Here:
1) Girls will like you. I got 3 that like me.
2) You become a hunk.  [WTF]
3) You will become more healthy, so in turn you will live longer.

19. You enjoy the simpler things in life (I've been known to cheer when I spot a new rail or ledge).
20. Video games and television seem like distractions on a sunny afternoon.

+1 to whoever said "insanity is now jusitifed." Classic, and true.

22) You get cool nicknames like 'Skipper', 'M2', and 'Monk E. Boi'.

(Though you ever notice the most respected or skilled freerunners/traceurs are known by their full names? David Belle, Daniel Illabca, etc.)
