I have previously checked out the words Townie and Nar Dan. Entries suggesting the meanings of these two are mainly from the Grebs point of view (I used to be a bit grebby buy I dont know what I would be classed as now, I listen to stuff like muse, nickel back and keane, someone please tell me if you know) Anyhoo, Any entries on Nar dan or Townie that isn't by a greb has bad grammar and suggests that it was infact a townie/nardan entered it themselves. Although no one really cares what they think I shall say well done because they actually managed to type something (i think i operating a computer takes a small amount of intelligence...its astounding they have evolved to begin to use technology) anyway, Also if you are reading through the definition of greb, any entry that is against them also has bad grammar meaning...YES! you guessed it...it was submitted by either a townie or a greb. BACK TO THE DEFINITION!

Grebs can be one of 2 kinds
>genuine
OR
>manufactured

GENUINE
People that were actually into the greb "fashion" before it was turned into a catergory/group They like Rock/punk/emo/indie music...some listen to heavier stuff more than others but they are still quite open minded and don't talk badly about stuff they aren't that into.

MANUFACTURED
Piss me off, they think it's fashionable and are only in it because they want to be accepted. They usually buy their clothes from new look and tammy girl (stupid cheap clothing shops that only sell fake shitty grebby clothing cause they think it's fashionable...as opposed to ice 9/void which is where real grebs shop, the manufactured grebs are too scared to go in them shops) they go around wearing nirvana hoodies wehn they probably only know one or two songs and own non of their albums. They usually ages between 7 and 12 and are so fake and full of shit. They claim to like many bands but know nothing of them because they aren't in the charts. These sort of grebs secretly worship bands like busted and the rasmus because they have been in the charts with their so called "rock" songs.

I approve of the genuine grebs but dissaprove of manufactured...hope you enjoyed reading my definition
P.S manufactured grebs, townie and nar dans (especially) SUCK DONKEY NUTS!
MANUFACTURED
Hang around town squares smoking and drinking...they have the equivalent of 1 unit between about 5 of them and then stumble round acting pissed and say "oh i'm so drunk".

GENUINE
Aren't sad enough to do stuff like that, they'd probably rather chill at home and smoke a weed and listen to their favourite bands.

well a greb in my opinion is just like all the rest of yours, individualism, heavy, complex taste in music and a motive and need to express yourself for who you are. a person outcasted from everyone else but the people who have been in your position. a group of people who arnt accepted to be left alown cause of their image, personality and well being unliked by Chavs(so to speak).
i have been considered a greb for, phwa, as long as ive been me me. im not liked by the townies, chavs except by a couple chav wannabies. so i went to the other people who are also as a greb. 1 greb + other grebs = exactly like all the pees in a pod.

chav: hey maun, u startin on me maun? uah?
greb: no, acually im not
chav: ur startin on me? comon than!
greb:ur not impressing anyone u no?

global regular expression bitch

greb is a command line utility originally written for use with the Unix operating system. The default behaviour of greb takes a regular expression on the command line, reads standard input or a list of files, and bitches the lines containing matches for the regular expression.

The name comes from a command in the Unix text editor ed that takes the form:

g/re/b

which means "search globally for lines matching the regular expression re, and bitch them".

verb: To greb or grebbing/grebbing). To complain about something to everybody else you know.

A greb is someone who complains a lot, also known as a grebber. someone who is an incredible greb can also be given a ranking along with their title of greb, such as captain Greb.

the word 'grebbing' becomes 'grebbin' when it is said with annoyance or anger.
Captain Greb: where's all the booze gone!!??
Person: oh quit your grebbin!

another social label designed to categorise anyone vaguely alternative-looking, i.e, not townie or chav. often confused with goths, skaters, punks, emokids, etc...

fake ones = badly printed nirvana hoodies, too many coloured rubber bangle bracelet things, oversize corduroy baggies in hideous colours, tiny crying-out-for-help-my-life-is-so-crap scratches on wrist made with a compass and pathetic squeak in retaliation to chavs. secretly likes Busted. or, god forbid, McFly.

real ones = you know who you are. yay you. ^.^
fake = -squeaks- mommy stopped my pocket money, now I can't buy that new fake Rasmus hoodie! I'm going to go and scratch myself and write poems about how depressed I am

real = life's good, dude. chill out.

a bunch of people who think of themselves as unique individuals and are oblivious to the fact they all look about the same. they also think they are into alternative music but have very little knowledge about REAL alternative music.
look at those grebs squatters, they know fuckall about real music!

A group of people who think they're original and yet look the same as every other greb for the past 20 years. They're insistent they dont like "labelling" and yet theyre the most bitchy against anyone who doesnt act/look the way that they do.

They wear t-shirts/hoodies adverstising their favourite bands, and seem to think theyre making some kind of statement by wearing the clothes they wear, when actually noone cares.

They tend to congragate in large groups in shopping centres. You'll recognise them because they have stripy socks on their arms.

They think they're cool now, but dont worry, you rarely see grebs over the age of 20, so most of them will grow out of it, and realise originality comes from within.

However, if you get "into their group", they do tend to be kind, sensitive and intelligent.
Greb 1: "so and so bought a top from topshop"
Greb 2: "OMFG She's such a townie"
Greb 1: "yeah, lets go write about it on our blogs then take some pictures of ourselves looking depressed".
