Poll: Wussy or Sissy what am I?

Okay so I've been called a Wussy by 600DA because I train to race and judge whether or not that training has been sucessful on my race results.

DreamTheater has called me a Sissy because I ride rollers.

Now I'm not completely sure what the difference is and I'm not sure you can actually be both simultaneously. I need to know so I can fix my sig to show the proper state of my wuss-sissyness.

You're a wussy because you listen to The Smiths.

You need to balance things w/ a dose of Motorhead. It's all about balance, ying & yang and all that good stuff.

Being swissy would give you an excuse to buy this. It's Swiss, so close enough.

Is 600DA a real guy? I don't think I've actually seen him anywhere...he's sort of like snuffaluffagus on sesame street where everyone talks about him but no one ever sees him.

Only a putz would ask such a question.

I'm voting "wussy" just because of the history.

Swussy? The chemical equation would look like this (Snick may need to correct me though):

Sy4 + Wy + Py3 - EPO + o2 = (Common name) Austin Monkey Boy?
