    Just a little curious to see if anybody fits the two stereotypical computer geek profiles:

    1) Super skinny computer geek

    2) Super fat computer geek

    (That pretty much covers everything :D)

    Personally, I'd be closer to number 1, but not exactly super skinny.

    >1) Super skinny computer geek

    So, in other words, someone, who spends day in and day out memorizing the periodic table?

    >2) Super fat computer geek

    In other words, someone, who spends their days chatting with women from their computer?

    I'm not much of either, somewhere in the middle. Although I don't chat all day with women from the computer, so I'm probably closer towards the skinny side. :p

    Well, yes... that would be me (Hey, I'm studying biochemistry! I sorta need to know the periodic table!). :rolleyes:

    Technically, I'm not exactly super skinny. I've been doing weight training for the last 5 years and I have a medium build + ~10.2% body fat.:cool:

    hmm...most people think I'm some skinny little thing...

    I mean...I'm not big by any means...5'5"...125lbs...

    but I'm pretty lean...exercise often and maintain a decent diet... ;)

    You sound pretty much like me. I'm only 5'6" and I weigh a mere 135lbs. Unfortunately, that 10.2% body fat isn't enough to get me a super cut six-pack :(.

    I used to be pretty chubby when I was younger tho

    My weight has never really varied because of the computer. I'm only about 10 pounds over what I weighed in high school--I was about 112 when I graduated. In early 1999, I was 155, due being upset and eating too much. That's unlike when I was in Philly and just liked the food too much and got to 150. For 5'7" (1.7m), that's just too much for me. Then again, some time last year, I was down to 116.

    Btw, I knew most of the periodic table in 4th grade, so sue me! :D

    Well that is more than I was expecting.

    Lets say I don't believe in America is fat non-sense.

    Not really lean, but I am average weight (non-american average).

    Oh well.

    Yup. I'm overweight. I eat at Burger King 4 times a day, what can I say?

    I guess I would fall into "loser white trash" computer geek category. I'm a super geek. I like cars a lot. I drive a Pontiac Grand Prix, which has to be the most white trash car next to a 69 Charger painted orange with two black racing stripes. I laugh at computer jokes. I make fun of filesystems. I like 80's metal.

    So, just picture a 20 year old kid with long hair, covered with grease, working under the hood of a black Grand Prix, with a computer magazine sitting on the filter housing, reading, while changing the thermostat on said car, laughing at Windows users, wearing a T-shirt two sizes too small, and has a belly showing.

    I'm dead sexy!!
