Running with the "[game] is nothing more than a [really bad act]-simulator for kids," SomethingAwful's Forum Goons came up with about 21 real-world skill simulator concepts, as an alternative to shootin', murderin' and killin'. The entries range from the mundane to the raunchy (as most things do on SA). See!

(Or, just take echinacea and goldenseal and drink water like hell the weekend before). Two others on the jump, loads more at the link.
