Hey PC it's me Curious, I was just thinking today after school; and I noticed that my school goes through certain phases with different crazes whether it be a certain look, game, pice of clothing, attitude, item, action/sport ect.

So do you have a certain craze at your school?
What is it?
Or if you don't go to school, is there a certian craze within your community or suburb?
Or even on a website? Like facebook and the Turban pages and "Kates Party".
Do you like the craze why or why not?

So yeah, personally myself I dont understand the point of the turban groups and the Kate's party thing? I also dislike the games played at school.. at the definately the makeup some girls wear I think they look better than they do in makeup.

You won't be going to Kate's Party if you keep dissing it like that.

jk, jk. I find them fun, but only if I don't need to spend any money. ^^

I thought Kates Party was supposed to have happened a couple of days ago, lol.

The 'craze' at my school would be to try get as many detentions as possible in one day, it's really stupid. xD

Among my group of friends (Metalheads aged between 16 and 25), the craze is long hair haha
Seriously, I have the shortest hair out of all my friend except two. One of those people is FtM Transgender, and the other only has short hair because she had an allergic reaction to hairdye and had to cut her hair short.

I know, I don't who Kate is though? And I think the turban groups are quite funny..
Sounds like some people have some wierd crazes though, wow really how many detentions have you scored?

Kates party was something got entirely out of hand.
From what Ive been told, it was an event listing on facebook that due to a temporary glitch on the social networking site actually invited pretty much everyone that has an account.
Its not really a trend or a fad, it was just something that happened.

I dont necessarily follow trends either.
I just sort of do what I feel like.
Popularity has never been linked with trends for me.

Oh, so that's who Kate is an where she came from. Haha.
Same as me, I never really follow fads and trends since it will eventually get old. I like to do my own thing, because I really believe in individuality.

The turban thing however, was quite funny but I think it was taken way out of proportion and I think it was being a bit racist.

The craze at my school is 'who can go out with William first!?" So far no one wins.

No, I do not have a craze. Cool shoes are generally well respected, though.

I have noticed though that, some of the most common crazes and trends include music. At my school everyone loves music and we hear it playing everyday on people's phones, Ipods and computers.

I only follow fads if it's something I personally like. For example, when Pokemon was opoular, of course I got in on that. ;D

The stupidest fad I can remember was that in Gr. 8, pretty much all of the girls in my class started wearing binkies.

These Black Pilmsole shoes, I got one coz they were only £2 at Primark. Then all my friends had Nike Trainers for school, and I felt left out, and I wanted a JD Bag, coz everyone has them, and a pair of shoeswas on sale, I got that, but JD were giving sale bags not there gymbag ones and the shop was out of stock, so I got the shoes from the Nike store instead and they gave their less popular bags. I still don't have a JD bag but want one :( They look good but JD is expensive, maybe if I but socks.... that's another thing, I got a £10 bag from them and got their gymbag. My sis got a £20 from them and got their carrier bag. You don;t know if you get a gymbag or not D:

I have my own non-brand fashion style outside school which my friends admire/envy (I hope) which is nice :D

I pay so little attention to stuff like that that I'm not even aware of what 'crazes' there are, nor do I care to be. Growing up, no one liked anything I liked let alone it be a craze (including Pokemon, even in its 'glory days'), and none of the crazes were things I was remotely interested in. It was just something that further separated me from my peers :/

I've been out of high school for almost five years now, but the big craze where I went to school (which was in south Texas with an ethic breakdown of African American - 50%/Mexican American - 30%/'other' - 20%) was hip hop music in general. If you weren't a fan, you were probably clumped in with the emo/art nerd/weeaboo/hipster crowd. XD

In my school right now there's a craze with those animal bracelets. I'm kinda pissed at myself because I was one of the ones who started wearing them before it caught on (I didn't even know tbh, I just had two on my wrist that my friends gave me) and then people started taking notice and buying it and wearing some 20+ on their arms... and from there it was just ridiculous. C'mon, they're rubber bands people Dx

Farmville, or Facebook in general. Twitter, too.

I really don't understand why people add everyone to their Facebook accounts and let them peer into their daily lives. Both Facebook and Twitter are a mirror into someone's privacy, the way 99% of the world uses these sites. I have Twitter to update with story details and a Facebook for family since I'm planning to move back far away. They like to make sure I'm doing all right, and Facebook helps in that respect. I have 46 friends, and I know all of them. One of things I don't understand is when people have 400+ friends. C'mon now. You don't have that many friends. 1/2 of them are from other parts of the world, 1/4 are people you've seen randomly and didn't even talk to (just heard about), and the other 1/4 are people you really do know + family.

