Ahoy there sailors, once again I'm back...
You guys probably didn't even care that I left.
Well screw you!
JK
Any ways, I would like some help with some stuff that has been going on lately.

My friend, My dance partner, is in Band, yet he denies the fact that he's a geek, and even laughs at me for doing what he call's <"Geek Association, or ""Networking"" " Whatever the He** that is, well anyways, I think that he needs some help on that subject. Well what should I do? Being in Band Automatically makes you a geek, unless of course your a Drum Major, I think. I'm not in band, but most of my friends are hence, geek association.
Now that upsets me a little.
I don't "diss" on geek's even though they aren't the most popular people in the world. But then again popularity isn't a top 10 on my list of 5 priorities. Whatever is the funnest...Funnest...is that even a word?
Well anyways, I guess I'm having issues.
I could just really use some advice.
Do I tell him to stop the geek bashing, and admit that he is a geek, or Just stop talking about Geeks, GC, and my intelligence altogether...
HELP ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Well that's my little venting session for today,
And that costed way less than my last session.
Cya,

I use the word funnest.
My recommendation: attempt a really subtle yet entertaining dis on him.
My dis: I carry an old-skool sci-fi lunchbox with me (a remake, of course), and on occasion, a half-witted jock will ask: "Is that your lunchbox?" I hold it up happily and say: "No, it's a finely-tuned scientific instrument designed to attract the attention of idiots." Then I walk off.
You use your dis on him, and see how quickly he responds. <5 seconds: He's really a geek (there are some non-geek band members), repeat it to him every day, and he'll believe it. >5 seconds: leave it be.

Thanks for your advice Oz. I really appreciate it, and to what you said Ilovemydaulg4 is that really true? I mean sure they might say that they aren't geeks, but you'd think that they were,, since they like doing something that doesn't have to do with gaining popularity. Which reminds me of anotherthing. Why does everyone value popularity so much.. The "Popular" people are always hated the most any way. Well g2g,

it is true, because it was highly suggested that you sign up for it, and it is a pain to have to quit (paperwork, and the band teacher is a really nice star wars fan(atic) guy)
<? amatuer psycology
Why do people value popularity?
because they have nothing else to value. usually when they are popular they think that they are so good, and then everyone starts not liking them, and they become a bully. inside the bully "clique" they will try to become popular and then they may, and will become more selfish and conceded, untill everyonen hates them, then they usually join the suicidal "clique" which is why i dont want to be popular

Bitter feelings leed to anger..
Anger leads to Hate...
