Fixer-vation (Fixie Observation)

I love seeing the guys doing an Escher loop at intersections because they can't stop their bikes. I used to do that as a kid, just because I was a kid...but these guys do it because its easier to take up the whole intersection, risking being hit by a turning car, pedestrian or perhaps a city bus, than to slip their feet out of the straps and put their feet down.

Its either that or just blow the intersection at full bore. I've almost hit a few that did that. Not intentionally of course...

So tell me again how the lack of a freewheel and brakes in combination with a single gear is superior to the standard modern road bike?
