I assumed people liked to joke around with their friends. I've made worse assumptions. Maybe I should just go around calling people stupid for doing something that doesn't appeal to me.
There are two points being argued as if they're the same here:
The harlem shake isn't fun (according to some people)
Any fun at all isn't fun (or, Xenomit doesn't like fun)
They're linked because of a clever little jump made by Tremulos which said that "doing the harlem shake is fun, and if you don't like fun you're stupid"
This whole argument is piggybacking on the assumption that Xenomit doesn't like fun because he doesn't like the harlem shake. The point is that the harlem shake cannot be ultimately defined as either fun or not fun because that is down to personal preference. I don't know if Xenomit likes fun or not, he's too busy defending himself arguing to say anything useful.
I'm assuming he does like things that are fun and that the harlem shake isn't one of those things, although having said that I'd also wager that he's never even tried it and has some sort of superiority complex over people who don't care about looking stupid.
Also, yurgenburgen hit the nail on the head with the thing about the safety gear. If something had gone wrong and someone had died while harlem shaking there would be a different tune being sung.
