How was that ever even a question? Fraternities are literally a bunch of young men that are only "allowed" to join after doing something stupid or even insane to "prove" themself. What part of that sounds like it lends to good decision making??

To be fair, there are other types of fraternities as well. I was a member of an honors frat (coed, as I'm female), and while we did have social events and parties, we had no hazing, and none of our brothers would ever do something that dumb.

Young adult men, with more testosterone and access to alcohol than common sense. That's why. (Sororities aren't any better, except their consequences tend to be social and emotional as opposed to physical and mental. Still, as dumb and dangerous as fraternities, just in a different way.)

A bacterium would be for one single instance of a strain of bacteria, on the most formal level of English. However, common speech uses bacteria as both the plural and singular. That said, if the amount of E. clew was sufficient to be in a sample tube or dish, it would most likely be accurate to say "eat literal bacteria" as there would be multiple cells of the bacteria in the tube.

That’s such a terrific explanation that I felt compelled to comment and expand. Amazing that it is almost verbatim from Wiktionary and it’s the very first thing that when searching the term “plural of bacteria” in Google. Perhaps your next search should be “definition of plagiarism”...

They are not handing in a paper. They are answering a question in casual conversation, with accurate information. At least they were nice enough not to post a link to lmgtfy. :)

It scares me hearing that it was college kids who thought that that would be funny. I knew that college has a few dumbasses here and there, but I never imagined that there would be college kids THIS stupidest. Let’s hope the school kicks them out of the class and bans them from entering the lab after that stunt. They should also be forced to a lesson on lab safety with a test.

I read DA as "district attorney," and was really confused for a min.
