|1.||academic social immobility|
The inability of an individual's social status to change in a school hierarchy. Can also apply to colleges and universities. Usually a consequence of a school environment where cliques are a strong and omnipresent force. Generally results in cliques sticking together for longer than usual, stark contrasts of quality in the social lives of individual students, and close relationships (plus other social luxuries) being limited to the school alpha males and alpha females while those less fortunate are crushed through drudgery such as homework. Antonym of "academic social mobility".
One of the foundations of an elitist "student body" is academic social immobility. Wherever you happen to be in the school hierarchy, whether you be popular and successful or excluded and oppressed, you will stay there for the rest of your school days.
Where you fall on the social class ladder. Determined by occupation, wealth, net worth, dress and manners.
Can be divided into different segments such as homeless all the way up to upscale/rich.
What's your social status?
|3.||Rosie and Jim|
A old British TV show about a couple of ragdolls who come to life behind their owners back and go on various adventures (think 'Toy Story'). The ragdolls live on some random boat that is very narrow, and once the owner (can't remember his name) leaves the room Rosie and Jim magically come alive, however the ragdolls always seem to cut it very short returning to their lifeless state once the owner comes back into the room.
It has been argued that the owner actually knows the dolls are capable of coming to life, but he remains to be oblivoius to this fact and willingly keeps a strong silence, as it could cripple his social status.
(Rosie and Jim talking amongst themselves)
ROSIE: i could swear he knows we can come to life Jim?
JIM: Yeah but think Rosie if he told anyone it could cripple his social status!
someone who can ruin your status with others just by hanging out with you
Did you hear about poor Steve?
My point exactly. He is the football quaterback. Poor Steve met a social leper and now no one hangs with him anymore
A social snob is a person that is dictated highly by what society thinks. They will follow any thing that their friends think are 'cool'.more...
Especially in the asian type of social snobs, their mobile phones shows how 'hardkore' they are and they also like to wear dog tags because that also shows their social status.
A social snob will never sort out any disputes by themselves, instead they will bring other friends they consider 'hardkore' online in a instant messaging service to use threats such as "why dont u go suck a dick and shut the fuck up??!!!" or use rebuttals that make no sense such as, "did i sey u did?". Clearly spelling incorrectly is higly common in social snobs, like spelling fuck as fcuk Why is this ? We may never know.
Hair and appearance is a very important to a social snob too. They may dye and cut their hair until it no longer looks natural just to fit in. Appearance is also important online, this is where they like to be because they feel that they have more power. They only take pictures for things such as Xanga or MSN Spaces. They take lots of care in taking a picture; not to take a full picture of their face but to have in in angles, poses, funny faces and of course finger gestures to make them look 'harkore'. The pictures are then also edited with Adobe PhotShop where they add final touches and add a tagline such as "sistarhsz for ever", "simpooly me" and "i l0vez j00".
Now we can talk about names they give them self online in a messaging...
1. One who attaches oneself to another person or group of people solely for the the purpose of raising one's own social status. Unfortunately diagnosis of having a social parasite can be made only after discovering that you have already been used, abused, and drained of all your resources. Once a social parasite has been discovered it quickly moves on and attaches itself to another victim. The cycle continues indefinitely as the parasite never achieves the social status it so badly desires.more...
2. An organism that attaches itself to an individual or group for the soul purpose of gain. Many social parasites rely on those they attach themselves to. They may also expect "the infected" to do such things as: pay for items being consumed(booze, cigs), chauffeur them around. They might also expect to be housed over night. This may then also go on for up to years.
3. A highly invasive organism that exhibits the minimum number of signs of intelligent life. The de-facto route of infection presents through unprotected social intercourse and concurrent alcohol or substance abuse. The social parasite also exibits a high perpensity to symbiotiaclly attach itself to an unaware host. This method of attachment usually presents itself when the host is exhibiting marked signs of malnurition, irratability, suicidal idealization, and unable to function within normal society. This causes the host to withdrawl from normal social circles and induce psycological self distrruction. This ...

|7.||grosse pointe towney|
Middling-class Grosse Pointers whose social status has declined CONSIDERABLY the past two decades or so on account of regional economic decline, a burgeoning newly affluent group of parvenus, and their own personal financial misfortunes. While never as wealthy nor distinguished as some of their blue-blood, mansion-owning neighbors, this group once enjoyed a reasonable level of material comfort and local prominence back in the pre-cable TV, pre-PC, pre-internet, pre-cell phone age (nee' Cold War era) and tended to predominate in those avenues of community life usually considered "common": little league baseball, brownies and cub scouts, city and municipal gov't, ice cream socials, PTA, et al. Alas, since the Reagan presidency, this sub-culture, like the plight of most middle class Americans everywhere, has slowly dissolved away to the newer and more affluent types with their store-bought designer clothes, McMansions, strange acce...more...
