Hippes turned Stiffs
    #3388207 - 11/20/04 09:17 AM (12 years, 20 days ago)

Ok this really confuses me I need some opinions here. I met this guy the other day, in Taco Bell, None the less. I pulled up listening to "Touch of Grey", with mmy windows down, and got out of my car. He said man I can remember what is was like goig on tour with those guys and protesting the war and stuff like that, I don't miss it a bit. He said this as he got out of his Mercedes with a 3 piece business suit. He looks like the man. I thought once a hippie always a hippie, or was he never a hippie and just went though the motions so he could make other people think he was cool. I dunno this kind of mad me sad.

lol, i vote c:
These are baby boomers and yuppies. Ppl thereabouts Jerry's age.
We used to make comments as we crossed the roads along the venues at how they are in porches and talking on a cell phone lol , which were not common then.
To answer your question, yes, he was a hippie.
BTW, I'm glad to see your love for the dead growing.
It's a beautiful thing that not everyone gets to experience.
peace...

Yeah Id say he just changed with time. This isnt a bad thing, as I dont think having money and workin hard is a bad thing. It may not be my thing right now, but people change with time, for better or worse its natural. If everyone just got high and listened to the dead all day, nothing would ever get done. Some must move on... I just hope it doesnt have to be me :smile:

yeah Im lucky. I work at a laboratory behind the scenes so I get to dress as I please. Long hair, painted up pants, tye-dye tees, and raggedy thrift store sweaters all the way. I dont mind dressing up either, but I do enjoy my regular ole compfy clothes.

And by the way... good morning you beautiful people you.

An '05 SL65 AMG only 350 a month ... I doubt it considering the following .....



With 604 horsepower on tap from its twin-turbocharged V-12, the SL65 reigns as AMG's most powerful roadster ever.MSRP $179,720.00*
Engine AMG-built twin-turbocharged 6.0L SOHC 36-valve V-12 engine
Net Power 604 hp @ 5500 rpm
Net Torque 738 lb-ft @ 2,000 - 4,000 rpm


At 7.0 Percent intrest @ 84 months, which is unheard of, the monthly payment is 2792.21... Thats a far cry from 350.00 a month.

This is True ... I guess I shouldn't be so Critical of People like I am sometimes. It just kinda ticked me off when he said "I don't miss it a bit". I mean everyone is entitled to thier own opinion but still it makes me wanna turn my Grateful Dead up 100 decibles !!!

That's all I had to read to decide he never was a hippie IMO.  If he was there during the war and protesting it and truely felt that way, he would still today.  Everyone still has their opinions on vietnam, and I personally think it was a fucking stupid war that wasted men's lives, and still hate the government for spraying our men with chemicals that have caused so much sickness through our vets.  My opinion isn't changing regardless of who I become in life, it's part of me.

It would be like being a devout christian all your life and then one day waking up and for no real reason saying you don't believe in God anymore.  I bet he was a rich boy who evaded the war with daddy's money and went to college during the war or he just wasn't involved with any of it at all.

... :lol:

Hippies rock :smile:

Born: 10/31/83, which makes me a Scorpio.

1) Scorpios are the most highly sexed of all the signs of the zodiac.
2) Scorpios are prone to excesses: booze, drugs, sex, bad puns, etc.
They usually exploit the weaknesses of others, who fall victim to
their capacity for total lust & sexual abberation.
3) Scorpios possess great intellectual curiosity & creative talent. They
think they are rebels & are arrogant, proud, conceited, and worth every
penny of it.

What do you bring to the table?

Good morning Silven. Ya feeling any better bud?
As for what you said... I actually know a guy that studied his whole life to become a minister, then one day he did just that, stopped believing in god, at least the cristian one. People do change and sometimes quite rapidly. I think it is important to realize that there is a reason for all the different types of people on the earth, even the dicks, war mongering idiots, and us travelers to worlds beyond. However I dont claim to know this mystical reason :smile:

Im getting the feeling from this thread that making money and being successful in your own way is bad. Not everyone wants to be one with the trees and eating granola. Maybe the man was an entrepreneur, doctor, or a real estate tycoon, not a coorporate whore as most people think of individuals with money.

I was into whole stoner dude thing, smoke all day, play video games, etc.. it was an experience to say the least.. but now i look back and really dont miss that kind of life. People evolve over time as said a few times in this thread (sick rhyme,, ya dig? haha). Working hard isnt always a bad thing.. To each his own.
