Chapter 3

The Chair

Two weeks later, John Doe's desk chair collapsed in his dorm room. Carrying the remains down to the dumpster at the end of the hall seemed too easy, so The F**k, Record Breaker, BurgerMan (a new recruit) and the Chairman carried the pieces to the CII and sacrificed the remains to the gravitational gods. Several days later, a letter to the editor from the CII night cleaning crew appeared in the campus newspaper, warning of the dangers of dropping large objects down stairwells. Inspired by their appearance in the media and the approach of Thanksgiving, the Droppers began to plot their next appearance. A liquid-nitrogen-frozen turkey on Thanksgiving (which would shatter on impact) was considered, but it never materialized.
