A LAN-Party is when several persons (up to 1000+) persons (mostly young nerdy guys) meet up in a big, often dark hall, stuffed with network wiring. They all take their computers with them and spend several days and nights playing multiplayer computer games, download movies, porn and music, eat pizza and fastfood and sleep either on their keyboards or in sleeping bags between/under the desks (some have better accommodations though). Since nobody gives a damn about fashion and everybody wants to be as comfortable as possible in a smelly hall heated by several hundreds of bodies, shorts, T-shirt and sandals is the overwhelming fashion of choice. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lan_party
