Exactly! I was first aware of the words swagger and braggadocio as synonyms in the 70s, for goodness sakes.

Yes, I just learned the currently popular new meaning given to the word, "taint." I believe Jon Stewart is responsible for that one.

Now, frenemy is a new word. Also fairly new are the new meanings of twitter and tweet, gate rape, asshat, douchenozzle, da bomb, dope, bling, woot, good china, gangsta, youtube, beyotch, fuckbuddy, sike (psych), shizz or shizznit, bro, brosef, gay (meaning not cool), fundie, mofo, and dozens more.
I'm only 40....And to hear the word used to describe a person as anything other than the way they walk, is odd to me. Never heard of it this way until about two years ago.
As for the other words,

Frenemy is a new word...Not an old word with a new meaning.

Twitter: Definatly an old word with a new meaning.

Tweet: Again, same as twitter.

"Gate rape": I've never heard of this phrase or grouping of words yet until now.

Asshat: I've used this word since the 80's. Didn't know it was anything other than slang.

douchenozzel: Again, it is an apparatus, but it is generally used as slang.

"da bomb": slang

dope: Used in many many different ways since it's inception. Most recently heard by me; "That car is SO DOPE!" New meaning for an old word.



I could go on an on as you have, but I'm too bored and tired. LOL

I get the picture, but the reality is that swagger has been being used in an odd context more recently. It's the way our english language evolves. I don't think I ever said it was a "bad thing", but it is definatly odd...at least to an older generation anyway. I'm just not up on all the "hip new lingo" now. I guess I'm getting "old".



Hey you whipper snappers! Get away form my porch! LOL

Gate rape is what you experience getting x-rayed or patted down at airport security.

Play on the phrase date rape which is also a newish term. I was date raped back in 1975 and I didn't realize it til decades later.

My metabolism is a wreck. I could be 150 which isn't bad because I am tall, but two years later I could be 200. Then two years later back to 150. I jump around like that constantly.

I learned along time ago, its not looks that matter in anyone really. Last time I got seriously hit on, the guy said I was sexy because I was reading a book about quantum string theories. Which clearly wasn't about my weight at all. LOL

I think nerdy techno shit is attractive too. I'd be more inclined to hit on someone who was reading about chemistry or robotics than someone reading about music or art (or a Heinlein novel).

haha Awesome! Not enough chics are hot like us!

I do swing both ways though... as in art and science! LOL

Smart people are sexy. Despite their shape or size. I have always thought that.
