Reminds me of the chorus from one of the songs on "The Producers " soundtrack.


No matter what you do on the stage
Keep it light, keep it bright, keep it gay!
Whether it's murder, mayhem or rage
Don't complain, it's a pain
Keep it gay!

01-11-07, 10:32 PM
Never mind the fact that you totally say youre not from Austin after you posted that...you've got to be gay if you're loving on Sing.

FYI, my predictions:

Phi Chi: Woos Christian judges with Christian themes. [Insert Michael W. Smith songs here.]
Tri Delt: Whatever it is, they'll make pigskin. It's like they paid off the judges or something.
Theta: Lots of pretty colors...wheeeeeeee. Their acts are GREAT to watch on acid, apparently. The 60s ain't a surprise.
KOT: Inevitably involving dirt, and like DDD, inevitably making pigskin because of the "paid them off" rule. Oiling each other onstage would make sense, though. Bunch of limpwristed nancy boys just LOVE to play with each other in the dirt...but only clean imported northface dirt and never the real stuff.
KXA: Trainwreck, complete with a mime tied down to a track.
Delt / AXO: I'm not sure how this passed the Baylor censors, but it's gonna be a drunken barfight. Supposedly they made an AXO say a disclaimer at the end on how Baylor curses the evils of drinking, but I suspect they'll pay off a Phi Chi to do this for them.
ADPi / LXA: Couldn't use trainwreck because KXA already called it, so they went with a car crash. Problem is, LXA won't show up, so it'll end up being an ADPi running a car off the stage (as opposed to into another car driven by a LXA).
K Sig: Fifteen Minutes of Pure Anthony. No joke; it's a one-man act this year.
FIJI: Men in Chaps. Like Men in Black, only with more chaps and a couple less aliens. And more men. Oh, and some dancing sausages a la ATO's Sesame Street characters, Zeta's rugs, and Theta's bowling pins in the background for good measure.
ZTA: After catching flak for the midriff-baring outfits from last year, they're going with an Amish theme. Hooray crazy sects!
Kappa Kappa Gamma: To use the same skirts for three years in a row, they're adding poodles to the front and using a 50s theme. Never mind the fact that Theta called the following decade.
Pi Phi: After blowing last year's budget on a bigass firetruck for a prop, they're doign a Baylor theme and stealing the statue of Rufus Burleson for a centerpiece. Not sure how that'll work out--chances are, they'll do vertical calesthenics instead of dancing because Rufus wouldn't tolerate that crazy liberal immodest dancing sh!t.
Sing Alliance: Anime, and you know it.
Baylor Fine Arts Coalition?: Some creepy theatre production we've never heard about in the real world. Probably Avenue Q, if I remember my LGBT-themed productions and the last year's fondness for puppets on stage right.
ATO: What someone else said, because they cant keep their damn mouths shut. And they know like, everybody. "Dont' say anything but..." Seriously, even my old ass knows a couple current ATOs.
Sigma Chi: Gives up after last year; gives their spot to the NoZe to fvck sh!t up, blows production budget on booze, hoes, and buying those sweet 80s metal wigs from the costume rental shop to satisfy their replacement act's fetish for fake hair.
Pi Kapp: Since when did they do sing? And why the hell start?

BID. A pox upon my gay son for being dragged to sing with some chick and dragging my tired old ass along with him, that's what.

OK, this is an open question to all the sing-haters though I doubt I will receive a serious response without a homosexual reference:

Why is there such animosity towards SING?

I am assuming a number of folks here will always hate anything theatrical, musical, etc. but what is everyone else's position? I only ask because a number of other schools have similar productions with their greek and non-greek students, but most people at those schools don't go on a bashing-spree even if they don't like the production. I realize that most people that post on these boards are mainly into sports and have the musical prowess of a deaf person, but why not just ignore Sing or these threads rather than petitioning to remove Sing from Baylor.

I know I will be lambasted for this post, but do y'all even have a remotely legitimate argument against having Sing at Baylor other than thinking that it is "gay?"

I think you will find that the answer is there is no true animosity, but rather a bunch of folks jumping on a bandwagon of "I hate Sing b/c it's gay" b/c everyone else on this board does. It's "cool" to hate it on baylorfans.com. ;)

Furthermore, we are one of MANY universities that has a Sing-like program. So, just know that most of the posters on here rail it b/c it's all in good fun, and to be honest, most of their rude comments are hilarious.

The annoying comments (IMHO) are the posters who actually have a frat or sorority in their screen name and get on here and blast other groups even though that's probably not even the group they're in. That IS immature, but alas, I still read.

Baylorbudd,

I think Allie is very right about the people who bash Sing, but there is one more group you should consider. There are a few people on here who really like to see how far they can push people. They think it is funny to see people get mad and make fools of themselves and their groups. That is where a lot of the criticism and "gay" calling is comming from. People just really like to push buttons.

Also, BaylorFans is technically a site geared towards sports. I can see how a lot of the regular members think it is silly that a bunch of people would be comming to their site just for a SING! thread. And, I understand how they could see us as really silly for posting so much meaningless banter about it. It is a giant thread that takes over the "ChitChat" section for about 2 months every year.

Takes up way too much time and too much of an emphasis is placed on it. Plus BU males have a reputation of gayness and SING! doesn't help that any. I never said we shouldn't have it. I have long-advocated that it garners too much publicity, takes up too much time, and BU spends way too much money on it, either directly or indirectly through the organizations' spending. Since it just seems to be getting worse each year, perhaps reining in SING! isn't an option. If not, pull the plug on it.

In the past professors have been pressured by the administration to not schedule exams during the week before SING! and the week during SING! What a bunch of crock. Schedule the exam whenever it works best for the professor's schedule for the class, not to coddle a bunch of dancing Greeks (yes, I know SING! has non-Greek entries these days, but it is still a Greek event).

Take a look at this thread: SING! is weeks away, yet folks want to talk about it already and speculate on who will finish near the top. No wonder we get so fascinated by the Trump/Frump (Rosie) feud.

It was my favorite thing about being in a sorority. The organizations spend their own money for majority of their performances (I thought anyway) and to my knowledge it must bring in a lot of money for the school since the tickets aren't free. If not, the money is going somewhere that helps with student activities I would think, but I'm no expert on where money goes--I thought that kind of stuff belonged on R&P.

Can we not make this some R&P debate? Geez. Just enjoy the "gayness" of sing and don't read the thread if it bothers you that it takes up space on baylorfans. I could hardly blame you for wanting to read it, though, b/c it's funny. Just let it be. Thanks. :)

KOT: Oil Rig

Chi O: School Blues

DDD: 80s
ATO: Wall Street
Delt/ AXO: Mideval Fantasy

Thanks to sicemhorns09- he's pretty close. I haven't ruled out that my friend is just messing with me, but I'm just passing along the info.

None of these things should be a surprise, knowing the groups. Zeta and ADPi/LXA are the only ones I've heard being really good. The people that work at a certain building are pretty impressed with them. Not that this will stop DDD from getting in the top 3. I swear they must have a "Judge Escort Service" within the organization.

:lol: I'm sure these groups are great and all, but even if your friend sees the themes written down somewhere it doesn't mean that he/she has seen the acts. They all practice in random locations all over Waco or perhaps in their rooms now (I don't know, but the point is that they aren't practicing out in the open yet). Now when dress rehearsal starts get back to us. ;)

In short, yes. At other schools, things like Songfest are legitimate competitions that take up a whole lot less time and involve a more healthy rivalry...not a lame thread on the outskirts of the internet where "moderation" is a bad word. A lot of other schools have it take place during Greek Week, or have it as a big karaoke contest in costumes. Not a bad idea, really.

Sing at Baylor seems to dominate the whole half of a semester, which causes a lot of problems both ON and OFF this board. Sure, the usual GDI inhabitants hate the influx of Greek "n00bs" coming in (bonus points if you work some form of "fratty" in there), but it gets worse off the board. If I hear one more b!tch complain to a prof that he/she needs a deadline extension BECAUSE OF SING after I've worked my ass off to manage my time well, get to Sing practices, and do the work beforehand, I'm going to march straight down to Lilley's office and demand that the Sing madness be ended NOW.

Oh well. This thread really shows the worst of the Greek community, so I don't blame anyone for hating it. If you're equating frattacularasticitude with how well you can prance around in tights, you need to re-read the Bible that is fratty.net.

Plus, you have a lot of non-theatre majors and non-music majors acting like they know what "on key" and "good choreography" is.

My friend just might work somewhere that he/she could be in contact with people who DO see the sing acts right now. This is the only way that anyone could know how good they are right now. Think really hard, you'll figure it out.

Actually winning class A is first place and DOES count towards triple crown. Judges choice is who the judges liked, but they did not achieve enough points to win their class. No one will get triple crown this year anyway because Kappa Sig will win intramurals.


you could not be more wrong. if the judges liked it the most...it got the most points...clearly. anyone can win judges award but it is mainly Class A because they have the better float. If someone from Class A wins judges award it is considered the best float and it got more points than the winner of Class A.

Correct. Class A is not the overall winner. Judge's Choice is.

Should you guys start a thread on Float and its judging? ;)

boots09
01-15-07, 12:21 PM
Correct, I am not disputing that. I am saying that the class A winner still qualifies for triple crown and that the winners of each class have the most points in that class. Judges choice is exactly what the name says, the judges favorite. That does not mean it has the most points.

You must be an ATO. Judges award has the most points overall and thus more points than the Class A winner. So if the Judges award float is from Class A then it has more points than the Class A winner...therefore making the Class A winner second place to the Judges award float. Stop trying to support your lame fraternity and just give it up.

