Hippies? - So my wife use(d) cloth diapers on our kids, try to avoid processed foods so we eat a lot of food from scratch, don't allow soda pop in the house (we have it when out on occasion), and I wear hemp sandles. So are we hippies?

Wii question - is there a way to unlock all the racers in Mario Kart without racing all the races? Like a specific name in one of the profiles?

Car Talk - So I named our vehicles. Our 98 Ford Windstar is now known as the Buffalo Verde or BV for short. Our 2000 Honda Civic is now know as Hugin (with small stuffed animal inside)

Thanks for the quick responses. At least now I know what to mark on job applications.

Anybody who names their car something with "Buffalo" in it is a hippie.

And the hemp sandals don't hurt.

How key are the hemp sandals? I don't have those, but I do all that other stuff.

Am I a hippie?

Only if you wear patchouli to mask some other scents (BO, etc) and your wife is called by some astronomical or geological feature.

Hey! Are you saying that my wife Magma Extrusion is a hippie? And don't even get me started on my daughters, Exosphere and Uranometry.

According to the responses I got, the answer is "no".

And the things I mentioned are just a very, very few of the hippie-ish things I do.

Apparently, you're not really a hippie until:

I'd forgotten about that quote. It's funny since my brother calls me a hippie since I always wear sandals in the summer.

I don't believe so, I haven't seen anything online to allow such anyway. However, for some of the racers there are multiple ways to get them.

Cloth diapers - fine. Economical and good for the environment.
Food from scratch - fine. Nice and healthy.
No soda in the house - fine. Again, the healthy choice.
Hemp sandles - hippie.

Magma Extrusion isn't very hippy like. Circumstellar and Circumpolar, now those are hippy names... Twin boys!

Are you unemployed?
Are the soles of your feet black?
Did you adopt a stray dog, and name him something like "Resin"?

If you answered no to any of these questions, you aren't a hippie. Keep trying.

This is silly.

I'm about as far from a hippie as one can get but we plan to use cloth diapers when we have kids. This is what I know from my family and Kate knows from hers. Besides, they're cheaper in the long run.

I virtually always cook from scratch just because it tastes better and is also healthier. The fact is B"H I am by all accounts a damned good cook, and I like real food. Processed stuff is usually blah, and again it usually costs more.

As for coke (yes, this is what I grew up calling all carbonated drinks), my wife just doesn't like them *they make her sick) and I only drink is at home when I have a sinus headache. For some bizarre reason it helps.

I don't own any flip-flops or sandals, hemp or otherwise though.

I don't have a wii or a car.

I'm no expert, but I remember hippies not liking video games for some reason.

Also, Honda Civic and a Minivan? You call those hippie cars?






I mean, at least if you are going to do a modern car and be hippies, it has to run on vegetable oil or natural gas or something. At the very LEAST it needs to be a hybrid.

Oh, I love granola but with my wife not working (outside the home) and my wages being close to the lower end of the lower end of the country and living in income restricted housing, I might have to make exception with the "yuppie" part.

With the added benefit that it pollutes just as bad as a car run on fossil fuels! Yay Saving the earth!

Which, the Hybrid? It's actually quite a bit worse, but it at least shows that you're trying, right?

Not hippie.

I'd say you were on the verge of it though. If you convert any of your vehicles to run on biodiesel, or better yet straight up veg oil that you collect from restaurant grease traps, and use a combination of Chinese herbs, yoga and crystal energy to maintain your health while denouncing western medicine as chemical poison, then you are a hippie.

Oh, and you must stink of patchouli, and use a rock as deodorant.

How is it worse? I'm not trying to be funny here, I'm actually curious.

Hybrid cars, notably the Toyota Prius, are made of such exotic materials to make them work the way they do, that when you factor in the environmental damage of mining, refining, working, and transporting all these materials from so many places on earth, they more than cancel out their good fuel economy.

This includes not only their manufacturing, but when they need new batteries, the batteries are apparently extremely toxic and hard to recycle or dispose of properly.
