It's really no secret that most children think their parents are super uncool.

Because of course they are.

Parents didn't have lives or dreams of their own before they had children, right? How could they possibly ever have been fun?

That's sarcasm, by the way. Most people grow out of this attitude, and it usually disappears by the time a kid gets through their teenage years, when pretty much anything their parents do turns their faces red with embarrassment.

But suppose you, the parents, wanted to embarrass your kids anyway, say by reviving a slang term or two?

People shared their thoughts after Redditor the-tinman asked the online community,

"What are some slang terms a 50 year old dad can say to his daughter to embarrass her?"

Ummm...

"Just say "whatup fam?" Then when they get mad yell "worldstar."

Do I even want to know what the hell "worldstar" is? Ugh. I'm old now.

This is actually sweet.

"I am taking my 14 year old daughter and her friends to an Anime convention. They are all dressing up to cosplay anime characters. I decided to dress up as Indiana Jones, And I guess that is the worst thing in the world."

For them? Yeah. Bonus points if you quote some awesome Indy lines.

"When something surprises you..."

"When something surprises you, say you are “shook."

And when you're really, really surprised, say that you're "shooketh."

Say what?

"Wuss poppin' Jimbo?"

LordMalgus

How about you don't but we'll say that you did?

"Wait..."

"Wait till she’s in an argument with your spouse, or being slightly verbose in a public place, pull out your phone and shout “world star!"

citizen_tronald_rump

There it is again! Do I really need to start adding this to my vocabulary? Because I really don't want to.

Bruh!

"Say bruh after literally every sentence."

Your mother and i have decided we are getting a divorce. Bruh.

Like that?

"He did things like..."

"My dad never used slang terms. He did things like ask if I applied my rash cream and if my gum disease was bothering me in front of people."

This sounds like it definitely impacted your ability to get dates.

"Ugh..."

"Ugh, my 60 year old mother loves to say things are ”the puff daddy” when she thinks something is awesome or superior. So you should probably point out things that you also find to be the “puff daddy."

[deleted]

She knows exactly what she's doing.

An evil genius.

"I used..."

"I used the "You ain't woke fam. I'm too lit" on my 15 yr old daughter. I'm 46. Her exact response, walking by without looking at me. "I don't even think you understand what you are saying."

moby1kenobi

Plot twist: But you did.

You totally did.

"I'm partial to saying..."

"I’m partial to saying “I’m finna pop a goog” instead of “I’m going to google this thing." I’ve received mixed responses."

alpha11411

Gee, I wonder why?

Hmmm...

"My dad..."

"My dad tells me to stay woke."

[deleted]

Daddy sounds bomb.

And there you have it. If you have a kid, they better watch out. But do report back. The results are undoubtedly hilarious.

NSFW Details About Historical Figures Left Out Of History Books

It's very popular to create rumors about certain historical figures to which there is no concrete evidence.

Such as the sexual orientation of Abraham Lincoln or the alleged illicit behavior of Lewis Carroll and Hans Christian Andersen.

Understandably, these mostly baseless, though not necessarily false, theories are left out of history books.

However, there are facts about legends of history which have, indeed, been proven true, but are also left out of history books.

Namely, because it's not the sort of information many would consider in polite conversation, let alone be talked about in schools.

Even if it is no less fascinating than anything else we might learn.

Conspiracy Theories People Absolutely Believe Are True

We've sure been hearing the term "conspiracy theory" a lot lately.

And if history has taught us anything, it's that it would do us all good to avoid them altogether as they are rooted in falsehoods tied to clandestine government plans and sinister plots–which, yeah, doesn't sound good.

But like anyone spinning a rumor, people tend to latch on to spurious information that cannot be verified by science or fact because it's just easy to go along with it without taking the time for research.

But there are some conspiracy theories that do make us wonder if there is something to them.

You don't have to be acquainted with someone to know enough about the kind of person they are.

Observing their attitude around people or what clothes they wear can easily give away a stranger's temperament that identifies them as either superficial or genuine.

Of course, being judgmental based on one's appearance is not an unfair assessment. However, you know deep down inside, we all have the predisposition to do exactly that.

Affairs and infidelity are sadly a more common part of life than we care to admit.

People cheat. it seems to be part of the human condition.

Are we meant to be monogamous?

That's a story for a different article.

I say though, if you're going to cheat... have some basic human decency.

Don't cheat with people you all know.

And how are BFFs not automatically off limits?
