    I'd like to say I fall into the category of ruthless dictator. That's why I didn't get to be a prefect. Idk all the geeks at our school aren't exactly knowledgeable in computer parts apart from possibly one exception. There also all AMD/ATI fans which makes them constantly spout amd has better value than your intel ... I get on well with everyone, I play football every friday with all the guys in teams then hang about with them. The moshers liked me when I was at school and the neds only knew me from fighting so they left me alone.

    Technically all this "stereotyping" is pretty much ... well should be past this day and age. There is just such a vast variety of diffrent types of people now, it is almost impossible to label everybody as what type of person they are just by how they dress and what they listen to, and not forgettign whats the point of it anyways, i mean really whats the point, not just some excuse because we feel the need to, it's in our human nature... saying that, that's probably the only real answer i can think of.

    Well technically they can be grouped together because they have similar behaviour and appearance. Not saying they should be discriminated against but that is how most people are identified by their appearace and behaviour.

    in todays society you have to cling to a group to make friends

    i dont know i dont fit in well in social situations

    people dont generally dress a certain way and then listen to a completely different type of music, oh i dress in camo trousers and a leather jacket but i listen to jazz music music NOOOO
    i run around in trackies and skip hats and i listen to melodic death metal no it just dosnt happen

    coincidently i cant stand the indie craze either

    if you meet me in real life you wouldn't able to label me
    im not stereotyping its just people like social groups its a fact and luckily im not part of any social group, they lke to cling to social groups to make friends

    i cant stand social groups i have a mate who is originally from the congo (LIVED HERE SINCE HE WAS 6) he is into hip hop i dont judge him because of that and he dosnt cling to the hip hop stereotype either

    A guy drove past me & shouted "GOTH" at me as he went by - as if thats meant to offended me?? I dont dress like a goth. Im more like smart/casual but I do have some mosher traits as

    #1 I like the colour black (& red)

    #2 I have long hair past half way down my back

    #3 I have a sexy long leather jacket

    #4 my love of heavy metal :rockout::rockout::rockout::rockout: (& also other types of music)

    But i do prefer to go out in a black shirt, black jeans & black shoes & no i dont wear the make up. Im just 'normal' with a dark twist.

    Correct me if i'm wrong but i always thought a Geek was classed as a "serious gamer"

    And

    Nerd was classed as someone "who over do it with thier computers" lol

    Chavs suck.. I can't help but want to hit them. Their nothing but little gobshits in a group and by themselves their cowardly scum comparable to a cockroach you just have to crush.

    all chavs do is move to a nice area - then breed mini chavs like rabbits that turn into bigger chavs without fathers who then turn into attention seeking little bastards who then go on to terrorise the community.

    See all the councel housing estates there are in the UK? might aswell build an island offsure then deport all the chavs there, lock them up & let them do as they wish....like a huge Ghetto

    Chavs are about as much use as a wheelbarrow missing its wheel. A prime example of what chavs really are like is to watch shameless, I really fucking hate that show.
