Comment thread encompasses all that is stupid with people and companies. As one of the comments says, "everyone fancies themselves as a hipster". You can't be using Instagram or Hipstamatic and claim you're too hip for Facebook. #hipstamatic #instagram #Facebook #sheeple #lemmings #reddit #discussion #stupidity #society #acquisition #pub
Relevant bit: "I hate it when people call themselves “entrepreneurs” when what they’re really trying to do is launch a startup and then sell or go public, so they can cash in and move on..." - Steve Jobs #truth #bullshit #disingenuous #steve #jobs #entrepreneur #society #success #quote #hard #work #pub
As the subtitle says, "C'mon, we all know you're not really going to delete it.". Or at least almost all these people will move on to another ethically identical product or come back to Instagram in the future. Finally, these people are posting this on Twitter...LOL. And how many have a Facebook account they use more than once a month? of these people #stupidity #lemmings #sheeple #society #outrage #hypocrisy #social #media #twitter #attention #whores #ethics #web2.0 #Facebook #instagram #pub

As a commenter on Hacker News states about the site/theory, "Ladder theory is a ridiculous construct for people desperately trying to understand love from a purely intellectual point of view. It strikes me as one of those things that's correct enough to make it look like they have something; but at the same time, its reductionistic viewpoint causes you to close yourself off from wonderful friendships that end up developing into something more. And you won't realize you're doing this until it's happened several times...if you ever introspect enough to realize that. That is the problem with something like this: it isn't intellectually rigorous, it just has the facade. The cost of simply holding the belief is higher than what you get out of it. It is not a truism, it's some kid writing on his blog." #social #dynamics #society #sex #relationships #interesting #pua #males #females #heirarchy #status #pub
"Sources close to local man Mike Ferguson confirmed Saturday that over time they have learned not to bring up their friend's utter failure to achieve anything whatsoever in life, a sensitive topic they said has always been a bit of a sore spot for him." #satire #funny #society #people #life #sucks #ambition #success #failure #article #pub
"Anyway, you would totally hate me as your girlfriend. I'd be all needy and dramatic and slowly growing to love you. If I was your girlfriend, I would never be able to tell you all about the other asshole guys I date and pretend I don't see how much it crushes you. Let's never lose that. That's what makes us us." #satire #funny #social #dynamics #hierarchy #beta #males #females #society #people #girlfriend #pub
Alain de Botton examines our ideas of success and failure -- and questions the assumptions underlying these two judgments. Is success always earned? Is failure? He makes an eloquent, witty case to move beyond snobbery to find true pleasure in our work. #alain #botton #success #failure #meritocracy #society #elitism #bullshit #lies #perceptions #work #video #talk #pub

"New research suggests that misinformed people rarely change their minds when presented with the facts — and often become even more attached to their beliefs. The finding raises questions about a key principle of a strong democracy: that a well-informed electorate is best." #interesting #personal #society #stupidity #research #pub

"These terms are meant to be for ethnicity not race. Though race can be a part of ones ethnicity, ethnicity may have nothing to do with race at all. This is the clap trap and misunderstanding I see all the timer here on Reddit. The problem is the PC crowd embraced what academia tried to do by introducing "Ethnicity" to get away from racism and instead it had become synonymously with "race."" #well_explained #explained #politics #racism #ethnicity #society #PC #pub
