An aptly named game. A mob of 6 - 20 kids would gather round a solitary victim and then placing 1 hand on their shoulder it would be announced that "ressistance is useless" whereupon they would be lead to a 15 foot deep ditch in an isolated area of the yard and hurled in. The game was interesting as it became a deep test of character for the victim. Some would try to run, some would claw the ground and scream for help that never came, but others would riase their heads high and walk slowly and with dignity to the waiting abyss. This dignity was often accompanied by a round of applause from the mob, whose appreciation of mettle stopped just short of not throwing the person in the pit.

Not a convincing reason why you shouldn't be sent to the headmaster's office for pointing a replica pistol at the caretaker. See also "don't push me, I'm muscley".