I just feel that Facebook and similar sites are just popularity contests for the desperate "I have no friendz so I add strangers and creeps to F/B" individuals.

It happens everywhere. Even here. If you're not gay and you don't like Lady Gaga then you're totally not cool. I just ignore it. I don't need to feel "cool" to be happy and content. I like my own stuff.

I wouldn't necessarily say that there is a craze, nor really a trend. What is "in" and "out" really varies between the different cliques. But.. you don't really need anything at my school to be cool. I guess that it is the benefits of being a smaller town, people are more accepting... at least in my experience. I mean, you need one of three things really. 1. Intelligence. 2. Appearance or 3. Attitude. I bet that everyone has at least one of those three, if not 2-3. So... yeah.

A lot of students from my school has a Facebook. My estimate is that one out of four students either made one but never use it, or is addicted to it. There is also a large group of students who have a formspring. They always complain about it, even though some of them check it every hour for more "questions."

Recently, my school is starting to discover sites such as livejournal and tumblr. It wasn't this popular last year. Something in Spring Break made everyone notice their existence.

Oh, and jerk dancing. Ever since last summer, everyone seemed to be wearing skinny jeans and tight shirts on a daily basis. There used to a jerk off every Friday at lunch. The teachers eventually noticed and disband it immediately. That still didn't stop them to meet up somewhere and make a new video.

Those animal bracelets are starting to get popular at my school. I want one so bad.

Lady Gaga is really popular around here, too, now that I think about it >> I don't listen to her/him/it. I have better things to do than listen to songs promoting immoral things.

Are the animal bracelets different colours and have like hope and other words on them? My friend is obsessed with them but she took the orange one for a strange reason..
I do agree with alot of you, because my school has many different nationalities enrolled each have a different trend. Like the Indians and Chinese students like going to the library and playing games, the Samoan (Sorry for the spelling.) like creating new beats and they love creating music and playing rugby ect.

No-one in the UK wears animal bracelets, but I know where you can get them (The only shop I've ever seen in the UK that sells them, plus it's tiny and no-one but 5 year old kids who are buying toy cars notice it). They sell zoo animals, dinosaurs, farm animals and symbols. And I plan on buying some dinosaurs when I have money :)

The Lati@s Craze, Back in 1st grade. It was like a kid would make hacked latios to give to the males, and Latias to the girls. and kids also wore Self-made drawings. Luckily that ended...

Oh.. Right now, I realize that there is too much stuff in my school, Like Beibier, or Jay-z or something, They adapt to that and even six years old like them.

Your telling this thing invited everyone by mistake (apparently) and I STILL didn't get an invitation!? xD Self esteem just hit rock bottom right there haha.

I only remember one trend from school, it was for the boys to have their hair cut a certain way then spiked up at the back.

Lil Wayne and "The Rad Kids." Gang/Rap Crew/Dance Team my school has. Strange peeps yo. Strange peeps. :\

Also those animal or fruit ruber band things. I wear some, like a Pineapple a Wolf and a Taco. (Best three things in the world.) Best fad yet. Better than skinny jeans...oh how I miss skinny jeans.

I suppose we have a few less crazes over here because we have to wear uniform for school.

Once you get past CoD nothing is insanely popular in our school.

I don't know if its a craze as such but alot of people in my class always say terrible internet phrases in real life, for example just going around saying falcon punch as they hit someone, everytime someone mentions numbers all I hear is 'Over 9000!' across the room and I dont even get that one. Rather annoying.

Counter Strike has a really unique way of hitboxs. instead of generating bullets realistically, all bullets hit instantly and the hitbox moves ahead of the player, creating the illusion of having to lead. It doesn't work very well though, so, you wind up with very unique hitboxs that don't always make any sense.

Just giving advice that may help you with playing the game. I did a lot better once I realized how it worked.

^Yeah, I played and learned to hate CS due to this.


The crazes I know of that I'm definitely not part of are...

Call of Duty
Counter Strike
Any music related craze ever
Sports

...Yeah, I'm pretty lame.

Back in Middle School, there was a day or two where it seemed like everybody except myself was wearing "The Dark Side of the Moon" T-shirts. Maybe there was some kind of re-release or something, other than that it was the shortest and most unexpected fad I've ever seen.


The only logical conclusion is that I briefly entered an alternate universe where Pink Floyd rules the eastern coast of the United States as some kind of dystopic hegemony. It's so obvious.
