Startup: Manual Instagram

Why subject yourself to someone else’s cloud based service to make fake-retro photos when you can buy your own machine to fake it for you? That’s right, real hipster douchebags don’t do what everyone else is doing. You spend a lot of money to look cheap and get upset when people notice.

    Can you even get Polaroids any more?

    If only there were a way we could skip the whole taking-a-picture-of-a-picture step, and just have a small printer attachment that could hook up to a phone. Somehow. If only the phone had some sort of way of connecting another device. If only.

      Thanks for being there this a.m. The hoons have come out with support, but you were the first, so I thank you. Something just pushed my big red button this morning and POW! Things gets all squirrely.

        I'm getting annoyed at Hooniverse right now. There are a whole bunch of people bitching and whining about how they're offended about this, or that, or wonk wonk wonk. I'm getting email after email on both sites from people who are saying, "OMG HE USED A BAD WORD AND I'VE NEVER HEARD SUCH OFFENSIVE THINGS BEFORE". Fuck off. We said from the get-go, we would allow swearing and naughty words, and if you don't like it, go over to AutoBlog. We have a language filter built in, we leave it turned off, figuring people can put on their big-boy panties for long enough to realize that a word is just a word. If I say "fuck" or "frack" or "frig" or "f**k", it's the same word. Where we draw the line is when the swear words are not being used creatively, or in an entertaining fashion. If you're just swearing gratuitously, we'll ask you to knock it off. Or, that's how it's supposed to work.

          That sucks hard erect monkeydick. I wasn't on the 'verse yesterday and haven't noticed that much complaining, but since a few weeks ago i've noticed a big increse in inane comments and snarky nit-picking insted of the usual funny, constructive nit-picking.

          If you're interested in why and how people are so easily(and loudly) offended nowadays, Spoilt Rotten: The Toxic Cult of Sentimentality by Theodore Dalrymple is a good read.

          Though i'm sort of glad i wasn't there, and it's good it wasn't yesterday when you accidentally gave mod rights to me instead of Antti since there can't possibly be two Finns on here.

          • The Professor

            TWO Finns?!?

            I'm pretty sure i was born three decades too late and on the wrong continent, though.

          Can you just disable the report button?

          I mean, you guys scan through everything enough that they'll see something if it is truly offensive.

        • Number_Six

          Well that is fucked. I thought it was really funny and never imagined that someone would find it offensive.

      • The Professor

        I'll have to go read the thread, but I'll say this in support:

        Fuck fuck fuckity fuck fuck fuck. (say it fast)

    • The Professor

      You're mad! Mad I tell you! There are some things that man was never intended to do!

      /I saw that thing yesterday, and I couldn't see the point either.
