I didn't check this thread for a couple of days, only to return this afternoon to catch up. Congrats to everyone who turned it into another "hurr durr, Southerners are so stupid, but they sure are nice" threads. There's something very amusing (in a facepalm sort of way) about a bunch of smug regionalists using stereotypes to attack the ignorance they perceive in the South while simultaneously extolling the virtues of the open mindedness they developed in their home region.

And people wonder why Southerners tend to distrust outsiders and lock themselves into regionalism.

That was pretty articulate for a cousin-porking rube.

To be fair, smug regionalism is alive and well in every region. Everyone hates everyone else, and, frankly, they usually have good reason. Almost everybody almost everywhere kinda sucks in their own special and unique (i.e. regional) way. This thread just happened to be about the south.

And it can be broken down further than by region ... right down to neighborhoods ... and even next-door-neighbors.

In the military and some criminal groups, people have to "make their bones", in one way or another. This makes a certain amount of sense, as in a violent situation, you'd want to be sure the person next to you to be dependable.
I don't see the need of this in an academic situation.

BTW my roots are in the in the South.

well put. from experience its the people that were pwned in high school who were the worst hazers. coincidentally i had no respect for them as brothers.

A shared unique experience strengthens team cohesian. I see no problem with non-lethal methods to cultivate that espirit de corps. When I was 18 I spent 24 hours wired into a terminal coding non-stop, powered by coffee and energy drinks along with the other guys in the project as a challenge. I also rolled down a hill in a plastic bin with the other new recruits in the ADF. Your choice, your decision. Be aware that if you refuse to partake the group shall exclude you in spirit.

"A ture man of honor feels humbled when he can not help humbling others"- Robert E. Lee. Lee had already freed his slaves when the war began where as Sherman still had them during and after the war. KA is passionte about the South its our home. We respect the General for his personal integrity and devotion to the Lord. I know it may be hard to see but just as you are passionte about New York we respect and love the south thats what KA is all about. Have a good day and God Bless.

As long as this old thread was revived, the thought has occurred to me that if I could re-live my life differently, it would have been fun to have been in a German dueling fraternity and have the scars on my face to show for it. I gather that in recent decades they try to keep the scarring to a minimum, but I would have wanted the real-deal, conspicuous facial scars, like Otto Skorzeny's.

I hated pledging and it made me despise almost everyone who was in my fraternity, including all of my fellow pledges and a handful of the older brothers. I was expected to do some incredibly disgusting shit, and ... fuck that. There was no reason to subject myself to that -- I had a strong social circle outside of the fraternity, and I am certainly better connected than most of the other brothers -- so I did it half-heartedly, which generated resentment from some of the brothers ... but again, fuck that. I am still close friends with a couple of the bro's, none of whom cared how willing I was to eat disgusting food, and the rest of the brothers can fuck themselves. In my opinion, the frat fucked up because I am/was one of the more social brothers, even though I have now essentially disaffiliated.

This was at a top 10 school.
