Meaning of Twink code

Twink code means: Aa code to identify the different types of Twinkie. (ed: This list copied from 'http://www.cs.cmu.edu/afs/cs.cmu.edu/user/scotts/bulgarians/twink-code.txt' July 2005 - Note: date of creation unknown, Note: formatting not 100% perfect) TwinkCode v1.10alpha This is *not* the new and approved twink code (at least, not yet, but I'm hoping). It applies some major changes/additions to v1.00. These changes will be identified by a new material triangle ____ \\// New material \/ *** new material here /\ //\\ end new material changed material will also be marked, with smaller triangles __ \/ changed I hope this makes review and comment easier. TwinkCode v1.10 ____ \\// New material \/ Some people out here aren't satisfied with BearCode or SmurfCode. It doesn't speak to us. We're twinks, and damn proud of it. While bears live for hair and smurfs for humor, a twink lives for style. As such, style factors are the major way of recognizing a twink. Unlike bears and smurfs, a twink's style can't be rated by degree--to be a twink, one must have a good sense of style. The ideal twink knows what he can't wear, and how to wear what he can. The clothes make the twink. Clothing is not exclusively the determining factor in a twink, though. The twink's crowning glory is his hair. Long or short, straight or wavy, it must be perfect. Hell is a lifetime of bad hair. The main Twink identifier is a 4 part code comprised of: T - Type of twink C - Color of Hair L - Length of Hair(and whether it's (s)traight, (w)avy, or (c)urly) T - Type of twink 1 - BeachTwink: The beach twink is often a sun- bleached blonde, well tanned, and well defined. Sub-genres of beach twink are the VBall Twink and SurferTwink. 2 - NuevoWest Twink: The old west was never quite like this. Colorful, sharp, and not nearly weathered enough, if cowboys were fashion slaves,they'd look like this. 3 - Street Twink: Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch have nothing on this twink. Urban fashion, be it rap or grunge, is raised to an art form by this delicious one. 4 - The All-American Twink: Remember that quarterback you could never have in high school? This *is* him. Athletic, active, it's amazing how his hair stays in place. 5 - EuroTwink: Think of Armani suits. Think of Italian convertibles. The finest European designers would love to have him on the runway. 6 - The Twink Next Door: The boy next door never looked this good (well, mine never did). A suburban sensibility becomes a showcase for a gorgeous young guy. 7 - RadicalTwink: This twink marches to the beat of a different drummer. Possessing a style, while not necessarily unique, but definitely uncommon, this twink will go out on a limb to grab your attention. 8 - GymTwink: The GymTwink may attempt any of the above styles (and pull them off successfully) but it's always that drop-dead-gorgeous bod that's overshadowing everything else. Even in sack cloth (we're talking *really* radical 7 here) he'd look incredible. GymTwinks should include what style they're attempting in their code (i.e. T8(5)) /\ //\\ end new material *** comments: Perhaps 3 should be broken into grunge and rap Twinks come in all hair colors, natural and unnatural. C - Color of Hair 0 - black (raven) 1 - dark brown 2 - brown 3 - light brown 4 - auburn 5 - dark red 6 - bright red 7 - strawberry blonde 8 - Blonde. Most of the hair on his body is blonde. 9 - Totally Blonde. Every strand of hair on his body(by definition must be natural). X - Other (purple, blue, etc...) If hair color is assisted, it should list the original color in parentheses i.e. CX(7)). ____ \\// New material \/ Hair length is important too. Some of us like long hair, some of us like short hair, some of us like any hair at all as long as it looks good. L - Length of Hair 0 - Shaved/bald 1 - verrrrry short, buzzed 2 - short enough for a banker, suitable for business 3 - medium length, barely over collar 4 - shoulder length 5 - part-way down the back 6 - *really* long, like down to his butt The last modifier is waviness of hair, and is designated by letter.

ADDITIONAL PUNCTUATION The following aren't graded, they are just flags attached to the overall classification: v for variable, said trait is not very rigid, may change with time or with individual interaction ? for traits where there is no HARD information available and the value is completely guessed : for traits which are observed but uncertain, e.g. a twink who is wearing a lot of clothes, so you can't be SURE he's an h+, but his forearms REALLY suggest that he is, hence h+ ! for cases where the trait is as close to a prototype as possible, or an exemplary case of a specific trait... e.g. the ultimate h++! () for indicating "cross-overs" or ranges. A twink who goes from k to k++ depending on the situation (i.e. mostly "k") could use k(++) You can make the punctuation as detailed as desired, although the best ones to read are the ones which are the most clear and simple to understand. v1.00 draft by...
