On the third or fourth time my best friend and I went to see the movie "Alien", he snuck his camera into the theater. He kept it hidden all the way till the end, when Sigourney Weaver strips down to her underwear:


...but of course he forgot to turn off the flash and there was this blinding flash of light and a loud "Ker-Click" of the camera shutter. Of course, every eye in the theater turned to where we were sitting in the front row, trying to burrow into our seats. Everyone in the theater started laughing. Yeah. It was one of my proudest nerd moments.

I took an alligator off my dad's Lacoste socks and sewed it onto a cheap shirt in grade school because my parents wouldn't buy me a Lacoste shirt like all the other kids were wearing. Well, the second I walked in with it, the cool kids spied me in it, knew something was up... they chased me down the hall, then forcibly grabbed the collar and turned it inside out to see the tag... saw it was a K Mart special, and started laughing and yelling it out in the hall. That was a humiliating day at York Mills Public School.

I also used to make my Princess Leia Doll have sex with my Six Million Dollar Man doll. Is that nerdy enough?

I too thought I should try and look like Don Johnson.



That's really really uncool.

When I was in the 7th grade I was the first guy in the entire school, grades 3-12, to own a pair of acid wash jeans. Does that make me cool or un-cool?!?! And was it only my school that for a year all the cool kids wore inside-out sweatshirts?

When I was in high school, I tried to look like John Denver. Not cool now, not cool then.

Try having to buy your clothes at a place called Jo Ann's Chubby Shop. Lots of cool there. And how could I forget about the time I decided that looking like Stevie Nicks would be sheer heaven? Got the requisite clothes and found the perfect boots- felt like I was on stilts. Unfortunately, I only wore the outfit once- I couldn't get the hang of walking practically tiptoed and just wobbled like a newborn colt when I tried to walk. Then I got a heel caught in a crack in the sidewalk and it came off. My car was a good 6 blocks away. That was very cool too.

The cool kids at my high school had all the best parties with top of the line beer like "Mickey's Big Mouth". They understood the power of Malt.

We liked "Lucky Lager" because the puzzles under the caps confused us and reminded us that we were not cool.

I think Lucky might have been a dollar more.

I download MP3s of these recordings from the Interweb. I just downloaded a copy of the original "It's a Small World" record from the '64 NY World's Fair.

The "cool kid" groups I always encountered were mainly "cool" because they proclaimed themselves thus. By limiting access and interaction they kept their little cliques exclusive. For some reason their artificial status was desirable by those on the outside. I never got that, the "cool kids" were in general the least creative, interesting, or intelligent kids around. Usually they just had the "right" clothes and gossiped a lot.

Of course "cool kids' groups are alive and well in the grownup world. From private clubs to gated communities to Costco membership. And for some reason folks still want in. But exclusive groups know they need to remain exclusive because they pretty much can't hack it in the real world. It's kind of similar to being quarantined, but instead of the general population not wanting the disease to spread an exclusive population is terrified they may catch something.

I like the arrangement: Exclusivity is a mindset I'd rather not see spread. I'd rather see it kept in a gilded cage.

Yes it is, but not as cool and exclusive as "Sam's Club"
