The Simulator
Ever fantasize about making Big Macs in a McDonalds? Go through all the fun of creating masterpiece burgers without having to risk getting burned in a french-fry grease fire. On this site, you're the employee. You get to choose whether to take a shower when you wake up, what to wear, what to eat for breakfast and even how fast you drive to work. Once you're at work you have to make a certain number of Big Macs before you are allowed to go home, just like in real life! But the fun doesn't stop there! Once you're back in your casa you can eat dinner, watch TV or go to bed early.
