Where would I put an entry about that "Truth" anti-smoking campaign? Advertising, or Real Life? I ask because it's technically a PSA, not an ad. If this question is in any way stupid, chalk it up to me needing to go to bed.

PSA is still advertising, IMO.

Is using "totally", "like", "yo", and occasionally adding ones own made-up interjection words that come off as a kind of Gosh Darn It to Heck!* count as this, maybe with shades of Pretty Fly, for a White Guy?

Is "awesome" really considered this? I see this from time to time reading through the examples, but I hear/read the word used a lot(unironically), especially by my age group and younger. So I wouldn't really call it "outdated" yet, at least not like "radical" and such.

The 'Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas' entry contains the following phrase: 'He notes that none of what is described as "drug culture slang" is incorrect'. Shouldn't it be 'everything [...] is incorrect' or 'none [...] is correct' instead?

Somebody said this was an aversion. How old is that troper, exactly.

Ja`mie: Oh my god, ties are so random. Like, what are they anyway, just pieces of fabric?

That's not how random is used. Random means "Slightly odd." Random doesn't mean "It doesn't make sense."

This Troper is 15, by the way.

One of the definitions for my random in my dictionary is: "Something that does not logically follow from what occured before."

Technically that means about the same thing as something not making sense.

No, technically it means "something that does not logically follow from what occured before". What occured before ties, that they fail to follow logically from?

Anyway, that's the literal meaning, so is irrelevent as to whether it's being correctly used as slang. (I'm 35, and freely admit I have no idea if it is or not.)
