I was just reading this story and it made me think of something.
OK. My idea is that what is considered 'cool' nowadays is really nerdy, and what is considered "nerdy" is really cool. Because the cool people are the ones that feel they have to conform to what their status suggests and smoke, and do drugs, and wear the "cool" clothes, and just "hang-out." But the real cool people are the nerds, who have the self-confidence to be who they really are, and occupy themselves with things that really interest them, like astrophysics, or swing dancing... or (gasp)... reading. What do you think?
