 Mutually friendly 2 (Posted on 2011-07-01)

Suppose that any two people are either friends, enemies, or strangers. Prove that any group of 17 people either contains 3 mutual friends, 3 mutual enemies, or 3 mutual strangers.

The enemy of your enemy could be your friend, your enemy, or even a stranger. It is possible to have 3 mutual enemies.
