I beseech thee, oh great hive mind. Help me think of some creative high school superlative ideas.

Superlatives are those funny titles given to seniors before they graduate ( 'Most likely to succeed' ). They can't be too offensive or obscure, but everything else is fair game.

I was voted 'most likely to end up married with 3 kids'.

I wish I knew how the hell they came to that conclusion.

Hmm. In my senior yearbook entry it said "most likely to parachute into Moscow wired with explosives" (not reflective of me in any way, and probably a fantasy projection by the guy who put it in, who is now in military intelligence). But it is funny, and I hereby bequeath it to you.

I got 'Best Rapper' with this kid. As you can see, he deserved it. Although I was massively embarrassed at the time, we joked about it when we ran into each other at a club a few years ago.

I think there was also a 'Most Plaid' but that was during the grunge years and is likely invalid at this time.

Most iconoclastic.

I got "Most focused" which was both completely true and completely untrue. I was diagnosed by my peers as having straight-a-adhd. It was one of the good ones.

A friend got "Most literate" since she was such a pretentious literature buff. Haha.
