Why nerds are unpopular

I did not have anywhere to put this. I have recently gained some popularity but have been a basketball/academic nerd up until this year. This essay really hit home. It is well thought out and is by a very intelligent person. I wish people at my school read this.

Don't put a negative label on yourself (nerd) if you don't want people to view you negatively.

And also NO to anyone who associates with him. No Taylor Allan. No Adam Scammenauger. No Kelly Baggett. No Elliot Hulse. No Jtrinsey. NO JUMP USA


Don't PM me asking me training questions. I'm here for the lulz. If you want help, post on the forums and get help from all the members, maybe even me.

Oh no. I am a nerd and I am proud.

Dunk and after that do this: <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JzRqWypoRDw" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JzRqWypoRDw</a> . Your name will be chanted by all the kids in the school (mine was)
The fact that i gained prizes every year of school i was in + scholarships for College and M.Sc. doesn't even count me as geek/nerd if i acted retarded the rest of the time  :strong: :strong: :strong:
