College educated young adults? Ya won't think so after reviewing this gem... I was young at one time and did wild things where I guess someone could've died, but luckily never did... What's worse to think about is this is today's youth... Not smart or decent enough to see when someone is terminal if not helped and do nothing - except the guy that had the compassion to put a book back on his back so he wouldn't drown in his own vomit - he's all heart.

Looking back at my phi delt days I'm amazed something stupid like this didn't happen between all of the severe hazing and drinking that took place..  they kicked the house off campus thankfully. 
These pledges are in big time trouble.

This is big news here too b/c the kid is from Jersey.  

This is another example of how Frat life is slightly retarded and encourages Groupthink.  Some of these kids wanted to call for help but they are discouraged by older members and ultimately vetoed by the Frat President until the late morning.  By the time the kid is admitted to the hospital, over half of his blood was in his stomach.  It was curtains for him at that point all b/c they didn't want to get in to trouble.  So we have 1 dead kid and 18 lives ruined.  SMH

Some Brotherhood.

I love frat guys. They all live at the same houses. I never had to be near them.
