You know, people forget that we live in the twenty first century. But there are genuinely absolute monarchs, and whether it's Mohammed bin Salman as crown prince, but who has executive authority in row in the kingdom of Saudi Arabia or or the Sultan of Brunei. These are people who really have no no checks on them. And if they wake up one morning feeling we're gonna do something they do it. Let's take up. Walnuts. As mayor because they was one train of full-ti- toes about this quite some time ago that they set the term whoever coming team said, well, look, you know, the Celtics getting laziness seventies.
