Were You "Cool" in High School?
http://www.angelfire.com/ak2/intelligencerreport/cool_person.html ^

This test is based on how cool you were in High School...

What crowd you ran with, what car you drove, who you dated, etc.

It's pretty accurate.

Nah, I wasn’t one of the ‘in crowd’, but I had friends in all the crowds, so I was fortunate.

Good God no - to make it worse, I was at a nerd school and still couldn’t rise above the crowd.

No test needed. I ran with the “greasers”, they were the only one with cars.

The first test is actually based on whether or not you even click the link:

“Are you even marginally self aware?”

My son is in high school and is having terrible self-esteem issues.

I’ve been telling him the same thing, but it’s not comforting him.

He’s just tall and gangly and very smart. Those are all characteristics of a young man who will do well later.

Proud Nerd. Chess Club, Math Club, Debate Team.

Cool? Nah...not even among the nerds...

First car was a 1960 BelAir, inline 6-cyl (firing on four), two-speed automatic. Nothing cool about that.

I was nerd to the max. My future wife was one, too.

Still working at 62, have most of my health and all of my faith.

Reunions are out of the question; let the former jocks and stars attend and one-up each other, it’s no fun with no nerds present.

Starting to attend more and more funerals of former cool guys.

I was so far away from ‘cool’ that I couldn’t even be classified.
Band geek, and not that good of one at that.
No friends.
Never went to a single dance.
Missed prom.
Was thought to have ‘mental issues’, and at the time was likely true.
Grew out of it and survived in spite of it all.

I'd say that I straddled the boundary ...

Marching band, concert band, pep band, jazz band, orchestra, choir, drama club ...

Member of the school audio-visual team, National Honor Society, Michigan Mock Senate ...

Baseball, football, golf, motorcycle club ...

Had friends on both sides of the divide. Student council vice-president (only ran because an SDS candidate was running unopposed) ...

But I would have to say that, if pressed, I would have had to self-identify as a "geek" (and a Band Geek at that)...

I was a nerd...

...at least until I finished restoring my Willys Jeep and started riding motorcycles.

Then I was a nerd who rode motorcycles and drove an old Jeep.

I just blended in and waited for it to be over.

Had friends in all groups, just about.
Not part of the “in crowd” although I was friends with two or three of the popular ones.

A couple years after I graduated, I found out that some of the younger kids thought I was cool when I was a senior.
No one thought I was one of the cool kids in Freshman year though.

I don’t really think much about being cool now that I’m older.

I’d say I was “Average Joe” in High School”

My wife and I went to different schools in the same area.

She was beyond popular in high school to a point where the Principle told her parents that they were worried since she had such a cult following in high school that it was going to cause her psychological issues in college because she woulds lose that following...it just started up with a different set of people LOL

I on the other hand played baseball but was by no means popular just a skinny undersized kid who thought he was the ugliest kid in the world.

We met later in life, (both 37 now) been married a year and I still bust her chops all the time that she never would have talked to me back then...she says she would have...out of sympathy!

LOL

I was never part of the high school aristocracy. I had friends from all different cliques. I never tried to be part of any one group, and was more or less under the radar on the pecking order scale.


At the end of my junior year, I do recall one of the toughest and meanest bullies in the senior class saying in a current events class that he never thought of picking on me or my friends because every time he saw me I was reading guns n ammo, shotgun news, or American rifleman magazines. ;) That said, I was bored to death by sophomore year, and viewed high school as nothing more than government mandated day care for adolescents.

I don’t know. 1959 Chevy is the coolest car ever.
Three deuces.
You were only one notch away!
Too bad those other two cylinders weren’t working.

The first reunion I went to was number 45. I thought I would see what happened to everybody. It was fun to see the really cool kids whose lives really tanked after High School and then see the nerds who have done well.

In High School I would have given my right arm to have traded places with some of these people. I thought they had the world on a string. I have to say I was not one of the popular people. It is interesting now that I would not even consider trading places with any of them. Some of their lives have been so wasted. They are envious of me. I think that is just so funny. You just don’t know what you have so often.
