The Royal Privy Council of Perspicacious Polymaths

When America comes to its senses and proclaims me king or a military cabal installs me on the throne after a bloodless (as possible...) coup d'├ętat, I will appoint the following polymaths, and all around cool dudes and dudettes, to my privy council.

Please note that I abjure the use of the royal we. This is your semi-humble and reluctant monarch subtly but sincerely signaling that I certainly support the sagacious sentiment that "...the truth is that the State in which the rulers are most reluctant to govern is always the best and most quietly governed..."

And, of course, lest we forget, "...anyone who is capable of getting themselves made president should on no account be allowed to do the job." -Douglas Adams
