Another trip down highschool memory lane.
Our author takes on the persona of L.G. Blazo, rebellious teenager extraordinaire. He makes verbal strikes against everything from standardized education: "If I ever actually need this information I can just google it", replacing the old "if I ever need math, I can just use a calculator" mantra. To stereotyped meathead jocks. To teachers who are simply cogs in the great machine, not even deserving of the title "human", and instead being dubbed as "drones" or "robots".
Then we have the self-assured, halfway-subtle tooting of one's own horn throughout. The author is very demure about his debate victory over a valedictorian (and future Harvard graduate), and almost always victorious when faced with a an old fashioned battle of wits, or tête-à-tête.
All in all, I have to admit, Blazo does have a fairly excellent literary voice. He simply needs to move past the highschool mentality, and apply it to more worthwhile topics.
