    All the Alcohol You Can('t) Take in 90 Minutes

    Adam Marszal and Russell Taylor, two former students at California Polytechnic State University, were sentenced to jail after hazing a freshman who died of alcohol poisoning while pledging Sigma Alpha Epsilon.

    The boy, 18, died after drinking large amounts of alcohol in 90 minutes. There was no after-party.

    The boy, at his time of death, had a Blood Alcohol Level of .44. Just to put it into perspective, that is more than 5 times the legal limit for driving and actually exceeds the levels of the effects of surgical anesthesia.

    Trivia Questions: Choose Your Object

    Alexandra Robbins, author of the book "Pledged: The Secret Life of Sororities," spent a year undercover and witnessed one incident where the pledge class had to answer trivia questions and drink straight vodka when they got the question wrong. Not too bad, right? Just a normal, run-of-the-mill drinking game (involving minors), right?

    If they got enough wrong, though, they were presented with a Sharpie (what is it with these things), a knife, a hammer and a d***o, with the threat that one of those objects would violate them.

    Boiling Hot Water On Back, Chest, Genitals

    At Tulane University, pledges for Pi Alpha Kappa were put under boiling water for the most physically enduring pain they'd ever had. Fraternity brothers used boiling water containing pepper spray and a "crab boil" seasoning mixture containing cayenne pepper to pour over their victims' backs.

    Oddly enough, the ones who screamed didn't get burned as badly, but those who held it in got the worst of it. As the evening went on, the water got hotter, and the burns got deeper.

    One pledge suffered second and third degree burns to his back, chest, buttocks and genitals, and was subjected to twice-daily burn treatments by doctor's orders.

    He was also not able to take his exams or travel that semester.

    10 of the "brothers" faced charges of aggravated second-degree battery; so needless to say, justice was served, as they seemed to end up in some pretty hot water.

    Drinking Two Gallons of A Drink Called "Death"

    A brother known as the "pledge father" says, "We want to see you down this stuff, balls to the wall."

    And then you start chugging a spicy and thick drink known as "Death" before you don't-die-but-almost-feel-like-dying for about 5 hours.

    Each pledge of Lambda Phi Epsilon, a historically Asian fraternity, must drink about two gallons worth of this time-honored concoction (probably a mixture of ketchup and Tabasco sauce).

    This usually takes about 4 to 5 hours for everyone to finishing drinking, then puking, then drinking some more. Click here for more information on this delicious, popular, new drink.

    Exercises in Feces and Urine

    There's nothing that says brotherly love more than f***s and urine. Although it is said that many frats force their pledges to drink urine, few documented examples beyond just hearsay have surfaced with discreet details (at least as far as college hazing rituals go... military hazing rituals are a whole OTHER can of worms).

    An incident took place at Hartwick College where pledges of Alpha Chi Ro were forced to carry f***s-covered rocks through a forest and do push-ups and up downs in urine-soaked garbage. It's worse than it sounds.

    The garbage also contained glass and dirty diapers.

    The basement was in the house of Peter Torabkhan, who along with two other guys were charged by state police at Oneonta with first-degree hazing (a criminal offense nowadays).

    Another man, Yury Pertsovsky, who was not a student at Hartwick, was also charged with second-degree aggravated harassment for making threatening phone calls to the freshman who reported the incident.
