Well, thinking of Fight Club the other day, the most striking scene of the movie for me is when Tyler (Brad Pitt) gives out the Rules of Fight Club. Here they are:
#1 - The first rule of Fight Club is, you do not talk about Fight Club.
#2 - The second rule of Fight Club is, you DO NOT talk about Fight Club.
#3 - If someone says stop, goes limp, taps out, the fight is over.
#4 - Two guys to a fight.
#5 - One fight at a time.
#6 - No shirts, no shoes.
#7 - Fights will go on as long as they have to.
#8 - If this is your first night at Fight Club, you have to fight.
Thinking about them, I thought couldn't we have some similar rules or at least similar "sounding" rules for our INFYnity Toastmasters Club down here. So here are the rules that I propose for my club aka from now SPEECH CLUB:
#1 - The first rule of Speech Club is, you do talk about Speech Club.
#2 - The second rule of Speech Club is, you DO talk about Speech Club.
#3 - If the timekeeper shows the red flag, the speech is over.
#4 - Two parties to a speech - the speaker and the evaluator.
#5 - One speech at a time .
#6 - No mobile phones and no cross-talk .
#7 - Speeches go on only as long as they should.
#8 - If this is your first evening at Speech Club, you have to speak.
Wonder how it sounds to some of my fellow Toastmasters oops, fellow SPEECH CLUB members ??
