Please submit the following PARROT delimited text to the citizens of
Simplex by email.

The thingie with the name Olaf Ragnorak the harfy rabid parrot states in
its description:

>Olaf Ragnorak the harfy rabid parrot pecks out the eyes of
>any player who disagrees with Tom or with Muscle Man Murphy.
>No players can own Olaf except for Gabe, known in Simplex as
>Mr. Harf. No players, including Gabe and including Dictator
>Tom to be, can alter or remove Olaf in any way. This takes
>precedence over any rule, law, proposal, act of Tom, or any
>other thing in the future that would do so, including things
>that say that they take precedence over this.

The applicable law in this case is Law 115 which states:

>Whatever is not prohibited or regulated by a law is
>permitted and unregulated, with the sole exception of
>changing the laws, which is permitted only when a law or
>set of laws explicitly or implicitly permits it.

The parrot was created under the authority of 115 which defers all actions
it permits to any other law. Therefore, though the parrot claims
precedence over laws to be, it is not authorized to do so.

The issue I'd like clarified by a judge is: Can Olaf Ragnorak the harfy
rabid parrot be affected by Laws created in the future as I claim or not?
If not why?
