If I could, I would declare this to be INCONSISTENT. Priest Wooble declares
that, because it is currently nday 8, there are no Open Proposals.

Please note that it is only nday 8 if I have already usurped the Ministry of
Ministry and stopped the Clock.

Alas, I attempted to usurp the Ministry of Ministry as a future game action
that is set to happen a few minutes before the end of nday 8.

If it is currently nday 8, then clearly I cannot yet have usurped this
Ministry and stopped the Clock.

I didn't call it Logical Hand Grenade for nothing.
