Why the hell are these women just taking it? If someone put paint thinner in my mouth, I'd spit it right in the senior's face and hopefully get it in her eyes. God damn, I'd at least TRY to fight back (and I am a high school junior). But hey, I'm sure karma's gonna come full swing to the seniors...
The thing that got me was, all these girls acting like they are all bad ass and tough, for no apparent reason. You wanna haze somebody, play a joke on them or embarrass them, well, I am all for that. However, to just beat the shit out of somebody for no real reason is just fucking pathetic.
And, the fact that the Juniors paid $40 each just to PARTICIPATE should tell you how much they value being a part of the "cool crowd". What a bunch of fucking morons! On both sides.
And these are HIGH SCHOOL GIRLS, not College girls. What kind of benefit did they hope to gain from this? (I am talking about the Juniors, not the Seniors). LOSERS!
I mean, at least in college you are trying to join a Frat or a Sorority, I can almost understand putting yourself throught that crap. (although I never understood the whole frat/sorority scene, never understood why people feel the need to have to pay cash, and be tortured just to have people be their friends)

The shit we did to new guys in the Rangers wasn't as bad as that. We could be pretty ruthless, but it usually amounted to nothing more than a few bruises and major embarassment.
I think the meanest thing we ever did to anybody was when we kidnapped this butterbar, stripped him, hogtied him and hung him up in a tree overnight. And we were only that ruthless because the guy was a total piece of shit.
The fact that high school kids have worse initiations than Army Rangers makes me shiver inside.
People always say "the children are the future." I hope I'm dead by the time those little shits are the future.
High School students are some of the most vicious people on the planet. I'm pretty sure it's just a product of rounding up a bunch of children, holding them captive for 8 hours a day, 180 or so days a year for 12 years, and teaching them to compete with each other over meaningless goals.
Or I may be wrong. But, it was the Guru who posted the 'Nerds' link
Roxanne from The Real Cancun on being famous: "I'd rather be known for [dancing topless with my twin sister] instead of being smart or something. There's a million people who are smart. There's only 16 of us who were in Cancun together."
I can't believe there was nobody around to draw the line at human feces. Didn't anybody find that odd? Or think that turpentine in the mouth may not be a good idea either? And if there were people who said something about it, how is it that there was enough enthusiasm to overrule those people? This is something I just can't wrap my head around.
By the way, Jag, your sig, when combined with this news story, makes me want to break down and cry even more. So...many...stupid...people...

Yep. Painful, but petty. I made it to being tied upside down on the confidence course overnight. And, truth to tell, I was a jerk. But no one really hurt me. Only two marks on me from that (The guy who tied my feet did it too tight and on the skin, so I had rope burns) I couldn't even watch the tape of these girls. And I would have the ass of those boys who just stood around taping it.

Doesn't it just reek of rich kid insanity?
I came from a country lower-class area. If someone had a problem with someone else, they'd just get into it one-on-one. There'd be some bruises or a broken nose at worst, and if it got really serious, people's buddies would break it up. In the end it would be all good, problem solved. I think that's fine behavior for kids with a hair up their ass.
Wrapping pig intestine around someone's head, pouring turpentine down their throat and beating them en masse is not fucking acceptable to me.
I guess straight-up fistfights are too "common" for the future leisure class. They need to give people fucking nightmares and neuroses for the rest of their lives. Shows us little people who's better, I guess.
I know at least some of you have young 'uns (Pieman, DEAN! Iím looking at you). Does anyone have a recommendation for a good Internet "filter" for kids? I have a cable modem, and the computer is always on.