Allie Holcomb
01-15-07, 12:43 PM
Actually I am not an ATO. I have been a judge for float before. Judges choice can come from any of the three classes. Therefore, it cannot be based on points because you could have a possible tie for Judges Choice. This is the last I am going to say on this.\

Thank you. :bow: Seriously, thank you.

You can't use a theme for 5 years, aka circus and wall street are not able to be used. Also, Mike can't fire people from Waco Hall, only the Waco Hall manager can. Those guys will post everything about the acts; they do every year.

Oh, and if you don't like sing, don't read the thread.

Sing is really, really gay, but at the end it ends up being fun. I'm just glad my fraternity doesn't take it or anything that seriously.

However, can't wait to see the rugged dirty faces of the KOTs, the almost too well put together makeup of the Fijis and K-Swigs, the funny but at times disgusting lewdness of the SAEs, the complete and utter dorkiness of the ATOs, the ever-so subtle Christian undertones of the Phi Chis, the sluttiness of the AXOs and Thetas, the psychotic dedication of the Tri-Delts, and how Kappa, Pi Phi, and Chi-O will manage to put extremely hot girls in the freakin ugliest, least flattering costumes.

Ahhh....Sing.

Actually winning class A is first place and DOES count towards triple crown. Judges choice is who the judges liked, but they did not achieve enough points to win their class. No one will get triple crown this year anyway because Kappa Sig will win intramurals.


Correct, I am not disputing that. I am saying that the class A winner still qualifies for triple crown and that the winners of each class have the most points in that class. Judges choice is exactly what the name says, the judges favorite. That does not mean it has the most points.


Actually I am not an ATO. I have been a judge for float before. Judges choice can come from any of the three classes. Therefore, it cannot be based on points because you could have a possible tie for Judges Choice. This is the last I am going to say on this.



I know this is a SING! thread, but I hate ignorance.

Colonel Bear- you are incorrect and ignorant of Chamber's scoring of Student Organization's entries into the Baylor University Annual Homecoming Float Competition. And I whole-heartedly doubt that you have ever served as a judge for the Baylor University Annual Homecoming Float Competition based on your ignorance as quoted above.

Maybe this will help: After the judges have viewed all entires, they score each float based on different categories (theme development, safety measures, relevancy to homecoming float oppponent, attention to detail, etc.). The float with the highest score is then named the winner of that respective class. After all three Class division winners have been awarded, the judges then go back and pick an over-all Judge's Choice Award, which is awarded to the float entry that "best captures the Judge's imagination". If perhaps this ends up being a winner of one of the 3 classes, then that entry is bumped up to Judge's Choice and the second place winner is then awarded 1st place in that class.

And just in case you were wondering, an entry that does not win it's class can still win Judge's Choice if the float still captures the "judge's imagination" the most. I do know that Chamber and the Judges place a lot of importance, and weighting of points on safety measures, so if a float was incredible but not as safe as a less attractive float but a safer one, then that float could still end up as the Judge's Choice.

However, the Judge's Choice Award winner is not eligible to win their class as well.

I hope this explanation helps your understanding ColonelBear of the awards process for the Float Competition and removes as much ignorance as possible.

Please post a reply if you have any questions. I would be more than happy to help you understand what you comment on.

Finally, based on this accurate description of the scoring method to Award the various winners of the Baylor University Annual Homecoming Float Competition, it is obvious that AT0 is not eligible for the "Triple Crown" as they were not the over-all winner of the float competition. Class 'A' Winner is nice, but it's not the Judge's Choice Award.

The second document he forwarded me was a draft of a lawsuit from ATO for the apparent copying of their last year's act.

Other themes that were, like, totally sent in to me from some dude who knows somebody and have to b e true baceause I'm a poster on teh internets and that's like, more credible than wikipedia--

Here's the Phi Chi backdrop this year,at least they're getting right to the point: http://members.aol.com/runnen4jesus4/Singing4Jesus2.jpg

Here's SAE's act with nothing new here, it;s like the same as last years act: http://kiat.net/images/miss-it/032406-boobies2.jpg

and here's the fiji act, it speaks 4 itself: http://www.geocities.com/lileksforsenate/flatlanderaward.jpg

KKG- RECESS; opening with the saved by the bell theme and incorporating some WICKED songs, such as "Popular". I am excited to see this act- I have heard some of their costumes could be some what scandalous, but Im sure cute and flirty. There was some speculation about XO and Kappa's act being too similar with the school girl idea, but from what I hear, they are very different.

PI PHI- VIVA LAS VEGAS; This is too cliche of a sing act-- not very creative on their part, but who knows how things will pan out. Sing is always full of surprises! I have heard one of their costumes is just a leotard with a fringe skirt....but I have a hard time believing that was approved, so we shall see. As of right now, the rumor is Pi Phi's have only learned 2 of their dances, and none of their sing chairs actually wanted to be sing chairs in the first place.

TRI-DELTA-- A BUGS LIFE; Their acts are always high energy and very sharp, so I always look forward to what they bring to the table. Seems like a very original, creative idea. Heard that one of their costumes might be a big blade of grass?? We shall see!

CHI OMEGA-- CHOIR GIRLS; After being out of pigskin for 2 years, I know these girls are really going to try and put their best forward-- they have a lot to prove, but from what I have heard on the streets, they are already running their whole show from beginning to end. I am hoping it pays off for these girls this year....all I can really say is that anything can be better than their past 2 acts! geez, what happened there?

THETA-- COOKS; I can not wait to see this act. Thier music choices alone are so fun and theme appropriate. Pour some sugar on me (this years "TOXIC" song...haha), I like bread and butter, Whip It, Sugar Sugar (honey honey), and Im sure a few other fun ones. Cant wait to see what they tie into this one.

ZETA-- A WALK IN THE PARK; This sounds like a cute, cute theme-- but looking at zeta's past, they have a knack for taking a great, cute theme and just not doing it to its full potential. I know some of their songs include the brady bunch movie song "I think I'll go for a walk outside now, the sunshines callin my name..." (very catchy, and Im sure Ill be humming it for days after sing) and "Lets go fly a kite". I hear they will be having actual kites suspended in the air that girls may be dancing with and flying around the stage, and then they all come together to form a really big kite? Sounds like a cute idea, but could be another RUG disaster. We shall see.

KD-- I HAVE NO IDEA, nor do I think it matters.

ADPI/LAMBDA CHI-- I heard "Care Bears" from some one... and I sincerely hope that is a big LIE. that would be utterly AWFUL AND AWKWARD! The only reasoning I heard was that their backdrop was just a bunch of color bursts all over the place.....yikes. From the posts on here, a few of you mentioned "My fair lady" or something to that effect, and I really hope that one is the right one...much better mental picture.

AXO/DELT-- UNHAPPILY NEVER AFTER; Of all the acts I have heard, I am most excited to see how they are developing this one. It is just a big montage of all sorts of fairytale stories, and Im sure, knowing delt, there will be a hilarious section that I am looking forward to seeing. Poor delt, they have been through some crap this week-- apparently they were told last minute that they couldnt do sing anymore? No details on that one, but I hope they can because that would suck for AXO and all the work they have put in together.

ATO-- ARCADE; I know this one FOR SURE (whoever said that they were Wall Street, and New York New York for sure was VERY wrong) One of their songs is Pinball wizard from The Who, and a couple of their characters are Mr. and Mrs. Pacman. Knowing these guys, they will take this one and run with it to a point that we can not imagine til we see it in person.

FIJI- Havent heard much-- but the goldminer thing sounds cool- I cant wait to see what they do with it.

KOT-- OIL RIGS; I think these guys order vats of soot each year to paint onto each of their costumes and faces-- very original...or not. But hey, they stay consistant. Since every year they bring in new judges, noone that matters would know that they did the same moves with the same costume the previous 35 years, but I am sure they are informed that they are Baylor's baby and they MUST go to pigskin. But usually, it is well deserved. I am excited to see those boys stomp their boots on the stage again this year-- they usually have a good one.

PHI CHI-- THE GOOD SAMARITAN; Obviously, pulling the "god card" again, but like I said previously with KOT- why change what works for you year after year. Although, I am never as impressed with phi chi as I am with kot, at least not since their puppet act (which kot did in the late 70's)...anyway, this act is set in a big city-- their backdrop has, from what I hear, a street with shops and buildings, and their props are brick buildings/homes, etc. Sounds like a guy down on his luck will be brought to his feet by "the good samaritans" (known as the phi chi's...) and saved during 2 minutes of slow, drawn out singing and no dancing on stage. EXCITING. But, hopefully they can pull this off and be mildly entertaining.

KAPPA SIG-- GARBAGE MEN; For some reason, I sense a garbage can/STOMP type dance in there somewhere (if you have seen the off-broadway show STOMP, then you know what I am talking about) I wouldnt be surprised if Anthony came back, but he graduated so I dont know if he will be in it, or if he just choreographed it all. We shall see, but Im sure it will be a good show, with some great singing.

SAE-- I have no idea, but I am sure something put together last minute that will be very entertaining, funny and slightly crossing the line. I cant wait!

SIGMA CHI-- (repeat previous statement) Im sure this one will be funny as well. I tend to like most of the acts, but the ones where they dont take themselves too seriously are always a nice break from some of the other, more competitve acts.

PI KAPPA PHI-- POOL HALL; This is their first time ever doing SING and I know they are going to bring a great effort to the table. Not everyone can be an "ATO" where they get second place their first year, so Im not expecting too much from these guys, but they have a lot of cool aspects in their act, such as a few full size pool tables, pool cues, a big bar and tables all on stage. I am excited to see the new-bies show us what they got!

