Ascension Address: You May See This Ascension Address Again

“Well, the Vacation sure was nice, but now it’s time to get back to the daily grind. As your meteorologist, I feel it is my duty to place your further attention in the ample paws of Punxsutawney Phil. Phil?”

“Thank you for those kind words, Mr. Murray, but I’m afraid you’ve done it this time. Squandering your days producing B-level films? Squelching your glory years participating in poorly designed reality tv shows? Punctuating your mortal existence by lazing around at the beach? No, Mr. Murray, that’s not going to cut it this time. Not on my watch. You are going to have to relive the same span of time over and over again until you make something of yourself. I don’t care if it takes 10 years, your life won’t progress any further until you do something worthwhile. Oh, and by the way, there’s going to be 6 more weeks of winter (or for you, an eternity). Have a nice days!”

Fail all pending Proposals. Repeal all Dynastic Rules except 2.1. Backup the GNDT logs and then clear them, if anyone knows how. Replace Tourist with Bill Murray. Replace Tour Guide with Phil. Replace Quorum with Weatherteam. Welcome to the Groundhog Day Dynasty!

A bunch of rules that formerly used ‘quorum’ as a number now don’t make sense unless the reader is very nomic-savvy.

You can’t just fail all proposals by making a post saying so, although free to go back through them and stick veto icons on them so that you can fail them.

Yeah, I figured that out. Emperors tried to do that before, but just now I saw that it didn’t actually do anything.

Yeah, the Quorum bit involves a little thinking but in reality, it’s exactly as though the word “Weatherteam” had the same meaning as “Quorum.”
