You wake up, in some sort of clean, person-sized cylinder. A small computer is on the wall, with a miniature keyboard. The screen says as follows, in neon green text;

Please enter the following;
Name:
Gender:
Age:



There are no other triggers or objects of any kind; The cylinder is oddly smooth and sterile. In fact, the more you think about it, you see no light source, despite everything being lit by white luminescence. You faintly smell rosemary.

Thinking yourself clever, you answer the questions with false answers. For no reason, you find the name Cornelius extraordinarily funny, and chuckle to yourself as you type.

>Search for rosemary smell
Looking around, you can tell that there is an air vent at the top right of the chamber. You stick your nose up to it and breathe deeply. You smell rosemary, stronger now. Around the grating is wrapped a bent paperclip. You figure, hey, this is an adventure, right? Better collect everything in case you need it sometime.
BENT PAPERCLIP ACQUIRED.
Just as you're about to see what else you can do with the grating, the computer finishes computing what you typed in, and with a beep, the 'front' of the chamber opens. You eagerly step out of that small cylinder you were trapped in, into the next room. You end up in a long hallway, spanning from left to right. Turning around, you notice that your cylinder wasn't the only one; There are dozens of other cylinders, on both sides of your own. None of them are open, however.

Try checking both ends of the row of cylinders, while checking for any other noticeable scents.

In a sudden bout of seriousness, you check both ends of that row of cylinders, not smelling anything unusual. There is no hint of that rosemary smell; Instead everything smells sterile, dry, stagnant, and there's a hint of wet dog. You examine the cylinders a bit more closely.

Each cylinder stands about eight feet tall and as wide as your arms could stretch, from the inside. At the very top, on both sides of each cylinder sits piping, no doubt corresponding with the air vent, connecting to the other cylinders. Perhaps the smell was coming from one of the other cylinders? You quickly stick your hands up, with your index fingers and thumbs sticking straight out, making L shapes with your fingers, to figure out which side was which; You always had trouble with mixing up left and right. Left was that way. You had smelled that rosemary coming from the LEFT chamber.

Near the bottom of the outside of each cylinder is some sort of small black box with LED lights. There are no buttons on this small black box. In fact, looking up and down at the cylinders, you wonder exactly how they function in the first place.

Still serious, you note the color of LED lights on each cylinder. Most of them are red, but the one you had been inside of was green. Another one was blue, and, on the end of the row, one had the faceplate removed. You saw an array of LED lights of various colors, and some wiring. None of the lights on that cylinder were on. Perhaps it was unpowered.

The 'blue' cylinder looks exactly like the other cylinders, save for the fact that the LED is blue, rather than red or green.

You climb back in your chamber, and check the walls, roof, and floor, for something, anything. That rosemary smell gets significantly stronger, and you get dizzy. The world sways for a moment, and then you go check the wiring of the 'unpowered' chamber. there's a thick black cable connecting to the LED array, and then there's a yellow, a red, and a blue wire. They all look fairly thin, save for the black cable.

> Pull on Black cable

The black cable comes loose easily, and the LED lights all fall out. The other side of the black cable is stuck, however.

Found LED LIGHTS x10

Other than that, nothing happens.

You're actually pretty disappointed.
