I’m thinking it might be time to hand the world back to high-school jocks. This “revenge of the nerds” thing isn’t working out so well.
Exhibit A: I am watching Surviving R. Kelly on Lifetime, and it seems that the quiet, nerdish kid (above right) who grew up to become a powerful music mogul (above left) is … not well.
Exhibit B: Geeky Mark Zuckerberg, who grew up to become an evil genius.
Sadly, the nerds don’t handle power well once they get it.
At least the jerk jocks have early experience with power and jerkdom, so they’re better at it once they reach adulthood. Plus, they have always been jerk jocks, so the rest of us have learned how to keep them in line.
Tulsi Gabbard: Good-looking babe, but not enough personality.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: Good-looking babe, but too much personality.
That fake photo of “Ocasio-Cortez” in the bathtub – if you zoom in on the faucet, you can clearly see that the person in the tub is George Bush.
The Disaster Artist is a decent movie, but if you haven’t seen the “disaster” that inspired it, director Tommy Wiseau’s The Room, be sure to watch that one first.