SING ALLIANCE-- I dont know this one either. Im sure it will be another "nice try" and they will get into pigskin once every 10 years... they just got lucky last year. Good luck this year though! You never know how sing can end up.

BFAC- THEY DROPPED OUT OF SING!!! This is a fact-- they just couldnt handle it I guess, but they are for sure no longer doing it.

I think that is all 19 acts! There were a couple I did not know, so feel free to fill in what I missed. I am 99% sure of everything I do know though-- but feel free to correct me!
Looks like a great show to me, and I am so excited SING is finally here! Its honestly one of my favorite things about Baylor.

Although, I am never as impressed with phi chi as I am with kot, at least not since their puppet act (which kot did in the late 70's)...anyway, this act is set in a big city-- their backdrop has, from what I hear, a street with shops and buildings, and their props are brick buildings/homes, etc. Sounds like a guy down on his luck will be brought to his feet by "the good samaritans" (known as the phi chi's...) and saved during 2 minutes of slow, drawn out singing and no dancing on stage. EXCITING. But, hopefully they can pull this off and be mildly entertaining.

KAPPA SIG-- GARBAGE MEN; For some reason, I sense a garbage can/STOMP type dance in there somewhere (if you have seen the off-broadway show STOMP, then you know what I am talking about) I wouldnt be surprised if Anthony came back, but he graduated so I dont know if he will be in it, or if he just choreographed it all. We shall see, but Im sure it will be a good show, with some great singing.

SAE-- I have no idea, but I am sure something put together last minute that will be very entertaining, funny and slightly crossing the line. I cant wait!

SIGMA CHI-- (repeat previous statement) Im sure this one will be funny as well. I tend to like most of the acts, but the ones where they dont take themselves too seriously are always a nice break from some of the other, more competitve acts.

PI KAPPA PHI-- POOL HALL; This is their first time ever doing SING and I know they are going to bring a great effort to the table. Not everyone can be an "ATO" where they get second place their first year, so Im not expecting too much from these guys, but they have a lot of cool aspects in their act, such as a few full size pool tables, pool cues, a big bar and tables all on stage. I am excited to see the new-bies show us what they got!

SING ALLIANCE-- I dont know this one either. Im sure it will be another "nice try" and they will get into pigskin once every 10 years... they just got lucky last year. Good luck this year though! You never know how sing can end up.

BFAC- THEY DROPPED OUT OF SING!!! This is a fact-- they just couldnt handle it I guess, but they are for sure no longer doing it.

I think that is all 19 acts! There were a couple I did not know, so feel free to fill in what I missed. I am 99% sure of everything I do know though-- but feel free to correct me!
Looks like a great show to me, and I am so excited SING is finally here! Its honestly one of my favorite things about Baylor.

FIJI's is 20's baseball
Sing Alliance is Peter Pan or at least a song from it
One of ADPi's songs is "you're the one that I want"

Pretty sure KOT is not going oil riggs, but is actually doing Railroad workers. Big difference I know.

KXA is Pajama party?? Sleepover, something to that effect

Fiji is 20s Baseball, close to a workout theme I suppose

Group singing is supposed to be a much bigger deal this year than usual, so it will be interesting to see what groups stand out, and for that matter can handle an act full of singing.

at this point in the game, no one really knows what anyone is doing. i have heard at least 2 variations on everyone's theme (example, train's or oil rigs?; baseball or workout?). some sources may be reliable, but you never truely know. after a few more open stages and rehersals, then people will get them down.

KKG- RECESS; opening with the saved by the bell theme and incorporating some WICKED songs, such as "Popular". I am excited to see this act- I have heard some of their costumes could be some what scandalous, but Im sure cute and flirty. There was some speculation about XO and Kappa's act being too similar with the school girl idea, but from what I hear, they are very different.

PI PHI- VIVA LAS VEGAS; This is too cliche of a sing act-- not very creative on their part, but who knows how things will pan out. Sing is always full of surprises! I have heard one of their costumes is just a leotard with a fringe skirt....but I have a hard time believing that was approved, so we shall see. As of right now, the rumor is Pi Phi's have only learned 2 of their dances, and none of their sing chairs actually wanted to be sing chairs in the first place.

TRI-DELTA-- A BUGS LIFE; Their acts are always high energy and very sharp, so I always look forward to what they bring to the table. Seems like a very original, creative idea. Heard that one of their costumes might be a big blade of grass?? We shall see!

CHI OMEGA-- CHOIR GIRLS; After being out of pigskin for 2 years, I know these girls are really going to try and put their best forward-- they have a lot to prove, but from what I have heard on the streets, they are already running their whole show from beginning to end. I am hoping it pays off for these girls this year....all I can really say is that anything can be better than their past 2 acts! geez, what happened there?

THETA-- COOKS; I can not wait to see this act. Thier music choices alone are so fun and theme appropriate. Pour some sugar on me (this years "TOXIC" song...haha), I like bread and butter, Whip It, Sugar Sugar (honey honey), and Im sure a few other fun ones. Cant wait to see what they tie into this one.

ZETA-- A WALK IN THE PARK; This sounds like a cute, cute theme-- but looking at zeta's past, they have a knack for taking a great, cute theme and just not doing it to its full potential. I know some of their songs include the brady bunch movie song "I think I'll go for a walk outside now, the sunshines callin my name..." (very catchy, and Im sure Ill be humming it for days after sing) and "Lets go fly a kite". I hear they will be having actual kites suspended in the air that girls may be dancing with and flying around the stage, and then they all come together to form a really big kite? Sounds like a cute idea, but could be another RUG disaster. We shall see.

KD-- I HAVE NO IDEA, nor do I think it matters.

ADPI/LAMBDA CHI-- I heard "Care Bears" from some one... and I sincerely hope that is a big LIE. that would be utterly AWFUL AND AWKWARD! The only reasoning I heard was that their backdrop was just a bunch of color bursts all over the place.....yikes. From the posts on here, a few of you mentioned "My fair lady" or something to that effect, and I really hope that one is the right one...much better mental picture.

AXO/DELT-- UNHAPPILY NEVER AFTER; Of all the acts I have heard, I am most excited to see how they are developing this one. It is just a big montage of all sorts of fairytale stories, and Im sure, knowing delt, there will be a hilarious section that I am looking forward to seeing. Poor delt, they have been through some crap this week-- apparently they were told last minute that they couldnt do sing anymore? No details on that one, but I hope they can because that would suck for AXO and all the work they have put in together.

ATO-- ARCADE; I know this one FOR SURE (whoever said that they were Wall Street, and New York New York for sure was VERY wrong) One of their songs is Pinball wizard from The Who, and a couple of their characters are Mr. and Mrs. Pacman. Knowing these guys, they will take this one and run with it to a point that we can not imagine til we see it in person.

FIJI- Havent heard much-- but the goldminer thing sounds cool- I cant wait to see what they do with it.

KOT-- OIL RIGS; I think these guys order vats of soot each year to paint onto each of their costumes and faces-- very original...or not. But hey, they stay consistant. Since every year they bring in new judges, noone that matters would know that they did the same moves with the same costume the previous 35 years, but I am sure they are informed that they are Baylor's baby and they MUST go to pigskin. But usually, it is well deserved. I am excited to see those boys stomp their boots on the stage again this year-- they usually have a good one.

PHI CHI-- THE GOOD SAMARITAN; Obviously, pulling the "god card" again, but like I said previously with KOT- why change what works for you year after year. Although, I am never as impressed with phi chi as I am with kot, at least not since their puppet act (which kot did in the late 70's)...anyway, this act is set in a big city-- their backdrop has, from what I hear, a street with shops and buildings, and their props are brick buildings/homes, etc. Sounds like a guy down on his luck will be brought to his feet by "the good samaritans" (known as the phi chi's...) and saved during 2 minutes of slow, drawn out singing and no dancing on stage.

You must be a sound tech or something. Or maybe your name is Mike Reimer and this is your two month span every year to act like you're somebody. It helps you sleep at night after all those years of elementary kick ball and getting picked last. Either way you're spot on.

Actually winning class A is first place and DOES count towards triple crown. Judges choice is who the judges liked, but they did not achieve enough points to win their class. No one will get triple crown this year anyway because Kappa Sig will win intramurals.

Having been in Chamber and despite never having been in charge of floats, i'm pretty sure that judges choice gets the most prize money, and is who has the most points over all. The award is there so that groups from a class B or class C entry that looks really sweet could in theory beat the more expensive floats.

In an unrelated note KOT doesn't actually buy their floats despite the rumors, ATO needs to learn to play with fire and EVERYONE needs to just suck it up and pay a tow truck to tow their damn floats rather than break some poor kids truck. (this year i think we had like 1 self propelled float actually make it under their own power to the end and not explode, destroy a transmission light on fire or any combination of those...)

Delt's charter is going under national review. They can only have 15 members in SING and they cannot take a pledge class. They have lost 3 advisors in the past year and a half. They are down to about 30 members in the chapter. They sure sound like they know what they are doing.

Agreed with most of the above statement. Delt has confused its priorities lately (Drinking is still number one). However, it still says alot that a fraternity can build a winning float and stay somewhat competitive in SING. If you wanna just look gay on stage and suck at something manly like float, then go Fiji. If you wanna build some funny/good floats and be worthless at other things be a Beta, EX, or SAE.

KOT and ATO are the only frats that excel in everything they do, as much trash as everyone likes to talk about them. Delt could be that way if they sobered up...

