Order. I say to the Government Minister standing at the Bar: be quiet. I have not the slightest interest in hearing you yelling in the background. Sit down, be quiet and listen, and if you are not able or inclined to do that— Order. Do not look at me and tell me what’s what or imply that you can. Be quiet and do not be discourteous to the Member on her feet.
I couldn't help laughing. 32 people playing the collective "role" of Gordon Freeman, going through Half-Life's dramatic plot together. They're dressed in a variety of fancy dress. Jar-Jar Binks from Star Wars is there for some reason. They're jumping around, bothering the NPCs, spraying giant anime pics on the walls while scientists go through their usual scripted sequences. The atmosphere is completely ruined and it's joyous
