Philistine = No Culture
A conformist in everything they do. A person who is obsessed with sports, sex (among the High School and College set in particular, but some may not be at all) and Motor vehicles. They listen to whatever everyone else is listening to (especially if it is Country Music, Classic Rock, Nickleback, Limp Bizkit or rap/Hip Hop in the case of many younger philistines), wear whatever everyone else is wearing, and avoid anything that is in the least bit unusual, unique, or eccentric. They tend to have little to no use for art, be of limited intelligence, be obsessed with such things as NASCAR, golf, Hunting and Fishing, and tend to drive gas guzzling vehicles like SUVs and Extended cab Pickup Trucks. They are the fuel behind reality television. They love ATVs and all the damage they cause to the land. They could care less about the environment, only recycle if they feel a significant profit is to be made, and think that by keeping everything cut (grass, brush etc, ignorant of the fact that the plants that they are leaving are invasive) and throwing everything in the trash that they are helping the environment.
They are ignorant of geography and will generalize an entire region under the identity of a single city eg Paramount's King's Island being in "Cincinnati", Disney World being in "Orlando", Coral Castle being in "Miami" and Tybee Island being in "Savannah".
No capability of thinking outside the box or any other sort of critical thinking for that matter.

1. A group of sub-pagans in Biblical times who were killed in a suicide attack by Samson.

2. A type of person who spends all of his/her life's CPU cycles on how to make everybody else's lives absolutely miserable--especially one who throws their legal weight around while doing so. Examples include schoolteachers, terrorists (of any race/religion), lawyers/ambulance chasers, Sammy on the soap opera "Days of Our Lives", hate groups, people who lobby for freedom from religion instead of freedom of religion (hellloooo! there's a difference there!), war-hungry peoples,the RIAA/MPAA/ISDA, spyware/malware/virus writers, those who support activation DRM in computer programs...etc.
Only a philistine would force people to pay for a non-energy-bearing electrical waveform.

an uncircumcised pegan also know as a turtleneck, hoodie, or anteater due to the fact that the philistines were uncircumcised and the jews were.
