But he is really a Geek for life.
Greek for life: " hey guys i'm so great because i was raped when i went to jail last night!"
Very strong sense of identity and pride. Sense of belonging to something great. Passion.
Being born Greek is a blessing. No Greek would want to be anything else. Ever.
(Unlike many other cultures who convert to Judaism or whatever, you will never hear of a Greek converting to anything else. But you will see many people, including Jews, wishing they were Greek).
