I guess there wouldn't be any of that top shelf pussy in a monastery, would there?

Fraternity brothers are secret gay lovers, as the saying goes.
So there's another similarity to monastic life.

Right? Don't those who live a monastic life try to abstain from all the fun things in life anyway? I'm pretty sure that many frat activities make them the antithesis to monasteries.

If they could follow the Rule of St. Benedict , I'd be for giving them that waver...

Of course, that would be about as likely as the Republican Party turning hard left, (as far left as the German Green Party), after this election cycle....

Uh, wouldn't a great drunk girl pickup line be:

Gay decision if ever there was one. My issue is not with calling bullshiat on the monestary claim but with the judge not calling bullshiat on the blatant unconstitutionality of zoning laws. Zoning laws deny folks full use of their property without due process.

This particular zoning law has been on the books since 1970, according to TFA. I'm not feeling much sympathy for the guy who bought the house with the intention of making it a frat house without checking zoning first. As a matter of fact, I feel just as sorry for him as I do the people that move into neighborhoods with frat houses and then complain about loud parties from September to May.

I had a "bro" try and tell me being in a frat was the same as being in the military. I said "Oh really, when was the last time the Alpha Beta's launched mortars at your house?" The only similiarity is alcohol consumption. And I would still put my money on a military when it came to that.
 
2012-09-16 06:49:07 PM
You know, I find the zoning exception thats exclusive for religion offensive since it explicitly ignores that people can be atheist and have a kind of a monastery that's dedicated to living life to the fullest before death.

Yeah, I know. I do the same in reality show, college football, and jazz threads. Probably some other topics too, but I've been trying to kill a head cold with alcohol and may heve forgotten a couple.

Ya know, I try & read all these frat threads ( for the lulz) & I just realized that I have never once
seen the term "frat bastard" used. Considering all the hate piled on them I find this a bit of an anomaly.
I find it quite catchy.

Y'all can all shut the fark up. I'm a DKE and proud of it. I swear to god I went to hell and back to be able to call myself a DKE. I went through some shiat that y'all could never imagine going through.One of our older brothers is a US Navy Seal and just got back from Iraq, he said that he would rather go through basic training and he would rather go back and fight for a week before he would come back and go through our initiation. Trust me, y'all motherfarkin pussies couldn't handle the shiat that goes down for 5 minutes...Go on and hate on my fraternity if you want, I don't give a shiat, there's nothing I can techinically do about it, but I think it's a proven fact that the only reason have for hating on fraternities is that they don't know, or are scared to go through what it takes to be apart of it.For those of you that don't know, DKE is an active chapter of what is known as the "Skull and Bones" the most secret society in the nation. More secret than the CIA, and possibly the NSA. George Bush, jr, and sr, were both Dekes, as well as both the Roosevelts, and Gerald Ford. We had 7 of our leading presidents, more than any other fraternity of common group ever. We were the leading provider for the Civil war, both north and south, we were the first fraternity in the state of Mississippi, as well as Alabama, and Lousiana.Y'all don't know shiat about what I've been through, and until you come over and go through what I've been through to call my brothers brothers then fark off. I don't give a fark about anybody on here. So shut the fark up.

/love this bullshiat rant so much
//hope you enjoyed it, too!

I pledged a frat when my freshman year and bailed when I realized what dicks most of them were. Still had a couple pledges that were friends there. When I tried to call one of them during initiation week the person who answered said "He can't come to the phone right now, everybody's in the showers."

Because they're "frat rats"

The term "rat bastard" is quite catchy and in fact positive. No one dislikes the real rat bastard character in a movie. He's sexy. Frat guys are like sewer rats, covered in fur and germs and kind weird lookin' subsisting on stuff that would make a billy goat puke. We don't use sexy terms for THAT kind of critter.

"Son, we live in a world that has social walls, and those walls have to be guarded by bros. Who's gonna do it? You? You, BoobiesMaster69? I have a greater responsibility than you could possibly fathom.

You laugh and curse the DKE. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know. And my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves lives.

You don't want the truth because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me in that old boys' network, you need me on that wall. We use words like hazing, kegger, date rape. We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punchline.

I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide, and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather you just said thank you, and went on your way, Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a beer pong ball and stand a post. Either way, I don't give a damn what you think you are entitled to."

If religious things didn't ask for exceptions to various laws and taxing I think that'd have fixed the situation a lot better.

The difference is that NO ONE in a band thinks they're friends. At least not while operating as a band.

God farking damnit. Not this thread again.

Look, I get it if you didn't join one. I definitely didn't want to originally either. However, don't spout off in every thread about how it's people "buying friends", because it isn't. You can't buy friends, and no amount of money will make people like hanging out with you, which is kind of a pre-requisite for getting a bid. Yes, we're exclusive by nature. We don't want everyone, and not everyone is guaranteed a bid. Too bad. Nothing in life is guaranteed. Perhaps, as a result, this makes us exclusionary, elitist dicks. Or, perhaps you should simply realize that it isn't for everyone (much like anything else in life) and simply stop caring about what we decide to do with our college years.

Want to know what we do pay for?

-Socials, because buying bar tabs for your brothers and 60+ girls isn't cheap. Neither are alumni events or away weekends.
- Philanthropy, so we can register teams for events like Relay for Life and Dance Marathon.
-National dues (bulk of our dues) for insurance.
- Budget for recruitment, brotherhood events and housing.

That's about it. It's not paying for friends. It's paying so that I can do a lot of awesome things with my friends.

Im not sure about NC State being a good engineering school, we have a lot of interns at my job who are engineering students there. But I was near a lot of engineers in the military, they were better at blowing shiat up than building anything.
