Hipsters Are Destroying New York, Claims Subway Rag

Evil Swedish free subway rag Metro went big this morning in an attempt to make sense of the current NYC population undercount. Their online headline is "Hipsters to Blame for Census Losses?" but they amped it up younger for the bleary subway crowd. Also maybe it was those pesky "illegal immigrants"! Or something else! Mm, hipster outrage bait. (via, via)

I liked the census' old records better.

@djfreshie I was into the Postal Service before everybody else got those forms.

I really only answer questions on the B-side.

"among others" – for when you don't feel like making claims that are true.

For free, you want truth?

deepomega (#1,720)

@C_Webb: The truth may set you free, but I guess that doesn't work in reverse.

Look at this Census-ducking hipster.

And thus even more federal money goes to Hipster-free Wyoming.

@MParcells Nothing ironic about it: Wyoming sucks.

The census can't just mash all the doorbell buttons at once, like normal people do?

@joeks@twitter (#10,808)

I was over hipster-bashing before it got popular. (Sorry.)

How do you get rid of the undocumented hipsters?

boyofdestiny (#1,243)

@Smitros I say send 'em back where they came from: mom's house.

Hipsters ruin everything.

Hmmm. Went to the link, only to be told that regrettably, "this article has expired". No word on whether it was survived by any other articles.

Tulletilsynet (#333)

@SeanP Yeah, just go to the front page, it's still around.

This also resulted in a massive under-reporting of bicycle gears.

Cool, I bet it definitely wasn't people afraid of admitting they're in illegal sharing situations set up by reckless landlords! This is definitely not a problem caused by people with any modicum of power!

If it's too pandering, you're not old enough.
