    And I honestly can’t see anything that sets them apart from Dakota.

    1. Last hopeful off course comment, but to have an additional discussion outlet beyond just talking about recent strips and just some relaxing OT discussions, I made a TV Tropes thread for the series:

    Don’t be a stranger.

    2. Now for my bits on tonight:

    - Bet some of the Nicknames can’t even be said here:-(.

    - Yep contrary to what the popular folks think the world doesn’t always stop spinning for their benefit.

    - And Dakota gets some real nightmare fuel tonight:-).

    8 nicknames? What? They didn’t have anything better to do?

    There is a strip where Dakota wants Pheobe to be cool with her friends so they can talk about goblins and unicorns. Not Alejandra, but the other two popular girls are in it. They sit around, talk, and look bored the whole time if I recall.

    Right now Alexandra doesn’t have anything better to do. In a few years she’ll try to wrest control of a band from someone named Josie.

    Nerdy kids ignore “popular” kids because they are only popular among their own kind. To the nerds the others are the “self-centered, egotistical” kids.

    True story. I was a dork’s dork. I didn’t even know who most of the popular kids were in high school, but twenty years later at a reunion the prom queen asked my why I never paid attention to her. Huh?

    It’s true, Phoebe. Sometimes, ignore-ance is truly bliss!

    If our egos were that delicate, we would become followers of someone like Dakota and mock people who don’t even pay attention to us.

    The thing is that nerds are passionately interested in other things, whether its their studies, certain kinds of music, video games, computer programming, ect… Why would they waste their time paying attention to boring people?

    Yes. We nerdy kids had better things to do than pay attention to the popular kids.

    Dakota’s path to kindness is still long, but she continues to go, one step after another, firmly.

    Well, a nerd’s head has more things in the head than popular kids have.

    Welcome to reality, Dakota. We’ve been expecting you.

    I’m sure Dakota has come up with at least eight names for Phoebe. I can think of two off the top of my head:

    1. Fobe (a mispronunciation of her name)

    2. Booger Princess

    Can anybody remember some of the others? I think one may have been “Dweeby Phoebe.”

    The power of indifference is remarkable and underappreciated. Particularly now, in the time of social media, the degree to which figures are ignored drives an enormous amount of behavior.

    And at the 20 year reunion the popular kids have gained 200 lbs, smoke 3 packs a day or are in jail. Or have 5 grand kids.

    I have a feeling Dakota was kicked out of the “Popular Girls” group because of Alejandra.

    I was once told, don’t worry so much about what people think of you because, for the most part, they don’t.
