This isn't "nobody uses them", because undoubtedly there is some asshole who thinks it's 'funny' to say out of sight or groovy, it's more of "nobody uses them ENOUGH in regular conversation".

Like Radical. Not enough people say radical anymore. Or use the cool radical hand signal (pinky/thumb out and waggle your hand, of course)

Mamaluke, Shellacking and Doggonit !

#23 Posted by NecroMongo (64 posts) -

I still use rad.

I occasionally use the word "Grouse" which is super out of date aussie slang......one might even call it "daggy".

The way Wayne says "Excellent."

#28 Posted by _Chad (962 posts) -

saying something is pimp.

#29 Posted by JoeBigfoot (114 posts) -

It started off as a joke, but I now say "Ace" all the time instead of "good" or "OK".

#30 Posted by Kerned (1170 posts) -

Calling something bad a "drag."

Confirming with "right on."

#32 Posted by tread311 (357 posts) -

I still say bummer like some kind of Ninja Turtle. Most people I know use "word" a lot too and that's been around forever.

"Swell? You know, Clark BeachThunder, there are very few people left in the world these days who sound comfortable saying that word."

I'll go with: "Marvy. Fab. Far out."

#44 Posted by TooSweet (400 posts) -

Fresh, Funk Fresh, Dope (I think this made a hipster comeback though), Def, Tight, ill, illin'. I still use the first three.

#45 Edited by Wacomole (837 posts) -

Wait. What have you got against "groovy" now?

If it's good enough for Bruce...

...it's good enough for anyone!

#50 Posted by Inkerman (1455 posts) -

I use 'brilliant' a lot, but maybe that's still a thing, although I've had some American girls lose their minds when I've said it, so...
