Intellectualism, it’s all the rage these days. Cult heroes, such as Joey Barton of Queens Park Rangers fame, are ditching the booze, hookers and cocaine for more scholarly pursuits, such as studying for a University degree in Philosophy (presumably because he thinks he’s found a Nietzsche in the market). The annoyingly articulate Russell Brand, notable for his fanciful and vast vocabulary, is trying his hand at politics under the guise of the second coming of the Messiah.
For the non-celebrity though, it really is a tough line to tread. On one hand, girls are wet for intelligent guys, but delve too deep into the land of the learned and risk entering the realm of ‘Geek’. I can provide you with some simple tips to stay on the socially acceptable side of this chasm – but be quick. Whilst there is still plenty of room to ride this bandwagon, it is only a matter of time before Dappy jumps on and we all have to get off.
