The best rules that I've found for the I'm Surrounded By Idiots challenge was listed on the Winters ISBI blog! I think there were rules on boolprop for awhile, but I wasn't able to find them!
The whole point is to maintain a household over ten generations while only controlling one character, your torch-holder! Everyone else is left to fend for themselves! Inevitably, hilarity ensues.

-No locking in wishes for non-controllable sims
-No service sims at all (not even babysitters) - GULP!
-May send Spouse to get a job on the first day, especially if they have an Ambitions job!
-You may accept opportunities for non-controllable sims, but you cannot send them to collect anything or go anywhere. They have to be able to complete the opportunity alone (i.e. read a book, stay late for work, etc.)
-You may change the "tone" at work/school to work hard, slack off, or meet new people!
*note: I will not be starting with an insane trait, but I'm sure as I randomize through the generations, I'll get plenty of insanity!
