roc6783: cgraves67: UrCa: ***snip***That's the usage that I am familiar with as well, but somehow some people are beginning to use it as the opposite of FAIL it seems. Perhaps they are connotating it to the word swagger.I clearly missed that too, thanks for the culture update.Also, WTF is "Twee"?
WhippingBoy: StoPPeRmobile: Bill Frist: Nerds were never really cool, but at least it used to mean that you liked a certain class of things that other people didn't like (just like being a punk or goth did with other things).Now every farking person calls themselves a nerd just cause they... like what everyone else likes!If it takes me a couple of hours to know all you know about a topic, you are not a nerd.But I have glasses and I'm wearing a "Talk Nerdy to Me" t-shirt!!!
Der Poopflinger: I hate the term "epic" because most of the time it's being used by some retard in a completely stupid fashion.
tobcc: Skinny Jeans are fine, on hot women, men should never, ever wear them.
SockMonkeyHolocaust: WhippingBoy: I have to agree. I like the aesthetics and concept of steam punk, but I can't take it seriously due to it's over exposure. I have more respect for bronies or furries than I do for people wearing "steampunk" fashions.Steampunk is a condiment, not a main course.It's a great idea and has limitless potential, but the people who get involved with it (like in any kind of niche thing) demand that it has to adhere to a narrow list of requirements and then get seriously bent out of shape whenever people question it.Then there's this:Follow Nicole Knickerbocker Hawthorn (Nickie Nick) as she discovers her destiny as The Protector, a powerful vampire hunter. Ashe, a dark and mysterious stranger, helps Nickie and her friends solve the mystery behind several bizarre disappearances. Suitable for teens, enjoyed by adults, the story is full of interesting steampunk gadgets, mad scientists, bloodthirsty vampires, and mesmerized zombies. This paranormal adventure is sure to appeal to fans of Boneshaker, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and The Vampire Diaries.There are people who post in this thread that will consider this fine literature.
Skyrmion: The idea that steampunk is somehow "overexposed" to anyone who hasn't gone well out of their way to look for it is ridiculous.
smimmy: I just do not understand this generation at all.
NASAM: haha. My 43 yo brother in law wears skinny jeans. I showed him this picture and told him "this is what you look like".
Uncle Tractor: Tax Boy: #24 Zombies in everything/2013 is going to be the year of the mummyYeah. Enough zombies, and that includes mummies.(mummy = TP'd zombie)
Tax Boy: #24 Zombies in everything/2013 is going to be the year of the mummy
Pick: 23. Obama's presidency
Stone Meadow: The word "Swag"? Really? That word has been around for FIVE-HUNDRED farking years. And when someone my age uses it we aren't talking about being gay.
