Stupid, inexplicable or fucked up fads and trends

Completely off-topic conversational diarrhea that the rest of the internet won't let you post anywhere because it's so pointless and irrelevant to anything important.

Stupid, inexplicable or fucked up fads and trends

Post by spirochete » Wed Apr 08, 2015 12:02 am

I'm going to kick this off with something that makes me want to throw rocks at the internet.

There is a recent saying, "on fleek", which means you look good all the time, especially in photos.

http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=on+fleek

I hate the sound of it so much, and I want it to go away. I don't get why (probably young) people these days seem to want to trash language so hard. You end up with shit like:

"Cuz I dnt lyk tht LOL jk jk your a slut YOLO yu n ur bae wnt 2 hang 2moro"

It really does seem to take more effort than just typing proper sentences.

Bah.

Am I showing my age? :)

Man, don't even get me started on the bastardized language trends of Gen Y and the Millennials. Kids these days seem to equate what my generation called "cool" with how far they can fuck up the written and/or spoken word while still getting their point across to their peers. Drives me nuts.

The worst thing, IMHO, is when they know better but choose not to use English correctly. It's one thing to be uneducated or ignorant (like seajayjay for example), but even well educated and intelligent kids throw around "swegga" and "YOLO" and "on fleek" for popularity and enhanced social status, especially on social media. I guess using correct spelling and grammar is just not cool anymore. =(

Yeah. What do you think will be the next trend?

My money is on not walking properly. :)
