You are filled with determination. (R/GD/TT)
In my English class, we had to do this projects of sorts about fitting in. In my little group, the topic eventually veered to school cliques (nerd, jock, etc) and the school hierarchy. I said that it would be better if everyone was more or less equal, but my friend told me that these cliques are needed in schools because "Everyone needs someone to make fun of". He says that it's hardwired into the human mind that if someone is below us in status, we will always treat them like crap. We need someone that we can make fun of so that we ourselves can feel better about ourselves, according to him. Yes, he was completely serious, considering he was very willing to say this to the whole class, though the bell rang before that happened.