You talk about "brotherhood" when your brotherhood is signing a piece of paper and saying you are an ATZero.

Boots, say what you will about frats but they are all gay. Fiji touches each other for god's sake. At least KOT and ATO attempt to be good at other things while they nibble on the other side of the pond for four years. Now, I may not know much but wouldn't most fraternities get started that way, including your beloved Delt (which you must be and I guess you're pissed they are taking away your identity).

Sounds like you already had your nuts sawed off in the name of brotherhood. Maybe one day you can see a REAL fraternity that doesn't have to torture people to force them to be their brothers.

A REAL fraternity isn't one who beats the hell out of its new guys for fun, but a pledgeship of somekind is neccesary to figure who really wants to be there, as well for them to respect its current members, the history of the fraternity, and to really gain trust within their own pledge class. Without that kind of bonding you are a math club with greek letters on your chest. Congratulations on being a disgrace to american fraternity system.

ATO is the laughing stock of the greek community. Nobody gives a **** about sing or float. You guys are a bunch of wusses, depledges, negs, and other sorts of worthless dorkiness. A fraternity should be judged by the quality of its members, a category in which you are about dead last.

You know, I will admit that when we first started we had people that had left other groups. Obviously, that is no longer the case because those people have graduated. Does that not speak worse for your group though? Somebody thought you were so awful that they had to drop all associations with you.

I wonder how EVERY fraternity started at Baylor. It could be that the guys who started it did not like the other fraternities and started a new one. So no matter what fraternity you are in, you started just like us. The only difference with ATO is that we are a returning chapter that was at Baylor long before you were. In 20 years it will not matter who started ATO.


Maybe you are right, in 20 years in won't matter who started yalls chapter, but that doesn't mean the guys will change. Your philosophy is being a random group of guys that wear the same letters. If they don't learn respect for the frat, their pledge brothers, or the other members, then it doesn't matter who started it. Right now, pledgeship, not hazing, is important. Otherwise you are doing exactly what the outside people think, buying friends. As much hell as fiji gets for acting gay, they at least know each other and earn their respect. I know that when I got in, I knew everyone and felt like i was part of a family. That isn't the way it is when you sign a bid card and get initiated... If you wanna be part of a group, go ATO or someone like that. If you wanna being in a brotherhood and Family, rush a real fraternity.

So Delt's getting kicked off campus for having circle jerks for pledge events and ATO took a bunch of weird asses to begin with but it looks like they're starting to recover from that. Every fraternity has "that guy."

Nobody cares on this thread, though. I want to hear sing smack damnit and I want to hear it now!

I LOVE YOU.

Seriously, do you think some AT0 is gonna come on here and tell everyone the intimate details of their pledgeship process in defense? No. Because a) that's private fraternity business and b) nobody else on the singaling thread gives a fruitcakealing about it.

emphasis on point b b1tches. move on to sing smack. If BYX won't do pillow fight, who would? it definitely sounds like a SAE or Sigma Chi kind of theme, and I'd love to see it.

Of the Beginning of Political Societies.

Sec. 95. MEN being, as has been said, by nature, all free, equal, and independent, no one can be put out of this estate, and subjected to the political power of another, without his own consent. The only way whereby any one divests himself of his natural liberty, and puts on the bonds of civil society, is by agreeing with other men to join and unite into a community for their comfortable, safe, and peaceable living one amongst another, in a secure enjoyment of their properties, and a greater security against any, that are not of it. This any number of men may do, because it injures not the freedom of the rest; they are left as they were in the liberty of the state of nature. When any number of men have so consented to make one community or government, they are thereby presently incorporated, and make one body politic, wherein the majority have a right to act and conclude the rest.

Sec. 96. For when any number of men have, by the consent of every individual, made a community, they have thereby made that community one body, with a power to act as one body, which is only by the will and determination of the majority: for that which acts any community, being only the consent of the individuals of it, and it being necessary to that which is one body to move one way; it is necessary the body should move that way whither the greater force carries it, which is the consent of the majority: or else it is impossible it should act or continue one body, one community, which the consent of every individual that united into it, agreed that it should; and so every one is bound by that consent to be concluded by the majority. And therefore we see, that in assemblies, impowered to act by positive laws, where no number is set by that positive law which impowers them, the act of the majority passes for the act of the whole, and of course determines, as having, by the law of nature and reason, the power of the whole.

Sec. 97. And thus every man, by consenting with others to make one body politic under one government, puts himself under an obligation, to every one of that society, to submit to the determination of the majority, and to be concluded by it; or else this original compact, whereby he with others incorporates into one society, would signify nothing, and be no compact, if he be left free, and under no other ties than he was in before in the state of nature. For what appearance would there be of any compact? what new engagement if he were no farther tied by any decrees of the society, than he himself thought fit, and did actually consent to? This would be still as great a liberty, as he himself had before his compact, or any one else in the state of nature hath, who may submit himself, and consent to any acts of it if he thinks fit.

Sec. 98. For if the consent of the majority shall not, in reason, be received as the act of the whole, and conclude every individual; nothing but the consent of every individual can make any thing to be the act of the whole: but such a consent is next to impossible ever to be had, if we consider the infirmities of health, and avocations of business, which in a number, though much less than that of a common-wealth, will necessarily keep many away from the public assembly. To which if we add the variety of opinions, and contrariety of interests, which unavoidably happen in all collections of men, the coming into society upon such terms would be only like Cato's coming into the theatre, only to go out again. Such a constitution as this would make the mighty Leviathan of a shorter duration, than the feeblest creatures, and not let it outlast the day it was bom in: which cannot be supposed, till we can think, that rational creatures should desire and constitute societies only to be dissolved: for where the majority cannot conclude the rest, there they cannot act as one body, and consequently will be immediately dissolved again.

Sec. 99. Whosoever therefore out of a state of nature unite into a community, must be understood to give up all the power, necessary to the ends for which they unite into society, to the majority of the community, unless they expresly agreed in any number greater than the majority. And this is done by barely agreeing to unite into one political society, which is all the compact that is, or needs be, between the individuals, that enter into, or make up a commonwealth. And thus that, which begins and actually constitutes any political society, is nothing but the consent of any number of freemen capable of a majority to unite and incorporate into such a society. And this is that, and that only, which did, or could give beginning to any lawful government in the world.

Sec. 100. To this I find two objections made.

First, That there are no instances to be found in story, of a company of men independent, and equal one amongst another, that met together, and in this way began and set up a government.

Secondly, It is impossible of right, that men should do so, because all men being born under government, they are to submit to that, and are not at liberty to begin a new one.

Sec. 101. To the first there is this to answer, That it is not at all to be wondered, that history gives us but a very little account of men, that lived together in the state of nature. The inconveniences of that condition, and the love and want of society, no sooner brought any number of them together, but they presently united and incorporated, if they designed to continue together. And if we may not suppose men ever to have been in the state of nature, because we hear not much of them in such a state, we may as well suppose the armies of Salmanasser or Xerxes were never children, because we hear little of them, till they were men, and imbodied in armies. Government is every where antecedent to records, and letters seldom come in amongst a people till a long continuation of civil society has, by other more necessary arts, provided for their safety, ease, and plenty: and then they begin to look after the history of their founders, and search into their original, when they have outlived the memory of it: for it is with commonwealths as with particular persons, they are commonly ignorant of their own births and infancies: and if they know any thing of their original, they are beholden for it, to the accidental records that others have kept of it. And those that we have, of the beginning of any polities in the world, excepting that of the Jews, where God himself immediately interposed, and which favours not at all paternal dominion, are all either plain instances of such a beginning as I have mentioned, or at least have manifest footsteps of it.

Sec. 102. He must shew a strange inclination to deny evident matter of fact, when it agrees not with his hypothesis, who will not allow, that shew a strange inclination to deny evident matter of fact, when it agrees not with his hypothesis, who will not allow, that the beginning of Rome and Venice were by the uniting together of several men free and independent one of another, amongst whom there was no natural superiority or subjection. And if Josephus Acosta's word may be taken, he tells us, that in many parts of America there was no government at all. There are great and apparent conjectures, says he, that these men, speaking of those of Peru, for a long time had neither kings nor commonwealths, but lived in troops, as they do this day in Florida, the Cheriquanas, those of Brazil, and many other nations, which have no certain kings, but as occasion is offered, in peace or war, they choose their captains as they please, 1. i. c. 25. If it be said, that every man there was born subject to his father, or the head of his family; that the subjection due from a child to a father took not away his freedom of uniting into what political society he thought fit, has been already proved. But be that as it will, these men, it is evident, were actually free; and whatever superiority some politicians now would place in any of them, they themselves claimed it not, but by consent were all equal, till by the same consent they set rulers over themselves. So that their politic societies all began from a voluntary union, and the mutual agreement of men freely acting in the choice of their governors, and forms of government.

Sec. 103. And I hope those who went away from Sparta with Palantus, mentioned by Justin, 1. iii. c. 4. will be allowed to have been freemen independent one of another, and to have set up a government over themselves, by their own consent. Thus I have given several examples, out of history, of people free and in the state of nature, that being met together incorporated and began a commonwealth. And if the want of such instances be an argument to prove that government were not, nor could not be so begun, I suppose the contenders for paternal empire were better let it alone, than urge it against natural liberty: for if they can give so many instances, out of history, of governments begun upon paternal right, I think (though at best an argument from what has been, to what should of right be, has no great force) one might, without any great danger, yield them the cause. But if I might advise them in the case, they would do well not to search too much into the original of governments, as they have begun de facto, lest they should find, at the foundation of most of them, something very little favourable to the design they promote, and such a power as they contend for.

