    I know women.
    I know 40 different ways to do it or whatever.
    I do it 40 different ways to..It's a crazy blur..anyhow.

    I'm a tech geek also who can program, but chooses not to.
    I like hardware..in fact, I love it.

    I have a calculator but usually resort to finding or borrowing one.
    I used to have sholder blade-length hair, but cut it so I could spike it.

    I dress like a preppy sometimes(light-tan pants), or a gothic freak sometimes (all black, choker, fishnet, etc.), and then an alternative punk type person sometimes (baggy pants dragon and skull shirts, spiked hair). I'm not a stereotypical dork. When I half ass try to look good, I've been told I'm not that shabby. I used to have a low self esteam about it all, but now, after getting my head on straight I don't think I'm that bad when I purty all up.

    My code is usually commented..but hardly released.

    I don't do drugs. I smoke. That's it, don't drink.

    and, that's the catagory I am

    Ugh, I guess so.

    I don't like booze. It's dangerous(driving) if you're not thinking straight. I don't like the taste of most of it, except vodka. I just stay away though.

    The long-term health affects of smoking far outweight the short term affects of drinking.

    lets see....

    long term effect of smoking - not being able to breath...then dying.
    short term affect of drinking - passing out in a pool of your urine and choking to death on your own puke.

    sounds exciting.

    Are you HIGH, vodka is the worst - AFTER TASTING- shiiiiiiiiiiiiiippppp I've ever tasted. Go smoke your swagggg dill weed.

    Hippies suck and nerds are just plain yawn. I dress in Cali surf wear mofos. I hate guys who wear sandals, especially burkenstocks - it makes me angry.

    My category is Cali Surf Tech.

    Peace out.

    Whoa, how can Birkenstocks make you angry? Have you got something against comfortable sandals?

    To reply to the question, most people think of me as a nerd; however, I'm probably more hippie than others at my school who try to act like they are. In my opinion, you can't call yourself a hippie until you've read On The Road. Now there's a good book. It was written by Jack Kerouac, a prominent writer of the Beat movement. That movement along with the impact of On The Road developed into what we now know as the hippie movement. Contrary to popular belief, being a hippie has nothing to do with tie dye shirts. I strongly suggest that everyone who can read On The Road.

    YES.

    Especially ones that make your feet look like BIG FOOT. I always want to smash the ugly toes of the dudes who wear BURKS.

    You should just strap TENNIS RACKETS to your feet, you would get the BIG FOOT look and look more stylish doing so.

    BTW, I can only drink VODKA with MOUNTAIN DEW.
