I was terrified during middle school of getting on the bus. There was a bully who would choke other kids. I think he was more than an average bully; a scary little fucker.

And the bus drivers just drove on.

In any event, I've resigned myself to the fact that the bullies tend to win out more than the bullied later on in life. The jocks become the heroic laymen, the punks become today's rockstars/underground idols. The nerds turn out as the villains of society for their success, CEOs, executives and the like if they don't end up serving the "cool kids."

I know this firsthand from going to one of two-or-three schools in my country that could get me into a college back Stateside. Eventually, when I did snap, I couldn't follow through with it and got wailed on twice as hard and withdrawn (lest I stay and risk a lawsuit from the rich kids that did the wailing on). I ended up in a college where the degree is barely worth the paper it's printing on and I'm hoping to live out my existence Stateside with what's left of my dignity.

I do smile a bit inwardly whenever I hear stories of retaliatory violence. There is nothing so gratifying as vindication, if only second hand.

The kids aren't alright. But what the fuck're you gonna do about it?

He did, but it got deleted. Glad it's been restored, sans the lines that were a bit too "violency" for this site.

In any event, I've resigned myself to the fact that the bullies tend to win out more than the bullied later on in life.

In many cases, this is unfortunately true, but there are exceptions. Here's a great one in the "living well is the best revenge" category:

BARBARA WALTERS: Let's go back a bit. When you were a kid, you have described yourself as a wimp. You were the kid that they would beat up or that they would -- what did they do -- lower you over a ledge, an edge, or -- what's that all about?

HARRISON FORD: We had this school was built up to the height of the road above some lower-lying agricultural fields. And each day, the school's bullies...would come, and they would drag me to the edge of the parking lot and throw me down the slope. And then I would get up, and I'd crawl back up to the top, and they'd take me and sling me off again.

BARBARA WALTERS: Why didn't you fight back?

HARRISON FORD: Oh, because if I -- because I always operated under the theory that if you -- if you're fighting with somebody...and you hit them, it was probably going to make them even madder.

BARBARA WALTERS: What a poor schnook you were.

HARRISON FORD: Oh, no...The girls loved me.

BARBARA WALTERS: Why? They don't like the wimp.

HARRISON FORD: I was a wimp with character...I never gave up. I just never let them win, really.

I highly doubt the idiots who threw Harrison Ford off that slope are enjoying anything remotely close to his lifetime money and success :)

More examples here.

re: #3 publicityStunted

So they ended up becoming celebrities (and/or shoplifters). Big whoop. I went to a school full of teen stars.
