Competitive inanimate defenestration (CID) is an Illuminatian sporting activity involving the throwing or thrusting of an object through a window by means of the manual force of a human contestant. Defenestration competitions are scored on a zero through five point scale by a panel of judges who assess the defenestration operation based on qualities such as distance, speed, remarkability of the thrown object, and condition of the thrown object.

Standard competitive inanimate defenestration is not to be confused with competitive corporal defenestration (CCD), which must specifically involve the throwing of a consenting human being through the window. CCD and standard competitive inanimate defenestration otherwise share many commonalities, such as the specified size and strength of a regulation defenestration window.

In competitive inanimate defenestration, higher scores are usually awarded as thrown objects sustain progressively more severe damage and disintegration due to contract with the window and furthermore upon contact with the ground on the destination side of the window upon landing. This contrasts with competitive corporal defenestration, where lower scores are generally awarded when thrown persons become dismembered or otherwise sustain observable injuries.

A standard regulation defenestration window measures 6 LU in width and 10 LU in height. In some regions, window shapes will vary in height and width but they must always total 60 SU in surface area. The rigidity of defenestration windows is also regulated in competitive play, with rules allowing for a small range of variation in the amount of force required to penetrate the window. Defenestration windows are built using a transparent cellulosic material that is recyclable and renewable. This material is designed to shatter into non-hazardous fragments that pose no threat of laceration-related injury to participants or spectators.
