Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,

Why is it so hard to open some of the doors on the ground floor, south side of the Tanner building? I have to use my entire body weight to get some of them open, and even then it's a challenge!

Also, last year they had that big glass door at the top of the stairs in the Tanner closed with a sign that said, "Please use other side". Was it really broken or were they just trying to do a social experiment that lasted an entire year?

A:

Dear crazy, a word which here means someone who is marginally upset at the state of doors on campus,

Allow me to quote one of my favorite authors:

There are many, many things that are difficult in this life, but one thing that isn't difficult at all is figuring out whether someone is excited or not when they open a present.

Opening those doors is just one of those difficult things.

Also, yes. It was a social experiment. My sources contacted me via paper airplane, but it's entirely possible that the real answer was intercepted by wicked people and exchanged with false information.

The door at the top of the stairs last year wasn't really broken. It just made a high pitched noise that echoed really loudly so they put up that sign until it was fixed.
