you knew you'd be the last to post.. and you're high fiving out into nothingness. It's a statement on the vapidness of Internet Culture, isn't it?

Or you were just up late. either way.

Davis says:
@Mackle is correct. This is a statement that while we do feel some sense of emotional fulfillment online and through communities such as this, we are still just people typing on boxes, looking at lit up pictures of other people and imagining our interactions with them.

It is only through real, offline communication that Whiskerino excels at bringing together likeminded individuals (see the regional meetups and "Throwdowns" as have occurred in the past, as well as uploaded photos including multiple participants).

This photo is loneliness. It's an attempt to reach out beyond the boarders of a a horizontal, 3:4 ratio picture and actually touch someone. We're here for you, @osmutante. We're here.
