From 11:00PM PDT on Friday, July 1 until 5:00AM PDT on Saturday, July 2, the Shmoop engineering elves will be making tweaks and improvements to the site. That means Shmoop will be unavailable for use during that time. Thanks for your patience!
Our narrator is fully involved in Project Mayhem now, and he has homework of his own: "We each had to bring Tyler twelve driver's licenses. This would prove we each made twelve human sacrifices" (20.4).
Things are getting intense.
He confronts Raymond K. Hessel at the all-night Korner Mart.
Raymond might have potential. He has an expired community-college ID in his wallet and says, at gunpoint, that he wanted to be veterinarian.
Our narrator promises not to kill Raymond K. Hessel if he stops wasting his life, gets out of the Korner Mart, and makes something of himself.
He releases him and says, "Raymond K. Hessel, […] tomorrow will be the most beautiful day of your life" (20.59).
Don't worry, we have no idea what's going on either.
