All the rolling around on the ground, faces contorted in cross-eyed agony because "some guy pushed me over!" just gave me the shits - especially when they're up and about only seconds after a friggin' stretcher appears on the scene.

... then for the ISA, use an explicitly parallel design that puts a massive burden of work on compiler writers (and also those writing assembly for the kernel and libraries).
