Young Men — The Cool Kids


For young people, status and where they fit into the hierarchy are often an important consideration. This is just the way that they are, as many don’t really know themselves, what they can do, or what they can be. Over time, as one figures things out, status and the like should/can become of less importance.

At a younger age, an example of this in action is the middle/high school cool kids phenomenon; where the cool kids hang out with each other and outsiders vie to become one of the group. So what makes one cool? It is often some combination of looks, social skills, confidence, clothes, etc.

How useful is it to become a member of such a group? It may seem like it would be; but one must consider the effort required and if the goal is even attainable. Furthermore, to appear cool, one should not look as if they are trying too hard to join the group. What can the group, or its members, do for you? From an adult perspective, they might be connected, which could be useful. It is also the case that many are not particularly skilled at anything useful, getting by on being cool. As to what kind of friends they might be, I am not sure that loyalty is high on the list. In short, it is probably a mixed bag at best.

So would chasing after the cool group be worth it? Putting in lots of resources to impress people that you probably don’t even like? Maybe those resources could be put elsewhere.

    I noticed sometime between 6 / 7th grade (age 12-13 in the USA) in elementray school and moving into jr. high……..something changed. Lines drawn, sides made, groups took root. Whereas a few years earlier I would be in Cub Scouts with many of what became “popular guys” but by 1983 (7th grade)……I was shunned or suddenly “not in” with them. It was perplexing at the time. Hurt desperatley.

    I’ve gone over it a trillion times since leaving high school in 1988 and my small hometown of 800 people…..

    If I had to do it again………well…….I would have not cared as much about people liking me, but the other side is…….it forced me to be my own best friend…..and forge an identity on my own on my own terms without the “cool peer” approval.

    Probably a “wash” at this point now at the age of fifty.

    I never went on to “change the world” and to be honest…..neither did any of the popular kids.

    I did go to my 25th high school reuinion in 2013. It happened to be going on when I was back visiting my family / native home for the last time before my father decided to sell and move. It had been home since 1969 when my parents bought the land and built the house. I had to visit it one last time. It was my life from birth…..school…..coolege…visits back from California over the decades. It was the constant.

    I found most people from my high school class the same…..just older. No one’s life turned out like they wanted it to I am sure. My high school class had thirteen students. A real, rurual country school……and all of us were there from my class. Except one who died during Iraqi-Freedom in 2003. Useless war.

    No, I didn’t become friends with them……nor do I stay in touch. Nor was it “look how far I went” and “I’m a big shot now”

    Everyone was polite. Everyone was at least genuine for the evening at the old high school and meal out at the local diner in the hamlet.

    Everyone was divorced and on their second marriage except for myself who was a bachelor, and another classmate who did a twenty year stint in the Peace Corps after college at Plattsburgh State University.

    Being a teenager is never easy, and as a awkward teen with few social skills….it was easy for me to “wish” back then that I could have been like them. Now? Not really.

    I have not kept up with most of the folks from school but the best I can tell the popular kids have become more successful

    A lot of a man’s success is going to be based on his ablity to form and maintain social circles. Employers want to hire people that will fit in with that version of a social circle. More experienced players will be more willing to mentor young men whom they get a long with, people are more likely to form buiness partnerships with you if they like you etc etc

    I tell my younger cousins when I see them……well, when they speak about high school…….not much has really changed. Teens with lower status are still getting their heads flushed in toilets for no reason between classes. The poor kid is mocked for being poor. A popular guy or gal could burn down the school and still not be charged. Soccer players for some reason still have bad breath (my high school didn’t have football, too small of a school….insurance too high….a soccer high school). There is still a popular girl who is popular for just being popular and has zero redeeming qualities. To this day….whenever I am in a locker room at a gym, or swimming pool……an uneasy feeling that I am going to be jumped, kicked, punched, thrown in the shower at any second with all my clothes on and be told by “coach” to walk it off / and “you’re okay” still haunts me.

