A Sneak Peak at Lohse’s Book

Andrew Lohse 12’s book won’t be out until August 26, but if you head over to the Amazon page devoted to Confessions of an Ivy League Frat Boy: A Memoir, you can read the first few chapters using the site’s Look Inside function. Here are pages 1 and 2:

It will be interesting to see how big, uh, a splash Lohse’s book makes.

Addendum: Isaiah Berg has referred to “doming” in these pages — the practice of vomiting on the head of another person. This definition seems unique to Dartmouth. The Urban Dictionary defines the term in several different and equivalently vulgar ways, but it does not reference the term as it is used at the College.

Addendum: A correspondent wiser in such matters than your humble servant writes in to correct my definition of doming:

Doming isn’t when you boot on someone’s head. It’s when two people drink beer over a trash can until one of them throws up. Whoever doesn’t throw up wins the dome.

Addendum: Another alumnus, writing anonymously, offers further background on doming:

“Doming” is a derivative of the word “Thunderdome” taken from the Mad Max movies. It is a contest, typically between two people to see who can drink more without vomiting (hence the trash can between the two). It does not necessarily involve one person vomiting on the other. The germane quote from the movie is “two men enter, one man leaves.”
