We have always had slang, those words that all the cool kids say to simplify the meaning of other words. As with everything though slang doesn’t stay the same but evolve, change, or are created over the years to the point that the slang we used as kids wouldn’t have any real modern day equivalent.

To give us an idea of just how much slang can change even a relatively short period of time the folks at put together this entertaining infographic of slang words over the last twenty years.

About the Author

Steven has been around the tech world long enough to see most of the stuff we think of cool happen before which leads to a certain bit of cynicism that has contributed to him being known as the cranky old fart of the Internet. Besides sharing some of the goodness that he finds with you here at 42x you can also find him curating some digital goodness at Winextra (tech type stuff) and Rotten Gumdrops (for your daily dose of WTF).
