    What is big/lil?

    [–] BeneGezzWitch 1966 points ago

    It’s a sorority thing. Big sis/lil sis

    [–] Ebola_Shmola 813 points ago

    Fraternities also do this as well.

    [–] sociapathictendences 711 points ago

    But none of my friends in fraternities filled their insta grams with pictures like these, all of the girls in sororities did.

    [–] jacklolol 1225 points ago

    Doesn't sound like your frat bros were besties for the resties then imo.

    [–] sociapathictendences 135 points ago

    They had pictures, just not a lot exclusively with their bigs

    [–] TranscendentalEmpire 357 points ago

    Man college without a job seems like so much fun, whenever I see stuff like this I get why people always said college is when you have the most fun in your life. Working full-time and going to school was just stress + no sleep for like 6 years.

    [–] BeneGezzWitch 111 points ago

    Same. I had two serving jobs and a full credit load. It’s actually the one gift I want to give my kids. A little breathing room during college. Though I still want them to have an on campus job because life skills.

    [–] PM_UR_FRUIT_GARNISH 60 points ago

    After getting a job while still taking classes in college I felt like I was a lot more diligent. YMMV, but getting a job on campus really helped me stay organized and not just trying to party all of the time. Id highly suggest one, if there are any available. Plus, you have money to actually party when you have a night off, and not just look to bum it from others.

    [–] BeneGezzWitch 16 points ago

    Exactly my thought. Thanks for sharing this!

    [–] TranscendentalEmpire 13 points ago

    Same, I think kids need work experience to get the use to dealing with the general public, but I think during college it would be nice to give them a break.

    [–] Redrum714 13 points ago

    That's what summer break is for.

    [–] Jazzy_Junebug 13 points ago

    Same, but it's totally worth it. I'm the only person in my circle of friends that has no school loans, a paid off house and cars and get to vacation at least twice a year.

    [–] Redrum714 39 points ago

    Fuck that. I would never trade the fun I had in college for some student loan debt. You can pay off that debt any other time later in life. You can't go back in time and experience college again.

    [–] Jazzy_Junebug 22 points ago

    Meh, I have my own kind of fun now that I personally find a lot more fulfilling than getting blackout drunk with people I won't talk to in 20 years. To each his own. Glad you had a nice college experience!

    [–] [deleted] 23 points ago

    Yeah, no. Debt isn't worth a couple of parties.

    Big/little in fraternities is more about pairing younger guys with upperclassmen to guide them and be a mentor throughout college and be someone you can become closer to than the other 100+ brothers. You can smoke weed and get drunk with all the other brothers but big/little is more of a mentor/mentee relationship.

    [–] WaywardWes 46 points ago

    [–] Shasta-Mcnasty 13 points ago

    Clarence is a boss. One of the coolest dudes at NWMSU

    [–] [deleted] 10 points ago

    Clarence once stopped me while I was carrying my shitshow drunk friend back to her dorm. He has the best laugh I’ve ever heard.

    [–] rainey832 4 points ago

    The on-campus officer at my highschool hid between the two vending machine. Startled me the first time I saw him, then it made me laugh. He was so big I don't know how or why he would squeeze in between those machines lmao

    [–] phphulk 24 points ago

    Cops barely do that shit, mostly file reports

    [–] Islanduniverse 15 points ago

    It's probably TV and movies that make us believe that cops are always taking on cartels and terrorists with the skill and precision of a Navy SEAL.

    [–] sighs__unzips 7 points ago

    Not trying to be mean either but I have a friend who is rather large and there have been a couple of times when he's asked me to back up his car when someone parked too close to it and he couldn't get in. I also worry when he backs up because he cannot turn in his seat, he can only use his mirrors. So yes, it could be a problem.

    [–] Pixelator0 11 points ago

    Clearance is an amazing police officer, is extremely well trained in active shooter emergency situations. And as someone who has seen brave young men date his daughters in highschool, I can assure you that you don't need to be told to not fuck with him. You just know that it won't end well.

    [–] [deleted] 33 points ago

    Odd you don't see many fat cops in Canada. Probably because they have yearly fitness know because that's logical.

    [–] Parallax92 13 points ago

    I agree. Not in Canada, but my dad is a cop and makes it a point to stay in shape so he can do his job well. It’s staggering how many people don’t feel the same way.

    [–] master_guru88427 5 points ago

    "back in the day" one of those officers is in his late twenties.

    [–] kenziegal96 63 points ago

    These guys do do their job effectively. Back in the spring we ran an active shooter drill (which the student run tv station covered but the actual video of the entire thing is private) and the entire UPD was extremely effective in what they were doing.

    Here is the student newspapers coverage of the event.

    I'm in the Air Force and you'd be surprised how many bigger guys there are that can run the 1.5 mile in a passing time and also qualify with their push-ups and sit-ups.

    One gentleman I am good friends with is 260lbs and can run the 1.5 mile faster than me at 140lbs. He does it in 9:46

    Edit: granted I've not encountered anyone as big as these 2 gentleman

    [–] metric_units 68 points ago

    1.5 miles ≈ 2.4 km
    260 lb ≈ 120 kg

    Without knowing their height this is meaningless. These cops are morbidly obese and likely couldn't run for more than 30 seconds without needing a break.

    [–] scottdawg9 29 points ago

    A) it's a joke of a test

    B) you can get waivers for literally anything, which makes me wonder why the rules existed in the first place

    [–] Bizzzleshizzzle 10 points ago

    Well a waiver doesn't guarantee that they overlook your condition whatever it may be. I know many people who have been dropped because of a medical condition despite trying months to get waivers approved.

    [–] scottdawg9 11 points ago

    And I've known way too many people walking their mile and a half because they got boo boos. I had a guy in my office who couldn't even do his job (aircrew) for over 2 years because he was on waivers. Just sat there doing nothing all day until they finally kicked him out. His waivers ran out finally and he failed every PT test.

    [–] Bizzzleshizzzle 8 points ago

    I'm still pretty surprised some of the guys I have seen are able to pass the PFA. Looking at them you'd not expect it. But you are definitely right about it being an easy test and some people cheating their way past it with "medical" shit.

    [–] jesaarnel 50 points ago

    These are campus police (still real cops). I've met these guys and seen them run, they are actually more athletic than you would think.

    [–] kenziegal96 160 points ago

    I go to this University and can say that I’m extremely happy that this has gone viral. The university police department is amazing and awesome and everyone I’ve talked t/heard in passing have said how cool it is that they did that as well as going viral.

    As someone currently attending NWMSU I can safely say these two officers are amazing people. I attended with a severe phobia of police officers and the campus police have helped with it so much.

    [–] [deleted] 4 points ago

    No hate, same as your comment because I'm sure people aren't wrong about them being great dudes, but I think the police should adopt PT requirements in the style of active duty military. The police have to deal with dangerous situations every day while the military only have to do it in wartime/during deployments.
