    He said "to the man", so I'll take it that Jake the Dog is a totally cool guy. He may, however, be a lawless hound.

    I went to a camp once. It was like a day trip to see how it was like. My parents didn't have the cash for it. I don't feel as if I missed out on anything except awkward attempts at sexual encounters. Also, most likely being scared out of my mind about Jason challenging me to a match of Punch-Out!

    Mostly true, but there are exceptions. Chads OTOH are assholes down to the last scrote.

    I loved camp!
    Well, I loved one of the three camps I went to. They were all weeklong affairs.

    One of the camps was ok, but pretty barebones. It was a combined group of kids from the Texas Mennonite churches, and one of the kids who went was a complete asshole. He was possibly the most annoying person I've ever met.

    The other camp I went to that I didn't like was a YMCA camp, and the very first night I accidentally sat on my glasses and broke them so for a week I was squinting trying to make things out.

    How do we account for Death of a Salesman?

    I don't think anybody is really named Biff in real life, anyhow.

    It looks like Biff is mostly a nickname, and not based on the given name, but on the word biff, meaning to hit or punch. And wikipedia tells me most of the notably nicknamed Biffs are sports folk.

    Because people in sports are more likely to be jerks?

    Because people who are likely to earn a nickname about hitting things may more likely be jerks, who then reinforce their nickname by hitting more things, thus ensuring the, uh... jerk-circle?

    Biff Hooper was best friends with the Hardy boys, so he must be alright.

    His real first name is Edward though, so it's a dubious case.

    There is also a 7th century saint called Chad of Mercia.
    On the other hand being a pre-19th century catholic saint isn't really a surefire brand of non-assholism.

    After all, they sainted Cyril of Alexandria, the guy who caused the first split in the christian church because he was such a huge douchebag.

    On the other hand Chad of Mercia seems like a generally likable and humble guy.

    This seems more confirmation bias-y than anything. I mean, if someone was exposed only to gurmbleguts folk, they could draw the same conclusion about gamers. And be right.

    yes, but (famous) sports folk tend to be young, with comparatively vast amounts of money, attention and adoration, so in fact it's probably a wonder that most of them aren't first-class jerks. And called Biff.
