Jocks on the other hand are the people that make fun of nerds, for being smart. Makes no sense.
They just don't understand they are going to drop out of highschool join a NFL team for a week, break their leg and then have to work at McDonalds for the rest of their life.
Bill gates for example.
Many have theorized to why nerds have been accepted into the mainstream. Two popular theories is that when video games became mainstream nerds and their mortal enemies the jocks were able to become friends. Also because computers now dominate our society nerds are accepted.
Also take note that the portion of nerds who are still shunned from society have became either a goth or an emo.
