Taking a picture with an iPad. Do you have any idea how ridiculous you look when you do this?

Lot's of this. It is especially annoying when you are behind this person.

Nah, I'm with them on that. I like bacon as much as anybody else, but the complete obsession with it is a little weird. It's not like bacon is anything new, or significantly different from what it's been the last couple hundred years.

While I don't talk about bacon, I will gladly hear anything new anyone has to say on the subject.

And I like my toe shoes, they've really helped my running and are good for working my calves.

/I also occasionally listen to dubstep... so my opinions might be in question by default.

I was always led to believe swag was "stuff we all get" in reference to the magnets, buttons, stickers and whatnot you got from the stands. When I went to Comiccon a few years back even the people at the badge station were inviting people over to "come get your swag!"

Talking incessantly about Apple products: It's funny that Apple's most famous commercial was about releasing brain dead zombies from the technology status quo, and now you can't swing an iPhone without some other Apple-obsessed maniac evangelizing at you about how "THIS IS THE MOST INTUITIVE AND BEAUTIFUL PRODUCT ON THE MARKET!" Then there are the people who put the Apple stickers on their cars, so that other drivers may know they have an expensive computer. Oy vey. Great, you love a multibillion-dollar corporation.

I honestly had never thought of it this way. But now that you mention it...yes, it's almost exactly that.

Not giving up my VFFs no matter what other people think. Best running shoe I've ever had.

In my case, yes. I could only run for a couple miles before knee pain made me stop. Now I can maintain a faster pace and run for longer without pain.

Bacon!!...How did this article get a green light on FARK? WTF?

Agree with the Toe-shoe thingys. Simply awful!

I was disc golfing one day, young hipster couple pulled in as I was leaving....one of them made a big production of putting them on before hitting the course.

This is such a Gawker article. I'm surprised half of the list wasn't just "patriarchy" or "offensive jokes" or other things they just constantly biatch over

That's the usage that I am familiar with as well, but somehow some people are beginning to use it as the opposite of FAIL it seems. Perhaps they are connotating it to the word swagger.
 
2012-12-12 04:46:53 PM  
Swag is okay, it's the example they gave that was wrongness.

Swag is free shiat they hand out. No other valid uses.

As for the rest, well, trends play out and evolve.

If you're talking about bacon, you're not eating it. If you're eating bacon, you're not talking about it. Therefore, if you're truly into bacon, talk less, eat more.

Bacon is the Tebow of breakfast foods. It gets a inordinate amount of attention, but doesn't spend much time on the field. Now, I love me some bacon, but people talk about it like they eat it three meals a day. Let's be honest... we eat it like once a week.

I was confused by this too. I sincerely hope it was used ironically in the crappy blog post because apparently twee is something that needs to die more than just about anything else on that list.

From: http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=twee
"Something that is sweet, almost to the point of being sickeningly so. As a derogatory descriptive, it means something that is affectedly dainty or quaint, or is way too sentimental.
...
It comes from the way the word sweet sounds when said in baby talk."

First time I heard it used was in True Blood.

I hate the term "epic" because most of the time it's being used by some retard in a completely stupid fashion.
I also think the foot shoes are goofy and I suspect anything you're gaining in the running department is all in your head, but that being said if you want to wear the goofy looking shoes go ahead.
