I considered coming out of the nerd closet, but I soon realized the sort of intelligence he had: looked at least 30 years old, swore loudly at random times (thank god it was a 220 person lecture hall), had extremely dirty clothes; was obviously a agriculture major and spent the day working on the university's farm and for whatever reason kept a large wrench in his pocket. He never once looked up from his laptop during the two hour lecture, which makes me wonder, why do people like this bother going to class? After accessing the situation, I decided it wasn't in my best interest to speak to him.
God, I hate general education classes. They're all filled with idiots (though, I generally look down upon anyone who doesn't study a technical field; afterall, if I'm working hard at EE, everyone else better be doing difficult shit, too).
