Here is a confusing thing: at some point in time, whoever controls fashion trends decided that glasses and mom jeans were worthy of being incorporated into that Byzantine trying-to-get-laid dance known as “the youth culture.” As a result, it’s now nigh impossibleÂ to tell who gets shoved into lockers regularly and who just likesÂ Animal Collective. (The nerds, meanwhile, have become the new jocks, what with controlling the world and making billions off your personal info and all. But I digress.) In honor of these topsy turvy times, I challenge you to tell the difference between various hipsters and various ’80s movie nerds. Answers are at the end. No peeking, spaz!
