This dude is obviously a flame. But on that note, i met up with some guy in college that i went to middle school with. Back then, he was known to smoke a lot and roll a lot. He was very bright, but was always one of those people who never listened to what anyone said and had to try everything for himself and make the mistakes for himself. Well we became friends again in college, majored in the same major, etc. Then at graduation, he graduated sum cum laude (top 1% or so at my school) to my extreme surprise. Since, hes been working on Capital Hill and deferred his admission to gtown law so he can "enjoy" the new congress some more.
Id be more concerned with being surrounded with squares like the OP (though hes not legit) than the person he described.
