Hippies are a primitive breed of human which came about through non-selective breeding and inbreeding which happened during the 1960's in many parts of America and the Western World in general. Distinguishing features among Hippies are long, uncombed hair; bright colored clothing; lack of footwear; jewelry consisting of beads and/or small pebbles held together by twine; and general uncleanliness. Many male Hippies also wear long beards.
Hippies are technologically challenged and have a limited grasp of simple machinery. As such they are usually seen operating bicycles, guitars, and older model automobiles which are often in a state of severe disrepair.
Hippies live in Communes which are small to medium sized villages consisting of primitive dwellings which may house as many as fifty to seventy-five individuals. Some Hippies will work to feed the larger group, however most spend their days lounging about, listening to music, using drugs, and mating in a random manner. Some Hippies engage in agricultural activity, namely the growing of their "Sacred Herb", a minor narcotic known as Marijuana.
There have been several large Hippie migrations in past years, however current populations are remaining sedentary with only a select few still traveling about the country. Some of these groups have splintered from the main species and are now called "Phishheads" in reference to their worship of a God called "Phish", in contrast to the traditional Hippie pantheon which consisted of an organization known as the "Grateful Dead".
Because of their unresponsible breeding habits and general lack of hygene, Hippies are known to carry many diseases. However Hippies are by and large harmless.
Hippies have no known predators: however there are several groups who they regularly come into conflict with. Namely the Fuzz, Squares, and Punks.
Some noted Hippies are Jerry Garcia: Tommy Chong: Ken Kesey: and Bill Clinton
