A man with a ridiculous looking white coat and a bottle full of some foul-smelling substance, which sadly fails to mask the equally repugnant stench of mercury flowing from his bizarre get-up, bursts in.
"My goodness goodness me, you'll never imagine the original and never-before done idea I've come up with! What if some mischievous scallywag ran around making all the different nations in the world all declare war on one another for the silliest reasons, before picking some godforsaken out-the-way spot to watch the fireworks from? Wouldn't that be a laugh?"
(At this point, other drinkers conclude the poor man is quite mad and, if he isn't, is clearly trying too hard to seek out the attention of others. Shaking their heads sadly, they go back to their drinks.)
(In sane speak, I'd like to see someone do an AAR which, hands off, went round having each nation declare war on one another in the 1836 start (as in, everyone against everyone else) and then watching the fireworks unfold. It'd probably be more dramatic an effect in EU III though, plus its kind of a lot of work to set up.)
