America Is The Coolest, Say People Who Have Not Been Paying Attention

Remember that kid in high school who played by his own rules and flouted authority at every turn but still managed to get good grades and was the one everybody, even the teachers, secretly wanted to be? The one who could be counted on to do the right thing when it really came down to it? Well, even though he has spent the years since letting himself go, spending money he doesn’t have and generally doing everything he can to sabotage himself, people still think he’s cool. Man, the rest of the world must really suck.
