The thing is, the nerds always win in the end. The jocks are loud and threatening and big and brash and win early on, but the nerds are subversive and thoughtful and calculating and subtle and play the long game by design, without even realizing it. Long after the jock earns his beer gut and bald spot and consumer BMW trophies and Stepford wife, the nerd is lifehacking and fittit’ing and juggling offers from both jobs and the opposite sex and making cool shit and not giving a shit about material things except when they might change the world like Bitcoin.
