I would agree, when I was in undergrad, I dated a guy who was in a faternity and he showed me the hazing book (the wood book) and O.M.G. I couldn't quite figure out what was on the cover of it and it was someone body part that was beaten until it was purple looking. The book was crazy to say the least. I also had friends that pledged various things and to here the rules and see how they were tortured was sad. They endured all of that for brotherhood or sisterhood, honestly I think to belong. Their were the pros and connections one can make for a lifetime, however not being able to sit, because you took "wood" and you have blisters and you are in too much pain to do so. I will pass on that. Some are however, willing to pay the cost to belong, for me it was too high.
