Hello,

I stumbled upon a text from the french 17th century philosopher Blaise Pascal you might find interesting. Roughly translated, here's what it says :

"A man was cast by a storm on an unknown island, whose inhabitants were trying to find their lost king; bearing much likeness to the king, having his body and his face, he was mistaken for him. At first, he didn't know what to do; but eventually he gave in to his good fortune. He accepted all manifestations of respect et let himself be treated as a king."

Rings a bell, right ? The "loophole" here is unintentional, but still ...


( Sorry for any linguistic mistakes, I'm french, just so you know )
