Episode 95 - Rockin' This Sick Blog, Bruh

Hey.  Y'know what really grinds my gears?  When people use the world "rock" to mean to do something well.  Y'know, "she rocked that dress," to mean she wore it and looked good in it.  I hate that.  I dunno why.  It just sounds stupid to me.

I also hate the word "sick" to mean good.  "This new game is so sick, bruh!"  :scoots:  I think that one annoys me even more.  I know it makes me sound old, but I think a lot of new slang sounds dumb.  Every kid experiences that phase where they think they're so cool with their new slang, and they make fun of the lame adults who aren't "with it", and the adults complain that it's stupid.  Well, I get it now, and if you're a young teen reading this, then one day you will too.  One day, sooner than you think, you'll look back at "sick" the way we all look back at phrases like "groovy", "tubular", and "far out" now.  It will all sound stupid to you.  Now, I'm not saying that there's something inherently wrong with all slang.  I use slang, too.  But I just hate how it has to be reinvented so frequently.  It's like every ten years or so, youth have to invent an entirely new language dialect.  What's the point?

Then again, any and all slang sounds cool if used ironically.  ;)

I learned "far out" from Cheech and Chong albums. ^_^ I think a worse scenario is when people use slang when they aren't excited, but are speaking of mundane things. For example, my brother says he is going to "bounce the laundry." So I am supposed to infer the verb? It's like how the Smurfs have one word for all verbs and adjectives. You smurfing mother smurfer! I try to not use the verb "do" too much. So I say "wash laundry" rather than "do laundry." How do you "do" laundry? We are seeing a dumbing down of society. Or a bouncing smurf of smurf.

I was with a friend who was talking to a guy about work. He said someone did a certain job and "made jack." My friend misheard him and said, "oh, he doesn't make jack?" The guy corrected him and said, "No, he makes jack." 

So to summarize: Making jack = earning a lot of money. Not making jack = not earning much money. Who decided that this is what those nonsensical combination of words would mean? The same person who decided inflammable means flammable?

Wait, wait, wait a minute... really?  I thought those meant the same thing!  Y'know, like fat chance and slim chance!  What a world.