    Looking back……some of my torment, I probably deserved. Maybe I was “asking” for it. Maybe its just Darwin when others smell weakness and they can get away with doing something like that to a person….they will.

    I of course didn’t believe it at the time…….but when my mom and dad would tell me “there is life after high school” it was hard to grasp back then…like now I am sure.

    In the 1986-1987 academic year I was sent to West Germany as an exchange student for the year. Got me out of my high school. When I returned for my senior year….people kind of left me alone….or a curious look of “that guy went to Germany for a year” and I was graduating and leaving……….so maybe I didn’t care.

    It was a long time ago, but it took a long time to heal mentally from that place. I feel for kids today who are in the same boat I was in back then…….but my advice would be “just finish, get out and get away”

    Lastmod, interesting take on high school now. I’m kind of curious what state/area your cousins went to school in? We’ve moved a lot with our boys and I’ve noticed things are very different. They tell me there are no bullies anymore….in fact, watching movies from the past kind of fascinates them (the different behaviors of the kids then compared to now, I assured them those films are accurate, every day on the bus I’d have to brush the spit balls from my hair before class, one time I was dragged down the aisle by my ponytail, it was really a penitentiary on wheels).
    Our boys have always had fighting skills (from each other), and they’re big so maybe they just don’t see it because no one has ever picked on them?

    Highschool…a chapter in life that is best forgotten IMO. I was a skinny, nerd in an Iowa farm town HS with a class size of maybe 10. A pair of twin boys thought it was great fun to occasionally corner me and beat on me together from time to time. Pretty certain that is where I began having an “attitude” problem.
    One afternoon they both found me alone out by the football ball field where they figured no one was around to see and started towards me to commence another beating on yours truly. Under the bleacher was a short piece of 2×4 that worked perfectly to break one of the assholes jaw in two places when I clipped him hard, the other turd wound up with a cracked rib (I missed).
    Was expelled in my junior year and neve returned.

    It’s up to people to decide what’s real and what’s puffed up for political use. There’s certainly been some puffing going on.

    I tend to believe that the virus is capable of of doing people some serious wrong but I have seen no stats on what your odds are (Hit by lightning or crossing a busy road?). It doesn’t seem to be killing many people now that they’ve learned how to treat it but just because it doesn’t kill you doesn’t mean that it hasn’t hurt you. Perhaps permanently.

    Anyway

    Maybe this is an indication of what’s going on. Feel free to ignore (just don’t spout stupid shit about Koch’s Postulates not being met or the non-existence of viruses)

    ONE in ten Brits under 50 may get long Covid if they contract the virus Matt Hancock revealed today.

    The Health Sec revealed the alarming news in the House of Commons to MPs this afternoon in a coronavirus statement.

    t’s thought that hundreds of thousands of people who have contracted the virus are still suffering with symptoms including shortness of breath, fatigue in the weeks and months after they catch the bug.

    Around one in 50 patients suffer for three months and researchers from King’s College London said there are five factors that put you at risk of ongoing suffering.

    The umbrella term covers those who have recovered from the bug – but have since been left with issues such as fatigue, respiratory problems and mental health issues.

    On long Covid, Mr Hancock said: “The virus can affect anyone, or any age and any background.

    “We have already seen worrying numbers of young, fit, healthy people suffering debilitating symptoms months after contracting Covid.

    “Yesterday, a study by King’s College London showed that one in 20 people with coronavirus is likely to have virus symptoms like fatigue, breathlessness, muscle pain and neurological problems for eight weeks or more.”

    But he added: “in the under 50 year old adults its more like one in ten.”

    “There does seem to be some correlation that implies that it is more of a problem amongst younger people.

    “Understanding this long Covid is still in its early stages and an awful lot more research is needed.”

