guide
 it throught the fantastic world of Spore, from tidepool to galactic travel."

Command and Conquer 3 - Tiberium Wars - §95
"The acclaimed Command and Conquer series returns with Command & Conquer
 3 Tiberium Wars. Setting the standard for the future of RTS gaming once
 more, C&C 3 takes you back to where it all began - the Tiberium Universe."

Well, these four games are the new games, and three have been released, with
Spore yet to be released. I've already written guides for MySims and C&C 3
and I'll probably do one for Spore as well, but other than that, happy
gaming. The odds of me writing one for the Sims 3 will depend on whether I
can be bothered to write one for it or not, and whether the reviews are 
saying good or bad things on it. Anyway, playing any of these games will
increase your enthusiasm in the fine art of Gaming.

Oh, and once you have Mr. Humble's computer installed, the Sims 3 game will
apply to all your household computers, therefore, after it is installed, you
don't need his computer anymore. And Mr. Humble? Never heard from him ever
again. Mysterious indeed.

Please write in English or anything close to it. It can't understand foreign

Don't write in sloppy English. I mean, who the hell would understand "Hwo Od 
Yoi Di Tjih Ni Tje Sdgs?" Don' be too formal, a question is not a freakin
business agreement so don't say "Dear Sir, In accordance to your Walkthrough

the President of the United States of America or Bill Gates or Donald Trump.
