I was a member of a fraternity that asked pledges, in order to become a brother, to: swim in a kiddie pool of vomit, urine, fecal matter, semen and rotten food products; eat omelets made of vomit; chug cups of vinegar, which in one case caused a pledge to vomit blood; drink beer poured down fellow pledges’ ass cracks… among other abuses.

Study: Sad Movies Tend To Make People Happier[NewsFeed]

The study reveals that most people enjoy watching tragedies because it forces them to reflect on their own relationships, which are generally a major source of happiness in life.

I Got A Vasectomy At 25[BroBible]

I’m fixed. I knew, even before I ever had sex (you know, with a woman), I did not want to ever have kids.  I guess I was pretty self-aware as a little kid.  I’m much too selfish to deal with off-spring and knowing how well-behaved my dogs are, I’d probably have raised a batch of little serial killers anyway.

Anyway, to prevent the unthinkable, and rather than having to depend on my wife’s less-than-stellar memory to prevent an unwanted child from entering the world, I decided the best course of action was for me to get fixed. This also keeps her from actually having to take those hormones, which is probably better for her, too.  I decided to have this done at the ripe old age of 25, just after I moved to Denmark.
