Revenge of the Nerds

‘Cool kids’ beware. A new study says life’s gonna start to suck for you after high school.

The study — published in Child Development — tracked 184 kids for 10 years, staring when they were 13-year-olds.

Researchers found that students who displayed “romantic behavior and deviant acts” (such as vandalism) early in their teen years faced long-term relationship difficulties, high risk of alcohol and drug abuse, and “elevated levels of criminal behavior.” They say ‘nerds’ are less likely to be involved in “deviant acts” later in life.

When made aware of the study, the cool kids just rolled their eyes and said “Whatever.”
