How to Become a Thug?

I am not sure why anyone would want to become a thug, especially since thugs are associated with criminal activity, they are ruthless and just do not care about anyone or anything, except themselves. Frankly, they really do not care about themselves, because if they did, they would take advantage of all the world has to offer, finish school, go to college or trade school and become a fine upstanding citizen. Then that knowledge could be used to deter someone else who has the preconceived notion being a thud is cool.