Sec. 104. But to conclude, reason being plain on our side, that men are naturally free, and the examples of history shewing, that the governments of the world, that were begun in peace, had their beginning laid on that foundation, and were made by the consent of the people; there can be little room for doubt, either where the right is, or what has been the opinion, or practice of mankind, about the first erecting of governments.

Sec. 105. I will not deny, that if we look back as far as history will direct us, towards the original of commonwealths, we shall generally find them under the government and administration of one man. And I am also apt to believe, that where a family was numerous enough to subsist by itself, and continued entire together, without mixing with others, as it often happens, where there is much land, and few people, the government commonly began in the father: for the father having, by the law of nature, the same power with every man else to punish, as he thought fit, any offences against that law, might thereby punish his transgressing children, even when they were men, and out of their pupilage; and they were very likely to submit to his punishment, and all join with him against the offender, in their turns, giving him thereby power to execute his sentence against any transgression, and so in effect make him the law-maker, and governor over all that remained in conjunction with his family. He was fittest to be trusted; paternal affection secured their property and interest under his care; and the custom of obeying him, in their childhood, made it easier to submit to him, rather than to any other. If therefore they must have one to rule them, as government is hardly to be avoided amongst men that live together; who so likely to be the man as he that was their common father; unless negligence, cruelty, or any other defect of mind or body made him unfit for it? But when either the father died, and left his next heir, for want of age, wisdom, courage, or any other qualities, less fit for rule; or where several families met, and consented to continue together; there, it is not to be doubted, but they used their natural freedom, to set up him, whom they judged the ablest, and most likely, to rule well over them. Conformable hereunto we find the people of America, who (living out of the reach of the conquering swords, and spreading domination of the two great empires of Peru and Mexico) enjoyed their own natural freedom, though, caeteris paribus, they commonly prefer the heir of their deceased king; yet if they find him any way weak, or uncapable, they pass him by, and set up the stoutest and bravest man for their ruler.

Sec. 106. Thus, though looking back as far as records give us any account of peopling the world, and the history of nations, we commonly find the government to be in one hand; yet it destroys not that which I affirm, viz. that the beginning of politic society depends upon the consent of the individuals, to join into, and make one society; who, when they are thus incorporated, might set up what form of government they thought fit. But this having given occasion to men to mistake, and think, that by nature government was monarchical, and belonged to the father, it may not be amiss here to consider, why people in the beginning generally pitched upon this form, which though perhaps the father's pre-eminency might, in the first institution of some commonwealths, give a rise to, and place in the beginning, the power in one hand; yet it is plain that the reason, that continued the form of government in a single person, was not any regard, or respect to paternal authority; since all petty monarchies, that is, almost all monarchies, near their original, have been commonly, at least upon occasion, elective.

The Gay Science




Excerpts


PREFACE FOR THE SECOND EDITION

This book may need more than one preface, and in the end there would still remain room for doubt whether anyone who had never lived through similar experiences could be brought closer to the experience of this book by means of prefaces. It seems to be written in the language of the wind that thaws ice and snow: high spirits, unrest, contradiction, and April weather are present in it, and one is instantly reminded no less of the proximity of winter than of the triumph over the winter that is coming, must come, and perhaps has already come.

Gratitude pours forth continually, as if the unexpected had just happened—the gratitude of a convalescent—for convalescence was unexpected. "Gay Science": that signifies the saturnalia of a spirit who has patiently resisted a terrible, long pressure—patiently, severely, coldly, without submitting, but also without hope—and who is now all at once attacked by hope, the hope for health, and the intoxication of convalescence. Is it any wonder that in the process much that is unreasonable and foolish comes to light, much playful tenderness that is lavished even on problems that have a prickly hide and are not made to be caressed and enticed? This whole book is nothing but a bit of merry-making after long privation and powerlessness, the rejoicing of strength that is returning, of a reawakened faith in a tomorrow and the day after tomorrow, of a sudden sense and anticipation of a future, of impending adventures, of seas that are open again, of goals that are permitted again, believed again. And what did not lie behind me then! This stretch of desert, exhaustion, disbelief, icing up in the midst of youth, this interlude of old age at the wrong time, this tyranny of pain even excelled by the tyranny of pride that refused the conclusions of pain—and conclusions are consolations—this radical retreat into solitude as a self-defense against a contempt for men that had become pathologically clairvoyant—this determined self-limitation to what was bitter, harsh, and hurtful to know, prescribed by the nausea that had gradually developed out of an incautious and pampering spiritual diet, called romanticism—oh, who could reexperience all of this? But if anyone could, he would surely pardon more than a little foolishness, exuberance, and "gay science"—for example, the handful of songs that have now been added to this book—songs in which a poet makes fun of all poets in a way that may be hard to forgive. Alas, it is not only the poets and their beautiful "lyrical sentiments" on whom the resurrected author has to vent his sarcasm: who knows what victim he is looking for, what monster of material for parody will soon attract him? "Incipit tragoedia" we read at the end of this awesomely aweless book. Beware! Something downright wicked and malicious is announced here: incipit parodia, no doubt.

2.

But let us leave Herr Nietzsche: what is it to us that Herr Nietzsche has become well again?

For a psychologist there are few questions that are as attractive as that concerning the relation of health and philosophy, and if he should himself become ill, he will bring all of his scientific curiosity into his illness. For assuming that one is a person, one necessarily also has the philosophy that belongs to that person; but there is a big difference. In some it is their deprivations that philosophize; in others, their riches and strengths. The former need their philosophy, whether it be a prop, a sedative, medicine, redemption, elevation, or self-alienation. For the latter it is merely a beautiful luxury—in the best cases, the voluptuousness of a triumphant gratitude that eventually still has to inscribe itself in cosmic letters on the heaven of concepts. But in the former case, which is more common, when it is distress that philosophizes, as is the case with all sick thinkers—and perhaps sick thinkers are more numerous in the history of philosophy—what will become of the thought itself when it is subjected to the pressure of sickness? This is the question that concerns the psychologist, and here an experiment is possible. Just as a traveler may resolve, before he calmly abandons himself to sleep, to wake up at a certain time, we philosophers, if we should become sick, surrender for a while to sickness, body and soul—and, as it were, shut our eyes to ourselves. And as the traveler knows that something is not asleep, that something counts the hours and will wake him up, we, too, know that the decisive moment will find us awake, and that something will leap forward then and catch the spirit in the act: I mean, in its weakness or repentance or resignation or hardening or gloom, and whatever other names there are for the pathological states of the spirit that on healthy days are opposed by the pride of the spirit (for the old saying is still valid: "the proud spirit, peacock, and horse are the three proudest beasts on earth").

After such self-questioning, self-temptation, one acquires a subtler eye for all philosophizing to date; one can infer better than before the involuntary detours, side lanes, resting places, and sunny places of thought to which suffering thinkers are led and misled on account of their suffering; for now one knows whether the sick body and its needs unconsciously urge, push, and lure the spirit—toward the sun, stillness, madness, patience, medicine, balm in some sense. Every philosophy that ranks peace above war, every ethic with a negative definition of happiness, every metaphysics and physics that knows some finale, some final state of some sort, every predominant aesthetic or religious craving for some Apart, Beyond, Outside, Above, permits the question whether it was not sickness that inspired the philosopher. The unconscious disguise of physiological needs under the cloaks of the objective, ideal, purely spiritual goes to frightening lengths—and often I have asked myself whether, taking a large view, philosophy has not been merely an interpretation of the body and a misunderstanding of the body.

Behind the highest value judgments that have hitherto guided the history of thought, there are concealed misunderstandings of the physical constitution—of individuals or classes or even whole races. All those bold insanities of metaphysics, especially answers to the question about the value of existence, may always be considered first of all as the symptoms of certain bodies. And if such world affirmations or world negations tout court lack any grain of significance when measured scientifically, they are the more valuable for the historian and psychologist as hints or symptoms of the body, of its success or failure, its plenitude, power, and autocracy in history, or of its frustrations, weariness, impoverishment, its premonitions of the end, its will to the end.

I am still waiting for a philosophical physician in the exceptional sense of that word—one who has to pursue the problem of the total health of a people, time, race or of humanity—to muster the courage to push my suspicion to its limits and to risk the proposition: what was at stake in all philosophizing hitherto was not at all "truth" but something else—let us say, health, future, growth, power, life.

The Balrogs were originally Maiar (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maia_%28Middle-earth%29), of the same order as Sauron (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sauron), Saruman (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saruman) and Gandalf (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gandalf), but they became seduced by Morgoth (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Morgoth), who corrupted them to his service in the days of his splendour before the making of Arda. During the First Age (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/First_Age), they were among the most feared of Melkor's forces. When his fortress of Utumno (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Utumno) was destroyed by the Valar (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vala_%28Middle-earth%29), they fled and lurked in the pits of Angband (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Angband_%28Middle-earth%29).

As Maiar, Balrogs would have originally had the ability to change their shape at will, and to move "unclad in the raiment of the world" meaning invisible and without form. However, it seems that Melkor (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Melkor), Sauron, and their assorted Ainur (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ainu_%28Middle-earth%29) servants could lose parts of this ability to change shape. At the very least, we know that Melkor became locked into the "tyrant of Utumno", gigantic and terrible, and he even seems unable to heal basic wounds, his hands and forehead remained burned by the Silmarils (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Silmarils) and his face and foot wounds never healed after the duel with Fingolfin (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fingolfin). Sauron was never again able to take a fair-seeming form after his original material body was lost in the flooding of Númenor.

