Okay guys get this. So there are these two or three kids at school that seem to think they're so intimidating (they might be for some people) that like to pick on me and sometimes a friend of mine also. They're your typical bullies, ugly hair, earings, and one that always wheres a leather jacket. My friend was just telling me about how fun it is to use big words that no else knows when talking to people of this kind (he's kind of a nerd like me). So one of the dorks approaches me and my friend at lunch when we're standing outside the cafeteria. He starts picking on us, me in particular. I don't remember exactly what he said, but he came up into my face so that our foreheads were just inches apart. He just stared at me for a while, while I met his level stare without moving or blinking. Eventually, the kid gives up and starts to walk away. After he was a few feet from us, my friend snickers. "Ya," I said, "It's just the connotation minutia laughing." I knew pefectly well what the words meant, but just strung them together in an arbitrary way. The kid turns around and says, "what did you call me?" "Just something about the connotation minutia laughing," I said. "You think that's funny?" he replies. "Mildly," I retorted. So then the kid gives up again and walks away. I can tell that I'm really getting inside of this guy's head. All it should take is a little bit of this slow mental torture for a few weeks, then maybe I can get him to cry. I was thinking maybe I could embarass him by walking up to him in a crowd of his friends, then just hold his hand and stand there. I know that revenge is not a good thing, but think of it as that I'm being like Socrates, and showing him the light. Anybody have anymore good ideas?
