Exactly. I can safely say that at Alabama, these girls are the most caving-to-peer-pressure people I have ever met. They will do just about anything to fit in and look cool. No way do they want to rock the greek boat.

Don't get me wrong; I think these girls, as individuals, probably have no problem with having a black girl in their sorority. But they want to be in the sorority sooooo badly, that they swallow their personal feelings to fit in.

Awesome game, dude.
What a freakin' idiot. And probably a liar. Kid probably pissed him off so he shot and killed him.

I'd like to think the forth quarter rally was skill, but... Yeah, when the Vikings scored on the opening kickoff, I thought the Bears were gonna get crushed. Have to say that was one of the greatest Bears games I've seen in a while.

(As the manager of a large bookstore, part of my job is to call customers who have written bad checks to arrange payment. I call one such customer. I identify myself and verify that I am speaking to the check-writer.)

Me:“I’m calling in regard to a check you wrote for $534 on [date]. It has been returned for insufficient funds, so we’ll need you to come by—”

Customer:“Oh my God! I can’t believe you’re calling me about this! I gave you the books back!”

Me:“I’m sorry? You gave them back? Did you speak to anyone?”

Customer:“Of course! I gave them to the cashier and filled out paperwork!”

(On a hunch, I search the returns for her name. She did return the books, and got a cash refund.)

Me:“Okay, I see you brought them back on [date] and got a cash refund. Is that right?”

Customer:“Yes! And you should be fired for calling me at home for no reason!”

Me:“Ma’am, you still have to pay for the bounced check.”

Customer:“What? I don’t have the books! I am not paying for books I don’t have!”

Me:“You wrote a bad check for merchandise, then returned the merchandise for cash. But the check is still worthless and has to be paid.”

Customer:“What kind of idiot are you? Listen carefully: I. Do. Not. Have. Your. Books. I gave them back and that’s the end of it.”

Me:“I’m afraid it doesn’t matter whether you have the books or not. Now, instead of books, you have our money and we still have a worthless check. You really need to take care of this, or it will be a police matter. I’m sure you don’t want me to go to the magistrate.”

Customer:“Are you calling me a thief?! If you turn me into the police, I’ll have YOU arrested for false reports! I’ll have your job for this! I am a school teacher! I teach math!”

Me:“Ma’am. I need you to follow along here. You wrote a bad check for merchandise, and then returned that merchandise for cash. That is fraud, and it is in an amount that can get you in serious trouble.”

(The customer screams about how I am trying to rob her of money, then hangs up. I phone back a few days later, to give her another chance. Still furious, she sticks to her guns. I try my best, but she just won’t listen or try to understand. After sending her several certified demand letters, I have no choice but to file a criminal complaint. And being over $400, it is a felony fraud charge. Not long afterward, I get a final phone call from her.)

Customer:“ARE YOU THE B**** WHO SENT THE POLICE TO MY SCHOOL?!”

Me:“Ma’am, I had to turn your NSF check over for prosecution because you refused to pay. I gave you many chances to avoid that.”

Customer:“I MIGHT LOSE MY JOB! I have never been so humiliated! I’m going to sue you and your company for this! You are going to jail for what you’re doing to me!”

Me:“Well, ma’am, I’ve tried everything to make you understand, so do what you think you need to do.”

(Ultimately, she is found guilty and told to pay the check and fee, plus court costs. Even when the magistrate explains it to her, she refuses to believe that she owes the money.)

Not really. However, girls that age can be very idealistic and some rigid in their thinking. A generalization, of course.

I heard about Michigan's game. The ref screwed up is what I heard. Of course, I heard that from a Michigan alum.

I had a really nasty flashback when I saw the photo of the Tri Delts. I'm so glad to see that after so many years, nothing has changed. <sarcasm font needed>
Wow. Just wow.

Good for the philanthropy chair that quit. If I was in one of those groups and saw that happen, I'd quit too.

I don't doubt it. Who regularly points the trigger at a little kid and pulls the trigger for fun?

Awesome game, dude.
Why the hell isn't he at least charged with manslaughter? I don't believe the "game" thing. Where the hell is the mother? Letting this idiot play that "game" -- she's just a culpable in my view if she knew about this game.

Why do people live on this Earth like this?

The whole Aryan thing was a myth, according to my understanding, but they are considered caucasian. Here is a picture of albino indians and they have rather European like features, IMO:

Another example of a person and I'm wondering why that person is on this Earth. And TEACHING! And we wonder why kids aren't learning.

Not as bad as the gun game guy, though.

Did you read the comments? THere were some good ones, including from a woman who was pointing out that she can't fault a 19, 20 year old college student for not having balls of steel in this situation. At that age, they're still navigating the waters of life and thinking about their futures.

She said it better than I paraphrased. But she saved most of her disappointment and judgment for the adults *out of college*-- the alums who didn't let the black girls join the sororities.
