Fraternity Hazing Ritual

You only pass if you say "I ain't doing any of that."

Probably be hard to keep secret, but kids are dying from these stupid hazing rituals which only enforce mindless servitude.

This fraternity would give those who want to join a list.

1- Drink a big bottle of alcohol.
2- Allow us to paddle your naked butt.
3- Wear embarrassing or demeaning clothing.

Etc.

How does the pledge pass the hazing ritual and be accepted? They ball up the list of stupid things they have to do to be accepted and throw it back in the leader's face.

You've passed the "I am not a mindless sheep to be abused." test. Welcome aboard brother! The Smegma Crappa Lamebutta fraternity welcomes you!

Another proposed test common_20sanity_20test
Not a "let's all" or a "non idea". [doctorremulac3, Sep 01 2022]

And another... Primality_20Test
[doctorremulac3, Sep 01 2022]

Etc. Too many tests proposed here to list them all. Intelligence_20Testing_20for_20Candidates

Vichyssoise https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vichyssoise
Vichyssoise is a thick soup made of boiled and puréed leeks, onions, potatoes, cream, and chicken stock. It is traditionally served cold, but it can be eaten hot. [Voice, Sep 01 2022]

My reaction to the the somewhat ironic, dolphin/tuna vichyssoise recipe. https://giphy.com/g...-3q3QK6KyDVUBzih7hB
Expecially if it specified being made with "dolphin safe" tuna, which is entirely possible. The dolphins weren't endangered by the catching of the tuna per se. [doctorremulac3, Sep 01 2022]

       let's all, or at least not an idea
Voice, Sep 01 2022
  

       It's a proposed test utilized to achieve a particular outcome.

       I could write a hundred proposed policy reforms for schools, governments, or other organizations. None would be an idea. Not even if I framed them as "a government that does x"
Voice, Sep 01 2022
  

       It's not a policy reform.
doctorremulac3, Sep 01 2022
  

       A fraternity that publishes all hiring decisions made by former members to prevent nepotism. A government that increases speed limits wherever reasonable, using modern technology to properly track ideal speed limits and doesn't use speeding tickets to collect revenue. A school that only uses open source textbooks. A government that carefully investigates all instances of potential corruption even though that may cost more than the corruption. A grocery store with friendlier employees because their people are paid a living wage.   

       Your proposal is "A fraternity that only accepts people sufficiently disagreeable or otherwise forewarned not to actually perform the demanded rituals" Okay, fine. It's an idea. But it's not an Idea.
Voice, Sep 01 2022
  

       So you can't suggest changes in how things are done, new processes, new procedures that improve outcomes etc eh?   

       Okay, news to me.   

       //It's an idea. But it's not an Idea.//   

       Which is a sentence, but not in the typical meaning of a sentence, something that says something.   

       Having a rough day V? Bit ragey eh? //let's all, or at least not an idea// So infuriated didn't even have time to spend on proper capitalization or punctuation? Yikes.   

       I say let's all sit down, have some dolphin safe tuna and work out our differences.
doctorremulac3, Sep 01 2022
  

       "A fraternity that only accepts people ... forewarned not to actually perform the demanded rituals."   

       Speaking of sentences, that one shows you didn't actually read the idea. You’re a smart guy, I think if you thought about it you might change your mind.   

       I'll get the dolphin safe tuna started. (link)
doctorremulac3, Sep 01 2022
  

       Extra dolphin or nothing.
Voice, Sep 01 2022
  

       For you V, absolutely.   

       Tuna / dolphin vichyssoise with extra dolphin coming up.
doctorremulac3, Sep 01 2022
  

       This all seems awfully biased and unaccepting of any alcoholic nudist masochists who might apply to join, particularly those who occasionally like to change things up by with the odd fetish outfit.
Skewed, Sep 08 2022
  

       Lol!   

       Good point.
