    What do you think is uncool?

    I don't mean this in terms of bad manners or being rude, such as failing to give a tip or cutting into line. Rather, I'm thinking of this in terms of social awkwardness, like picking your nose in public, an action where the person is just clueless to how people interpret the action. What's an example of something that someone who is uncool, a dweeb, or socially unexposed would do? Can you provide 2-3 instances or examples?

    What's most uncool, is an imitation of it. Someone trying to be what he isn't.

    When people frequently say:

    like
    dude
    no, but seriously though
    fuck
    fuckin'
    uhhh umm
    absolutely!

    Bad posture, trendy slang, exaggerated facial expressions, thinking you're cool because you never smile, thinking the volume of your voice is a great way to display your confidence, talking too quickly.

    In high school there was a kid who use to gasp and swallow air when he ate. It took him a few weeks to figure out why people were calling him Darth.

    Body odor and bad breath are the worst in my book. These are things that the offending person is rarely aware of and often require tactful hints on the part of others. [​IMG]

    Lisa: That song is so lame.
    Homer: So lame that it's... cool?
    Bart and Lisa: (dismissive) No.
    Marge: Am I cool, kids?
    Bart and Lisa: (dismissive) No.
    Marge: Good. I'm glad. And that's what makes me cool, not caring, right?
    Bart and Lisa: (dismissive) No.
    Marge: (frustrated) Well, how the hell do you be cool? I feel like we've tried everything here.
    Homer: Wait, Marge. Maybe if you're truly cool, you don't need to be told you're cool.
    Bart: (puzzled, uncertain) Well, sure you do.
    Lisa: (bewildered) How else would you know?

    ^like pretty fuckin' cool dude uhh ummmm, no but seriously though absolutely.

    the worst thing i personally know of anyone doing is the insistence of my mother to eat with her mouth open, this is coupled with her refusal to wash her hands before or during the preparation of food. i learnt to cook for myself from an early age and it was years before i was able to dine with other people present.
