Hipster Whines At Tech Mag For Using His Pic To Imply Hipsters Look The Same, Discovers Pic Was of an Entirely Different Hipster
Funniest thing I've seen in awhile. Cookie cutter "unique snowflake" proves premise that hipsters all look so much alike that he thought a gettys stock image of a hipster was him cruise

Not a fake story this shit really happened.


Normally a headline like "The hipster effect: Why anti-conformists always end up looking the same" would elicit much rolling of eyes here at Vulture Towers.

However, it becomes more intriguing when one learns that the hypothesis described in the article was tested by a series of hilarious post-publication events that then further bolstered the paper's findings.

.....

Accompanying the article was an edited stock image of a generic millennial chap in plaid shirt and standard-issue beanie, or "trendy winter attire", as Getty put it.

The MIT journal's editor-in-chief, Gideon Lichfield, took to Twitter to tell a "cautionary tale" about what followed the article going live:

"We promptly got a furious email from a man who said he was the guy in the photo that ran with the story. He accused us of slandering him, presumably by implying he was a hipster, and of using the pic without his permission.

"Accept now that all you have seen from the day of your birth on the surface of the earth, to the present, are wonderful only because the finite mind of man is confused with fragments of evidence, that, from whatever direction we meet them, spring from an unreachable infinity."

"There was a man who could create what could not be imagined. A temple so great you questioned if it was built with human hands. A man who built an idea into the greatest force the world has ever known. A world built from a single word. I care not for the folly of man but for the end of human contention."

It is just like when people name their kids and their kids end up with either a really stupid pretentious name that labels their parents as hippies, hipsters or ghetto trash etc or a name that a dozen kids in their class have too. The parents are in sync with current times and pick a name they like the sounds of well so do millions of other parents like the sounds of that name too! When ever people try and be different they end up looking more the same. It is a paradox in this world. You subscribe to a subculture and you end up looking like every other Goth, Metal Head, Gang Banger etc.

Being different is very difficult thing to pull off without going to jail, looking stupid or looking like everyone else in that particular subculture you subscribe to.

I put on award winning demos

One time the crew took pictures of everybody setting up the staging area

I was looking at the pictures and thought "Gyood gawd! What IS that ugly dam THING in MY #1 Show?!??" I was mad. Somebody getting rid of that scraggly bean pole looking THING from my show yard!

Don't see too good except up real close. Got to looking closer so i could find this creature and get it with a drilling hammer.

Dam if it wasn't me out there "helping".

I definitely do not approve of nothing looking like me in my own shows! If I saw me on the road, I bet I'd drive over me.

Re: Hipster Whines At Tech Mag For Using His Pic To Imply Hipsters Look The Same, Discovers Pic Was of an Entirely Different Hipster
Millennials and younger, love to show their individuality by looking, thinking, and doing everything the same. Everything is group-think to give the impression of belonging to something. This isn't a new phenom obviously, we all pegged our pants at some point. The internet and instant social media has just made it worse and more 'uniform'. An example, now everyone has the exact same opinion on every comic movie. Ask a hipster what they think of Justice League, you'll get the exact same answer, ask about Wonder Woman, you'll get an opposite but exact same answer. This generation idealizes being the same. Very strange to me.

They were all skinny jeans.
