Facts about the Greek system

All but two United States Pres­i­dents since 1825 have been fra­ter­nity men.

76% of the Nation’s Con­gress­men are Greek.

85% of all For­tune 500 exec­u­tives are Greek, includ­ing 43 of the top 50 CEOs.

71% of all men listed in “Who’s Who in Amer­ica” are Greek.

Fra­ter­ni­ties exist on over 650 campuses.

71% of all fra­ter­nity men per­sist to grad­u­a­tion. (As com­pared to 50% of non-fraternity men.)

85% of all U.S. Supreme Court Jus­tices since 1900, includ­ing the first woman to be appointed, San­dra Day O’Connor, and the 2nd woman to be appointed, Ruth Bader Gins­berg, (Alpha Epsilon Phi) are or have been Greek.

Greeks annu­ally vol­un­teer upwards of 850,000 hours of com­mu­nity ser­vice and raise over $7 mil­lion for charities.

Greek alumni sup­port to their alma maters rep­re­sent 56% of the total raised… all this while Greeks rep­re­sent only about 2% of the total U.S. population.

Inspiration

Lol, it’s funny what freakin’ peo­ple send these days. Here’s a chain-mail I got. I just fig­ured I’ll post it since I don’t have noth­ing else to blog today…

If I could catch a rainbow
I would do it Just for you
And share with you Its beauty
On the days You’re feel­ing blue
If I could build a mountain
You could call Your very own
A place to find serenity
A place to be alone
If I could Take your troubles
I would toss them In the sea
But all these things I’m finding
Are impos­si­ble for me
I can­not build a mountain
Or catch a rain­bow fair
But let me be What I know best
A friend That’s always there

Mass Hysteria

Believe It or Not!

WARNING!!!!! Don’t go to the bath­room on Octo­ber 28th. CIA intel­li­gence reports that a major plot is planned for that day. Any­one who takes a poop on the 28th will be bit­ten on the ass by an alli­ga­tor. Reports indi­cate that orga­nized groups of alli­ga­tors are plan­ning to rise up into unsus­pect­ing Amer­i­cans’ toi­let bowls and bite them when they are doing their dirty busi­ness. I usu­ally don’t send emails like this, but I got this infor­ma­tion from a reli­able source. It came from a friend of a friend whose cousin is dat­ing this girl whose brother knows this guy whose wife knows this lady whose hus­band buys hot­dogs from this guy who knows a shoeshine guy who shines the shoes of a mail­room worker who has a friend who’s drug dealer sells drugs to another mail­room worker who works in the CIA build­ing. He appar­ently over­heard two guys talk­ing in the bath­room about alli­ga­tors and came to the con­clu­sion that we are going to be attacked. So it must be true.