    If I was advising someone in high school now… Consider taking classes by correspondence / by mail. Assuming the student is self-disciplined and clever enough to learn on their own, from books. A man’s chance of finding a wife in high school is very low, from my experiences, so missing out on the social scene seems unlikely to carry much of a cost.
    Assuming their safety is not a stake, I certainly would advise that it is better to spend their time acquiring and practicing skills that can help them succeed in life. Work skills for men, domestic and beauty skills for women, and fitness for both. Skills and physical fitness will likely have more use one week after you graduate, than the popularity you had among your classmates.

    yeah, I made a shitty victim back then and even worse one now. Plus my obvious lack of remorse and apology for laying those little assholes out on the ground till the ambulance arrived.

    high school … i guess i always knew it was a stepping stone to the next step. i had a bff, and we did everything together. had a job i liked – worked with other kids from my high school (a 5A school), and we got along well at work. had a group i hung out with some who did not attend my high school – some were already graduated, some from other high schools. the popular kids were all strung out on drugs, drunk out of their minds on the weekend, and sluts who were talked about on monday’s. none of that appealed to me. i guess i’ve always been my own person.

    years later my youngest sister (by six years) dated a guy i graduated from high school with, and he told my sister that all the guys respected me. a lot. i found that interesting b/c i didn’t even know all the guys except by name b/c half of us had gone to school together since elementary but didn’t have anything to do with each other (the other half came from the other half of the district – not bad, just different location so diff elementary and middle/jr high).

    i was not ever one willing to sacrifice to be in the popular group, but it never really interested me. i also think there were various popular groups b/c our high school was large, but idk; i was in my own place.

    i was told by another guy out here several years ago that i’m an ‘outlier,’ and i think that’s probably true. i’m very, very cautious where i attach myself to b/c i think who we associate with affects how people see us, and there are certain people i don’t care to have be attached to me in any form. so i avoid them.

    my Oldest was quiet in school but not shy or timid, just herself. she didn’t care for most people (still doesn’t), but those whom she does care for, she is intensely loyal. we pulled her out the beginning of her sophomore year to home school. Aspie Girl was always popular and loved, but being aspie, she didn’t really care (i’m giggling with memories 🙂 ). she was the one all the kids in school knew and was kind to. she was the one who had a very strong sense of justice and called people out on there stuff … and stood up for others. she was also the one other girls were jealous of b/c everyone liked her, including the guys, which made the girls jealous, but Aspie-Girl was just friends with all of them. however, she wasn’t bff’s with any of them. she has her sister and Mama, and that’s enough for her. i pulled her out the beginning of her freshman year to home school.

    neither of my girls ever look back and regret missing the rest of public school – except for the music program which was exceptional when they were there.

    Liz – we taught our kids that we would support them if they stood up for themselves, but that they also needed to count the cost ahead of time.

    this dude in my Step Son’s high school kept trying to bully him. he kept responding the way they recommended, till he finally, iirc, punched the kid. they were both put in detention or whatever the punishment, but we stood behind him.

    it was a good lesson – there’s a cost to everything … don’t let the cost stop you from doing what’s right, but be wise and consider that cost ahead of time.

    several years a friend, in another state, asked me to pray for friends of theirs. their 13 year old son was being ripped on social media and texting by two girls. he begged his parents not to make him go to school one day when it was really bad. they told him he had to go to school. he went upstairs, pulled out a gun, and blew his brains out. 13. there are no safe places anymore.

    a woman i work with has an 11 year old daughter who was playing an online game with her friends. this woman said every single kid she knows is playing this game. it’s a RPG that’s like playing ‘house’ in the old days before tech. but, it’s not. my coworker noticed her daughter changing when playing this game. turns out it’s a predator game filled with explicit, deviant sex stuff. she took her daughter’s phone away, and she’s changed back to her sweet little girl. so much seriously sick stuff out there nowdays.

This woman apparently had run out of “real” collateral so she videotaped herself saying that her husband was abusive with their child (yes this skank was married). Anyway, she never actually had sex with Keith (aka Vanguard). He never chose her. I’m convinced that’s what finally set her off. A woman scorned.

