I’m pretty sure that in order to be considered cool, you have to “discover” stuff before other people do. I’m usually the last to know about something — or just don’t care about whatever it is in the first place. So being, or becoming cool probably isn’t on the horizon for me anytime soon.
But in general, a lot of humans love to become all dramatic on each other, when one of us hasn’t heard a particular song, or started watching some new tv show yet. We (the discoverers) take so much pride in this. We sometimes talk and act like we are the ones actually in the band or something. I do think it’s admirable to be a fan from the beginning, but I think we can all probably take it down a notch.
Its like, we’ll see someone post a meme on Facebook, and react all— “Will you look at what this fool has posted..I have seen this already. Like five months ago. And no one posts those anymore. You loser..How dare you post something I’ve already seen..You are the most unhip person, ever…You should kill yourself.”
Idk, I assume we’ve all encouraged a suicide at one point or another while scrolling through our newsfeed on Facebook. Or maybe it’s just me. Who knows.
