This week’s 40,000-foot-view of youth options some new slang (which might be already outdated as a result of I find out about it), unhealthy habits in Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, and a pop icon coming to the protection of a fan.
New slang, defined: Rizz, wokefishing, and serving cunt
Let’s check out some new slang that children are utilizing. However earlier than we do, in case you are over 30, you need to swear you received’t use any of those phrases in dialog—have some self-respect. The one exception is if you happen to’re attempting to embarrass your youngsters.
Rizz: A shortened type of “charisma,” “rizz” means being charming, suave, and likable. It’s normally utilized in relation to a romantic accomplice. In the event you add “up,” it may be used as a verb too, that means to allure. Instance: “I’m going to rizz up some women in Roblox.”
Healthful: I’m positive you realize what “healthful” means, however use of the phrase has change into extraordinarily widespread amongst youthful individuals over the previous few years as a manner of describing something that’s good, regular, optimistic, and/or honest. “That’s so healthful!” somebody would possibly say upon watching a mom push their youngster on a swing or an previous couple hug.
Wokefishing: Wokefishing combines “woke” and “catfishing” to explain the unwholesome courting technique of feigning social consciousness with a view to get laid. Wokefishing is exhibiting up on the ladies’s march with a pink hat solely since you heard a number of chicks can be there. Like each “getting laid technique,” wokefishing been round eternally; it’s solely the identify that’s new.
Cleavage intercourse: We used to name this “titty-fucking.”
Serving cunt: Regardless of our historical past of utilizing the c-word as a slur, “serving cunt” is a celebratory phrase that means, “to be highly effective in an unapologetic and female method.”
Examples of serving cunt embody Martha Stewart posing on the duvet of the Sports activities Illustrated swimsuit situation at 80 years previous, Sharon Stone in each Fundamental Intuition and The Fast and the Lifeless, and the whole lot The Runaways ever recorded. Though it refers to a female model of kicking ass, any gender can serve cunt.
The phrase as it’s at present getting used grew out of the drag group, and has since change into the meme-of-the-moment, with on-line individuals (significantly on Twitter) asking find out how to serve cunt in quite a lot of methods, and commenters arising with the reply. Examples:
Are “bizarre walks” destined to change into the health development of the summer time?
TikTok health tendencies are normally iffy, however I can completely get behind the thought of “bizarre walks.” Created by TikToker leuvenzoekt, a bizarre stroll is whenever you exit and stroll till you discover one thing uncommon or unusual. It is likely to be a taxidermied animal holding an indication, a pagan ritual, or a gigantic peanut-man. When you’ve noticed one thing odd, can name it a day and trudge residence, or take a video of your discover and submit it on TikTok, the place the bizarre walks hashtag has over 7 million views.
I really like this development, as a result of it takes the “seriousness” (and boringness) out of getting exterior and getting some train. It turns taking a stroll into slightly journey—a quest with a win situation—and it retains individuals considering, noticing, and being alive. The world wants extra bizarre walks, and I’d go on one proper now, however I’ve Koroks to torture.
Torturing Koroks in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom
Like each different gamer, I blew the mud off my Nintendo Swap this week to play The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. The epic open-world journey sport has been incomes effusive reward from each players and critics alike for its sandbox physics puzzles, completely tuned gameplay, and the truth that it’s a brand new freaking Zelda sport.
Tears of the Kingdom’s craft-anything system permits gamers to not solely invent distinctive options to in-game issues, it additionally lets them showcase the cool and unusual stuff they provide you with. Like this working mech, this fighter airplane, many warfare machines, and much more penises.
However many players are utilizing the physics and machines within the sport to torture Koroks in modern methods. Like crucifying them, burning them on the stake, and making them re-enact 9/11. I normally frown upon wanton cruelty, however within the case of Koroks and their maddening puzzles, I make an exception. They deserve all of it.
Viral video of the week: Taylor Swift vs a random. safety guard
This week, everyone seems to be sharing the video of Taylor Swift sticking up for one in all her followers throughout the Philly cease of her Eras tour. On the present, a safety guard was being aggressive to some Swifties, and Taylor, with out lacking a word of “Dangerous Blood,” began serving cunt from the stage, telling the guard, “she’s wonderful,” “hey cease!” and “she wasn’t doing something!”
Video of the confrontation unfold in all places, and the sound clip of the guard being berated took off on TikTok, with followers making parody movies, lip-syncing alongside, and making use of Swiftian “Hey Cease!” energy to moments in their very own lives. Reportedly the fan, Kelly Inglis Kelly, actually was solely dancing. The safety guard was reportedly escorted from the constructing after the incident. I predict that Taylor Swift won’t ever carry out this tune once more with out joyous followers including the “She wasn’t doing something!” half.
