I prefer to eat quesadillas, doener, pizza, or fast food for breakfast... I'm not sure what stereotype that fits exactly, but I'm sure there's one for it...

Other than that I rage at videogames quite easily? I'm not very good at recognizing stereotypes in myself. I'm sure people who know me well could give you a better answer.

Wow, reading the beginning of your post, I was all like "Huh, gas, he's talking about driving fast on the autobahn, or something."

Nnnope, that's not where you were going.

But yeah, back when I lived in England, we took the odd school trip to Germany. We would jaywalk, because that's what you do in England if there are no cars about to hit you, and German drivers would beep at us from a good 50 metres away. The teachers even told us not to jaywalk because people would get angsty.

So that was an experience.

Bearded, sturdily built pagan Metalhead (with short hair) a strong urge for beer (and mead) and grilled meat, and heretic tendencies. Or if I feel like it I can change to a HipHop/ Reggae enthusiast with the change of a shirt and slippng into sandals and would get pulled on spec for possession. If I wore a funny cap and nightgown I would be "randomly" body checked at ever airport.
I could fill a lot of stereotypes and I do so (somtimes for provocation), I often switch between "extremes" and adress them, just to fuck with peoples minds.
Oh yeah: I´m a straight white man that loves to cook.

British. Bad teeth. Crippling tea addiction. Extreme aversion to any form of social contact with strangers, including eye contact. I say "sorry" a lot. Do you have a flag?

I'm Canadian and I tend to say "eh" at the end of my sentence if I'm asking a question. I also tend to apologize quite a bit just to be polite rather than out of any sort of sincere regret (like apologizing for bumping into someone) and I've done the "Canadian Shuffle" more times than I can recall. Also, Tim Hortons. I love Tim Hortons.

"No flag, no country!"

On topic and somewhat related...I'm Indian. So I'm good in math and relatively easygoing.

But I also grew up in America and thus believe everything can be solved by metaphorically shooting first and asking questions later.

As one might guess...I'm very conflicted.

I'm British and very repressed indeed. Despite being 19 years old any time anyone brings up... adult topics I immediately become flustered and refer to such things as 'unsavoury'. Which while being a stereotype of the British (I think) is actually a bit odd for someone from Yorkshire, and especially Barnsley, where "Get yer growler art!" ("Show me your vagina", for those of you who don't understand the dialect/phonetic spelling of the accent) is a phrase I have heard uttered more than once to the women in my town, and apart from a deep hatred of the Tories I don't fit in with my local stereotype at all.

I also strive to not sit next to people on the train or bus.

As a former Russian - I prefer Vodka over any other kind of alcoholm on most occasions.

As a current Swede - I am highly aware of my personal space and get uncomfortable (at least initially) when people sit too close or speak to me.

Hm hm...

I am a System-Administrator. A "Computer-guy"

This means that i am overweight, have a beard and wear glasses.
Also this in turn means that i am also a roleplaying geek and single.

Curse my predictability

Know how they say that nerds/furries, ect. having Asperger's is a stereotype? ...Yeah, I don't exactly help that view. Also the whole "living at home thing", but I'm working on that!

I'm gonna need you to do that for me too <.<

OT: I dunno, it's too early for me to do a soul-searching moment to find the truth of what societal stereotypes I do/do not perpetuate .-.

Plenty.

I'm a Caucasian hardcore gamer in his 30's whose obese and lives in a basement (not my parents but a landlady's so close enough?). I'm also very anti-social, have facial imperfections, wear glasses and am into things like D&D. I don't drink, I've never smoked, never done drugs and have always played it safe and been the 'good boy'. Also a virgin.

Pretty much the perfect go to candidate for many a negative stereotype.

Despite all that, I genuinely love my life and have no regrets for my life choices. So I'll just go out there and say that not all negative stereotypes are actually bad. Someone else may think less of me but I'm simply living the life to the fullest (from my perspective).

Pretty much just the nerd ones: no going outside, staying in a dark room playing a game on a lit screen for hours, social interaction not preferable (with the exception of family and a couple close friends), wear glasses... though I also break that stereotype (I suppose) as I'm an attractive girl.

Of the American variety, I'm from Texas and I love the hell out of barbecue. And American food in general. I love french fries, burgers, steak... more meat... all the meat, now that I think about it. Man, now I want some ribs.

As for girl stereotypes, I can't STAND insects or any related bugs (spiders are the exception) and I do actually like spending money on myself if I'm at the mall(though not on clothes, so is that negated?)

I don't think I really perpetuate any stereotypes. Maybe just a few things here and there, I guess.

As a white guy, I can't dance. I don't really know any other stereotypes for white guys.

As a gamer, I avoid getting in arguments with other players, I don't hate women, and I play just to have fun, whether I win or lose. Also not single, but I do still live with my parents... So I just barely fit in.

As a Californian, I tend to say "yo", "dude", "chill", and other stoner lingo quite often, but I actually don't do any drugs. Also I am not a movie star and I don't surf. I don't think the words I use count as a stereotype, so that's cool.

As a gay guy, I am not fabulous or flamboyant, I care nothing about fashion, and I don't do that "gay accent" thing. Most people I know irl didn't even know that I'm gay until I told them that I have a boyfriend. So yay, no stereotypes there.

Yeah, I guess I fit in with some of those a little bit, but I'd say I am not a walking stereotype of anything.

Angry is an irish stereotype?

As a person who lives in the southern U.S., I love the hell out of sweet tea. Not so much other food or drink staples. But sweet tea is an absolute must wherever I go. I don't have any sort of accent though, thankfully.

I probably perpetuate 'nerdy' stereotypes as well. I'm skinny and have worn glasses for a decade or so.
Heck yeah. It's a weird kind of culture shock when ask for sweet tea outside the U.S. and people jus look at you funny. How did tea get so popular in England if they can't even add a little sweetener?

Anyway, I probably break more stereotypes then I conform too. In fact, a lot southerners my age do. Most rednecks I know support gay marriage, have close friendships with African Americans, and are highly educated. They still do dumb redneck things though.

Snobby artist. I am a huge art snob, it's mostly all in good fun though. Also kinda Pennsylvania Dutch, especially when it comes to food. Shoo fly pie, pork and sauerkraut, Lebanon bologna, plus I have like 5 hex signs in my apartment.

I'm from the great lakes area. I wear t-shirts and jeans until water begins to freeze. Though to be fair I'm not outside a whole lot (mostly just going from class to class to work to dinner to the dorms on campus) and am not so stupid as to forswear at least a windbreaker or a sweater of some sort if I'm going to be out for any significant period of time.
I am a gamer. I do not follow traditional sports (though hockey and soccer [which i wish we americans called football, since it just makes more sense] are fun to watch during the major tournaments).
I'm Irish and Polish (mom's side). I smell/sweat a significant amount.
My father is black. I have naturally strong legs, tightly curled hair, and I rarely get sunburnt. Come to think of it I don't remember ever being sunburnt in the last 8 years or so.
