Five men barricade themselves in their Mumbai hotel room

Jeremy Kahn and Meg Bortin: Counting the Hours in Room 2324.

And how do they keep hydrated for 36 hours?

As the hours wore on, the men grew hungry and thirsty. They went to the minibar and shared a packet of cookies. They drank the bottled water first, then the soda pop. When they heard they were to be evacuated, they shifted to the beer and hard liquor. Around 11 a.m. Friday, help finally arrived.
How many of us would have taken our liquids the other way around?
