Columbus, The Indians, and Human Progress Arawak men and women, naked, tawny, and full of wonder, emerged from their villages onto the island's beaches and swam out to get a closer look at the strange big boat. When Columbus and his sailors came ashore, carrying swords, speaking oddly, the Arawaks ran to greet them, brought them food, water, gifts. He later wrote of this in his log:
I was 6 foot 3 inches. I could have let it all get into my headI played football, basketball, baseball, and I swam. I graduated highschool with an associates degree from local community college. I was also a senior nationalist swimmer, and a scholastic all american.
I got scholarships for all 4 of my sports.
At school I just treated everyone as a friend and tried to be nice. I was easily the most athletic kid in my whole state, not to mention my school. I ended up going to Stanford. On my way to a swim meet one night my senior year, I got in a car crash with my friend driving. I almost died, but my friend didn't make it.
I had to be hospitalized, the doctor said I had a 50 50 chance. Once I got back to school, I was treated like even more of a celebrity than before.
Some kid came up to me and said he wished he could be me.

Added 3 years ago by guest, 16 points yep. Added 3 years ago by guest, 4 points I'm a jock and most of us are smart and popular. We wear Nike and hollister.
Lots of girls like us Added 5 years ago by guest, points Jocks are sports fans with few or no other interests who are popular for the sole reason of being good at sports.
In my experience, many misuse their popularity, are very egocentric, and are typicly not that great of a person, but they still manage to have more "friends" than most other people. But of course this doesn't address the main point.
I think that jocks are sometimes stupid egocentric jerks, but they can occasionally be nice, good people. Added 5 years ago by guest, -3 points people say jocks are hot but dumbasses Student who plays school sports There's a difference Added 7 years ago by guest, 18 points At all previous comments, if a jock is simply taken to be a person who participates actively in school athletics, then there is no need to attach additional information which does not exist.
Of course, all of this may or may not be rubbish if you do not agree with the given definition. Otherwise, designating a specific associated intelligence is completely arbitrary.

Added 7 years ago by guest, points If your saying that jocks are stupid think again Added 7 years ago by guest, 8 points don't forget this is sterotype!
