  1. I don't care about it but I know I'm far behind my generation in a sense that many of the phrases people say on the internet, I have no clue what they're saying. I recently found out what FML, tl;dr:, and sloppy seconds meant... I know nothing, but what do you guys know? Things like lol, btw, and brb are common so those come to me easily (but I'm still a weirdo and sometimes just a bitch for asking my partner what they're saying because I don't know what the text lingo is of the century). So, hit everyone up with those phrases!
  2. Uh, "belt up"?
    Dang, I'm a bit behind too...

    The pound symbol is apparently called hashtag now... Sooo... There's that.

    Then there's smh, Share my Hamburger? Uh, Shave my Hamster?... Save my hat?...Sydney Morning Herald?
    No, out of everything Smh could have been, its something as boring as "Shaking my head."

    RACKS - a gag last month where we communally and good-naturedly mocked every avatar with a bosomy appearance, generally calls attention to the female breast; also can be substituted by a picture of Starcraft 2 Terran Barracks (a structure in the game known colloquially as a 'racks' in competitive play)
  11. @Hellis I think I've heard farbror blå in some movie before, but other than that I've never heard the other ones xD But I live in a really small town, so slang was almost non existing even when I was a teenager haha
