Let's see.... Probably "boosted" because it's supposed to be a derogatory term, but it doesn't sound like one, unless you wanna classify it as a euphemism.

"Flex" seriously, where the [BAD WORD] did this word come from? It sounds stupid, and its usage is even moreso.

    I'm re, re-claiming the word "Boosted" to what it was originally intended to describe, the act of nicking something, in particular a "Boosted VHS tape" or a "Dubbed" tape = Pirated video, also usable for software piracy in general.

    Other words / phrases that also piss me off no end:

    • "Cray Cray"
    • "Feels"
    • "Woke"
    • "Salty" - Actually I'm re-claiming this word, Salty ACTUALLY means to be "worth ones salt" - or skilled in your chosen career.
    • Bae
    • Yolo (just. . . just dont)

    Yee haw

    It was already cancerous enough when Deep South rednecks said it

    Now we have pasty white Midwest chicks and pasty white British chicks and pasty Aussies saying it as well

    Please no

    Do you know who is worse than that person who has no argument and so uses the toxic phrase "git gud"?

    Those who clicked "Awesome" underneath it!

    I see well reasoned argument, paragaphs of cleverly though out opinion and well written dialogue. They get nothing. A single Git Gud? Three [BAD WORD] awesomes!

    "Feels bad man"

    Google says its something to do with a frog meme but I don't get why its a thing for streamers to keep saying it constantly.

    The term boosted originally comes from real competitive games where you can purchase eloboosting services (or your friends do it)

    In DBD you dont need other person to boost you up to ranks where you dont belong, just select a few broken perks/items and voila

    Yeet. It seems to be used in every possible context, and has so many meaning it doesn't really have one.

    Big brain, Big brain play, that guy's got an IQ200 big brain etc.

    But its an insult? I don't get it.

    English is not my native so I actually don't know which words have become popular in the last 5 years but I don't like the word yeet and thicc, thick etc.

    Wow, I have so many of these, yet right now I can't think of them any off them top of my head.

  • JawsIsTheNextKillerJawsIsTheNextKiller Member Posts: 541

    I had to ask the Urban Dictionary what Thicc, yeet and boosted were this very week. It's very difficult to keep up.

    Slang, hmmm

    Anything in rap music I will consider apart of this
