Take them down to the physical rehab department and hook them up to the stationary bicycle generators of course.

If that don't get them going just turn the corpse over the Frank the janitor. He'll put it on the compost pile for you. Unless its winter of course then it's in the boiler for any extra BTU's he can squeeze out of the system!

A system that works would be suitable.

Perhaps tin foil umbrellas or tin foil tents.

Take a wire directly to the isolation ward and contain the strike there.

Earth the beds.

Add in an 80m radius.

Be nice to your local shaman.

I give up, what is the answer?

Anything that turns out to be covered by the local Building Regulations. If in doubt, contact the Planning section of the Local Authority, as the Building Inspectors from this office will be responsible for sign-off of the Completion Certificate for the notifiable works, and it is better to get it all done to local code before inviting inspection rather than to have it as an outstanding snag at the end of the job.

All it takes is a phone call.

Good luck.
