Doesn't it seem unlikely that a coke bottle could survive a drop of several thousand feet?
Even though I haven't participated in DS106 in a long time, I still follow it part time. The MacGuffins got me hooked last night. I hadn't heard of MacGuffin before, so I spent a good half-hour reading examples in a Google search.
I also don't watch much TV nor movies, so I miss the punchline of many of these fine plot-line sabotages. I appreciated the youtube link the Bava posted with his "gangas/badges" alternative. So here's the link for anyone who hasn't seen "The gods must be crazy" - start at 8:15 if you're in a hurry. Broken Coke bottle, courtesy http://www.thimic.net/3d/
