    If you don't want to join the greek system, fine, then don't, but don't go around bad mouthing the people who do. You talk all this crap about how terrible the members of the greek system are, well when I was an undergrad we had four separate incidents of people breaking into our house during parties to steal stuff (luckily we caught them) and do you know how many of them were in fraternities, none, so by your logic, I could conclude that all people who weren't in fraternities were bad.

    Isn't this an indictment of our entire American society in general?

    Stereotypes are bad, and everyone who believes in them are typical retards who breathe through their mouths and play with pee.

    Uh, Jay ... you're smarter than this.

    Of course the Greeks are doing better than the other groups. A large percentage of them are STARTING with a 20-yard headstart in life's 100-yard dash.

    You aren't seeing a whole lot of kids from Watts in Gamma Mu Mu Delta.

    IIRC correctly, the article took that into account by comparing genetic lottery winners from the likes of Harvard, who had better GPAs, to genetic lottery winning athletes from good schools with greek systems and compared how they were doing.
    It was one of those Malcolm Gladwell-type joints that took several flights of fancy, but basically, it read more like a slam on the Ivy League schools since going to a good college, and being involved on campus was more productive down the line.

    They also promote camaraderie, and brotherhood, and can help you gain connections for a job.

    And philanthropy . . .don't forget philanthropy.

    Yeah, philanthropy. The greatest Greek buzzword when someone dies of alcohol poisoning during hazing.

    Everyone who disagrees with me is wrong. Fat girls have nothing to offer. Thin girls are carriers of venereal disease. Fraternities are all about drunken debauchery and nothing else. Girls who join sororities are shallow souls only interested in landing a rich husband.

    Have I properly distilled the theme of this thread?

    My take: No matter who we are, it still smells bad when we eat asparagus and pee.

    Does eating pee dull the taste of the asparagus?
