This sucks :/ well at least this should give you motivation to actually work out a bit more and try a workout program like P90X. Just sayin' for your health

I've never been able to understand why in America just because someone's good at sport they have to be the king of the school. In Ireland sport has nothing to do with social status..

I'm 6'2 weigh 200 lbs and bench 255. Yes I'm in football. But guess what? I am definitely not a jock. I play more video games than I work out, and I treat the "nerds" and the "cool kids" all the same. With respect as long as I get it back. Don't judge based off of the school title. That means nothing when it comes to character.

#2 I wasn't saying that's what you meant I was just commenting on the fact it does seem to be the case in a lot of schools! Most Americans I know seem to agree that "jocks" and "nerds" etc are actual social statuses in their school's.

I'm going to try and phrase this the least sexist way, but usually all the guys a friends, and the girls are bitches to each other and actually stereotype nerds and jocks and stuff, I was always in between, but it's still never a fair system.

111 - I see where you're coming from; the media generally seems to reinforce the idea that American schools are split between nerds, jocks, etc. Personally, I don't really think that's how it is in most American schools but I wouldn't really know since I only know the schools around my area. xD Like #27 said, at my school & the schools nearby, the idea of social class doesn't really exist. Heck, the smarter kids are always much more respected at my school & it's a school that's not doing so well. And generally the nerds are the cooler ones and they can be really athletic and sociable too. I know that the media always make it seem like American schools have social classes but in reality, as much as I've experienced, we don't.

94 I'm 6'3" 290 and I played football too. And I've never been mean to anyone at my school. Some of my best friends weren't some of the cool people. I feel like that whole "jock" is only in the movies or sometime ago.

At my school there are definately groups like band geek, jock, prep, skater douche, etc. Me and my friends all play sports and I guess you could call us jocks but we are nice to almost everybody

The lower classmen in my school seem particularly fixated on different social groups, but when it comes right down to it with the upper classmen, they're much better about putting aside differences. It's mostly a matter of learning to accept others regardless of where society says they should be categorized.

212 my school was almost the same way. Except on a much much smaller scale. They didn't completely fixate on it but if you looked really hard enough it's there. Our junior year we all became friends.

Why does everyone assume that just because we place a lot of emphasis on sports, our athletes are automatically assholes who treat other non-athletes like crap? My school and even school district was never like that. Athletes are well-known, sure. But not everyone is a stuck up, egocentric jerk just because they enjoy playing sports. *sigh*

In my highschool (which is not in the US) you couldn't simply point out some stereotype, each class had it's own dynamics, people got along differently according to their class, and you could pretty much see a class in which everyone was nice to each other, then go next door and see the exact opposite, as for the stereotype of US schools, for what I've heard from people who go there it's mostly true, at least in most highschools, for those of you who say there's no such thing in your schools, that's just great, and that's how it's supposed to be, although I don't think you can speak for your entire school based only on how things are for you.

It might be, 33, but that doesn't mean OP's assailant is off the hook. Otherwise we can justify all our bad actions with them being karma for whoever they affected. It would be nice, though!

Firefly, you a boxer or were you just referring to delivering a bag-shot? Either way, I do agree with you. Most people I fought were bigger and/or taller than me, and one of the tactics that worked the best was in-fighting: Up under their arms against their bodies, and don't give them a moment to think. It's a case of "closer to danger, further from harm." And it does seem most very large guys can't fight very well, cause they've never really had to. Just too used to leaning on people and throwing their weight around, casually. But I should add the obvious: sometimes the bigger they are, the harder they really do kick your ass. ;)
