Nerds are never really cool even if they're the elected leaders

High School National Merit Scholars may have full control of the PA and the paper but that doesn't mean they have any real power in the school. School cool runs in different rivers than student government or GPA. Same thing with real life. Nerds only think they lead. It is so annoying when they realize that life is just like high school because college isn't like the real world or high school. When they realize how often they're being defied or ignored, they can often become very insistent, even heavy-handed, which just makes thing even worse.
