Just drive out of town heading north. If the next place you come to is the same town, approached from the south, you're a Sim.

Easy! :P
Wow, that's really strange! Built-in Deja Vu!

So, how does one prove one is not a sim?

Re: Looking for the name of this story

I'm different. I don't subscribe to iTunes. So when a new episode appears on the forums, I check out ASID's cover, then listen at the website.

A result of reminiscence. Dign't feel right adding quotes to "because this is what we will do when the Russians drop A-bombs on us" because it's a memorized explanation from no one in particular.

Wow.
That's what I'd call an overproduced episode.

Imagine if Norm had expanded 75 lines to 342 Lines...