While it is not specifically stated, it seems that Balrogs were at least partially fixed in their fiery demonic forms in the same way. Even so, Tolkien describes them as "spirits" of fire and "great shadows." As a result, it is uncertain whether the Balrogs were somewhat ethereal or if they could still become so.

The Balrogs were first encountered by the Elves (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elf_%28Middle-earth%29) during the Dagor-nuin-Giliath (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dagor-nuin-Giliath) in the First Age. After the great victory of the Noldor (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Noldor) over Morgoth's Orcs (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orc_%28Middle-earth%29), Fëanor (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/F%C3%ABanor) pressed on towards Angband, but the Balrogs came against him. He was mortally wounded by Gothmog (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gothmog), Lord of Balrogs, the only Balrog known by name. Though his sons arrived shortly thereafter and fought off the demons, Fëanor died of his wounds, and his spirit departed for the Halls of Mandos (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mandos).

Later, during and after the fall of Gondolin (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gondolin), two Balrogs fell at the hands of Elves. Ecthelion of the Fountain (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ecthelion_of_the_Fountain) fought Gothmog in the square of the king, where they both perished. Additionally, Glorfindel (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glorfindel) fought a Balrog who waylaid the escape from the fallen Gondolin; both perished in the struggle after falling off a mountainside.

I don't know, but I'm positive my Balrog is bigger than yours.

AGEOFAPOCALYPSE

The size of Balrogs is also a matter of dispute. For example, in his notes, Tolkien states:

"[the Balrog] strode to the fissure, no more than man-high yet terror seemed to go before it."'The History of Middle-earth Volume VII (The Treason of Isengard), X The Mines of Moria II: The Bridge However, this draft was rejected, and such a statement does not appear in the published version of The Lord of the Rings. The published version actually states:

"What it was could not be seen: it was like a great shadow, in the middle of which was a dark form, of man-shape, maybe, yet greater; and a power and terror seemed to be in it and to go before it."The Lord of the Rings Book II, Chapter 5 "The Bridge of Khazad-dûm". Additionally, Tolkien states that:

"suddenly it [the Balrog] drew itself up to a great height, and its wings were spread from wall to wall..."The Lord of the Rings Book II, Chapter 5 "The Bridge of Khazad-dûm". These two statements made in the actual works suggest that they were greater in size than men.

However, in The Lord of the Rings, Tolkien also notes that the entrance to the Chamber of Mazarbul was sized so that

"...orcs one after another leaped into the chamber." and "...clustered in the doorway."The Lord of the Rings Book II, Chapter 5 "The Bridge of Khazad-dûm". While some contend that such a doorway seems unlikely to be passable for a creature much larger than man-sized without destroying the passage, others interpret this as a large number of orcs passing through a particularly large passageway, through which a Balrog could fit.[citation needed (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Citing_sources)]

Also, some assume that Balrogs, as "spirits of fire" "swathed in shadows", were ethereal in having no definitive solid matter at any given time. This and a similar view is surely in support of the idea that Balrogs could possibly retain some of their shapeshifting abilities as Maiar, or at least could walk the earth without raiment as shadow, flame, or otherwise. As a result, it is quite possible that an ethereal spirit made of fire and shadow could pass through even a narrow opening, regardless of whether the ethereal spirit was immense.

There is nothing in the works of Tolkien to dispute the possible ethereal make-up of Balrogs or that they at least had the power to become so. Rather, Tolkien often refers to them as "spirits" or "great shadows"; both of which, if taken literally, would have no trouble passing through openings be they large or small. Furthermore, there is nothing to wholly dispute the Balrogs' initial shapeshifting abilities which they would have had as Maiar. Sauron, also a Maia, often assumed multiple physical forms through the Ages, including that of a great wolf, a vampire, a dragon[citation needed (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Citing_sources)], a handsome man, and finally a large terrible warrior (at which point he had lost the ability to change his shape). Similarly, the Balrogs could also have retained some of their ability to walk without raiment in assuming the form of both shadow and flame.

Wow...this thread has derailed in shocking fashion. Although not too shocking since every year the Sing! thread disintegrates into a "ATO is gay!" bash-a-thon. At least its consistent, gotta admire that. Or hate it with a passion.

I always enjoyed float more anyway

Nerd Moment:

Pledging actually has a very strong anthropological argument. The process of joining a fraternity or sorority is what is known as a "rite of passage". It is during liminality (the transition stage of the rite, or in this case, the pledging period) that communitas is formed. Communitas is the intense community spirit and feeling of solidarity that is shared by a group of people going through a rite of passage together. Smoothing over the pledging process does not strengthen the solidarity of the pledge class, it only weakens it.

My father and his pledge brothers might have suffered unknown atrocities during Hell Week while they were pledging back in the 70's but, to this day, his pledge brothers are his best friends in the world. They were the groomsmen in his wedding and they are the godfathers of his children.

P.S. They were ATO's at UT, back when they still drank...a lot

Why is everyone on her such a$$holes?? get over your petty differences. We all either attend Baylor or did attend Baylor, so why dont we focus on Baylor, or how much TAMU sucks, and not fight between groups. If you guys want to argue about whos the better fraternity start a new thread and leave this one alone.

Did You Know That The Most Common Reaction To This Thread Was A Shart?


A shart is a small, unintended defecation that occurs when one relaxes the anal sphincter to fart. Shart is a portmanteau word that blends **** and fart. Shart is used both as a noun and a verb. "I sharted at the shindig over the weekend and had to skedaddle back home to reno the undies." In loose slang use, shart also occurs as a transitive verb: "I sharted my pants."

One farts too forcefully so that a small piece of excrement is expelled. It may stick to your underpants or stay lodged, caught—as it were—within the constrictive grip of contracting anal sphincters. Amateur fecologists recommend special caution when forcing flatulence, especially if one has not defecated in the last ten hours.


See more samples of the usage of shart at www.urbandictionary.com (http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=shart)




2.



There is a secondary coinage in which the same form has a different meaning.

**** + art = shart

"That humongous bird statue in front of city hall is, like, total shart."

The last time I sharted was when an ATO and I decided to compare Balrogs. His was so tiny I just couldn't stop laughing and in turn sharted. My Balrog is huge and will make all of yours bow down and pay homage.

Since this is a Sing thread....geez you bunch of losers....stay on topic....all the frats really do suck at sing besides Ksig, KOT, and ATO. I think Chamo from I love you New York should be one of the celebrity judges this year. That would be hilarious!


Excuse me, it is called I LOVE NEW YORK....not I love you new york. Geez, get it right. It is only the single best show on tv...give it the respect it deserves.
:lol: But yes, I agree it would be quite hilarious if Chamo could be a celebrity judge for sing... he would be a little more useful doing that than his pointless roll on that show.

So back to sing....

Kappa Sig---haven't heard much other than waste management and haven't heard much about that

Pi Phi - Viva las vegas, with a little goin to the chapel in the middle

Kappa- How kids get popular at recess, songs like "popular" from wicked and some other random stuff

Tri Delt - Its a small world bugs life thing They come on stage flapping their bugs wings, and are aparently dressed in costumes based on their personalities?

Theta - Getting things hot in the kitchen cooking!

Pi Kapp- Pool hall...is there supposedly a bar in the backdrop, I don't think that's the best for Baylor

Chi Omega - Catholic Choir School Girls, I'm almost positive this exact type theme was done here not more than 6 years ago, but they probably have some of the best singing with a sister act thing goin on (joyful joyful anyone?)

Alpha chi Omega/Guest (AKA 15 delts) - Unhappily ever after or something, the boys are getting a workout on this one

ATO - definitely games, like arcade games, video games, board games etc. Lots of props I hear

SAE - british invasion I can't wait for this one, they always make me laugh til I cry

FIJI - 20s baseball, with baseball or bat props. Word is there are some logistical problems and changes being made we'll see. However i hear vocals are going to blow us away

Phi Chi - Travelers on greyhound buses

KOT - RAILROAD, the past act was like kiddie trains or something, this is manly, very different and allowable but still typical dirty kot style

KXA - pajama party

Zeta - A walk in the park, complete with kites that hang from the ceiling like the mary poppins musical

MURDERS OF THE YOUNG
"My children, I have warned the nations that the abomination of murders of the young must be discontinued. For measure for measure We are counting these abominations, and the punishments and chastisements shall be metered in accordance with the numbers of murders of the young. No city shall escape the just wrath of an angry God." - Jesus, June 18, 1977

Sixth Anniversary of Our Lady's Apparition At Bayside - June 18, 1976

Veronica - The sky has a very deep red tinge. There are circlets of blue light coming through this red tinge that's becoming more of a pink color. Now the sky is opening up, and Our Lady is coming forward. The light is very brilliant.

There are many graces being given this evening. I'm certain that everyone can see the manifestation of graces coming from the sky in all directions. There are slivers of glass...like crystalline, slivers symbolic of the graces being given.

Our Lady is dressed in a flowing gown, a beautiful white gown. In the light and the colors about Her, the gown seems to be casting off a pink glow. Our Lady's feet are bare. No, as She turns I notice now there are small rosettes, a rose on the instep of Our Lady's feet, a small golden rose on each foot. Our Lady has on a blue veil, a mantle, a blue, a very pale blue that's cascading over Her shoulders.

Our Lady is looking over now to Her left, our right. Our Lady is taking Her Rosary from Her waist, extending it in front of Her, and making the sign of the Cross,

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.

Our Lady - "My child, I have enlarged upon the blessings being given this evening to all, on this momentous occasion of My visit to earth."

