It's hard to keep up with slang.

Those of us who are entering the workforce were teenagers back when "cool" was still pretty new. So every once in awhile, we hear a word like "stan," and we go, "heh?"


An unnamed sociology professor decided to start taking inventory on the new slang he was hearing:


Some highlights include: "periodt: see, 'facts'"

"Pull up/come through: an invitation"

"High Key: Very obvious"

"nunya: None of your [business]".




Of course everybody has their own opinions of which word/interpretation is the best:





The Generation Z lexicon is already far more diverse than the millennial lexicon.

Millennial slang includes "Netflix and Chill" and "sorry not sorry" and "extra."

Gen Z includes "yeet," "big mad," and "it really do be like that sometimes."

We millennials sound so old.






And since slang is a sociological study, it makes sense that this particular professor would keep this list.







We'd pay for a complete edition of the lexicon of Gen Z slang. Would you?

Being woken up suddenly is not very good for our health.

Especially for the elderly, it's not something to make a habit of. Sleep interruption can increase blood pressure, cause a worsened self image, and cause a day filled with irritation and confusion.

No one wants to be woken up, but there are definitely some reasons for being woken up that are worse than your alarm clock.

We went to Ask Reddit to find out some of the worst reasons people have been woken up.

People have a habit of excusing crap behavior - honestly because it's often easier in the short term. Long term = flaming dumpster fire.

We live in a time where we are critically re-examining how we pay workers. After a two-year-long pandemic where some low-income and "unskilled" jobs were deemed "essential," we now must put our money where our mouth is.

For too long in the world have incredibly important jobs been overlooked or else outright maligned. Teachers in the USA make some of the least money, career-wise, and have some of the hardest jobs. Dancers pay to put their bodies through hell with no guarantee of paid work after training.

What causes a small town to die?

Honestly, there can be quite a few factors, but perhaps the biggest one is that small towns often lack the upward mobility opportunities that are more available in urban areas.

As a result, many towns around the United States for instance have lost tens of millions of people as their populations seek jobs and opportunities elsewhere.

And what remains of these places can be pretty sketchy.

People told us more after Redditor RadicalizedSnackWrap asked the online community,

"What's a super sketchy US city that we never hear about?"
