For the person who has everything else:
At U.S. Submarines we have developed the world's first personal luxury submarines, capable of taking you and your guests to unseen regions of the deep ocean in perfect comfort and absolute safety. And once there, you are able to view the fascinating denizens of the deep through large, panoramic viewports, while relaxing in an interior replete with luxury and warmth.
A personal luxury submarine? Sounds good, but you're looking for that little bit more?
The Phoenix 1000 is a 65-meter (213') personal luxury submarine. The initial design was originally executed for a client and now awaits a buyer. As proposed, the submarine would constitute the single largest private undersea vehicle ever built, and arguably, one of the most significant personal transportation devices of the century.
The Phoenix is capable of making trans-Atlantic crossings at 16 knots yet can dive along the route and explore the continental margins of some of the most fascinating waters on earth. And unlike surface yachts, when the water gets rough, the submarine can submerge into a perfectly smooth and quiet environment, continuing on toward its destination, providing a ride unsurpassed in quality-unequaled by the finest motor coach or the most luxurious executive aircraft.
Aft of the superstructure, or optionally, above the control cabin on the bow, is an area for a docking minisub. Utilizing a special docking collar, this vehicle is capable of leaving the Phoenix while submerged and making excursions down to 610 meters (2000 feet). With both top and bottom hatches, the minisub could also bring passengers from the surface to the submarine lying at depth. The minisub could be designed to hold between two and eight passengers, depending upon the owner's preferences. Additionally, in the unlikely event of an emergency at depth, the minisub could be used to take passengers and crew to the surface.
Previously only available to James Bond super-villains, the Phoenix 1000 would make a fine gift for that special someone in your life. And at just $78 million, it's so affordable! Contact U.S. Submarines to order your Phoenix 1000 today!

In case you're wondering, Ambient Irony has migrated to Movable Type 3.121. Hence the drastic simplification of the layout. I'll make it a comfortable mess again when I get time.
It did it again! Icon-thief!!
But if I edit it and save it again, it works fine. Meh.

Lina just got promoted to Astronaut!
This post is not expected to make sense to people who are not fans of both Deborah Conway and The Sims 2. (And if you are also a fan of The Slayers, you will be
horrified delighted to hear that Amelia got promoted to Counter Intelligence. And has anyone else noticed that the career question you get in Counter Intelligence is a no-win situation? Heads you lose, tails you lose, don't toss the coin - you lose.)

So that's how you make easy money in the Sims. Make friends with someone rich, then invite them to move in.
I'll have to try that on my single-mom-with-three-kids family, who are struggling a bit.
* Most of my current Sims are female.**
** Feel free to psychoanalyse in the comments. I don't mind, you're probably right.
