Of or referring to tribal goths of iron age eastern europe and western asia. I.e. Visigoths, Ostrogoths, Gutans, Gota, Gotas, etc. etc.
A form of architecture, not agriculture, typified by flying butresses to support high vaulted ceilings. A light open Nave surrounded by large stained glass windows to allow light in. The main impression intended to be "God is bigger than you."
A trendy subculture of emotional teens. Typified by wearing black and red, listening to Industrial rock(Which is fine), complaining about everyone else conforming... ahem, and appropriating the wrong fucking term for themselves!!!
That roving band of barbarians must've been gothic.
Notre Dame(Our lady) is a gothic cathedral.
Denny's after midnight is overrun by roving bands of Goths.

Gothic kids are dressed in all black with over-dramatic eyeliner and freaky accessories like coffin purses or zombie shirts.

A loser who doesn't have any friends, so becomes a gothic so he/she suddenly is part of a group.

They dress all black, wear black makeup and black nails. Sometimes they even pretend to be vampires by putting fangs in their mouth.

Usually these are just teens who just hit puberty and do strange shit just to get attention. (see attention whore). When people who are older than lets say 18 are still gothic, then they are probably also Che Guevara worshippers without a real future.

Really, these people are useless. They should all get shot so they have a real reason to be depressed about. No one thinks your morbid, interesting, a vampire or scary. No one cares at all about your bullshit. Please die.
Hey look. There walks another shitface gothic.
-Wanna kick his ass?
Yea, good idea.

Miserable fucks that give up in life because some bad shit happend to them so they where all black to show their pain and the death (similar to a funeral). They also listen to screaming, banging, miserable dark music to show their horrible tragic misery. They also get body piercings in strange/painful places to show how they are so miserable that the pain in the pierced areas cant compare to their misery.
If something tragic happens in ur life, do give up, stay gangsta and errything will be fine! ight nigga!

Gothic is the language of the Goth (Germanic) tribes of early Europe. The were first almost annihilated but the Huns, then became slaves of the Romans. They then derstroyed the Roman armies and attacked Rome, but did not take control over it. They then moved into parts of Spain, France, adn Germany, where they were known as Visigoths. They were the keepers or Rome's enteral flame. Without them, Roman art would have been long lost.

Gothic is not the lifestyle of those who were picked last for games in school and sit around home all day writing lame poetry. You know what you call those people? People who faced adversity, but instead of standing up to it, fell down adn let it go to their heads. So if you are a "goth" and am reading this: take off that god awful make-up, stop shopping at Hot Topic, and live a normal life.
God I hate "goth" kids soooo much.
