The Room


a room

with these 9 people in it

Donald Trump.   Paul McCartney.   David Cameron.   Emma Thompson.   Sandra Bullock.   Christian Bale Mary Queen of Scots. Phil CollinsJane Fonda.

How do you think they’d get on?

From a Starcodes point of view, initially, they would have an absolute love-in. High energy, zap to zap, ego to ego con-celebration like drinking the finest bottle of Grants whiskey in one gulp.

After a couple of hours, it would be a different kind of gulp – there would be animosity.

And then

there would be trouble, confusion, argument, dissatisfaction, and then

MURDER! Someone would not be leaving the room alive.

Which one?

Anyone! but someone would be dead if, indeed, they couldn’t all escape from the room, first. ‘Escape’ is the operative word here because 4+ types don’t do ‘receive’ or ‘retreat’. They stand their ground and bludgeon their opponents into submission. However, in this case there is no one ‘giving’ – it’s all ‘transmission’ so the only hope for a survivor is they all get out of the room first.

But I’ve locked the doors!

Now, there will be mayhem and, not just one but, a number of them will be dead before I bother to open the doors again. You see they can’t work in teams or together in a constructive way. Remember the character of the Preacher and the Cop in The Poseidon Adventure? Now, you’ve got it! Except there’s 9 of them here, not 2!
