In my case, not old, just "out of it".

They used to make me feel old too. But recently I finally decided to get rid of my old-fashioned "flip phone" and I bought a real iPhone. Someone texted me and insist I learn how to do it-- so now I can. (There are still some things I don't know about texting).

But the upside is-- now that I'm texting, I feel like a Millenial-- I feel young again!

LOL-- I was already "out of it" when I was a teenager!

That's funny. My daughters always used to text me on my flip phone, texting was in the family package. I hated it. Now I prefer to get a text. I have had a "smart phone" for over ten years now. 

Did you ever imagine we would carry something like that in our pocket daily?

Actually I had thought of that. In fact I had thought that in the future we'd carry something smaller-- like a Dick Tracy watch. And because it was too small fopr text, it would communicate via voice inside.

And in our homes there'd be big screens on every wall-- not only for TV but also you could converse with them. Sitting in the Living roon , for example, You could say say "make dinner" and it would ask what you wanted.

That technology already exists and is rapidly improving.

And of course they've been working on perfecting driverless cars for a while...

(When I was a kid I was a real "nerd" (or is the correct expressions a "geek"...I stayed up late reading Science fiction and I wanted to be a Chemist when I grew up. In High School I used to walk around with a slide ruled attached to my belt-- and had a pocket protector full of different coloured pens in it).

When I first got my flip phone I got the cheapest acct they had (T Mobile)-- only voice. Later they added texting at no addition cost but I didn't use it until  I got my modern cellphone, a few months ago.

Okay, after perusing some of the definitions most of them I would never use in my vernacular.

There does seem to be an excess of profanity-- almost as if they think by being pornographic they will make people think that they are "cool".

The list of 30 you posted on another article contained the words "greet" and "disgust", which were the only two I was absolutely certain of their traditional meaning, but I would not know their more recently expanded meanings or the meanings of any of the other words, and might only guess their meanings from the context in which they would be used.  But then I'm at a disadvantage, becasue I only majored in English Literature at university and taught English at a high school for 6 years.  I rarely text on my phone so I don't get to see expressions like "U R L8" very often, and I still know how to write in cursive. LOL

U R L8

When people started using the Internet, because communication was by typing, they wanted abbreviations. So TLA's developped (Three Letter Acronyms). Many didn't survive, some did. (Currently the most widely used one is LOL). Also IMO. .WTF? 

Later "MLAs" developed-- Multi-letter Acronyms. (LOL -> ROFL -> ROFLMAO). CUL8R TTFN IMHO IMNSHO 

 INALB. INALBIPOOTV. (The  longer ones were mostly for comic effect and not used much).

Then emotiocons developped-- the most widely used being the regular smiley :-)

Now Millennials frown on the use of old fashioned emoticons-- instead they use Emojis which are similar but more detailled-- they are really little pictures originally developed in Japan.

OK I only know one of those. I would have to run them by my 20 somethings to see how trending they really are.

Actually I think there are new ones invented every day-- and most of them probably only last a few days-- if that.But a few seem to have staying power.

(Its possible but these expressions come and go more quickly now-- because they are spread on the Internet.).

3.1.1  seeder  Krishna  replied to  Krishna @3.1    7 months ago

Also I think that now that social media's so popular, memes and certain jargon that used to be used only in a small group can spread really quickly. For example "regionalisms"-- expression that were previously used only in parts of the South-- or in the Northeast. Or in "Urban Ghettos". etc. Or amongst rock musicians, or R&B musicians or even amongst classical musicians. 

Some are no longerused-- so if you say, for example

Hey that's really groovy, man!

People may laugh at you-- that's soooo 60s!

I think that because of the widespread use of the Internet, the rate of changeis accelerating  (and of many things, not just technology). There are pros and cons to this....

There even was a time when people could do simple mathematical equations in their heads, like add, subtract, multlply and divide - but that was before computerized cash registers were invented.  It was when they looked like this:

My grandfather and his brothers had those in their dry goods / clothing stores.
