Storyline

A slow janitor, Karl, is befriended by his employer, a brilliant scientist who is dying of cancer. The older man decides that his various talents should not be allowed to die with him and convinces the young man to "push the green button". This single act downloads the scientists experiences and "self" into the mind of Karl. At first, the personalities work together as symbiotes. The scientist is not finished with just his download, however, and continues to download other minds into Karl's brain. The strain of the extra personalities warring in his mind begin to cause problems. Several deaths, including the mad scientist's, have detectives looking into the issue as well. Written by Anonymous
