1.) a person considered to be socially awkward, boring, unstylish, etc.
2.) an intelligent but single-minded person obsessed with a nonsocial hobby or pursuit: a computer nerd. dictionary.com
This definition will certainly fit a large grouping of individuals and not all of them would be intelligent.
I remember “That Student “ who appeared to be socially awkward and very smart.
We teased them because of the way that they dressed behaved or spoke . Like “Proper “
Yes, that was the name that we gave him.
Kids can be mean and rude but most of all ignorant.
1.) lacking in knowledge or training; unlearned: an ignorant man.
2.) lacking knowledge or information as to a particular subject or fact: ignorant of quantum physics.
3.) uninformed; unaware.
4.) due to or showing lack of knowledge or training: an ignorant statement.dictionary.com
As I got older I realize that the joke was on me.
It really isn’t a joke as much as I laugh at myself about the way that I behaved as a kid I knew better.
This short “Moonwalk” into my life is necessary to the story that I’m about to share.
And the will begin to make sense.
Revenge Of The Nerd:The Movie
Geeky college students Gilbert (Anthony Edwards) and Lewis (Robert Carradine) are evicted from their dormitory when the Alpha Betas — who recently burned down their own fraternity house by accident — confiscate the building. When the college forces the freshmen to live in the gym, Gilbert, Lewis and their fellow dorks relocate to a run-down house. When the Alpha Betas, led by jock Stan (Ted McGinley), repeatedly humiliate them, the nerds plot revenge. wikipedia.com
I honestly haven’t seen any of the “Revenge “ movies 84’ 87’ and 92
I do however understand the Premise, Plot and Theme and that is why I chose this title.
Fast forward 2017 practically everything that we do and need to know is on our Computers, Tablet or Cellphone.
All the information that you will ever need to know is right there at your fingertips, Literally.
There is also something’s there that we don’t want to know or need to know or at least want to know or need to know “Yet”.
We know “Beautiful People”, “Beautiful Happy Lives” and (The Happy,Famous Perfect Rich)
There are people that were bullied and mistreated in school or life that get a sense of confidence and consolation when they can hide behind a Tweet, Text or comment.
The Power Of Anonymity:
There is a certain sense of gratification when you are anonymous.
You can be as abusive or abrasive as you like.
There is seemingly no consequence.
There are people that use social media to push and promote political agendas and play the role of the “Devil’s Advocate”
Many people use this medium as a way to promote hate (Sometimes for their own race)and Family.
I have an acquaintance that is slightly overweight and she spends day on top of days “Trolling,Scrolling and Bashing Overweight People
This is a disturbing trend that has and will exist until the time comes that people become unglued from heir Televisions , Phones and Computers.
You see no one bothers to fact check and in most cases no one cares.
It’s Not Me, Not My Business:
There is a consensus that it isn’t hurtful and that the Famous, Rich, Popular need to be “Humbled and brought back to earth.
We love to see the “Mighty Fall”
This is a sad and desperate behavior that has become a part of the way we deal with each other.
What do we do when it’s “Juicy” gossip?
Trolling and Lurking is a term used for people that have nothing better to do than “Watch You”
They may attempt to cause problems (Gossiping) about the content of your post,sometimes telling others about your tough day or even insinuate that “Your Post” is about someone in your circle.
I often tell my Friends and Family “Don’t Engage”
Here’s that I found in wikihow :
Ignore it. Gossip is oftentimes best dealt with by paying no attention to it at all. Most people don’t think very hard about gossip – if they see you react in a way that seems agitated or ashamed, they might assume the rumor’s true, even if it’s not. A good policy is to react to gossip as if it doesn’t bother you. When you hear that there’s a rumor going around about you, simply blow it off with a comment like, “Heh. You’d have to be pretty dumb to believe that.” Don’t dwell on it. Other people will take their social cues from you. If you act like the rumor isn’t worth your time, there’s a good chance they’ll follow suit.
When you hear gossip about yourself, laugh it off. . Act as if it’s ridiculous! Share a chuckle about it! Turn the tables by making the person who started the rumor the butt of the joke – how hilarious is it that they actually thought spreading a dumb rumor about you would work?
I do realize that I began talking about the internet and the plight of the Rich,Popular, Powerful and Famous
It is also interesting how people perceived or measure us everyday people.
Sometimes the people around us will see and imagine things about us that we can’t even see or imagine for ourselves.
And in fear of our possible (Rise) feel threatened by it.
Whatever the reason it is important to treat everyone with dignity and respect.
And take no one or situation for granted
YOU ARE BEING WATCHED
For any number of reasons
