yup...i remember those guys....In my school they were called as 'paalvadi' or 'Thair satham'.

But normally those guys will be in the first bench and will always be in the first 5 ranks...They all are probably Doctors right now

Well these days I swear only at myself... once there was a interesting incident... while playing basketball, when I was frustrated with myself I said "What the" loud... and the coach on the next court heard it and thot I was swearing in tamil and blasted me and made me sit outside for the rest of the practice...
