Mathematician Solves the Hipster Equation

“Why is it that all hipsters try to look different but end up looking the same? This mathematical neuroscientist just solved the paradox with statistical physics

It’s a paradox that threatens the “hip” in “hipster” and endangers the entire existence of counterculture: By seeking to avoid labels and forgo the conventional in an effort to be original, somehow all hipsters end up looking the same.

This sociological enigma is often accepted as fodder for insults against groups of youth wearing a uniform of Carhartt beanies and torn tights, but why does it happen and how can it be explained?”
