Yeah, It Sucked But Was It This Bad?

so i read paul graham's latest paper today, and i'm trying to decide what to think about it. on one hand, i have a great deal of really horrible memories of junior high and high school, and there are a lot of things he says that ring very true. on the other, i don't recall ever hitting the depths he seems to feel were common among the 'nerds' he knew (and i most certainly was a nerd in high school, that's not even a question).

in any event, it's well worth the read, as it raises a lot of interesting questions. i don't know if he finds the right answers, but just asking the questions can be worthwhile in and of itself.
