"artsy", paint their entire bodies, walk around naked

and burn things down. How come every time I see a guy

on a fixie he looks like he's mad at the world,

completely high, or both?"

I give up.I know I wasn't fooling anyone anyway.this is exactly how I am.I wonder if the other quarter or so of the list who rides fixed gear in the guise of track or road bikes (Ever notice that the fixed gear ride at cirque is the most heavily attended ride?) will be men or women enough to admit that they too are just as Ted describes us. I guess he is just too smart to be fooled any longer. He even has figured out that the Burning Man festival looks like fun to me and that I might even (gasp) join a protest. How could I have ever have thought to fool such an intellectual Giant?

Ya got me Ted.you win. Wanna see my latest tattoo?
