Were You Cool in School? Take the Test......

This is a pretty cool test, check it out.

This test is based on how cool you were in High School--what crowd you ran with, etc., it's pretty accurate.

You may want to send it to your friends to see if they've changed.

LET'S SEE IF YOU ARE A COOL PERSON: It only Takes 1min

If you gotta take a test to decide if you are/were cool, you ain't/weren't.

I agree with Chip, which means I took the test. And, I have to say, the results seemed pretty accurate

None of the questions made sense to me but I am still as cool as I ever was according to that exhaustive survey.

a) I know I wasn't cool. I was the jock/geek/brooding guy. I didn't fit in with most and didn't have a crowd, BUT knew everyone and could mingle with anyone. I thought it was pretty cool at the time (I still think if I had been shorter and skinny I would have been jock meat, being 6'5 and 240 in highschool tends to bring its own level of clout (or fear, whichever one))

b) the test says - I am a dickhead...sweet.

I'm crumbling under the pressure here. Life was much easier being a dork.

I don't need to take any tests. I was never cool and I'm still not. I like adulthood. Cool is no longer the end all/be all.

Which is exactly why you ARE cool.

Why would you take a test for something you could already figure out?

I often rode my bike to high school, when other kids were driving. Case closed.

I agree with everything except the "I like adulthood" part, I hate adulthood, I take my responsabilities quite seriously but I still hate adulthood. I was and always will be the "dork" "looser" "loner" that everyone had no problems with, but the funny part is that I liked and still like being all of the above, it wasn't a choice as I just went with what I felt was right so no cool test for me thank you I like me, god forbid I should take a test and find out I was cool all along! Id have to change my whole life!....NOT!

I definitely wasn't cool until I switched schools for the last two years of high school - as I immediately got a spot on the varsity lacrosse team at the new school (they were kinda crap and my previous school had been pretty good), I sort of got immunity from the hazing that the other new folk got. I was also a bit of a hippy, so they didn't really know what to make of me, and had a long-distance girlfriend, so wasn't expected to be rated based on the girls I hung out with. So I bizarrely jumped into essentially the 'cool' set - or at least the 'immune from harassment by the asses' set - when I switched schools.

but I can't change the initial page. Sorry
