There was a brief coup in 2009- I don't remember the couper (might be Wickedly Evil?) but the restored delegate was ROLHEATH, who exclusively communicated in haiku. Only in haiku? Now that sounds absolutely wonderful and eccentric as all hell! There are more of us Than you might think, my friend. O...

I should point out that Option 4 no longer makes sense, as with the total refactoring of Option 2, there is no longer a bloody coat of wool in any sicko's duffel bag from which to clone the thing. Maybe Mary throws her shepherd crook in a fit of anguish and your Minister of Really Creepy Research pi...

Fourth option: The Bird Lady will solve your precious little emu problem... In exchange for a sacrifice! Or nationwide municipal accommodation for large birds. Or something. This feels like it's crying for a callback.

Love the description. It occurs to me that the speakers in the first two options should be reversed - i.e. the sheriff is more likely to want some kind of gun safety rules than the arms dealer gun rights activist. That or comprehensive gun laws for "the wrong sort of people" - why, didn't ...

However, the problem with the description I think is the validities it is inviting. Surely you could make the conversation be much vaguer as to what it was about, say for example just "the issue of terrorism". Use of naval resources for humanitarian relief. Maybe it's a stretch, but it's ...

I'm not sure I see how banning polygamy suddenly makes ex-spousal murder rates spike. Is it because "You told me I was your first wife, you two-timing bastard!!"? This would make more sense if that option let made each person pick a single one of their many spouses to remain married to.

It reads like Philip K. Dick on a little bit of acid and a whole lot of PCP. I would avoid.

I think a potentially more interesting issue would be what happens if the government's social media initiative backfires with people who aren't having it (like in these examples: 1 , 2 , 3 ). Your advisors in this case would be scrambling to come up with ways to fix the problem. Lot of fertile groun...
