SCRIPT MOVIE: Fate’s Peculiar Sense of Humour, by N. Triton

In 2009 London, Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love and beauty, finally finds a person that could spell the end of her being trapped in the body of a dirty, ugly beggar, and get reunited with her long-lost love Ares, the god of war, who is now instigating violence and anarchy through social media. That person is Dr. Drake, a university teacher who lives with his mother, is disliked by his students and shies away from any form of physical contact with women. Can a person who has never experienced love actually bring this emotion of true love back to a world that has reached its apogee of cynicism?

The story follows a scientist named Dr Blank who is terrible at inventing things but wants as he attempts to gain fame and fortune in his numerous attempts at inventing things that sound cool but don’t work the way you expect them to.

When the scene occurs, Dr Blank *decides* he should become an evil scientist instead and instead of inventing he resorts to stealing inventions as it would be more evil.  The scene is of Dr Blank stealing a death ray created by another more successful evil scientist, Dr Painkiller and the scene occurs from the point of view of two inept security guards who are supposed to be keeping an eye on it.
