B. A person who comes from England. There are 4 main types of English person:

2. The Farmer
Typical of most rural places in England. Normally an overweight middle-aged man wearing dirty overalls and a straw hat. Most common phrases are "Ooo-ar!" and any swearword concievable. Not as gentle as they look.
3. The Chav
A growing breed of English person. Loud, aggressive, obsessed with their looks and becoming a 'gangsta'. Normal IQ is about 31. Reproduces at an alarming rate.
4. The Non-English English Person
That asian bloke who runs the Off-Licence.

Someone with ginger/'orange' hair.
Gingers and Redheads are not quite the same - red hair can range from strawberry blonde
and is caused by and excess the pigment phaeomelanin. Ginger hair is often (but not always) a genetic mutation, hence the pale skin, freckles and sensitivity to light.
Thanks to South Park
ginger people are often the butt of jokes, much like blondes
. Like redheads
they are thought to have fiery tempers. Unlike redheads they are also considered 'freaks'.
Ginger kids are not 'freaks'. But I'm a brunette, so I don't care that much.
A person who does not fit in with most of mainstream society because of their apperence (usually glasses, zits
, allergies etc.), interests and behaviour, but have a high amount of kowledge in things not always considered 'cool' i.e. anime

Not to be confused with the geek
A geek discovered a use for electricity. A geek invented the computer. A geek invented the internet.
A nerd invented World of Warcraft.

A geek is someone of high intelligence, which usually makes them outcasts of mainstream society. Although they share many traits with the nerd
(lack of social skills, usually wears glasses, normally seen on the computer etc.) the main difference is IQ. Nerds are normally of average or above average intelligence, while geeks are often significantly smarter. Geeks also have more mainstream interests i.e physics
Geeks are sometimes described as nerds with less social skills, although in some places this is the opposite way round.
Bill Gates is a geek. Geeks rule the world. Don't tread on them.
