Listening to INXS is by far more hip than singing and humming G. Michael.

Neither are Hip, have you ever actually read the comic?

whether someone 'is hip' is different from whether they are 'more hip' than the other.

two people could both 'be hip', and one could be 'more hip' than the other person.

conversely, you could have two people, of which one is 'more hip' than the other, but neither would be considered especially hip by the general population of hipsters and hippies, and others as well.

I think we should just call every thread "etymology" and be done with it the way people carry on about the meaning of words.

Amusing comic.

Cool I love this comic. Geo. Michael & INXS, it takes me back.

For fuck's sake, Tempest, stop it. There's no point and you're inspiring hate for yourself. Are you that desperate to have threads in your name?

I found the last panel amusing, but what makes this comic is Ariel wailing on the air guitar.

I still don't see why Arc posting the comic sends you into such a frothing, prepubescent tizz, snacky.

Tat loses page views when people visit the forum to get the comic instead of the website.

Not sure if that's significant though.

I like to imagine that tat doesn't lose much sleep over the less-then 200 page views.

agreed - it's really not that bad. someone has to post the comic, i guess, and arc's posting, sans comment, lets us all just sorta drift into the conversation. i really don't find myself overwhelmed with hate because the first poster hasn't said anything.

The first post is completely devoid of any content that Tat himself didn't create, which annoys me in the same way that seeing a bunch of blank, gibberish, or completely worthless posts would, plus it includes a vague feeling of getting credit without doing anything. Moreover, it's his only post in almost all of these threads, and the page is filled with threads made almost exclusively by him (which is annoying as well), so he appears to be a major contributor without contributing anything.
Also my reactions escalate based on the number of times they are ignored.

tl;dr: Mildly annoying per thread, rage-inducing in large numbers.
