Hey, you SimCity players--

--you're all just a buncha pikers compared to Fritz Schranck, who's playing a realtime, full-scale version.

It's a very interesting proposal, but I do urge caution for everyone, for as a very wise man once said, strange women lying in ponds distributing swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony. Remember, you can't expect to wield supreme executive power just because some watery tart threw a sword at you.

(Oh, and by the way, not to rub it in or anything, but we've already got one.)
