What is it with Americans and creating random slang

it's just a newer form of saying something is "cool".


"groovy!"
"far out, man!"
"radical"
"cool"
"based"

all the same in essence but arising from different generations and their times

it kind of is overdue for "cool" to be replaced with a newer slang term (now it's "based")........

"cool" is very old.... but I just want "groovy" to make a comeback. I want to be able to go around and describe people and things as "groovy" but people won't take it seriously if I start trying to bring back "groovy". I wonder if this is by accident or if the Zionists deliberately killed "groovy".

Based is usually used to recognize that someone kept it real / told the truth without caring about being cancelled. And tbh I’ve heard more British folks use that word than Americans :gaasdrink:
It's really popular with 4chaners/alt-right types

Based is not even a new slang. Kind of old and used for several years now.

People also rarely use this word in real life, it is internet slang for ''doesn't give a f*ck/goes against the mainstream opinion''.

It started with them, but now it has branched off and is even used by lefties. Even pepe started with them and now is also used by lefties.

You Canuck niggas have some good slang. Mandem, ting and all dat. I see you, niggas. I see you.

Lool thanks to the Jamaican influence, they make up most of the blacks here. Only use it to code-switch when conversing with other blacks (including Somalis) so you don't stick out like a pretentious tool.

Any Geeljire influences on the slang? I heard there was some but nothing comes to mind right now.

“Based” is originally a Bay Area slang for being authentic and not caring about what others think, rapper lil b was the first to make the slang more widespread before the alt-right started using it
