If nerds ruled the world

Would my life have been different if I’d been on the A list as a kid (versus the D list)?  I often wonder what my life would be like without kids, but only just now thought about what my life might have been like if I’d been popular and pretty.

What if Nerds ruled the world?  Ok, not “Revenge of the Nerds” nerds, but the normal “guys” like the guy from Microsoft or the normal woman like…ME.  If Nerds ruled the world, no one would care about football or baseball but would instead be interested in the marching band and the halftime show.  In Nerd world, smart people would be class president and homecoming queen and prom queen.  The pretty (hence, popular) people would vote for the smart people because the smart people tutor the Pretties and the Pretties would value that behavior.

The Pretties would also want to date the Smarties, but the Smarties and the Pretties don’t date because who wants to look at a pretty face all night when you can have scintillating and intelligent conversation?  On Nerd planet, acceptance is the norm.  Nerds accept everyone and value their individuality.  All the “cool kids” take advanced calculus or can speak fluent Sanskrit, quote Beowulf in Old English, or play the tuba (it’s actually a sousaphone).

In Nerdtopia, every guy wants to bring home a smart gal to meet mom.  Pretty guys want a smart wife and then mother of his child who will pass on the smart genes so their child will be popular in school, make a skijillion dollars and take care of their parents.  In the Nerdiverse, government works for the benefit of the people.  No one goes hungry, loses a job or has to fight in a war.  In fact there is no war because the Smarties work their problems out logically and rationally, without fighting.  To be sure, there is a military, but only the Smarties succeed in it because who wants to give a gun to a pretty?  Smarties know everything about war and weapons and don’t need to use lethal force.  A pretty might not think things through and might shoot first, ask questions later.

On Nerdivision, TV shows like “Nova” and “Keeping up Appearances” would be on prime time, because the Smarties value Britcoms and PBS.  In the Nerd job market, teachers and child care workers would be among the highest paying careers and athletics the lowest, except the Olympics cuz Nerds Curl or play Archery.

Ahhhhh, if only…

Regarding Queen of Everything