    I was “bullied” some in elementary school and the first year of junior high, but once I hit my growth spurt, that shit got shut down right quick. Kind of hard to pick on someone who outweighs you by at least 40 pounds and is 6 inches taller.

    From what I recall, high school was relatively peaceful. In grade 10 (what do y’all call it down south, junior year or something…?) there was a group of four or five douchebag jocks who thought they would start some shit with me, but the one guy who actually tried to step to me realized that he didn’t actually have the balls to throw a punch.

    Maybe it had something to do with me (it was common knowledge that I practically lived at the dojo when not in school), but most likely it was the huge group of malcontents and future criminals who considered me a friend at the time and had surrounded the douche-bros as soon as they started in on me.

    After that, my mother made me change schools. At the new school, there was a pretty sharp divide between the “rich kids” and everyone else, but only in the sense that they had the trendy clothes and some had their own cars. Other than that, everyone mostly got along civilly. No bullying that I noticed, or any of that snobby Mean Girls shit. One guy tried some shit with me soon after I transferred, but I dropped him in the parking lot in front of two or three of his buddies, and after that the rumours started flying about me being some sort of ninja assassin, and folks left me alone.

    So basically, I coasted through high school unscathed thanks to a lot of speculation about my supposed combat skills, which I will fully admit, I didn’t have much of at the time.

It’s obscene, especially knowing all these people will vote…and there is no doubt they’ll vote for lyin’ Biden. The cult collapsed and they’ve learned nothing.

    A long while back, maybe it was even at J4G before Spawny’s was around, I mentioned a friend who was getting married and wanted to go on birth control for her honeymoon. The gynecologist asked what she was using currently, and she said “abstinence”, and the (female) gynecologist laughed at her.
    Well, I checked out her Facebook page and she now has five sons and a daughter. There was a photo of the family she captioned, “My cup runneth over”.
    Life has turned out good for her. I know a lot of people like that, actually.

    Bullshit. These women wanted to be owned. What typically gets branded? Livestock. Property. They are rationalizing, or the writers are, but these women weren’t getting a symbol of power on their pussies because they wanted to be independent. They are just trying to cover their asses and salvage their reputations.

    By the way, what do you call the practice of handling those animals once you have them branded?

    Clyne, who was not charged in the scheme, argued that had she taken the stand, she would have set the record straight about DOS.

    “My testimony would have countered much of what the prosecution’s witnesses alleged and dismantled the Government’s entire theory about DOS, reframing it from a sinister ‘sex cult,’ to a group of women who sought guidance from a trusted and intelligent man, and created a secret sorority for women that implemented some somewhat unconventional practices in the pursuit of growth and personal freedom,” she wrote.Clyne, who was not charged in the scheme, argued that had she taken the stand, she would have set the record straight about DOS.

    From here:
    https://pagesix.com/2020/09/29/allison-macks-wife-nicki-clyne-defends-nxivm-sex-cult/

    Federal prosecutors claimed in 2018 that Mack and Clyne were wed “at the behest of … Keith Raniere” but the two haven’t spoken for a year and a half as the demure blonde awaits sentencing.

    What to say about high school?
    I socialized with a number of different groups unlike many who had a single identity. I was smart and often hung out with the nerds. I was athletic and was respected by the jocks. I played guitar and sometimes hung out with the crazy metalheads. I was never in the super popular group. At the time I told myself it was by choice, but in hindsight, I probably also had the wrong parents to learn to be “cool” from. If I had chosen to try to be one of the really cool kids, I might not have been able to pull it off, in hindsight. Even today when I’m popular, and entertaining my coworkers, it isn’t because I’m “cool”, but more because I say crazy shit that everybody else apparently has the good manners not to say. My mother was very competent but lacked social grace and never had a problem insulting people to their faces. My father was a genius engineer, but reveled in being nerdy. He liked to wear the most loud and out of style clothing and took great joy in choosing his absolutely most embarrassing ensemble to wear whenever he came to visit our school, just to embarrass us kids. He loved embarrassing us and joked that he thought it was good for our character development. I tested out of high school a year early, and so I never had a senior year. But I always felt like the place was a glorified day-care anyway. Most of the popular kids did drugs and fornicated, so I guess I didn’t really miss anything in that regard. I’m just glad its all over. After I graduated from college, occasionally I would have a recurring nightmare that I had to go back again for one more year, and I was then older than all the other students. Kids are cruel to each other, teachers are looney, and school administrators are usually incompetent. School is no place for developing minds.

