    If he was truly hip, he'd only accept bit coins.

    Hip and "cool" are the same as they have always been, do your own thing and be really really good at it.

    Not sure if these help, eh, don't care. I knew about them before you.

    Yikes! I'm trying to fit baseball hats into this, and I can't figure out where.

    Hmm. Well if its a trucker cap and it's worn ironically, you can insert it in now. If its more of a traditional ball cap then you'd have to go back maybe 5-10 years.

    But ball caps aren't as reliable of a metric as beards.

    This is scary. Because of the irony, of course.

    Apparently you're hip if you live in a van or tiny home, are vegan, lactose and gluten intolerant, believe taxes will fix the climate and wear skinny jeans, flannel shirts or fluro t shirts and have a full beard.
    It also helps if you have a YouTube channel and spend every day talking about yourself using your hands on camera while reviewing the latest overpriced garbage or brand name products and peddling your own line of new merch to electronic sampled background music.
    Oh, and you need to do Yoga too.

    Being hip is a complicated business these days.

    These are timeless afflictions that are most often cured by an accumulation of birthdays, kids and a mortgage. ;)

    I'm hip enough to know that's just slightly behind the curve and unhip enough to not know what comes next.

    Hip is polarity reversal.

    For this usage of the word Hip. I feel the poster on CL is letting potential buyers know that he/she are informed/knowledgeable on different methods of payment.

    You can't beast East Bay Grease for hipness! Bruce's lead breaks are funky as can be, and his AFRO! And what can I say about Rocco and Chester that hasn't already been said?
