    Two guys and a girl in the waiting room. One guy has long unkempt hair and a nose ring and is wearing a hoodie made out of what appears to be car seat cover material, the girl has unkempt hair with a bright green streak in it and 10+ ear piercing, a nose and lip ring and is wearing pajamas pants and the last guy? Scrawny white dude with dreadlocks.

    Hipsters abound.

    man

    i don't think i would count those as hipsters

    as a rule, if they look like they belong at bonaroo or burning man, i don't think they count

    oh, let me help!

    Will, what is a hipster?

    in my experience, they are unusually earnest artsy bohemian kids who are on a constant quixotic crusade for personal authenticity.

    if anything, they are the least sneeringly ironic clique out there. the extent of their irony is generally a kind of good-natured celebration of kitsch.

    Totally does not mesh with my experience at all.

    Pretty much.

    They're people trying to be artists with no real idea where to go with it from my experience. They seek uniqueness for the sake of it.

    Wait, does hipster just mean 'grungy youth' now? I thought the necessary and sufficient condition was a style defined by irony.

    nooo

    i dispelled this irony-centered hipster myth yesterday.

    i agree that trashy/ grungy hippie kids probably aren't hipsters tho.

    They're not. They're this weird hybrid of the people who didn't grow up around large urban environments, who's style and mannerisms seem very late 90's with a grunge/hot topic/metal kids/traveling bums aesthetic.

    Hipsters are modern day beatniks or hippies or flappers. Pick a period and there are hipster by a different name. And yes, hippies were the hipsters of their era. Then they became yuppies.

    Really? I've always thought you couldn't really know all that much in the world until you at least understood yourself. The romantic idea of hitting the road to find out your mettle, breaking off the chains responsibility and expectation to find out what exists in between, I can understand why people would search for that.

    But the experiences are only valid if you actually learn from them. Just collecting exciting experiences as so many coins to amplify your self worth, then yeah, pretty much bullshit.

    or they wear terrible clothing and have terrible derivative opinions
    they want to get their MFA and study ecclesiology but they don't mention that their family pays for everything
    they believe themselves to be highly intelligent but propagate the same tired higher-tier meme thoughts to all their friends in a circle of vapid, unfounded idiocy

    okay so I may have a bunch of hipster acquaintances who are terrible, and that may not be because they are hipster

    Well if you're into art, as is common among hipsters, there's a pretty understandable, but misplaced, desire to create something unique.

    Also, I hate written IQ tests because of bullshit like this:
    Which animal does not belong?

    A. Deer
    B. Cow
    C. Giraffe
    D. Wolf
    E. Elk

    Well, let's see here. C is the only one that doesn't naturally live in North America. D is the only carnivore. B is the only domesticated one.

    So which property was more important to the test creator? I'm going to guess carnivore.

    Oh no I guessed wrong! It was actually B, for domestication.

    And how is this a test of IQ versus general knowledge? It's not. It's bullshit.

    C for syllables

    C because it ends with a vowel!

    E because it begins with a vowel!

    D because the test writer was wearing a howling wolf t-shirt that day!

    Who the fuck knows!
    A because it's the only one that doesn't seem to have a unique distinctive property that sets it apart from the others.

    my aunt asked me to call and order the chinese food she wants (which is torture to me since i'm dieting)

    so i call,

    "may i have a general tso's chicken combo, substituting mei fun (really thin rice noodle) for the fried rice"

    and the lady's like "ok is extra three dollars"

    so i clear that with my aunt

    man

    what happened to chines food being a quick, cheap meal

    eight dollar platter plus three dollar addition plus four dollars for side of crab rangoon plus two dollars for drink plus one dollar for delivery... even if she decides not to tip above that, it's 19 bucks for chinese takeout

    craziness

    i am way too thrifty to ever order like her

    Well yeah, but you don't necessarily have to be rich to do it. Just makes it easier to call moms and dad when shit gets a little too real. But I met plenty of kids bumming around the US who were decidedly not rich kids.

    All I ask if that if you're going to try and relive Kerouac's "On the Road", just happen to read "Big Sur" after for a little more context.
