i saw the reincarnation of james dean today. no kidding, he goes to my school now. we're talkin' red jacket, white t-shirt, ripped jeans, the sideburns, the cigarette, the thick-rimmed glasses... this guy even had the attitude down. i don't know what it is about the james dean attitude that people normally can't imitate, but whatever it was, this guy had it. it's not just the tough guy edge.... i think you also have to be mildly interested and willing to crack a few jokes to really nail the 'tude.
well done, strange techie. well done.
