Sims Serial Numbers

So for some reason people still find this site searching for serial numbers for The Sims. I'm not sure why, because not only do we not have any serial numbers for The Sims, but we probably own every Maxis game ever made, including The Sims, The Sims 2, Sim City 4, The Sims Superstar, The Sims: Mowin' the Lawn for Uncle Hick, and Sims 2: There's No Way Your Computer Can Handle This Game.

So I was thinking, I don't have any Sims serial numbers, but what if I had RON Sims serial numbers?

Cool! I'm kinda torn on Ron. I give props to the guy for being brave enough to run for governor with the agenda of creating a state income tax. I mean, it's probably a horrible idea, but I'd rather hear it straight from Sims than have to see through Gregoire's false smile.

"Sure I won the election!"

On the other hand, Sims is an old school Seattle liberal. He'd do well as mayor of Seattle. But he's not really cut out for a county as large as King County, which is outgrowing it's Seattle roots. Seattle isn't that big of a city. It's actually pretty small, as population goes. It's impressive because it has this relatively large downtown with lots and lots of tall skyscrapers, and it's really beautiful. But most of the people in the region live outside the city. So how can you serve those people in Woodinville and Covington if you're building light rail between Seatac and downtown?

There are a lot of people who are insist that we not be the next LA. We don't want crazy urban sprawl. That's okay, because we're not the next LA. We're more like the Bay Area, where our physical geography limits growth. But the Bay Area also has tons of freeways. We don't have nearly enough freeways. A couple days ago they opened 405 up early, and not enough people knew about it to clog up the commute home. I left work at 5 for a 6PM appointment. I got there at 5:15. When the freeway system actually works, you realize that things are actually quite nice.
