Ever heard about “Straight-Edge”?!

I just found out that I am (at least sort of) living the “Straight-Edge“-Way-Of-Life…
Without even knowing about the existence of this “culture” I followed the principle rules quite well (even though the reasons might differ): no cigarettes, no alcohol and no recreational drug use! Even some additional commitments like abstaining from promiscuous sexual behavior and caffeine are fully or partially (this refers only to the caffeine, since cola has it too) fulfilled.
I would actually be the perfect Straight-Edger, if I just refused eating meat and listened to Hardcore Punk of some kind.
Which are “unfortunately” two things I could definitely not live with… never!
So besides these discrepancies I would be eligible for wearing a black cross tattoo on the back of my hands. Which apparently is the “sign” to identify a “real” Straight-Edger… and again another fact I just wouldn’t like…
Well… one thing I have in common with these people is the fact that many other people just do not (want to) understand…
Greetz to Thomas at this point ;-)
