First time seeing “no cap” was in this thread an hour ago. It just means “for real!” or “no BS”?

Essentially "no lie". It's dumb.

I'm assuming no one under 40 uses "no cap" in old-line print media? It's something I'd only hear/read if I were hanging with a lot of 20-somethings and/or if I were all over social media?

According to this ... "cap" and "no cap" are (were?) terms that came from the hip-hop world and are now ubiquitous among TikTok users.

I assume when they wrote "hip-hop world" ... they didn't mean Run DMC, The Fat Boys, Kool Moe Dee, Eric B & Rakim, etc.

These pretzels are making me horny

"#### you 2016". People died in 2015 and will continue to die next year. Every time a famous person dies there's about a million tweets saying fu 2016. Stop.

In this vein, the whole "momma bear" thing absolutely infuriates me.  Shut up, mini-van-driving soccer mom.

Sounds about right. I hear it from teen-20's youtubers, almost always black or wannabe cool non-black kids.

Unknown locally, thank Jebus.

(Is "Jebus" still cool? :D )

For me, sure.

 

maybe someone else’s term to be retired

"Jebus" will always be funny.  Maybe not cool but definitely funny.

So this is what happens if you don't do Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram, etc.? You just miss a ton?

But did you really miss it? I think I would have gone with:

"So this is what happens if you don't do Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram, etc.? You are truly blessed?"

It's the kind of stupid made up work my teenage boys use all the time.  When "merch" was the hot new slang they were using, I said I am making up my own slang word "skerz" that means...well...whatever I want it to mean in the moment.  If they ever hit me with a "no cap" or some other slang I don't know, I just reply "skerz" to communicate agreement, or disagreement as the context or my lack of understanding calls for.

a lot more crypto punk art stuff is popping out too - I joined twitter for football and humor.  If I muted "bitcoin" and "topshot" - at this point I'd lose 3/4 of my timeline ...:D

Mattek is the only of those I ever followed and unfollowed him quite a while back.

In the ff twitter world, I'm more annoyed by the arrogance that most of them display that they would be better NFL gm's/head coaches because they subscribe to Warren Sharp's website.

"Deep dive" meaning investigate further.

Deep dive is my boss' cue to punt and find something else to focus on.  Ah, it just dawned on me that I am a professional punt returner.  Think I'll print out a color pics of Rick Upchurch and Billie "White Shoes" Johnson and pin them by my desk, and wait for others to figure it out.

The Overzet crew is entertaining but they are also ridiculous degens. I feel like Pete knows it’s all a bit for content. I’m not so sure about the others.

I checked back a few pages but didn't see this one that is currently annoying the heck out of me.

Tuttle seems the most reasonable of the bunch.  Soccer Dave and Davis really like themselves but can be entertaining.

Yeah I find it entertaining. I like their drunken best ball drafts in the summer. They are so arrogant but it’s funny.

I had only ever heard this used by the SPCA referring to a newly-adopted animal, and it never really bothered me, but this other use is horrible.

They're probably also the agents quickest to send out those postcards asking the same clients to remember them when it's time to sell that home.

“To give Key the best view and the best chance to be successful when he does return to the major leagues, it does make sense to get him some type of rehab at-bats prior to activating him,” Tomczyk said. “But, again, those conversations are ongoing. Nothing has been truly socialized that far out.”

Nope.  Still not okay.  It's only fine if you're four or under.

Haha was being sarcastic.  Have only ever heard the term used by 30-something women who are trying way too hard to be cute and cool :P  It's an instant turn off when they say they have a 'doggo'

I totally got the sarcasm.  I figured I'd heap on the scorn.

"Length" when describing the height of an NFL prospect. This is dumb.

"Concept" when describing an offensive or defensive strategy, or a type of restaurant. This isn't inherently dumb, but it's way overused.

We watch HGTV and drink every time someone says "open concept."