Veronica - Now Our Lady is going across the sky to our left. The graces are coming down in abundance in the form of slivers of crystalline lights. The lights are all over the sky. I'm certain there isn't a soul present who isn't aware of these lights. Our Lady now is bending forward and extending Her right arm out, with the crucifix from Her Rosary,

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.

Now Our Lady is going across the sky. She's standing directly above Her statue and touching Her lips with Her hand, the first finger of Her hand.

Our Lady - "All manners of aberration and evil have entered upon My Son's Church. Recognize the evil forces about you. A great delusion has been sent upon mankind, so that all who have given themselves to Satan shall run fast into the pit. Satan knows that his time is growing short, and in this manner must gather those who have given their souls to him. O My children, do not be influenced by the mockery and those who cast aside the warnings from Heaven.

"Many will sell their souls to get to the head. There are many traitors in the city of Rome. Without your prayers, many mitres shall fall into hell.

"My children, you have fallen into errors. MY Son gave you a concise, a direct plan for your salvation in His House, His Church. All manner of novelty and change must be stopped now. You will not gather souls with compromise.

Stop Now Your Meanderings

"You who call upon the Spirit forcefully command the spirit of darkness, the prince of darkness, to send his agents into you. You are treading where angels would fear to go, My children. You cannot force the Spirit to come to you. It is a gift given at the discretion of the Eternal Father. Stop now your meanderings into regions of darkness.

"Your world cries peace and brotherhood. And the more you cry peace the farther you go from peace, and why? Because you seek to find peace without your God. Man cannot send up his prayers unless they are founded on charity and a search for salvation through My Son. No man shall come to the Eternal Kingdom of the Father except through My Son.

"My child, I wish that you be seated. I know of your great trial. I cannot expect you, My child, to understand why you are permitted this cross.

"As a voice - box from Heaven, My child, you will not be free of the cross. Many victim souls are needed now throughout your world. The saints in heaven cry for vengeance upon an ungrateful mankind.

"I have traveled throughout your world with the warning from Heaven. Many have accepted and many have rejected. However, this Message shall be given to all. Man has been given a free will and shall accept or reject, and it will be his punishment if he rejects.

"The Eternal City of Rome shall go through a great convulsion. You will notice, My children, the many symbols of the noose. The noose means Judas. In the Eternal City of Rome, the forces are gathering to oust your Vicar. I cry bitter tears of remorse, for much has been given to your Vicar to suffer from those he has trusted. The red hats in the Eternal City of Rome have been given fair warning that they have set themselves onto the road to perdition. Sadly, they are taking many souls with them. The red hat has fallen and the purple hat is being misled.

"O My children, Our pastors, awaken from your slumber! You have scattered Our sheep. You must gather them now, while there is time. The children are innocent victims of their elders. The Faith must be given to them by their parents. Your children are wandering. They shall be like dead souls in a living body.

Michael Must Be Returned

"In your search for peace and brotherhood, you are building another religion, My children. It is a false religion of humanism and modernism. How many warnings were given out from hell! You Pastors, who have rejected Michael as the guardian of the faith and My Son's House, you must return him in prayer and visual sight; his monuments, his statues to My Son's House, Church.

"Pastors, you go farther from your faith. You deny the existence of the supernatural for you are building a church of man. Turn back, for you will be forced to turn back by My Son. Because of your impiety, because of your immorality, and because of your atheistic learnings, My children, your country shall enter a great crucible of suffering. Many countries of your earth shall be cleansed by trial.

"The Eternal Father will chastise those He loves. O My children, prepare now. I have given you the plan for the days ahead. Wear your sacramentals. Do not discard them for Satan wishes you to discard them. They are your armor, your protection in the battle ahead. Many of the sacramentals given by My Son to His Church have been discarded as superstition and of now value. Darkness and delusion have entered upon the hearts of many of Our Pastors. Cardinals, Bishops, awaken from your slumber!

"My child, you will keep a constant vigil of prayer. Bar your doors to all but your family and close workers. It is a sad fact, My child that there will be division within the homes of your country. Peace will not be given to mankind, until he makes atonement to a dishonored God. The saints in Heaven cry out for vengeance upon a wicked generation.

"The Eternal Father cries tears of great pity and sorrow, for mankind continues upon the road to his own destruction. Be ye warned, My children that the Ball of Redemption shall be set upon mankind. Skin will dry up and blow off the bones as if it had never been. Eyes will see and still not believe, so hard are the hearts hardened to the truth.

"Spiritual darkness is a wall, a wall that shuts out the light. You will all continue with a constant vigilance of prayer. My beads of prayer to mankind, the rosary, shall lead you across your land. Recognize; My children, all of the graces given from Heaven for your enlightenment, enrichment and fulfillment. You, My children, are children of light. Continue with perseverance in the days ahead. Do not slacken your pace but send out My Message, fast, shout it from the roof - tops. The time, time and a half, as written by your prophets grows short. It will come upon mankind, the destruction, while the voices cry for peace."

Veronica - Now Our Lady is reaching to Her waist, and She's taking into Her hand the beautiful white rosary; the white rosary that has the golden Our Father bead. Our lady is placing the crucifix out in front of Her and making the sign of the Cross,

In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.

Do Not Join The Secret Societies

Our Lady - "I bless you all, My children, as the Eternal Father sends you His blessings with My Son and the Holy Spirit. I caution you anew, My children, do not join the secret societies of Satan. It is truly a synagogue of Satan.

"These secret societies have covered themselves with all labels of brotherhood, goodness, and unity of man. But in what respect, My children, but subversion of your faith. Discipline must be returned to My Son's House. Those who have the charge of souls, Our Hierarchy, must exercise discipline and holiness.

"You must all keep a constant vigilance of prayer for your hierarchy. Do not set yourselves to judge. For remember, the Eternal Father is always the final judge. We do not condone evil, but the Eternal Father is always the final judge."

Veronica - Our Lady now is rising higher into the sky. The wind is blowing. Our Lady looks very beautiful. The graces are still cascading down like slivers of tiny rivulets of glass. Their coming out from Our Lady's hands now. There are streams of light coming out of Our Lady's hands, just like they're, they're just coming from Her fingers. Their tremendous lights, there's no way I can explain them in my human words. They're a powerful light, and they're cutting right through the air onto the grounds and the peoples. Oh, they're just beautiful!

Our Lady is now placing both of Her hands out of Her side, but in an arc, She's moving Her hands now in an arc, like this, and the lights are pouring from Our Lady's fingers, down upon the grounds. They have a great warmth. I feel a warmth that's beyond expressing in human words. It goes far beyond earthly existence.

Now Our Lady is placing the crucifix directly in front of Her, the large golden crucifix of Her rosary and making the sign of the Cross,

In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost.

Our Lady - "Continue, My children, My child, with your prayers of atonement. They are sorely needed.

(there is a pause)

"You will send a note to My dear child who made the banner. It pleases your hearts very much to accept this beautiful symbol of love. It will stand with all the banners gathered for My special sacred place upon the shrine grounds.

"Yes, My child, the shrine has been built, the edifice will be erected in time. Continue now, My child, you will be directed further by My Son."

(Veronica pauses)

Veronica - There is a large, white bird, a very beautiful bird. It's going over now to our left side. It's a huge bird, covering the whole sky. Directly behind the bird, Jesus is standing. He has on a beige - colored gown that's belted about the waist. His feet are bare, He has no sandals, His feet are absolutely bare. Now, His hair is blowing quite a bit, it must be very windy. Now Jesus is coming over, directly above Our Lady's statue, and He's looking about Him. He's smiling. Jesus has a very, ah, sad, but a beautiful smile upon His face.

Jesus - "My child, there is little that I could extend glee for. I do not come to bring you a Message of doomsday, as My Mother does not come for that reason. We bring you the truth. Can We open before you a picture of joy, peace and brotherhood; when all about Us we see deception and evil, and the fast working of Satan within your hearts? O My children, I will not go into a long discourse with you of the evil aberrations and all manner of deceit that has entered into the hearts of mankind. Soul destroyers, more numerous than in the days of Sodom or the time of Noah. In that respect, My children, what kind of a stern hand shall be placed upon you, as you go fast onto the road to your own destruction.

My Mother's Rosary Is Broken

"Your country, and many nations upon earth, have given themselves to all manners of sins of the flesh. Corruption and evil so vile, that no human mind could conceive of this evil. But it has come up from the very depths of hell! I admonish as your God, all who are in My House to mend your ways. My heart is sobbing, My hands are bleeding. I long to see My creation and be filled with joy. My Mother's rosary is broken, and no one wonders why. Because too few pray. Many have discarded these heads of prayer. Thrown them away and have gone chasing after all manner of sin, for diversion.

"Sin has become a way of life in your nation and many nations upon earth. You have, with your country, the gatherers of the forces of evil. Never before in the history of mankind has man set up Babylon.

New York Reserved For Greatest Punishment

"Your city, New York, shall be set in reserve for a punishment far greater than shall be given to any city upon your earth. The forces of evil, fan out like a cancer polluting the world.

"Amen, I say to you, you will listen and act upon the warnings given to you throughout your world by many emissaries from Heaven. Act upon them or be destroyed. Justice, has been clouded. Many minds have been poisoned by Satan in your world. Evil, has entered upon the homes. Children are the innocent victims of their elders.

"The time, time and a half, is upon mankind and coming to its close. Have you listened and acted upon the warnings of My Mother? There will be gnashing of teeth and much woe set upon the earth by the dark forces of 666, (six sixty - six). My children, you will continue for the direction of My Mother in the days ahead. She has been sent to you as a Mediatrix, between your God and man. Listen with an open mind and an open heart. Seek and you will be given the way to the light.

