Is "cool" out of date yet? That seems to be the longest running socially acceptable slang term in history.
I feel like I'm outdated saying that, because everyone around me uses "awesome" now.
I get that a lot too.
Also, "nice" and "sweet"
I say stuff like you're joshin, bee's knees, cat's pajamas...
Also use gnarly, rad, amazeballs, and neat/neato. Some of them don't feel dated, but these have always been things that I've said.
What I need to stop doing is saying derpy and making the troll face when saying problem.
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)
WHAT SAY YOU, GIANT BOMB COMMUNITY?
I also say radical a bunch. I'll even do the pinky/thumb hand gesture thing from time to time!
But not both at the same time. That would be seriously...UN-radical?
Pinky/Thumb thing = hang loose. Not rad. The combo is a thing...but the shaka isn't 'radical' fool, they just go together well like wine and cheese or something.
So I guess saying 'hang loose' is looking out of date then.
Maybe you should start a new trend and actually sign 'radical' when and say 'hang loose' - cross your fingers and draw the square root sign like this dude and say "hang loose". Now you're rad and boffin. You can thank me later when the chicks see it and swarm you.
I say several of the things in this thread! Never gotten a weird look saying "rad," though, and only one super anti-rap kid ever called me out on "dope."
The one I was gonna post is "That's so pringles," which was really only ever slang in the FGC, but since I wasn't around to use it in its heyday, I'm bringing it back now.
