The Bomb: He/She/It is
the bomb. I hate that phrase.
"How was the movie?" "It was the
bomb." or "Let's go to that resteraunt, it's the bomb." It's a stupid phrase that has caught
because a bunch of punks started saying it, probably in reference to the
best known bomb in history (the atom bomb), and now all these stupid
little jerks on the Jenny Jones show say it, and I hope they all
Talk to the Hand: This is usually said by
manly-women with dog-like facial features (huge veins, snarling, and
sometimes foaming at the mouth) during an argument. It's usually
accompanied by a panning of the head from left to right, and followed up
with a solid "No you don't" or "uh-uh, no way girlfriend"
(See Head Panning in Gestures).
Dubba-Dubba: I hesitate to even call it a
word, but "Dubba" has recently been used
on the WB network to promote their shows. It's a retarded way of saying
"double", like in the letter 'W', so instead of it being the "Double-U B
Netowrk" it's the "Dubba-U B Network". They've made a whole song and
dance out of it featuring the entire cast of the WB universe dancing and
singing their "Dubba-Dubba" nonsense.
Trippy / Tripping: Examples: "that movie
was trippy." or "she was tripping out on me." These words probably came
about as a way of expressing the feelings induced by being stoned
or high. Pathetic gen-X trendy losers usually use this
sound edgy or clueless, when in reality they're just a bunch of
suck-ass sissies with no jobs, baggy pants, and dyed hair.
Out There: This word is usually used to
describe someone with non-conforming ideals or standards. In other words,
if you're out there, you're either
considered crazy, weird and unusual, or outrageous.
Dope: Can be used to express satisfaction
of something. Examples: "Those are some dope
pants." or "that's dope." It's just another
way of saying cool
Generation X: This one REALLY bugs me. I
hate it. It's just a stupid buzz word that's caught on by the media to
describe the emerging MTV generation of pathetic losers. Pepsi has jumped
on the bandwagon with their new "Generation NeXt" campaign, and all the
losers are buying into it! I hate pepsi.
The Information Super Highway: Stupid.
Nobody that uses the internet calls it an information
super highway (as opposed to an information street? or an
information avenue?). The only good thing about this phrase is that it's
a good way of finding out how little someone knows about the internet if
they say it.
Fly: He/She/it/that is fly. It's another way of expressing the
something (see dope).
Hacker: Extremely overused. It seems like
anyone that knows how to use DOS or Unix is considered a hacker by the media and the ignorant. It's
almost an insult and a cliche to be called a hacker anymore. Real hackers sit in
basements all night long on their computer, deciphering pages and pages of
hex with little or no consideration for hygene, eat stale/cold pizza and
crackers, don't use windows 95, don't have lives of any sort, don't care
to have lives of any sort, know unix inside out, and are resourceful.
Being able to find bugs in a system and to exploit those bugs to your
benefit, and being able to decipher encrypted files/passwords is what
hacking is about. I'm not a hacker. Anyone that labels themselves
as a hacker probably isn't one.
The Artist Formerly Known As: I think this
one is self-explanatory.
Cyber-chat, Cyber-sex, Cyber-world. Lame. It's just
another buzz word.
Now That's what I'm Talking About: Usually
pronounced "Now thas what I'm talkin' 'bout". It's used when
someone is pleased or satisfied with something. It's another way of
saying "I'm impressed". It's just wrong.
Money: It's a way of saying something is
good or valid. Like if someone shot a basketball towards a basketball
hoop, and it had a good chance of going in, the shooter might say
something like "That's money". It's
Raise the Roof / Turn it up: It's that
stupid gesture people do where they lift their arms up and down like
they're lifting something up. It's stupid, and nobody should do it.
Head Panning: The panning of the head
from left to right, and slightly forward. When done correctly, you
can follow a point on top of the person's head, to form a perfect capital
'Z'. This is usually done when someone can't win a fight with the people
they're arguing with, and they know it. So they move their heads around
and get bug-eyed to look intimidating. Sometimes the phrases "Oh no you
don't" or "Oh no I didn't" are accompanied with it.
The Hand: The action of putting your hand
up (palm facing towards the person) so that the person you were talking to
can no longer see your eyes or face, usually accompanied with a 90 degree
jerking of the head to the left or right, as to further ignore the person
you were talking to.