"My Mother, has gathered Her children throughout your world. None shall fall unless he falls of free will. Pray a constant vigilance of prayer, My children. Keep your monuments in your homes, your statues. Wear your sacramentals for graces are needed to offset the forces of evil that are now raging to ravage the world."

Veronica - Now Jesus is placing His hand out in front of Him like this, His fingers are extended, and the three fingers pointed outward, He's making now the sign of the Cross,

In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost.

Now Jesus is going over to the right side. Our Lady now is coming behind Him from the first tree, She's crossing over and standing now at Jesus' right side. Jesus is extending His hand out now, He's over, directly over by our left side, next to the tall tree; and making the sign of the Cross: In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost.

Jesus is now bending down to Our Lady, She's just about, oh, ah, the shoulder level beneath Him. And He's saying something to Her, I can't hear it. Now they're both going, they're gliding across the sky, they don't walk, they're like carried on the wind. There's a, almost weightless, there's no way to explain it.

Our Lady now is following behind Jesus, they're going across the sky. And Jesus is bending down now. He's just above the Michael banner by the tree, and He's making the sign of the Cross: In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost.

Our Lady now is touching Her lips with Her finger.

You Must Not Give Lip Service

Our Lady - "My children, when you pray, for you are rescuing your brothers and sisters, you must not use what could be termed as lip service. You must pray with purpose and feeling from the heart. Each word will be prayed slowly with understanding and reason. Like this: Our Father... who are in Heaven... hallowed by Thy Name... They kingdom come... Thy will be done... on earth... as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread... and forgive us our trespasses... as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation... but deliver us from all evil. Amen.

"Continue now, My children, with your prayers of atonement."

Veronica - Hail Mary full of grace; the Lord is with Thee; blessed are Thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of Thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

My God, I believe, I adore, I trust, and I love Thee. I beg pardon for all those who do not believe, do not adore, do not trust, and do not love Thee.

Where do you get your stuff????? way off




So back to sing....

Kappa Sig---haven't heard much other than waste management and haven't heard much about that

Pi Phi - Viva las vegas, with a little goin to the chapel in the middle

Kappa- How kids get popular at recess, songs like "popular" from wicked and some other random stuff

Tri Delt - Its a small world bugs life thing They come on stage flapping their bugs wings, and are aparently dressed in costumes based on their personalities?

Theta - Getting things hot in the kitchen cooking!

Pi Kapp- Pool hall...is there supposedly a bar in the backdrop, I don't think that's the best for Baylor

Chi Omega - Catholic Choir School Girls, I'm almost positive this exact type theme was done here not more than 6 years ago, but they probably have some of the best singing with a sister act thing goin on (joyful joyful anyone?)

Alpha chi Omega/Guest (AKA 15 delts) - Unhappily ever after or something, the boys are getting a workout on this one

ATO - definitely games, like arcade games, video games, board games etc. Lots of props I hear

SAE - british invasion I can't wait for this one, they always make me laugh til I cry

FIJI - 20s baseball, with baseball or bat props. Word is there are some logistical problems and changes being made we'll see. However i hear vocals are going to blow us away

Phi Chi - Travelers on greyhound buses

KOT - RAILROAD, the past act was like kiddie trains or something, this is manly, very different and allowable but still typical dirty kot style

KXA - pajama party

Zeta - A walk in the park, complete with kites that hang from the ceiling like the mary poppins musical

MURDERS OF THE YOUNG
"My children, I have warned the nations that the abomination of murders of the young must be discontinued. For measure for measure We are counting these abominations, and the punishments and chastisements shall be metered in accordance with the numbers of murders of the young. No city shall escape the just wrath of an angry God." - Jesus, June 18, 1977





GOD SAYS DO NOT MURDER THE YOUNG. SING IS MURDER. DO NOT MURDER THE YOUNG OR YOU'LL ALL GO TO HELL YOU UNWASHED UNFRATTY COLLARPOPPING HEATHENS!


The first three letters of Sing are S-i-n!

I'm not sure if this one is right. A couple of my best friends are in KXA, and they said that's just a fake one to throw everyone off. They could be fooling me just to confuse me, but I'm not positive


Umm...so I was just kidding...

They were totally messing with me, and I fell for it. This is the correct theme or at least the right idea

Link to This (http://www.thestranger.com/seattle/Content?oid=17405#) Copy and paste: Jock Itch" onclick="this.focus();this.select();" readonly="true" id="link_code" />


An avid Jock Itch reader recently brought to my attention that this column is "angry, unintelligible nonsense and you should quit trying to write about sports since you obviously don't know ****." Angry? Perhaps. Don't know ****? Okay. But unintelligible nonsense? My good friend, you are way out of line! And to prove it, this week I'm attempting something that usually encourages in me great heaps of diarrhea, the Reasoned Expository Essay:

It would be nice to live in a city with a winning professional basketball team, so after each game we could loot, ransack, and turn over cars in joyous celebration. Instead, Seattle basketball fans have to contend with a young team lacking maturity that will most likely continue playing like hillbilly frog-****ers until a spot in the playoffs is far out of reach. It is my contention that the Seattle SuperSonics, without Gary Payton, suck. For example, last week against the Lakers, even after Reggie Evans, bless his soul, collided with Kobe Bryant (who, as a result, will be out for another month), the Sonics still lost 99-91.

In conclusion, without Gary Payton the SuperSonics lack the leadership necessary to be competitive in the postseason.

Second, and perhaps most importantly, although I have Ansu Sesay's autograph, neither he, nor Reggie Evans, nor Vitaly Potapenko deserves love. Gary Payton does. God loves Gary Payton, and even though he left us here in Seattle, his spirit is all around us. When you're good at your job and everyone else you work with is always complaining, calling in sick, and trying to start fights, and you just sit there working hard and focusing all day and don't get any attention for it, Gary Payton is there with you. You may be famous and unbelievably rich, but you don't always get the headlines, because you work with whiners and freaks like Kobe and Shaq.

In conclusion again, I'd like to reiterate that it would be nice to have a basketball team that aroused so much passion that Seattle would erupt in joyous violence each time the team won.

So much for the crappy Reasoned Expository Essay! Stay tuned next week for the Seasoned Suppository Essay.

To everyone who hates SING, but loves Baylor...Do you realize that Baylor pulls in around a half a million dollars on tickets alone for SING? Let me know if you have a better idea on how to get that amount of money out of alumni in two weekends. I think it is brilliant. Add in DVD's and concessions and it does not take long to pay for the new Brook's Hall.

you are quite possible the dumbest person alive. lets do a little math. the most expensive ticket is 18 dollars. there are approximately 2200 seats in Waco hall. lets just say for this experiment every ticket is 18 dollars. 18 times 2200 times 6 shows is $237600. so the max they could even make is that much. not even half a million dollars!!!! you are dumb...please stop posting on here. you are making a fool of yourself...please explain yourself...idiot.

seeing as "other sources" of income in the bigass pdf with the budget an expenditures only totalled 4.5% of the budget...and the fact that dorms are a completely different section of the budget than sing ticket sales, I daresay that south village and Baylor could both survive without Sing.

sing doesn't even get its own little category for revenue in that list. it's minute. tiny. miniscule. like your big flaming balrogs. c'mon, FUPAloopa, your balrogs are only big because I gave you the clap and the worts and you and I both know it.

oh, and if you want something that's funny as hell to read when youre drunk off your ass, here it is: http://www.baylor.edu/content/services/document.php/29713.pdf

Baylor ****s us in the ass for tuition...without sing, they could survive, but without students to rape and other peoples money to borrow with no means of paying it off anytime soon, bu'd be ****ed too. there be some loan collectors up in pat neff and theyt're pissed suckas. not really but that's a funnyass thought whn you're drunk as a skunk on the funk beeches.

I guess the sing attracts teh gays to Baylor, who come with money because they've gotta have cash to pay for those fabulous gay wardrobes.

Welcome to the General Headquarters of the Campaign for Canadian World Domination. Your future tyrants are General Claire and General Jenny. The Generals are Canadians who are taking over the world and re-designing it to suit their aims. We will accomplish this goal by:



The systematic destruction and sublimation of all opposing the Canadian reign -- and the polite, yet horrifically brutal, control of our future territories of conquest.


Infiltrating the USA and through a cleverly designed plan, destroying it, and using its resources for our own purposes.


Demonstrating to the world that Canada is the final and ultimate power.


Decontaminating the world of American influence.


Reorganizing a New World Society of Canucks to suit our kindly, peace-loving, and diabolical aims.

Happy Canada Day Aftermath All!

Celebrate by checking out our new logo and reading some thoughts from your Generals. (http://cwd.ptbcanadian.com/cday.html)

it is not necessary for you to report to 6 decimals for 2 reasons:

1. money cannot be counted past 2 decimals
2. that would be a waste of your time to even think about going to 6 decimals

Sing is a competition, therefore, there will be bashing. Why the hell do you think we tell tired jokes about goat sex before the aggie game every year? It's a fvcking competition. No sh1t, sherlock. And if you cant take the heat about your act, get teh hell off the sing thread. There will be bashing. Heated opinions. Guesses that the ATO act is really abut microwaves.

And there's not a damn thing you can do about it to keep the absolute worst of the greeks from signing up for a screenname and posting asinine crap about each otehrs acts. Suck it up you big baby. Or get off the board. Theres a sock in your room that wants its daily loving.