We need both the best technologies and the best people to win. Improving our diversity falls squarely in Brown’s mandate.

  83. “To be clear, the Air and Space Forces are not setting quotas based on race or gender.”

    You just said there are too many white guys. Too many means you have a quota for how many there “should” be.

    There is evidence to suggest we can do significantly better in diversifying our aviator ranks. Fifty years ago, just before the advent of the all-volunteer military, there was a paucity of women doctors and lawyers in the U.S. Only 4 percent of attorneys were female. Today that number is 37 percent. The same was true for doctors: In five decades we’ve gone from 8 percent to 36 percent, and last year women outnumbered men in medical schools for the first time. The time is now to make similar progress.

    That happened because the schools set quotas. Giving places to inferior female and minority applicants over more-qualified white males.

    Historical comparisons of GO/FOs as a percentage of the total force from the establishment of the National Security Act of 1947 to today show an all-time high, a ratio that has steadily crept upward for more than half a century. GO/FOs grew so quickly during the Korean War that by mid-1952, the total nearly doubled the World War II peak.1 The Services as a whole had more three- and four-star generals for Vietnam than for a vastly larger force during World War II.2 Although there were twice as many GO/FOs at the end of World War II than today, there were nearly 10 times as many Active-duty troops, and more four-stars serve today than served during World War II.3 One study states the obvious: the U.S. military is more top-heavy than it has ever been.

  112. It wasn’t just Barrett’s call to send the note. Rather than limiting employee discussion out of fear of political discourse or running his email by a handful of execs, Expensify’s structure as a very flat organization meant that the entire company weighed in on the decision — whether they were Trump supporters, Biden supporters or fans of third-party candidates like Jo Jorgensen. (Federal Election Commission records show that employees have donated to a wide-range of candidates.)

    “The discussion was really about, how do we be very inclusive about engaging with these dissenting opinions and treat them respectfully? We want to have a diverse environment, because diversity creates a wide range of different opinions and that diversity of perspectives brings creativity,” Barrett said.

    The email started with an idea posted in a Slack channel called #WhatsNext where employees can post a proposal (like endorsing Biden), a problem they’ve identified (“democracy unraveling rapidly in front of our very eyes and we depend upon that for a functioning business”) and a solution (encourage users to vote for Biden). From there, anyone can weigh in on the topic.

    In cases where there’s a dispute over evidence-based claims, like whether Trump is actually suppressing voters, the discussion moves into a separate #Factcheck channel where people can argue their points with supporting links as evidence. If there’s ever a conflict, then the company turns to the Ad Fontes media study as a way to determine what’s the most ethical source on it.

    A group of top-tier employees — Expensify’s equivalent of a Senate — then makes a call after weighing all of the different arguments presented on what the company’s official position will be. In this case, that group concluded that Trump is a threat to democracy and that the company’s policy would be to endorse Biden.

    “The key to running a flat company is you have to have strong processes in place, so everyone just takes the emotion out of it,” Barrett said. “The company has to have some mechanism to make decisions, and those don’t necessarily reflect any individual person’s opinion.”

    So they have a flat company, but they also have a “Senate” of top tier employes. And someone got to choose who the fact checker/final arbiter was going to be.

    “The key to running a flat company is you have to have strong processes in place, so everyone just takes the emotion out of it,”

    All employees know that going against the CEO and C-suite means kissing your job good-bye.

