    Short Dumb question.

    What do you call the "type" of people I'll describe. A young, urban, male (gay or straight), mostly white (but there are many black guys too), kind of yuppi-ish, big on the latest technology trends, often wear Converses or Puma shoes (probably their target audience). I know it's hard to explain, but if anyone has any idea of what I'm talking about, please let me know lol. I'm just trying to figure it out.

    Put a Pabst Blue Ribbon on his hand--He's a Hipsters.

    Put some Beats headphones on his head--He's a Wigger.

    Put a Nintendo 3DS in one hand and a copy of 'History Of Philosophy' in the other--He's just socially confused.

    After thinking about it, I would say the type I have in mind in somewhere between a Hipster and a Yuppie. Not sure if there is a specific name for that.

    Does he ride a fixie bicycle? Fixies are the new skateboard. Fixies are the bicycles that city bike messengers popularized; no shifter, no brakes (because no freewheeling either).

    That's not a "fixie"… That's a high wheel.
