Avenging the Nerds

“…because nerds like us are allowed to be unironically enthusiastic about stuff… Nerds are allowed to love stuff, like jump-up-and-down-in-the-chair-can’t-control-yourself love it. Hank, when people call people nerds, mostly what they’re saying is ‘you like stuff.’ Which is just not a good insult at all. Like, ‘you are too enthusiastic about the miracle of human consciousness’.” — John Green

Just wondering out loud, on a sleepless night:  if you spend an entire school week trying to get kids to find better things to do than drugs, why, then, would you have a day making fun of those kids who might have very well found something better to do than drugs?

Just askin’…
