Somebody Finally Explains Junior High

Wow. Impressive essay on Why Nerds Are Unpopular. Paul Graham mentions several ssues I've always considered particularly important, such as lack of purpose, the bland horror of suburbia, and the difference between farm families (for example), where the kids understand what the adults do (and see them doing it up close) and families where the parents are just figures in an office somewhere else.

You don't even need to ask if I was a nerd.
