Interesting, but very long, essay here: Why Nerds Are Unpopular. Intriguing theories about zero-sum popularity contests, priorities, and the fact that pre-modern teenagers weren’t universally considered miserable, hormonal creatures, because they functioned as junior members of adult society, while modern teenagers create their own Lord of the Flies-esque societies in a vacuum at secondary schools…because the schools offer nothing more than a holding pattern before moving on to college. Life without real meaning creates its own meaning, as it were.

Not much else going on today, apart from work. More later.

Edit: I removed a couple of links, and added one, over there on the left. Added: the livejournal of Justin Achilli (Line Developer of White Wolf’s VAMPIRE, and a nifty-keen DJ as well).
