I know that people like to complain about hipsters, and so do I (in jest), but in my many years of living in neighborhoods alongside of hipsters and thugs, I can say that a hipster has never broken into my car, waved weapons at me, shot at people on my street, set my friend's car on fire or broken into my apartment and stole my shiat, unlike the thugs, who have, so I think I have to go with the hipsters here.

Reminds me of the joke-

Roger Gresse, an elderly man, from Zanesville, OH, was going up to bed, when his wife told him that he'd left the light on in the garden shed. Roger opened the back door to go turn off the light, but saw that there were people in the shed stealing things.

He phoned the police, who asked, "Is someone in your house?"

He said "No," but some people are breaking into my garden shed and stealing from me."

Then the police dispatcher said. "All patrols are busy. You should lock your doors and an officer will be along when one is available."

Roger said, "Okay."

He hung up the phone and counted to 30.

Then he phoned the police again.

"Hello, I just called you a few seconds ago because there were people stealing things from my shed. Well, you don't have to worry about them now because I just shot them," and he hung up.

Within five minutes, six police cars, a SWAT team, a helicopter, two fire trucks, a paramedic, and an ambulance showed up at the Gresse residence, and caught the burglars red-handed.

One of the policemen said to Roger, "I thought you said that you'd shot them!"

Roger said, "I thought you said there was nobody available!"

He lives on the second floor over a coffee shop a few doors off the heart of Bedford Avenue. Has to be louder than hell there.

What kind of noise do hipsters make? Is it that constant whine of, "I was into x before it was cool"?

Apos: It was either this or suffer a voice loss from yelling "Get off my lawn" repeatedly.

Considering that in Williamsburg, all grass was either banned or used for pesticide testing over the past 150 years,, I doubt there was much lawn to get off of. Maybe it was more like "get off my chewing gum spotted sidewalk".

Whatever. I am just glad i don't live there anymore. Sound like this dude is one of the really old holdouts from the brooding, blissful halcyon days where cars were regularly set on fire in the streets and the crunch of crack vials underfoot was a sure sign you had returned home to the Burg.

Good times, good times.
