Study Finds Cool High School Kids Don’t Fare Well: A 10-year study published in Business Insider found that many of the kids who were considered “cool” in high school ended up abusing alcohol and drugs, having trouble maintaining a steady, healthy relationship and often having problems with the law.
So I guess its just not cool being cool anymore - and I'm cool with that. But really, the joke’s on them, because I wasn't cool as a teen, and I still have drug, alcohol and relationship problems! In fact, I spent nearly 6 years in high school trying to be cool and it just never happened.
And speaking of cool, didn’t I just see some 50-year-old guy with a mullet wearing a Huey Lewis and the News t-shirt? If only someone had warned him. On the other hand, Keith Richards still seems to be doing OK.
So maybe I’ll call up a few of those “cool kids” from high school - and when they pick up the phone - I’ll just hang up on them. And come my next high school reunion, I’m gonna be sure and let them know what losers Business Insider says they really are.
