Here is a scintillating sample:Cube, or7 Complete Strangers of Widely Varying Personality Characteristics are Involuntarily Placed in an Endless Kafkaesque Maze Containing Deadly TrapsAble to take only so much hip-hop and databases,I get some coffee and shoot-the-shitwith the co-workers there. Times like thisI think about that movie Cube.The best-worst movie I have ever seen,it’s about these people who wake up in a giant cube.Frantically they run around the cube’s identical roomsdiscovering each otherand getting bloodbathed by unforeseen trapsset by an unseen boss. It’s a test. If they work togetherthey live. They fall into the regularcharacter types: the soldier, the clown, the babe.Only the autistic guy lives.He actually likes the work of not gettingbloodbathed. Tomorrow, I’ll besomebodys boss. But todayI can confidently count on myselfas someone I would like.
