people who prioritises productive, creative, individual hobbies and interests over image and social life. Note: There are some people you might think of as geeks who give us all a bad name and ARE NOT! geeks rock. chav-geeks as I call them definately don't.
after a few hours doing what they enjoy a non-geek might be liying in a pile of their own vomit while a geek has just invented a program that will make him a millionaire!

Someone who spends a lot of time on the computer, watching sci-fi, reading fanasty but DOES have an actual life. Not to be confused with a NERD who also does these things but does NOT have a life. Nor to be confused with a DORK, whom both the geeks & the nerds beat up.
Someday Mr.Gates wishes to be a geek instead of a dork posing as a nerd.

An inquisitive individual that handles information about a certain topic whether it is for recreational purposes, a promising career, or both.

A geek typically is intelligent in some manner; and is always interested in a particular topic. Geeks have social skills unlike a nerd, which is similar intellectually, yet is a socially awkward individual. Geeks also tend to be, but are not limited to, nonathletic.

Someone who says, "I am missing Halo in HD for this party"
they basically enjoy video games and watch TV, and surf the internet almost all the time.
But they have a good knowledge for technology, like computers and such.
They arent really the most popular people in school, but really, who is? those intimadating Violent Bullies?

Geeks are just... not Bullies, chavs, gilry girls or any of the others, they are just themselves and are more likely to have a succesfull future.
