    I've been listening to a lot of Lil B lately, and it dawned on me that when kids used to make fun of each other, back before "clowned on" became a term, we used to say "You got based on" - what terms did kids use when you were in elementary, etc?

      I remember when "diss" "dilio" and "phat" became part of the vernacular.

            Socialization. If you want pure "learning" and no interaction with others you do homeschool. It's ok, I know you don't like socialism.

              I remember "That's tight!" and "That's off the chain!" being used.

                I remember "tight" too. Also "radical" "gnarly" and "bad" meaning "good" which was of course in 1987.

                  and "tubular"
                  Kids really liked surfing words, for some reason.
