Why, cause it's camouflage.

I personally dress casual{t-shirt 'n' (jeans|slacks|other)} and looking at me all people could say is there goes a hippy(;}~ IMHO).

The TV image of a geek is just that, the TV image, which perhaps at one point in time was true for a fractional percentage of geeks, but never really was.

I can only recall being called a geek once. It was in high school in my French I class. Some girl, a senior, was asked a question in French, and when she did not reply, Mademoiselle Kim asked me. Annoyed and stumped by the no-reply, i replied quickly and with relatively correct pronounciation(I was feeling oh so childishly superior those days. I did grow up, at least a lil bit). Two seconds later, the girl turned and said "Geek." I looked at her and thought, a geek, but I don't have glasses.

To answer your question, I do not dress like a 'geek' nor do I hold it all inside of me(you should know that). I don't wear glasses and am far from being P.C. or lanky. I don't even feel I am a geek.

UPDATE: I don't agree with the definition above, and somewhat agree with the definiton below.

"cRaZy is co01, but sometimes cRaZy is cRaZy".