  126. One guy I watch on youtube relates that his real estate guy is telling him that office tenants in NYC are just giving their keys back to the building managers no matter what time they have left on the lease. Any threats are met with a shrug and a “Ok, see you in court.”

    CAREN Act

    I actually saw a Karen in the wild yesterday. I half believed the Karen Phenomenon just an internet meme, but nope – they be real.

    I had stopped to buy gas, and this dumb bitch was having an epic meltdown over the fact that the gas pump “wasn’t working”. Apparently she was unaware that for the past 2 years or so, every gas pump in this city (maybe the whole province; I don’t travel much) has been prepay only. You either use a card directly at the pump, or go inside and pay for $xx on whichever pump.

    Anyway, she cursed out the pump, she cursed out the staff working in the store, she cursed out the government that would impose such an inconsiderate rule upon the populace, and then she tried to push past a semi-attractive male patiently waiting to buy a soft drink and a pack of cigarettes.

    For some strange, inexplicable reason, she actually thought twice about trying to bowl this guy over, and walked around him with a polite “excuse me, sir”. 😉

    Actually – it’s been on for some time. This just makes it more obvious.

    Question: Will they wait unti after Barrett is seated next Tuesday before they appeal this to the U.S. Supreme Court?

    The Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruled in Friday that mail-in ballots cannot be rejected when their signatures don’t match voters’ signatures on file.

    What’s the point of a signature then???

    CARIBBEAN—The U.S. Coast Guard announced today that they discovered a man who has been stranded on a deserted island in the Caribbean Ocean for over 5 months after his boat sunk in a storm. A spokesman for the USCG reported that this heroic man has been responsibly wearing his mask the entire time on the island, even though he is the only living soul in a thousand-mile radius.

    Here’s an idea: How about we try segregating people by race? Have we tried that before? It feels like we’ve tried that before.

    The King County Library System in Washington State decided to try it believing that the only way you can reduce racism is by being more racist.

    Governments are forced to continue with this sham because to do otherwise would court disaster for them. Much better to have disaster for everyone in the private sector, at least for the short term.

    Mike picked up a cake at the Masterpiece Cakeshop today and Jack Philips wasn’t there because he was at another court case.
    This time someone is suing him for “damages”. What damages? Oh, emotional damages. After some tranny lost in court now it is suing for the emotional damages inflicted. I think Jack should sue for emotional damages! This cakeshop is his life. He isn’t even allowed to make wedding cakes anymore and I’m sure that was the main item that kept his business afloat.
    Also, the first case that went to the USSC was such a stressful time his wife had a stroke!
    I didn’t know that, the shop girl told Mike today.
    Here is a link to his shop, if anyone wants to donate there’s a donation option.

    That wasn’t real segregation. Real segregation has never been given a fair shot.

    The dream of the Elect, I suppose, would be a worldwide oligarchy under themselves, where the vast majority, “for their own good”, of course, would be living in a hybrid of the mindless hedonism of “Brave New World” and the surveillance and information manipulation dictatorship of “1984”.

    Make no mistake. Trump is hated by the Elect not (just) because of his blustering manner, his hyperbole, his Queens accent, or his tendency to regard counterattack as the best defense. He represents the antithesis of everything the Elect stands for: an outsider, a Tribune of the Plebs, somebody who believes that the country he leads is greater than its Elect, and somebody who places tangible achievements over credentials and prestigious mutual congratulation prizes. And who meanwhile, more than anyone else, is responsible for the transformation of the GOP into the Elect’s worst nightmare: a truly broad-based party of limited government populism that is making inroads into the core constituencies of the Elect’s party.

    “If they’re not real, Biden would strongly, clearly assert that the emails are fake. What reason could there be to fail to make a clear assertion? I think the answer is that he knows it’s an assertion that can be proven false, leaving him plainly exposed as an outrageous liar.”
