:sl: dear readers... you'll forgive me but I find myself reading code words on this forum where I have to be under the false pretense that I actually understand.. I think it is just maybe a UK or Australian thing?

I am not quite sure where to look for meaning, and trust me sometimes I even look in the dictionary of the vulgar tongue


what is
1-Erm
2-Init
3-dag
4-Geezah
5->>3

feel free to add your own conundrums and expand my vocabulary

thank you

:sl:

1. Erm: A noise indicating hesitation, or sometimes used when correcting somebody who you think made a bad mistake, eg ''erm, it was the Allies who won WWII, not Burma...'

2. Innit: 'Isn't it'. A British word, usually associated with a London accent or, less innocently, 'gangstas' and chavs.

3. I have absolutely no ideِa.

4. I dunno, might be 'give us a'.

5. Same as 3. Haven't got a clue.

On a different note, my keyboard seems to write in Arabic if I press control and shift at the same time. I have no idea what I'm writing though.

شلاؤيثبلاهتنمةىخحضقسفعرصءغئ

See what I mean? That was the English alphabet.

:w: Erm - Um in American slang. Like when you're thinking of something to say you say ''umm''.
Init - Ain't it? Right? Like when you're looking for agreeance or assurance of something. It's like eh for Canadians.
Dag - Dag? I think you mean 'dang' sis, which is the same thing as ****.
Geezah - Hmm, never heard of this one actually!
>>3 - It's actualyl <3, which is a sideways heart that means love.

Hope I was of help inshaa'Allah.

;D ;D sometimes you have to wonder what it hip.. I mean just being five year behind everyone else makes you in again, 'so not hip it is oh so hip'..

yeah sometimes I call my friend and ask her what is 'cool' with the youngens today I feel so out of touch..
luckily clothes are still in, although there is no gurantee they will be around for long..

even the gadgets I own are so dated
my sony clie isn't even on the market anymore, so I can't even buy memory sticks or programs for it... 'init' a crying shame to spend so much money on a tiny machine and not get any mileage out of it? imsad...
anyhow I hear brains are in, gadgets out :lol:

peace

I think maybe taking the mickey or mick and taking the piss are synonymous? :? Or perhaps I am wrong.

Let's wait for one of the Britons to clear this up for us.

:sl:

you were correct as far as the word alone goes, mick is a racist term to describe people of Irish origin. British neo-Nazis and other "superior" people have a term to describe every race on planet

Don't worry snakey don't worry...you know what counts... extraneous details aren't needed, trust me there are things I'd have been much better off not knowing about--
