I was watching a new Disney movie with Eli 10.2 on Friday night called "Geek Charming."

The basic set-up of the movie is that the most popular girl in school, who is obsessed with being popular, winds up falling in love with an unpopular film geek. What's interesting, though, is that even though the movie was goofy, the way they described popularity very much mirrors how it works in real life.

At one point, the popular girl was explaining to the film geek how popularity worked and how rigid the separate levels were. She explained the multiple levels in detail, and while she was still talking, Eli 10.2 said, "Hmm. Popularity is like the Hindu caste system."
