Mannerheim's Hipster PDA

    Newer Older

    Ever ahead of his time, Carl Gustaf Emil Mannerheim comes up with the Hipster PDA way before anyone else. 1930's maybe...

      thomas jefferson had a version that he used which i think would have been earlier (his term was 1801-1809)

      I just noticed this has been viewed an obscene number of times! Can someone mention where they saw this from?

      I wonder how long before the hipster Egyptian papyrus scroll fad comes along. Just think how cool it would be to sit in Starbucks sucking on your latte with a scroll instead of some boring moleskine or stack of index cards with a cheap binder clip.

      Interesting to note that his journal is in Swedish which might indicate that the journal is from before 1917.

      The 1930's bit was just a guess, actually. i'll have to go take another looksee to check when he wrote it - maybe they'll let me riffle through it :D

      Does this say, "I hate central Asians," on it?

    8. arabella 115 months ago | reply

      Grobstein, unless it looks & spells exactly the same in Swedish as it does in English, I seriously doubt it says "I hate central Asians".

      75 bucks for the Jefferson version seems to go a bit against the spirit of Hipster PDA

      Sorry folks, the last lines are "använd i central asien", "use in central asia".

      "använd i hela central asien", "use in the whole of central asia" ... interesting, could this be dated before his big Asian voyage?
