OVER! The world as we know it
It’s time for hipsters to “get with it”, while there’s still an “it” to get with. This time “it’s” so rife with irony that “it’s” a super natural fit for a next hipster trend. The “it” we speak of is the end of the world. Call it Armageddon, Ragnarok or the “end times”, it’s here to stay! We actually thought that claims of the end of the world would have subsided after 12/21/12 Mayan calendar fizzle but it looks like we all cant leave well enough (or worst enough in this case) alone. Now NASA has funded a study by a power-hipster-nerd-tank called the National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center (SESYNC) which predicts the end of our civilization. The totally hip tsunami of irony starts kicking in when we realize that the end of time has been popular since the beginning of time. It’s called Millenarianism, or the “belief by a religious, social, or political group or movement in a coming major transformation of society, after which all things will be changed.” Some of our personal favorite apocalypticists have been the “Convulsionnaires of Saint-Médard” and “BabyMetal.” The point is that the world has always been ending, so roll with it. Case in point, according to the bible (quoting obscure and suppressed biblical “facts” is always hip!) the sight of the final battle at the end of time, Armageddon, is also the site of the very first “battle” ever recorded. Hows that for high level irony, hipster?
