    In retrospect, I was always cooler than I thought I was.
    Dangit, I almost only post in Foo, so my post count is abysmal.

    I never made it as far as worrying about being cool. I just hoped I didn't look too idiotic. Now I couldn't care less (obviously).

    No. Takes too much effort to care about what others think about me.

    No, in fact one of the reasons my wife married me was in her words "It's cool that you don't care if other people think your cool or not." I realized early on that the people who thought they were cool or others thought were cool were usually full of them selves. Plus krobinson103 said it very well FTW, when they don't like you they leave you alone.

    Nah, I was Switzerland as a kid. I was decent at sports but not a jock, took part in arts and sciences but not a geek, didn't have enemies and was generally pretty kind to and got along with everyone. Had a good job in High School that allowed me better than average trappings the cool kids liked so I was never ridiculed. I had no need to be cool.

    You can't please all the people, all of the time. Just do what makes you happy without hurting others.

    Define "cool". For example, the guys in The Big Bang Theory are not "cool" to trendy people, but they are very cool to "nerds". Some people like being a nerd and they have their own version of cool. So do bat-cavers, Emos, hicks, jocks, and furries. I think deep down everyone wants to be cool within their group.

    Uncool is the new cool. It is called revenge of the nerds.

    Depends on how one means it.

    I care that some people and groups think I'm an OK guy. In some cases they could even say I'm cool.

    But if one means do I care if the cool kids think I'm cool the answer is Hell No.
    Perish any man who suspects that these men either did or suffered anything unseemly.
